Amaresh Deshpande is helping to develop bridge in India. He has written in the ACBL Bulletin and actively promotes, especially for younger players. He is actively involved in teaching bridge in the village of Raibidpura--where he uses bridge to teach math in the schools.
On my 2014 Regent cruise, we are trying to arrange a teaching session. Mr. Deshpande is working on transporting up to 50 students from small villages to one of the ports where we will play bridge.
