When I was young, rms meant “root-mean-square” a form of averaging in alternating current meansurments. Now it means Richard Stallman, icon of FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) or simply, Free Software. He defined the term and began/codified a movement to make sharing OK/acceptable in software.
Sharing is obviously OK in India where RMS filled huge venues (thousands of attendees) for his talks. Being a billion people, India has tens of millions of computer geeks interested in good IT. Those people will do a lot to grease the gears of the Indian economy growing rapidly larger every year. Many of them will influence decisions to use FLOSS and use it themselves.
The tour of India is an inspiration to anyone who reads or hears the FUD the monopolies spread about Free Software. People are making personal investments in FLOSS all around the world.
