RMIC was the first Internet discussion forum devoted to Indian classical music.
1. Access the rmic archives via FTP here. (archives were maintained up to mid-1995 only)
2. Access the FAQ or Frequently Asked Questions for RMIC

Below is a photo of some of the early contributers to rmic. It was taken at the Cleveland Thyagaraja Aradhana Festival in April 1995.

Left to right Top row: Ramasubramanian Ramakrishnan aka Subu, Satish Ananthaiyar, Ramesh Vaidhyanathan (all Purdue).

Middle row: Mani Vembar (Cleveland), Mohan Ayyar (Sydney), Usha Rani Pannapalli (Purdue), Praveen Dala (Philladelphia), Aravinda Pillalamarri (Boston). I don't think the little mami to the left of Mani reads rmic!

Bottom row: Balaji (Detroit), Shrivas Sudarshan (Philladelphia), Nandu Gopalakrishnan (Washington D. C).
