We have hundreds of registered users from India, but most accounts have been deactivated.
Looking forward to seeing you on the playa this year.
Again, WELCOME and make yourself at home here.

Take a look through the theme camp threads, and the theme camp pages on the burning man site. There should be lots of camps recruiting here in a bit, as tickets start falling into place (or not). I live too far from all my village mates to contribute much to the pre-burn prep, but once onsite we make up for it. Different camps have different requirements, but most of them really work with the newbies.

. . . Hi Janki! Lots of theme camps accept people from all over, not just hometown members. Most camps seek a contribution of 1) a bit of work at the event, to help their mission come to life, and 2) a bit of money to help pay for what they give Black Rock City, and whatever comforts they provide their members--almost always shade for you; maybe other things like showers, or meals.
Theme camps are not required, just one of many options. My favorite thing is to camp with one or two friends and visit theme camps whenever it seems like fun.
However, when you're coming from overseas, having a theme camp--to help, and be helped by--can make things easier. You can look in the 2012 Theme Camps forum and look for a camp that appeals. You'll want to make sure that you like your camp's goal. You probably have several months to join a camp, so keep an eye on this forum and around ePlaya:

Thanks a ton once again!
We are from Coimbatore and have got tickets for Burning man as well and whats more in common is that I am celebrating my Birthday close to Burning man (on the 25th August) Just cant wait for August!
