I'm trying to write a piece on Open Content and Open Educational
Resources in India and am asking for your help.

Open Content is defined as:

Reuse - the right to reuse the content in its unaltered / verbatim
form (e.g., make a backup copy of the content)
Revise - the right to adapt, adjust, modify, or alter the content
itself (e.g., translate the content into another language)
Remix - the right to combine the original or revised content with
other content to create something new (e.g., incorporate the content
into a mashup)
Redistribute - the right to share copies of the original content, your
revisions, or your remixes with others (e.g., give a copy of the
content to a friend)[3]

[from: http://opencontent.org/definition/]

Wikipedia and sister projects apart, do you know of content, both
educational and otherwise, in India that would fit this definition?
Assuming a lower threshold as well, that it's just available for free
and no necessarily the other elements, are there resources that come
to mind?

I can think of the NCERT textbooks
[http://www.ncert.nic.in/ncerts/textbook/textbook.htm], NPTEL
[http://nptel.iitm.ac.in/], VASAT [http://vasat.icrisat.org/],
FlexiLearn [http://www.ignouflexilearn.ac.in/flexilearn/] and Pratham
Books, if I say so myself,

What else comes to mind? Examples and links would be very helpful.

Thank you.
