Dear Mr.  Lehmberg:

I have been cataloging UFO sightings for nearly 20 years now.

I have pillaged the personal libraries of UFO people who go back
decades before I ever started... all to get what I consider the
best UFO cases on record, in reasonably large number and

The fact is that few useable UFO reports ever emanated from India
and Pakistan, and that is much the case today.

If two or three came in tomorrow, it would be like the ice cream
vendor who "doubled his staff in one week" (He hired his wife.)

I'm sure there are plenty of sightings on the Indian
sub-continent but they just don't "get out" where we can study
them. This is due (I suspect) to cultural, religious, political,
and other ethnological reasons... compounded by horrid
governments and communications facilities of equal merit.

I like your idea of comparing sightings, before and after atomic
testing. I just don't think it will work in countries so
retrograde as to conduct 1950's style atomic tests in 1998.

Best wishes

- Larry Hatch
