What to bring from afar?

We are often asked by Westerners coming to visit Mysore what they could bring to our kids. Here's a list of practical and useful items that we can definitely use:

     * girl's underwear (the boys wear slightly different styles from those in the US)
     * rubber slippers, all sizes (our kids go through these like they're made of paper!)
     * pencils and pens
     * composition style notebooks
     * bath soap bars
     * laundry soap
     * big bottles of shampoo
     * small tubes of toothpaste
     * skin moisturizer
