"Could they help in Egypt?" Clinton wrote in an email to Maria Otero who then was Under Secretary of State for Civilian Security, Democracy and Human Rights.
Clinton wrote this email on the eve of her meeting with the then Indian foreign secretary Nirupama Rao.
"I am on my way back from India, where I had a very positive meeting with FS Rao and the Indian Election Commission about the prospects for increasing India's role in elections globally and collaborating more closely in third countries," Otero wrote to Clinton on February 14, 2011.
"FS Rao is discussing this proposal with the Election Commission, which is very interested in greater collaboration with American institutions. Bob Blake and I will be following up with India's Chief Election Commissioner when he travels to Washington, DC next week," Otero wrote.
Blake then was the Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia.
India figures quite a few times in the latest trench of emails of Clinton released by the State Department.
