We all know that Wikisource is one of the trending Wikimedia projects. We
are getting many new editors and new books to Indic language Wikisource's.
At the same time, we even noticed that there are many problems faced by the
new editors and a few of the existing editors. To help all of the editors
we have created a Handbook titled as *Wikisource Handbook for Indic
*Which is now available to everyone to make the best use of it. I
request everyone to share this with all those who are in need of support in
Authors of the book: Bodhisattwa Mandal and Ananth Subray P V.
Thanks and Regards,
*ANANTH SUBRAY P V*
