You may be aware that we (my family) have released a font family earlier.
Here is some background if you are not aware of it.
On the first death Anniversary of Yogini Joglekar(my aunt), our family
released AksharYogini (Normal) Font on 1st Nov. 2006. This font is
primarily for Marathi language but can also be used for Hindi (for any
language using Devanagari). It also has English support. Later on, on the
occasion of Gudhipadwa (Chaitra Shuddha 1, 1931; that is 27th March 2009) ,
we released the additional fonts to complete the "AksharYogini font
family". This font family was/is made available on the site
http://aksharyogini.sudhanwa.com for free usage/distribution/sharing.
Today, on the occasion of Eighth Death Anniversary of Yogini Joglekar, we
are now releasing an updated "AksharYogini font". This font is also
available on the same website http://aksharyogini.sudhanwa.com
This is an updated font and has support for the new (MS Windows) operating
systems where the internal mechanism for font rendering is changed. Also,
it has additional characters for the current Unicode standard and the Rupee
Sign is also included.
Most important is the licensing. The new release is under the Open Font
License. As such, all Linux distributions will be able to freely use it in
Please feel free to use, share, distribute the new font. You can download
it from http://aksharyogini.sudhanwa.com .

Dear fellow Wikimedians,
(this is important and a rare opportunity -- please do take a few
moments to read.)
I would like to draw your attention to a major piece of news:
The Wikimedia Foundation is convening a community consultation on the
future of Wikimedia work in India, to be held in October in Bangalore,
with significant representation from across India, the different
projects, and the different language communities.
Please see the following page on Meta for details, context, and to begin
discussion the delegates you would like to see participating. All costs
will be borne by the Foundation.
Let's try and keep discussion on the talk page of that page on Meta, so
everyone can follow, even people not on this list.
Also, your help in forward this widely, translating as necessary, etc.,
would be MUCH appreciated. Again, this is an important opportunity, and
we need to ensure we get every community's attention.
I look forward to this conversation very much!

Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share
in the sum of all knowledge. Help us make it a reality!
