Dear Indic wikimedians,
Thank you very much for the welcome messages and for making me feel at home.
Over the past few years I have interacted with many of you for the various Indic Wiki related activities and we have done many successful projects. Thank you very much for all those wonderful projects. Now when we are moving to a different phase of growth of Wikimedia in India, I request more support from your side.
To get started we shall together develop a plan for Indic language wikis and design few pilot projects to gain learnings to drive growth. I propose to develop this plan collaboratively and openly - in true wiki style. This will include focused Indic language meetups, virtual meetings, desk research and constantly synthesizing the findings from all of these into learnings. These learnings will then flow into pilots that we will implement and review and learn from.
For this purpose, I will be using the following page http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_-_India_Programs/Indic_Languages. It is very preliminary right now - but will keep updating it. The page will give you a flavor of the kind of process and methodology I plan to use - and also give you a hint of the end output. However, I stress that is nothing more than a stub right now. So please provide your suggestions.
