In inform to you that I have taken a project of Wikivoyage for Bengali version. I create a main page for that. If you all Kindly help the Bengali Wikivoyage by your contribution.

Wikipedia Event Page
It requested to everybody please register yourself, Seats are limited,on
first come first served basis. Registration is free of cost.
As I conveyed to you earlier, we shall not be able to participate in Spring
Fest this year. I, on behalf of the Wikimedia India Chapter Kolkata
community, sincerely apologize for our inability.
The entire Kolkata community is busy with preparations for the stall at
Kolkata Book Fair, starting 29 January and continuing till 9 February.
Preparations for the same would start from 19 January and continue till the
inauguration on 28 January. In this situation it would be really difficult
for us to conduct Wiki Academy at IIT Kharagpur sometime between 24-26
January. So we have formally decided to call it off year at our internal
meeting held last week. We were waiting for your mail, so that we could
reply back to.
Even though we are not able to participate in Spring Fest this year, we
would definitely like to participate next year. Kindly let us know your
dates in advance, so that we can plan accordingly. We would also like to
convey to you that we are open to conducting workshops any time during the
year. It doesn't always have to be a Spring Fest or some big occasion to
have the workshop. It can be done in anytime during the year.
Thanks and regards,
