malayalam to english.That translation helped us a lot for preparing FAQ for
Hindi Wikipedia.Special thanks to Shiju Alex and Junad pv who gave this FAQ
its Final pdf form.
Thank you and Regards
and, perhaps this also goes out to the listadmins of the -pune and
-westbengal lists. Will you consider a request to ensure that these
lists are available via gmane.org as well ? It allows one to use a
conventional newreader to go through the lists.
Thanks for the heads up Srikanth and Bala. The website is a bit buggy
on my system. Since I have physical access to the Samacheer textbooks,
I shall have a look and post a full page *review* of it. I'll keep you
both and Sundar updated on the matter. I believe there is a lot of
scope for improvement, which we can suggest. As for the who reads
Further Reading matter, I do. The textbook has always been my mortal
enemy, hence I always stuck to the further reading sections.

cross-posting to reach pan-India; apologies if you have got it from other mailing lists.
As I had mentioned in a previous posting (and as was so touchingly welcomed by so many of of you), Shiju Alex is joining us to lead our Indic Languages initiatives. In this mail (http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimediaindia-l/2011-July/003845.html), I had indicated that he would join around September-October.
I'm really pleased to inform you that he has now joined India Programs (on September 24th.)
Indic Languages is an important priority for us - and Shiju intends to start work on this urgently. He'll be in touch shortly on this matter.
Welcome aboard, Shiju!

I am really pleased to inform you that the Oriya Wiktionary is the first
project ever to be officially re-enabled for editing. The Oriya community is
working really hard to make their projects a success. They are noticing that
the usability is improving as a consequence of the obligatory localisation
that they have to do. Once they are done, the language committee will assess
if a Wikiquote can be created as well.
The exception that was made to open up the Oriya Wiktionary was given
because there is a Wikimeet in the near future and we do want to give their
community more of a reason to be happy with their hard work.
Thank you for the many responses - namely Mr Gangadhar Bhadani, Abhilash
Unni, Nazmun Noor. :)
I was able to contact him on phone and send him forwards of the necessary
Hopefully we shall all meet him in November :).
