Apologies for cross-posting. This post is of interest to community members based out of Mumbai. I post on the India list because there may be members who are not on the Mumbai list. I apologize for this as well.
In September, the Mumbai community passed 5 year mark since holding the first meetup in a cafe in Bandra, Mumbai. However, the community has not had a meetup since January 2014, per - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/Mumbai -. I was wondering if Wikipedia 15 in 2016 maybe a good opportunity to revive the meetups in Mumbai.
