from what I understand, an earlier Wikimeetup happened at Kolkata more than a year ago in Joka. I was informed of this by a participant at that earlier event who had expressed inability in attending the current meetup on the relevant page. I met her at a conference in Bangalore recently and got to know this. We may want to exercise caution in branding events as the first meet-up etc., "meet-up" should suffice.

There were around 18+ attendees for the first Wikimeetup @Kolkata . I would like to express my sincere thanks to Jayanata Nath, Indranil Das Gupta & Shiju Alex for all the efforts in putting things together for a successful meetup, at one of the ancient cities of India. Special thanks to Bishakha Datta &
Achal Prabhala for all the encouragement & support in our efforts.
One of us will be sending a detailed report on the meetup soon.
