information and its versions in different languages (including
Marathi) are also getting popular. Journalism students and journalists
should not remain only consumers of this huge and resourceful
information, but they should also contribute to it as writers and
editors. This symposium aims to acquaint the participants with various
aspects of Marathi Wikipedia and Marathi Wikisrot.
You are cordially invited for this program and celebrate Marathi
Bhasha Diwas and Marathi Wikisrot launch.
