I agree with you.
60 days is too less. It would take atleast 6-7 months of editing and working to bring out such articles.

Just a word of caution here.
Lift and ship approach will be a disaster. So any article that goes into Kiwix, must be reviewed / tagged for legal compliance (Maps, others!), be of decent quality and avoid controversial topics(Caste topics Hell no). We must also check for copyvio images etc. It requires fair amount of reviewing on the content side. When it comes to Indic, spell check, language quality also matters. Just sharing some points we considered to bring a quality offline version of Tamil. We were taken by scale of content copyediting work that such an offline project requires. I am sure WikiProject:India on enwp has no more volunteers than any Indic wikipedia(atleast comparable to Tamil) and I seriously don't think we can do justice for something like this in 60 days.
