Effective 01 February 2016, I have changed the nature of my engagement with
Wikimedia India (WMIN) from staff to volunteer.
I joined WMIN when the overall scene in the Indian Wikimedia movement was
tumultuous. It wasn’t easy getting things back on track. In the last 16
months, I hope I have succeeded in restoring the trust of all stakeholders
including WMF, CIS-A2K, and the community. It was an honour to represent
the movement in India, and I thank all who have helped me shoulder this
responsibility. I know that I have played my part in empowering at least
one Wikimedian to contribute more actively and nurturing at least one
Wikimedia community. And that gives me immense satisfaction as I sign off
as WMIN’s Program Director.
At the moment, WMIN cannot hire or retain any staff until it gets FCRA
permanent registration and succeeds in securing next grant. I hope to
continue serving WMIN as a volunteer to the best of my abilities while it
undergoes this transition. I will also be contributing to various
Wikimedia projects and events as usual in my capacity as a volunteer.
I wish WMIN all the best and look forward to it playing a bigger role in
the movement as it matures.
