Good to see some movements at meta, it worked to an extent so far.

This is all you got to cover up; newsletters, and list of events at meta.
Except these, is there any page which is updated?

Newsletters, we knew where to find, i was not asking for it, but i was
asking why there is no updates at meta?
In newsletters, you keep repeating few blog posts in the consecutive
month, i noticed couple of times. I don't understand the need of it.

Do you have answers to each concerns and questions i have raised?
I'm not just talking about updates, which are one or two month due,
also asking about "Community Mid-year reports", "Evaluation results",
"Quarterly community survey" which have not been started since the
inception of A2K.

I see, recently one team member has been added. What about another
team member? Isn't s/he in the team, and an employee? Please add the
profiles and their work details.

You have raised a set of concerns on the same mailing lists 2 days ago. I had informed you on these same mailing lists that I will get back to the list within the next 20 days with updates/answers for your concerns. I said so, and I repeat again, because most of these tasks are works-in-progress and some are delayed. After I share the updates, should you have more or unanswered queries/questions/feedback, it could certainly be brought to the attention of the list-members. Is this agreeable?
When i first raised those concerns via email, you didn't listen,
delayed. Then I forced you to respond, then you said you'd consider,
but you didn't. Then I raised some more concerns at meta, few you
didn't accept, few to accept i had to show you facts and figures.
All the points I've raised in this duration, there still few to many
are pending in which to few you had said you'd get back or consider!
Well I don't know how long it'd take you to do that?

Then just again I have raised few more questions. Lets see how you and
your team will work on that and able to respond to them.

Is this how you have planned for the community to make you work? Then
I think the community members should be getting twice the amount of
yours!! :D

I don't know your definition of "Lie". But when people don't keep
their words, i call it lie, and them liar.

Let these figments of imagination be, as they are. I would prefer to stay away from such needless rhetoric, as I and my team have wasted considerable human hours already in doing so. Let's stick to a critical analysis of CIS-A2K's work, which is productive. Your earlier mail (sent 2 days ago) was to the point and concise.

As an initial response, I shared the links through which one can see the entire work, or lack of it, of CIS-A2K since the commencement of the Grant in September 2012.

For the benefit of the list-members and you I have tried to summarize CIS-A2K's activities below for the period September 2012 - June 2013.

Some key activities during the period of Sep 2012 to June 2013 are:
  • Number of newsletters published: 10
  • Number of events conducted: 49
  • Number of Wikipedia Education Programs conducted: 5
  • Number of people reached: about 1314
  • Number of women participants: approximately 406 (30.9%)
  • Number of community meet-ups & IRCs: 12
  • Number of sites across India where Wikimedia events were conducted: 18
  • Number of valid usernames: 582
  • Number of blogs posted: 58
  • Number of Print and Electronic Media mentions: 28
  • Number of Hackathons supported: 2
  • Number of community celebration events: 7
  • Number of Institutional partnerships: 13
Soon we will publish a detailed report for this period with more details on the activities, achievements, impact, challenges and learning of CIS-A2K. And of course we would be seeking detailed feedback from the community and continue to improve upon our successes and failures in growing the Wikimedia movement in India.

PS. Dear Friends, there might be slight delay in my e-mail responses as I will be on a short break during November 1 to November 4.
