Anyone seen or know of this?

Found it by accident from this article: http://discover.isif.asia/2014/02/will-india-succeed-where-wikipedia-has-failed/

Wondering what it means for these language wikipedias - is there an opportunity for collaboration?

I had known from its early days when it was called India development gateway and also interacted with them for potential collaboration.  Indian language Wikipedias are certainly better off in terms of page views as can be seen from my analysis given below done in 2012.

In March  2010, unique visitor count was  2630. It increased to 4460 by Mar 2011. For all 8 languages put together average daily page views are   13350. For Telugu wikipedia alone, daily page views are 80000 as on July 2012. Please note the time periods are based on the data available and are not exactly comparable, but they indicate rough status.
