I am a Wikimedian and have been for a very long time. Check my record and you will find that I have always been involved in both language support and projects like Wiktionary, OmegaWiki, Wikidata, Reasonator.
Today new functionality has gone life on Wikidata that was expected for over half a year. Because of this the Marwari language is now supported in Wikidata. I blogged about this . Other languages will follow soon. This policy was discussed with people from India in the past and they saw it as an appropriate strategy to start building information resources in a language prior to a Wikipedia or another WMF project.
India is big and it is foolish to forget context and not seek support and second opinions when people in India are likely to benefit directly. On the other hand, you can bring a horse to water, you cannot make it drink. When I blogged about an enhancement to the search functionality on the Telugu Wikipedia , it should be obvious that added value will only be found when people add labels in Telugu to Wikidata. It is gratifying that labels have been added. This is not an experiment as traffic details from the Tamil and Persian Wikipedia indicate it as a successful strategy.
I am not involved in Indian politics. Obviously. I am however improving information about the current members of the Lok Sabha. I added that Mr Modi is the incumbent prime minister of Gujarati state in Wikidata. I have blogged about one member of the Lok Sabha and I am likely to do so again. My objective is to get labels in all the languages of India for all of them and I will not be the one doing that. My hope is that information is readily available on Indian politics and its politicians.
