Coimbatore just had one. Yuvipanda was there for 1 day mediawiki workshop. Read the below, also applies to you and anyone who feels the same.

Well, I have to agree,it was pointed out and something may happen soon. But then there was a track at FOSS.IN 2010 (a year back). But wait, did you wait Wikimania at come to your hometown for you to start Wikipedia editing? No no? So go and get started[1], stay at IRC #mediawiki, *work on something* be it small or big, know how mediawiki (or other technology infra beyond it) works, ask for help and people are more than willing to help and keep doing it. If you feel you could help on organizing one, get enough "seeds" (Mediawiki seasoned folks) and be bold and do it, even if its on a smaller scale.

/me holds the temptation to announce something related.
