We have had the Wikipedia Day celebrations today evening at the Computer
Society of India in Kolkata. It was a modest gathering of eleven people. I
guess some of us could not attend solely because it was a weekday. But then
we had a mixed crowd of old and new faces that lent the event a touch of
We celebrated by cutting the cake and shared the developments in the
community. Biswarup da had recently uploaded his 10,000th picture in the
Commons, and we had a big round of applause for him. We had one new face
Ankita, who shared her contributions in the Wikibooks. Shubhashish joined
the celebrations from Delhi, first on phone and finally on Google hangout.
We also had a bit of planning on our follow up activities. We would be
happy to share them with you some time very soon.
Thanks to all who made this event successful in spite of all odds.
Thanks and regards,
