Sure. That would be great. We would love to have a virtual edit-a-thon.
To be honest, I'd also like to use the interest in local interest to build
up wider interest here in contributing to the Wikipedia as a whole.
The next local gaps waiting to be filled (as far as we here are concerned)
* Educational institutions in Goa
* Konkan Railway stations in Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka

Hello Mr Frederick,
If you wish then Wikimedia India could create a small virtual edit a ton
to fill these gaps.

In addition, the others might also need their profiles to be improved.
If anyone is willing to undertake to help complete any, some or all of
profiles, I'd be happy to mentor and guide. It's simple to do (but the
Wikipedia, being an encyclopedia, wants all information to be referenced
carefully before it is included).
There are also other profiles of Goa writers (English, Romi, Marathi)
waiting to be completed. At another level, Prof Delfim Correia was
for images of Goan authors who wrote in Portuguese. Do you have any? Are
willing to share?
