I have some concerns regarding this whole process which, I think, need to
be addressed as soon as possible.
As far as I have understood, Samir is coming to India to get feedback
the Indian affiliates and communities about the
re-branding proposal and
report it back to WMF. Re-branding is a very debatable proposal which
definitely affect, in a controversial and unclear
way, the future of
all emerging communities, affiliates and sister
So, my questions are,
1) Why was information about Samir's trip to India, not declared to the
communities well ahead of time so that the communities and affiliates
express their voices and concerns directly with
2) Who decided that visiting only Punjabi, Hindi and Bangalore
is sufficient enough to provide the feedback of
all Indian communities?
were not other communities and affiliates
included in the process? What
criteria these three communities met so that they can represent the
from all over the country and why not other
communities consulted about
Why is Samir staying in Patiala, Delhi and Bangalore for extra days for
local sightseeing and not utilizing the days to communicate with other
communities and who planned for this kind of schedule?
How will it be ensured to provide ample opportunity for community
to express their opinions? Online session is not
a good option as many
don't have the necessary infrastructure to do so.
There is a feeling in the community that re-branding is already a made
decision by the WMF and this kind of non-transparency further endorses
Hoping to get positive responses.
