You will be missed, Hisham, and it's really good to know that you are
around for the next few months.

Dear Bangalore Community
I'm writing to inform you that I plan to leave my current role
supporting Wikimedia in India. I am going to be exploring
opportunities and evaluating options that are closer to my career
aspirations and my personal circumstances. I will be working through
to ensure that there is a smooth transition - and this is likely to
take 2-3 months. I am writing now because I felt it appropriate and
opportune to inform you as early as possible.
I want to start off by thanking the Wikimedia community and movement
for giving me this extraordinary opportunity. Working on something
like India Program has been something that has been professionally
enriching and personally fulfilling. Over the past 1 1/2 years, I have
been supported by so many of you - and I want to thank you for
everything you have done! The passion and intellectual firepower of
our community has been my constant source of drive and guidance.
There are so many examples of powerful stories from all over the
country: the incredible efforts put in by the IEP Campus Ambassadors
in Pune; the army of volunteers that drove the outreach push across
the country in the first few months of this year; the beautiful
stories of fantastic community initiatives from far and wide across
the country and sub-continent, and indeed the world; the remarkable
stories from so many communities - large, small and tiny ones!
I want to thank the team that I have had the pleasure and privilege of
working with - Nitika, Noopur, Shiju & Subha. You guys have been
wonderful. The work that we are doing is experimental and we have
been innovating every day, and I know the circumstances have not
always been easy. Take strength and inspiration from the large number
of community members who have been touched by you and appreciate your
efforts and value your work.
I will send an actual "over and out" message later. In the meantime,
I will continue to work on everything that needs working on.
