We will be supporting this event(s). Please help Sucheta, Rangan and
Jayanta mobilize more Kolkata based Wikipedians (and potential Wikipedians)
to attend this.
@Sucheta, Yuvi, Harsh, Rangan and Jayanta:
1) We will be reimbursing Harsh's travel to and fro to Kolkata for this
event as part of CIS-A2K support. Please get in touch with our Accounts
Officer Ms. Usha who is copied here.
2) Please kindly acknowledge CIS for supporting this event. You can find
our logo at www.cis-india.org
3) It would be nice if you could send us couple of blogs about the event
which can be put up on CIS website. Please touch base with Prasad, who is
copied on this. We would encourage Harsh and Yuvi to also write separate
blogs based on their experience or learnings from the event and how you all
see sustaining the momentum you have created through the Media Wiki
workshop. Please feel free to use these write-ups in any other location on
or off the web. Visit www.cis-india.org
to see a sample of our blogs.
4) It will be useful if you actively involve as many Bengali wikipedians
(even remotely if possible) as possible in this, so that you will help
build an interface with the interested tech guys and content contributors.
Bengali Wikipedia needs a major boost. Also Bengal related content on
en.wikipedia needs lot more additions. Do also focus on on-wiki activities
5) Do not hesitate to touch base with me or anyone else on CIS-A2K team if
you need any clarifications or support.
Make it a big success and lots of fun :-)
All the best.

This is our basic plan for the Wikipedia event in our college:
I have been talking to Jayanta da and Rangan da (on Cc), my fellow
Wikipedians from Kolkata chapter, and they are willing to conduct the
edit-a-thon part. We shall be able to confirm their presence soon enough, I
hope. And I shall put up the schedule accordingly.
Also, Harsh- Could you tell us about your travel expenses, as that would
I am looking forward to get all of your suggestions,- feel free to edit
the page, if you wish to!
