Jayanta, I'm also happy to help, if bandwidth is a problem. If you send me
a list of URLs of books at the DLI that you'd like me to download and
upload to the Internet Archive for you, I'm happy to do it.

Thank you for sharing this add-on and website. This site may very useful
Yes, I will upload some of these books and tell them.
I am working on my native wikisource bengali. Can
you help us to develop
OCR for Bengali?
Unfortunately, Bengali may not even exist in commercial software, although
I know a French company which is making OCR for Indian languages, it will
take some time.
Bengali is not available in Abby FineReader 11 Professional Editon, which
is the leading world software for OCR. However several dozens of languages
are available: all European languages, Latin, Greek, Russian, Chinese,
Japanese, Korean, Arabic, several African languages, etc., but no Indian
language is available in the list. It is what Internet Archive uses.
Developing OCR is a very long and complex work. And I don't speak Bengali,
so I can't help much.
However I can help creating PDF and/or DJVU files, and uploading them.
