Hi Wikipedians,
                       The first community
the Wikimedia India community was released in September 2010. Since
that time, various community members have been involved with creating a
regular version of the newsletter; today,* we are pleased to announce the
commencement of WikiPatrika*, a monthly newsletter of Wikimedia community,
chapter and foundation updates from India.

'Patrika' is the closest pan-Indian word that has roughly similar meaning
across the country that also conveys the right spirit; it has a multitude of
meanings, but is broadly understood to mean 'journal' or 'magazine'.

WikiPatrika is an independent publication which is not affiliated with the
Wikimedia Foundation or the Wikimedia India chapter. We sincerely thank the
Wikimedia India chapter for allowing us to host this newsletter on
wikimedia.in .
