Just keep it as *Wikimedia India discussion list*.
The list discusses all wikimedia India related topics irrespective of the
fact that whether the topic is related to English wiki projects (India
specific topics) or Indian language wiki projects or some other topics
related to wikimedia India.
:) There is no room for English vs Indian languages fight here. English is
used as the common medium of language to communicate between different
language communities. That itself shows the importance of English.
