As part of the FOSS event called Carte Blanche (http://cb.csmit.org/) to be held 
at the Madras Institute of Technology, a Wikipedia workshop is being conducted 
on February 6 between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm. Following is the proposal, the exact 
timings will be finalised soon.

* English Wikipedia - general introduction for participation (Sundar)
* தமிழ் விக்கிப்பீடியா பயிலரங்கு (Tamil Wikipedia Workshop by users Manian, 
Sengai Podhuvan, Paridhimathi, Surya Prakash, and Mahir)
* Hacking with Wikipedia (Srikanth's  previous presentation will be used + 
Sundar's introduction to  pywikipediabot and a few bot examples + Mahir's talk 
about templates and  other things)

The organisers have kindly agreed to give us a stall as well. If any of you can 
participate or, better still, conduct sessions, you're most welcome.
On a sidenote, I've been asked to inaugurate the event on Feb 5 at 9:00 am. All 
are welcome.

 "That language is an instrument of human reason, and not merely a medium for 
the expression of thought, is a truth generally admitted."
