Hi Wikipedians and Friends,

I'll be there all day today at SICSR Pune (http://gnunify.in/) and will also
transfer to someone at the college; anybody interested in getting a
DVD-ready copy of *Wikipedia for Schools* Offline Edition, you can copy it
from us here. Bring a USB or computing device with min 2.7GB free space.

I'm very grateful for the organizers at GNUnify for giving a generous slot
tomorrow (12th Feb, 11:45am) to talk and discuss about Wikipedia for Schools
project. Please attend! You can read up more on it on

I'm also bringing the dumps of :
Wikipedia English Dec 2010 selection
(wikipedia_en_wp1_0.8_45000+_12_2010_alpha1.zim, 3.74GB),
Hindi Wikipedia (wikipedia_hi_all_01_2011_beta1.zim, 483MB),
Marathi Wikipedia (wikipedia_mr_all_01_2011_beta1.zim, 212MB),
Gujrati Wikipedia (wikipedia_gu_all_01_2011_beta1.zim , 112MB)

All these can of course be downloaded online from
(Due thanks to Emmanuel and Kiwix team for speedy creation of the Indian
language dumps!)

So see you there, and let's bridge the internet divide, using the Largest
Ebooks ever Created ! (sorry, couldn't resist using that!)
