Just checked with my sources in the government - and what I hear is that th=
e allocated funds *isn&#39;t* for Sanskrit Wikipedia, but a project &quot;o=
n the lines&quot; of Sanskrit Wikipedia, but perhaps with editing control. =

Yea. I remember that announcement 2 years back and then it got converted in=
to an internal project.=A0<div><br></div><div>But, a good opportunity for a=

 the chapter in place and most of us quite well networked, we should get in=
