creating the Sanskrit Wikisource[सम्पादयतु]

I have submitted the proposal for creating the Sanskrit Wikisource. It is available at: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages/Wikisource_Sanskrit

For time being, I have added only you two as the users interested in Sanskrit wikisource. If you know any one else interested in Sanskrit wiki source, please send me their details. Also make sure you cast your vote in the Arguments in favour section.

Please let me know in case there are any issues

2010 Fundraising Is Almost Here[सम्पादयतु]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

Hello Wikipedians, I am Theo and I am working for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2010 Fundraiser. My job is to be the liaison between your community and the Foundation. This year's fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort; we recognize that banner messages which may perform well in the United States don't necessarily translate well, or appeal to international audiences.

I'm contacting you as I am currently looking for translators who are willing to contribute to this project by helping translate and localize messages into different languages and suggesting messages that would appeal to your readers on the Fundraising Meta Page. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us, and add your feedback to the proposed messages as well! I look forward to working with you during this year's fundraiser. If someone could translate this message I would really appreciate it so that everyone is able to understand our goals and contribute to this year's campaign.

Samskrutha Bharathi[सम्पादयतु]

Hey Vibhi, How did you contact them ? What did you ask them and what was the reply? I know a lot to ask for, please tell us for the good of community. - रामप्रियः १०:५५, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

I contacted them by their website. They replied that How can they help us. I said them that it would be great if they can contribute to this wiki. Vaibhav Jain ११:००, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

In the recent budget, Karnataka Govt had allocated Rs 1Cr grant to Samskrutha Bharathi for developing this Wikipedia. I don't see any activity happening here on that front. How do they propose to help the wikipedia ? - रामप्रियः ११:०३, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

Really! What do Karnataka government has to do with this wiki? And why Sanskrita Bharati is not doing anything? Vaibhav Jain ११:०७, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

Karnataka Govt has given grants for revival of the language. The grant is given to Samskrutha Bharathi. No idea on what is happening. - रामप्रियः ११:१३, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

MikeLynch is involved in getting in touch with Samskrita Bharati. He didn't told about this. Vaibhav Jain ११:१४, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

Let's hear from MikeLynch here. It will be a great boost to this Wikipedia if Samskrutha Bharathi volunteers start contributing here. I had seen/read some volunteers had been part of a Wiki meetup in Bangalore. Maybe some of them are already editors here. - रामप्रियः ११:२७, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
I once saw a Samskrita Bharati Representative but he didn't contributed for years. Samskrita Bharati people are genius in Sanskrit. Vaibhav Jain ११:३०, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
I take great pleasure in saying that people from Samskritha Bharathi, Bangalore, are indeed contributing to Sanskrit Wikipedia. Shijualex had conducted a workshop in the Samskrita Bharati premises in Girinagar, a workshop over which I presided as well. SumanaKoundinya has been instrumental in setting this collaboration up, and I, as a coordinator for this project, am confident about its success. It will indeed be a great boost. Yes Michael?Talk १२:०७, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Sure it will help our wiki. Vaibhav Jain १२:०८, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
And while it is true that Rs. 1 crore has been allocated by the Government of Karnataka for this purpose, Sumana informs me that there are still some processes involved, such as cabinet approval perhaps. While I remain optimistic about that funding being approved, I wouldn't bank too much upon it. Yes Michael?Talk १२:११, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
That's right. Money is not going to develop the content here, isn't it!!! Nice to know that people from Samskrutha Bharathi are already involved here. I am curious to know what really happened in the workshop. Do you have details about it ? - रामप्रियः १२:२६, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
There are free Sanskrit classes. I have visited once with my father in the delhi branch. Vaibhav Jain १२:३०, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Sadly, it was more of an informal workshop, and I don't think anyone prepared the minutes of it. But I can tell you what happened there: Around 20 people, well versed in Sanskrit attended the meet. Shijualex explained the basics of Wikipedia to them. Many of them were very enthusiastic about it. We had a fruitful open discussion session, wherein we discussed topics like automated translation, and copyrights. Yes Michael?Talk १२:३७, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Samskrita Bharati is an international organization and this can help us in encouraging other users which are not from India. Vaibhav Jain १२:३९, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
SumanaKoundinya also informs me that there was one more short session held in St. Joseph's college, and another one is being planned in Sringeri. I plan to hold a talk/workshop in Mangalore (still in the pipeline), and probably some more in Bangalore itself. Yes Michael?Talk १२:४०, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
I can also plan a workshop, most probably in the Samskrita Bharati office here in Delhi. Vaibhav Jain १२:४१, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Vaibhav, a good place to start would be your school. Ask your principal/coordinator, conduct a session, and encourage your classmates and teachers to contribute! It will give you some hands on experience as well. Yes Michael?Talk १२:४५, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
The problem is that our school does not have only Sanskrit as th third language, we even have german and french and most students have taken german. Still I will try. Vaibhav Jain १२:४८, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
No worries. Do try your best. Even if it is a crowd of 15-20, it is worth conducting a workshop. I will provide any necessary slides/material. Yes Michael?Talk १२:५४, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
I can help in a workshop if it is in the Samskrita Bharati branch here. I can provide the contact numbers and can present th presentation. Vaibhav Jain १२:५९, १४ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

Solution for local requests[सम्पादयतु]

I would like to make a proposal for solution of local request rights here. There is only one inactive crat on this wiki, as such according to policy, you may request permanent crat rights to handle local requests on sa.wiki. As per policy, there needs to be two active crats, you can nominate two people from the active community here, and then vote on them till a consensus is reached. After 2 weeks, you may request permanent crat rights from Stewards to handle local requests. I would recommend that the two nominees to have been active here for a while and know about wiki policy/rights. Theo10011 १५:३८, १८ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

I agree. But we don't need a crat as the community is still small but this advice would be taken seriously. Thanks. Vaibhav Jain १५:४१, १८ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Theo, I think at least 15 votes are required to close a crat request as successful, or at least this RfC says so. Or am I inaccurate? Yes Michael?Talk १६:४५, १८ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Yup, The 15 count isn't exact but its around there. You can def. get that much support if you forward the request to the India Mailing list. Its an issue thats bound to come up again and again, its better to be addressed now. And you DO need a crat, so that local community can decide on its own, stewards should not be looked on to mediate any local affairs. Theo10011 १८:००, १८ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
That's true, but then, there are very little people here who have had a lot of experience on wikimedia projects. Yes Michael?Talk १८:३१, १८ मेय् २०११ (UTC)

I am really unsure how this is connected to having a "very active community". Anyway, I don't mind putting up a caption of it. Rao7Talk १४:५६, २६ मेय् २०११ (UTC)
Well we need a such a active community that we can make it sure that it is updated everyday. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ १५:०३, २६ मेय् २०११ (UTC)


I request each user to start editing at the test wiki of Sanskrit Wikiquote. There are currently 11 pages and 30 including redirects and templates. This project has been verified as eligible by the language committee. And also please support this project and add your name in the editing community here if you have didn't. Thanks. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ (चर्चा) १२:०४, २६ जून् २०११ (UTC)

Enable Some User Groups[सम्पादयतु]

I give a proposal to add some new user groups to sa wiki like

  1. roll backers
  2. reviewers
  3. abuse filterers
  4. Eliminator(who can delete and undelete any page)

All the rights are already with admins but they should be also to active non-admins. That would help Sanskrit Wikipedia to grow faster. (Give your vote if you agree that this feature should be installed to meet the requirements of sanskrit wikipedia then put YesY otherwise N for opposing )

  1. YesY ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk १३:१८, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
  2. N, As there are very less active user on sa wiki, among 53 active user, 45 are global bots.So only 8 users remains.In such condition its is not beneficial.I think we should develop the community first, as our active users increases we can enable this groups.Mediawiki developers also do such changes where there is an Significant active community--Mayur (चर्चा) १३:५०, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
  3. N.
  • Rollback feature is already there in the Twinkle package
  • By reviewer, if you mean enabling something like the Recent changes patrol, it is completely useless for Sa wiki. Please expand on this point.
  • We hardly get any vandalism. Try and define some abusefilters, and then we can decide whether it will really be useful.
  • Again, it boils down to the vandalism. The last vandal I reverted was "never". Blatant vandalism is a rarity here, so Eliminator would not serve any real purpose.

Basically, all these pertain to blatant vandalism, something which we get once in a blue moon. Rao7Talk १३:५८, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

All this rights are for those purposes for which Adminship can't be granted. I also agree that rollback and reviewer will not help us. But if we build a good abuse filter like hi wiki, it would be really useful. As of eliminator rights, there are really some nonsense pages here, some of them are fit for Wikisource, and some for nothing. This will really help us. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk १४:१६, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
How many Pages are created in sa wiki daily, I really seek such vandalized pages to delete them but very less vandalism occur in sa wiki, Use of abuse filter is very risky for sa wiki before developing Community in sa wiki, All such stuff was introduced in hi wiki due to Excess vandalism.In case of sa wiki hardly we face any vandalism as Mike said.Let our community develop.We have already 8 active user, 4 are admins among them so there is no need of such huge implementation at this intial developing stage of sa wiki.--Mayur (चर्चा) १४:३१, ४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

Please correct सुभाषितम्[सम्पादयतु]

I tried to restore सुभाषितम् to a stable state, which is reverted by श्री वैभव जैन. I don't mind it. But this list of Subhashits has many inconsistencies because of which I had to change to previous Subhashits. It is showing that it's source/origin is Rigveda, which is not so. It can also be verified on en:Suprabhatam that "The Veṅkaṭeśasuprabhātam was composed around 1430 A.D. by Prativādibhayaṅkara Śrī Anantācārya (also known as Annangaracharyar, and P B Annan), the Rāmānujācārya of Kanchipuram." So at least in Shlokas related to सुप्रभातम् this correction should've been there. This is my point; rest is upto ur wish. Thanks and Regards.-Hemant wikikosh (चर्चा) ११:१७, २४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

I reverted it because this type of changes should be first discussed with the community and this quote was aligned to the left making the formatting not so good. If the community wants, we can choose 31 good quotes for this template. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email ११:४४, २४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
Dear Vaibhav, you didn't understand my point. I am not asking why u reverted it. My point is that there is the said mistake among others, and it should be corrected if u want the same version of Subhashits there. Thanks. -Hemant wikikosh (चर्चा) १६:४३, २४ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)
I think that is a important issue, best way is to create a page for it, and than we can choose a quote for each day. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email १०:३७, २५ जूलय् २०११ (UTC)

User:Avenue X at Cicero[सम्पादयतु]

I have observed that User:Avenue X at Cicero is continuously vandalizing important pages of sa.wikipedia. First he deleted some some important recent record from सम्भाषणम्:प्रबन्धक page, then when I reverted it, he/she did a similar act at a smaller level on the same page. Now the turn is of विचारमण्डपम् page where he has deliberately removed <nowiki> tag to leave my message misleading. This is very intolerable. If this is due to not understanding संस्कृत, even then this is unacceptable, because in that case much care is required to do such changes (ironically this user has applied for adminship). The user should be warned not to undertake such acts without discussing. -Hemant wikikosh (चर्चा) १८:२३, २५ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)

My apologies to Hemant regarding the removal of a "nowiki", as I believed he wanted to embed it and failed. Sorry Hemant, but you still have some of my questions to answer. First he deleted some some important recent record from सम्भाषणम्:प्रबन्धक page: I think that process is called archiving. Well, one more thing I would like to say: Its funny that you post something in English when you want to speak against me, but in Sanskrit when users specifically request you post in English. Also, I believe a simple message at my talk page might have sufficed. Its amusing to have a person who claims to have been "offered" adminship and nominating himself [meaning o'course that he understands policies] using the विचारमण्डपम् like the ANI. Avenue X at Cicero (चर्चा) १८:३७, २५ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)
@Avenue Kindly talk more respectfully. For me you are not an active member of sa wiki community, so i take your comment as one by an outsider.
@Hemant Through i strongly condemn this comment of Avenue, but you need not to worry, everyone knows that some people think themselves as the master. Anyone can contribute with translators, but only some like you contribute with professional knowledge, and also i think you know what is archiving, so there is no need to tell you that. Cheers! :) ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email ०९:३४, २६ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)
As I said, its funny having a user say that I believe I'm the master, when he himself says that he more knowledgeable than me (implied, he is the master) in respect to this community. Avenue X at Cicero (चर्चा) ११:४७, २६ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)
Even funnier is the fact that a person who opposed Hemant in his bid for adminship, citing the count [not quality] of his translations, appreciating his work. If you did have to defend [rather, appreciate] him, you could have changed your vote! The admin bid ended only days ago! Avenue X at Cicero (चर्चा) ११:५१, २६ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)
Also, @Vibhi, format your comments properly for your own sake. Avenue X at Cicero (चर्चा) ११:५४, २६ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)

@Avenue Is opposing someone for Adminship means to say his edits a bad?♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email १२:१४, २६ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)

I'm afraid you're mistaken. My argument is based on the rationale on which you opposed him. Not on the fact that you opposed him. Avenue X at Cicero (चर्चा) १२:४३, २६ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)
My rationale was that he nee more experience on working with main space, i have always agreed he i a brilliant scholar of Sanskrit. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email १४:३३, २६ सप्तम्बर् २०११ (UTC)

Statistical report of Indian language wiki projects - 2011 October[सम्पादयतु]

Dear All,

I am sharing the statistical report of Indian language wiki projects for the month of 2011 October. It is available here. https://blog.wikimedia.org/2011/12/12/indian-language-wikipedia-statistics-october-2011/

One interesting facts from this report is:

  • Nearly 4.3 crore readers are there for all Indic language wikipedias! This number is huge and increased by nearly 1/3 in just 1 month! So Indic wikis has huge existing reader base.

You can find more interesting facts about Sanskrit wikipedia and community from the report at https://blog.wikimedia.org/2011/12/12/indian-language-wikipedia-statistics-october-2011/

Summary and perspectives from Discussions with Indic language wikimedians - 2011[सम्पादयतु]

Dear All,

I have sent a detailed note to the various local language and India community mailing lists summarizing my discussions with various Indic editors. In this note, I have also shared my perspectives on a series of issues related to community building (keeping existing editors, welcoming back old editors, attracting newbies, improving outreach, encouraging communication, collaborating on articles, and celebrating success), project quality (discouraging the use of bots for content creation and being more selective in adoption of English wikipedia policies) as well as on readership. It is a long post but I request you to go through this page in meta wiki. Please share your comments and feedback as a reply below this, or on the meta talk page of my post, or directly to me. I am really keen on hearing from as many of you as I can - and to start working together. --Shijualex (चर्चा) १३:३०, १६ डिसेम्बर् २०११ (UTC)

Preserving the heritage of Samskritam[सम्पादयतु]

Dear Sanskrit wikipedians,

Over the past few weeks I have discussed the current state and the future of Indic wiki projects with many Indic language wikipedians - and I spoke with few sanskrit wikipedians also. And after discussuion with more than 10 Indic wiki communities, I have provided the summary of discussions and my ideas about taking Indic wiki projects forward. During the discussion many of you have asked for clear ideas to improve the strength of the community and quality of projects. I have been thinking about what would be most appropriate for Sanskrit community and I want to share some specific suggestions for Sanskrit wikipedia. I am recommending these based on ideas from Sanskrit editors as well as learnings from other Indic communities which have relevance for Sanskrit.

As of now we have around 20 active wikipedians and more than 6,000 articles for Sanskrit wikipedia. Also we have strong wiki activism in Sanskrit wikisource. I think the single most powerful way of achieving the huge potential for Sanskrit wiki projects is to further build its community. Increase communication and collaboration between editors is one way of doing this since that will retain existing editors and attract more users to for Sanskrit wiki. Sanskrit community may consider working on more frequent interaction (online and face-to-face), increasing the spirit of common purpose and bonding amongst editors and last, but not least, attracting newbies.

Below are some points that I request Sanskrit wiki community to consider.

Community Building

Wiki meetups

Physical meetings between wikipedians is a really strong way to help the growth of Indic wikipedias. As you know meetups connect us with like-minded people, build friendships, help share ideas and plan initiatives. For small communities, there is always the feeling that we are all alone - and meetups help to correct this perception and this is a source of inspiration. We should have meetups of Sanskrit wikipedians anywhere and everywhere in the world where there 2-3 of you in the same town. In the NCR area (Delhi/Gurgaon/Noida/Faridabad), please feel free to use the office in Hauz Khas for meetups. For other areas please plan and meetup. Physical meetings between wikipedians are very much required to grow a healthy wiki community in any indic langauge wikipedia. I will help in every possible way to support all the initiatives regarding this.


As most of you know WikiProjects are informal groups of wiki editors who work work together as a team to improve Wikipedia. These groups often focus on a specific topic area (for example, articles related to Sanskrit language or India specific topics) or a specific kind of task (for example, expanding stub articles). It allows editors to work with other editors - all of whom share a passion for the subject or task. It has worked really well in many languages across India. (For example, Malayalam wikipedia has a project on "Theyyam" an art form of Kerala, “Astronomy" project, "Stub elimination" project, Categorization project, and so on. Group of 3 or 4 Malayalam wiki community members interested in these projects are actively collabrating on these articles to enhance it). The idea I want to emphasis is, along with working on articles on our interest it will be nice if we could start collabrating with other community members. That will enhance our wiki editing experince and is good for the growth of community. That will help more existing users to continue in wiki for a long time.

Some suggestions for wiki projects are:

  • Start a wiki project to create/expand all articles related to Sanskrit language
  • Start a wiki project to create/expand articles about districts/villages of states of India.
  • Start a wiki project to expand the stubs
  • Start a wiki project to identify and remove potential copyright violated images and move the rest of the free images to commons
  • Start a project on an area which 2-3 editors feel passionate about - whatever the subject might be.

In fact if we could get to know the interest of users we could easily design various small wiki projects as is happening in English wikipedia. The point I want to emphasis is that collaboration between editors will ensure a healthy community so that we can do more programs. The best way of collaboration is doing what we all love best - editing. So let us collaborate on what we love doing most.


To encourage users to start editing in wiki some of us need to take initiative for some outreach activities. Outreach can be of 3 types - offline, online, and using media.

Online Outreach: Social Networking

Use social networking sites to reach out to people (Facebook, Twitter, and many others.) You can publicise your workshops through these sites or you can invite people to join the community or you can announce major achievements (like the news of Sanskrit wikipedia crossing the 25,000 article count, Sanskrit community digitized an important Sanskrit text and added to Sanskrit wikisource, and so on). Already many Indic wiki communities are doing this. We shall think about start using Social Networking sites for Sanskrit wiki projects also.

Offline Outreach: Wiki workshops

Wiki workshop is the best way to attract more users to wikipedia. As we know the current 20 active editors in Sanskrit wiki is a very very small tiny group considering the fact that we have lot of things to do. I know Samskritha Bharathi is already doing many Sanskrit wiki workshops. We should start doing more workshops to attract more users to wiki editing. Again in Delhi, we have the required space and infrastructure so please feel free to use it whenever Sanskrit wikipedians require it. For other locations if any one is interested to conduct wiki workshops please let us all know and we will work out some way of supporting for this. More important is community members need to come forward.

Offline Outreach: Sanskrit Instituions

Many institutions - like Samskrithi Bharati - have passionate people and invest time and money to preserve and promote Sanskrit. They do various things such as digitisation, language training, advocacy, outreach, etc . It will be very useful to invite and explore partnerships. Samskriti Bharati is already doing a lot of this.

Another aspect on offline outreach might be to look at state governemnets where Sanskrit is accorded high priority. For instance, Karnataka and Chattisgarh. (in Chattisgarh, it is actually the official language.)

Digital Preservation fo Sanskrit

A very important social benefit that all of you are supporting is the preservation of Sanskrit heritage. In this context, you should also consider giving some more extra care towards projects like Wikisource, Wiktionary, and Wikiquote for Sanskrit. All these are ways of participating in digital preservation of Sanskrit. Specifically on Wikisource, you can also look at digitization of documents either directly or through partnerships with interested organisations. There are so many Sanskrit artifacts in archives which are only in physical form now. I should say digitizing all these will benefit other indic languages also.

Can I request as many Sanskrit wikipedians to share you thoughts about these ideas. Do you think they are the right ideas for Sanskrit? If so and if not, why? Would you suggest any alternate ideas? If you like these ideas, which ones would you like to work on? Is there any help you need? Would you be interested in getting connected to other community members who might also be interested? Please share your ideas.

The reason I am asking everyone to participate is it will help us all as a community to identify people who have similar interests and to start interacting and working closely on these interests. The ideal outcome of this post is for the community to start planning some of these activities as a group. There are two ways of doing this. One is, if community members start discussing on this page and form groups interested in particular ideas. Another way, if you don’t know who to contact or would prefer to reach out separately is to email me at shiju@wikimedia.org and I will help connect you with the right people.

I am really excited by the potential of Sanskrit wiki community. I want you all to know that I am here to help you. Please feel free to reach out for any help you might need. Please also engage with me in this discussion as it will help you connect with other community members.--Shiju Alex (WMF) (चर्चा) १३:०८, १३ जनुवरि २०१२ (UTC)

Three great font sets for Devanagari Unicode[सम्पादयतु]

Please visit this and associated pages to see three Devanagari Unicode font sets viz. Chandas, Uttara and Siddhanta. These fonts have also variation versions incorporating extra characters and ligatures used specifically in vedic sanskrit. (Some of them are yet to get a Unicode value).


It is suggested that you use any of the suitable fonts from this set as the default devanagari font for your browser. These fonts may also be added to our Input methods by the 'narayam' team. Administrators may please consider along this direction.

Updates from India Program Team[सम्पादयतु]

This is the first post from the India Program team regarding the team. I have been posting updates on the various mailing lists - but am acutely aware that the majority of our community is on village pumps or project pages and hence this post. Do excuse me for posting something which is not solely focused on this project, but the work we are doing has learnings that you might find useful for your project. Here are 5 important links that you might find useful

  • There is an India Program page on meta - which has links to a number of important workstreams (on the right of the page)
  • Here is your India Program team. Feel free to reach out for any help or to provide any suggestion - or just to say hello!
  • I submitted the following mid-year report to the community on January 15th 2011 - outlining the activities for 2011 and the priorities for 2012. Strictly speaking, this wasn't a mid-year report because it covered all of 2011, but going forward, I intend to make it a half-yearly affair. Please add your comments or suggestions here, or below this post.
  • I have recently started monthly updates. The monthly update for February is available here. Please add your comments or suggestion here. The areas of emphasis for March are here. Please add your comments or here. This is really useful for us to ensure that we are doing what you need most.
  • I have also started a new tab on the India Program page for Learnings, called Gyan. I think it is going to be a pretty cool place for us to put together a whole host of learnings, lessons, heartbreaks, Eureka moments and inspirations - gathered from all over the community. Stay tuned for more!
  • One of the essential things that India Program needs to constantly work out is keeping our community informed of the work that we are doing - so that this work is clearer but also to help cross-pollinate ideas amongst a wider set of community members who might not have been engaged on specific village pump / talk page discussion or involved in particular activities (e.g. outreach events) or wikiprojects. I propose to have a fortnightly IRC for the community with India Program. (For those who are not familiar with IRC, it is an Internet messaging system similar to a regular chat room. It's very simple to use and you can join in by clicking on the following link. This would be done on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month at 9pm IST (which is GMT + 0530) - THOUGH NOT THIS MONTH - BECAUSE I HAVE MISSED THE TIMELINE. Just for March, we will do it on March 15th and March 29th (both at 9pm IST which is GMT + 0530). I suggest that these chats are focused on specific work streams. As with many community meet-ups - folks will give time to attend a meet-up or participate in an IRC only if there is a topic of relevance to them. Therefore, we will do one IRC on Indic languages and one on Outreach & Communications. The March 15th one will be focused on Indic Languages and the one on March 29th will be on Outreach & Communications. (All IRCs will start with a re-cap of India Programs activities.) There is quite a bit of overlap on these topics - so feel free to join both. Please do also invite anyone who is interested to know more about India Program or - even more importantly - interact with fellow Wikimedians. As always, the logs will be put up on meta for the benefit of those who can't attend and for the record.

Please feel free to translate this post for the benefit of the larger audience. In fact, I'd be really grateful if you did!

Updates on Social Media Pilot[सम्पादयतु]

Greetings! Here is a small update on the Social Media pilot supported by India Program. This pilot is running on two Facebook groups for Wikipedia activities: one in English (One is You can also write on Wikipedia) and one in Odia (Odia Wikipedia). Both of these are being piloted to see if we can explain the very basics of editing to new editors and to encourage them to make their first basic edits. This is done You can visit these groups to see the regular editing sessions that we are conducting there. So far, we have been able to get 30 first time editors in English and 10 in Odia - all of whom have completed a few basic tasks (like creating usernames, corrected mistakes, adding references, inter-wiki links!)

Facebook is a useful way of engaging with young users because they are more comfortable there. Here is a 19 point comprehensive guide that we've developed to illustrate the kind of language, nature of messages and way of interacting on Fb that you might find useful and can implement on your groups as well. Please note the mini-editing sessions we have devised with just 5 tasks to make the start of a new editor's Wiki journey really simple! If you need any help to try this pilot in your group please write to me (noopur@wikimedia.org). (Even if your community does not yet have a facebook page, or if the page is inactive right now, I can support you.) Happy to help!Noopur28 (चर्चा) ११:२३, ३० मेय् २०१२ (UTC)

Lessons on community building[सम्पादयतु]

Dear all, Assamese Wikipedia has seen phenomenal growth in the past one year. It currently has 31 active editors and 6 Wikiprojects (from 10 editors and no project in November 2011.) Their average monthly edits increased from 3000 in April 2011 to 5000 in November 2011. Congratulations, Assamese Community! India Program worked closely the Assamese community - and this work was part of Shiju's pilot focused on basic community building. There are several lessons for how small (and larger) communities can be built. It is worth reflecting on what inspired this progress, and to share these with all other communities.


Strong communication: Like Shiju developed strong personal bonds with Assamese Wikipedians to guide them in their efforts, any community needs open communication, exchange of ideas and brainstorming to keep its projects going.
Initial push: Some of us are experienced editors and some might need help getting started. Shiju helped conduct the first two outreach sessions in Assam and this gave the community confidence to do more.
Encouraging collaboration: The basic idea of any Wikiproject is working together. A single editor can write many articles but a group of editors can manage a Wikiproject of hundreds of articles!
Building capacity and confidence: What started with basic support, translations and outreach advice by Shiju resulted in a wonderful 10th anniversary celebration where all editors themselves confidently put forth ideas to promote Assamese Wikipedia.
Healthy environment: Any organization, club or even a group of friends needs cooperation and productive inputs to progress. Like the Assamese Wikipedia family, young and old people from different walks of life who contribute selflessly to Wikipedia need that motivation to continue. Let's always strive to make it a pleasant experience.

While this update focuses on how the Assamese community has successfully woven together a bunch of great friendships, collaborations and figured a great way of working toegether, these learnings could help every community think about what they could also do, or do more of!. If you want to discuss measures to build or improve your community or need our help to start a Wikiproject, you can write to Shiju (salex@wikimedia.org) or if you are interested in conducting outreach sessions, do reach out to Nitika (nitika@wikimedia.org) Noopur28 (चर्चा) ११:३२, २० जून् २०१२ (UTC)

Presenting Chatasabha[सम्पादयतु]

Hi All,

This message is in English, sincere apologies for that.

New editors across Indic Wikipedias often face problems while editing for which need they help. However, most don't know where they can ask questions or get clarifications as they are usually unfamiliar with village pumps or mailing lists or even talk pages on basic editing. Many existing editors want to help new editors and could appreciate a central place where they can meet and help new editors. India Program has started a pilot to support the Odia community's help desk, Chatasabha. (Incidentally, "Chata" means student and "Sabha" means community, in Odia.) This pilot will build on the community's existing efforts - and seeks to provide a structured way of designing and running a Help Desk. It takes learnings from English Wikipedia's Tea House as well as other experiences on Help Desk and similar services.

The Help Desk that is being piloted is user friendly, has guidelines to provide simple answers to new editors and tries to manage the work load of existing community members by providing ready answers to frequently asked questions. The user friendliness of the Help Desk is in the form of being able to ask questions without getting stuck on Wiki markups as well as illustrated answers to some questions.

I have put a page on meta which has the pilot design. Eventually, we would like to help other Indic languages build similar Help Desks. Please do provide your feedback on the talk page.

GLAM Crafts Museum blog post[सम्पादयतु]

Dear all, Here's a blog post cum report on India's first GLAM initiative at the National Crafts Museum! The program started out in English but was taken forward in Hindi to suit the staff members who have been enthusiastically creating articles and editing in Hindi Wikipedia! The program has been a bold step to prove that GLAM can very well happen in India - with its own design and structure and it has also given the Hindi community a precious gift of 6 new editors.

A special thanks to Roboture who has been with us in each and every meet and helped train editors, Yann for his first set of invaluable Commons contributions and to Aniruddhajnu and Siddhartha Ghai for coming down to the museum to inspire the staff members.

Hope this gives more courage to any community that wants to start a similar project! Would love to provide any help needed. Noopur28 (चर्चा) ०६:३७, २५ जूलय् २०१२ (UTC)

Train-the-Trainer Program - 2015 (Announcement)[सम्पादयतु]

Dear Wikimedians,

Apologies for posting this in English. If any friends could translate this in Sanskrit please help in translating.

As most of you are aware, the Centre for Internet and Society's Access To Knowledge program (CIS-A2K) conducted the first Wikipedia Train-the-Trainer (TTT) programme in 2013 with an aim to support and groom leadership skills in the community members. We are extremely thankful to all the senior Wikimedians who acted as Resource Persons for the 2013 event. Achal, Arjuna, Hari, Shymal, Tinu and Viswa! Without your help we could not have conducted it so successfully.

This message is to let you all know that we have scheduled to conduct the second iteration of this program at the end of February 2015. We are inviting applications from interested Indian Wikimedians. Please see this page on Meta for more details.

Some important dates:
January 27, 2015 - Last date for registration.
January 30, 2015 - Confirmation of selected participants
February 26 to March 1, 2015 - TTT-2015 workshop

We are working on the schedule and other details. You are welcome to leave your suggestions and inputs here. Please write to us at tanveer@cis-india.org and vishnu@cis-india.org if you have any further queries.

Hi, came across this advertisement for paid editing in Samskrit Wikipedia. I would like to know if Samskrit Wikipedia community is officially associated with this group and ad. I am aware that Samskritha Bharathi is associated with Samksrit Wikipedia's growth and many of their employees are engaged in editing Samskrit Wikipedia as part of their job. But, advertising by anyone in the name of Wikipedia inviting paid editors is not a healthy precedent. Please also note Wikimedia Foundation policy on paid contributions without disclosures. I request Samskrit Wikipedia community to take action on this ad. Thanks.--Ravidreams (चर्चा) ०९:४९, २ मई २०१५ (UTC)

नमस्ते @Ravidreams: ! आपको पता नहीं की जब मैं नया नया आया था तब मैंने ये विज्ञापन तैयार किया था । परन्तु बाद में बेंगळुरु में TTT कार्यक्रम के बाद कुछ बातो का पता चला कि क्या करना और कैसे करना । तब ये भी मुझे पता चला था कि वेतनाधारितसम्पादन विकिपीडिया में मान्य नहीं है । परन्तु आप जो विज्ञापन देख रहे है वो पुराना है और अभी हमारा सङ्गणकचालक अवकाश पर है । अतः यः पुराना विज्ञापन ही दिखाई दिया आपको । परन्तु नवीन संस्करण में आपको इस चित्र अनुसार दिखाई देगा । जिस में संस्कृतविकिपीडिया नहीं लिखा रहेगा । आपने कहा की संस्कृतभारती द्वारा वेतनाधारित सम्पादन करवाया जाता है । कुछ हद तक ये बात सही है परन्तु पूर्णरूप से नहीं । क्योंकि @Shubha:-महोदया वेनताधारितसम्पादिका नहीं हैं, वे संस्कृतसेवा के लिए, संस्कृतभाषा के लिए कार्य करने वाली कार्यकर्त्री हैं । वे संस्कृतभारती से कोई वेतन नहीं पाती वे संस्कृतभारती की कार्यकर्त्री (Volunteer) है । ये तो आपकी जानकारी के लिए ही कहा । धन्यवाद आपका इस ओर संस्कृतविकिपीडियासमुदाय का ध्यान आकर्षित करने के लिए । आपका कार्य प्रशंसनीय एवं सतर्कतापूर्ण है । और हाँ उस विज्ञापन की पूर्ण जवाब देही मेरी है । इसमें संस्कृतभारती का या उनके किसी व्यक्ति का कोई लेना देना नहीं है । चूकि ये अब ये एक व्यक्तिगत चर्चा हो चुकि है तो मैं आपको निवेदन करूँगा कि इस विषये में अगर आप आगे कुछ कहना चाहते हैं तो मेरे सम्भाषणपृष्ठम् पर लिखें । अस्तु । ११:१५, २ मई २०१५ (UTC)

संस्कृतविकिगणस्य अभिप्रायः/Opinion of Sanskrit Wikicommunity[सम्पादयतु]

संस्कृतविकिसमाजस्य पक्षतः अहम् अत्र स्पष्टीकर्तुम् इच्छामि यत् अस्याः विज्ञापिकायाः संस्कृतविकिगणस्य च कोपि सम्बन्धः नास्ति । संस्कृतविकिगणः तु विकिमीडियासङ्घटनस्य नियमानुगुणमेव कार्यं करिष्यति । विकिमीडियासङ्घटनायाः नियमानुसारं विकिपीडियाजालपुटस्य कार्यं सर्वैरपि स्वाभिलाषानुगुणमेव क्रियते । अत्र कदापि सधनव्यवहारः न भवति । अस्याः विज्ञापिकायाः दर्शनेन सार्वजनिकेषु संस्कृतविकिकार्यविषये एव असमीचीनः भावः भवति इत्यतः विज्ञापिकायां संस्कृतजालपुटस्य सम्पर्कः अचिरादेव निष्कासनीयः । कस्यामपि विज्ञापिकायां विकिजालपुटस्य उपयोगः केनापि कदापि न करणीयः।

On behalf of Sanskrit Wikipedia Community, I wish to categorically state the following.
The advertisement calling for Editors, Assistant Editors and Typists for Sanskrit Wikipedia and giving reference to Sanskrit Wikipedia Website jolted everybody to the core, as it totally contravenes the fundamental spirit of Wikipedia concept. The Wikimedia Foundation was equally concerned with this advertisement. We hereby state that it is neither inserted or promoted by us.
As everybody knows, work is done in Wikipedia Website (of any language) on a totally and purely voluntary basis, by willing volunteers. Therefore it becomes incomprehensible that an advertisement was inserted giving reference to Sanskrit Wikipedia Website calling for employment of Editors etc. offering monetary benefits. The entire Sanskrit Wiki community regretted that the said advertisement has given rise to totally unwanted adverse opinion about Sanskrit Wiki community, and this advertisement is against the entire philosophy on which Wikipedia is founded upon. It is to be clearly borne in mind that Sanskrit Wikipedia Community is, and will always be, following the guidelines established by Wikimedia Foundation.
Therefore it is earnestly solicited that the reference about Sanskrit Wikipedia website given in the advertisement is removed forthwith. In future, there shall be no reference to Wikipedia Website, in any advertisement whatsoever. --Shubha (चर्चा) ०७:५६, ५ मई २०१५ (UTC)

  6. Support समर्थनम्-This advertisement calling for jobs is uncalled for. It is deviating from true spirits for which Wikimedia stands. To clear the clouds of doubts immediately remove as someone sees this as quackery advertisement. I hope that the true spirit of Wikipedia is upheld. --N.R.Bahlika Rao (चर्चा) ०७:३०, ६ मई २०१५ (UTC)




Thanks for clarifying these. At this moment, nature of editing by Samskritha Bharathi employees may also be suitably informed in their user pages. I request the community to take action in withdrawing this ad from every forum. I could still see that in the Facebook group. Thanks.--Ravidreams (चर्चा) ०४:५२, ७ मई २०१५ (UTC)

मैं संस्कृतभाषा मैं बोल सकता हूँ परन्तु लिखने में अभी थोडी समस्या है । कभी कभी किसी गुरु की सहायता से लिखता भी हूँ परन्तु यहाँ अभी कोई सहायता अनुपलब्ध होने से हिन्दी में लिखने के लिए क्षमा चाहता हूँ । उक्त विषयों की गम्भीरता वही समझ सकता है, जो संस्कृत के प्रति सेवाभाव से समर्पित हो । जिसे पता हो कि अनावश्यक और अनुपयुक्त लेखों के निर्माण से बहुत हानि होती है । संस्कृतविकिपीडिया का विकास पर ग्रहण लगता है ऐसे सम्पादनों से । इस घटना को यदि कसी आतंकवादी गतिविधि से सरखाया जाए तो कोई अतिशयोक्ति नहीं होगी । क्योंकि जैसे आतंकवाद देश की उन्नति में विघ्न है, वैसे ही संस्कृतविकिपीडिया में ऐसा सम्पादन बडा विघ्न है । इससे मैं किसी सदस्य को आतंकवादी नहीं कह रहा, अपि तु ऐसे सम्पादन की गम्भीरता परिणाम को आतंकवाद से सरखा रहा हूँ । मेरे मत में नेहलजी और उदितजी ने जो कुछ लिखा है उस प्रकार करना चाहिए । जयतु संस्कृतम् । Sshihora (चर्चा) ०३:४१, ११ जनवरी २०१६ (UTC)

I would like to inform you about CIS-A2K's new initiative Train-a-Wikipedian. It is an online learning initiative for editors and potential administrators to hone their skillsets related to Wikipedia editing and it's policies and guidelines in details. As you know, there is a lot to learn but it is difficult at times for many editors to find out exactly what they intend to learn to help their community in a better manner. This initiative would be useful to:

  1. empower Editors to become better editors.
  2. help Potential Administrators: here we will discuss Wikipedia policies and guidelines, admin's tasks and other responsibilities (Please note that admins are always selected by the communities, we would only help the participating editors to learn about the admin tasks)
  3. help Admins to become more skilled and powerful. The training will be mostly online, but we may conduct offline sessions too if needed. If you want to nominate someone or join yourself, please do it by including the username below. --Titodutta (चर्चा) १६:१६, २४ जनवरी २०१६ (UTC)

Greetings from CIS-A2K,

It gives us great pleasure to inform that the Train-the-Trainer 2016 programme organised by CIS-A2K is going to be held from 15-17 June, Bangalore.

Train-the-Trainer programme was conceptualised in order to bridge the gap between wiki volunteers/enthusiasts who would like to conduct off reach activities and have been discouraged due to non availability of resources and support. The three day residential event will include presentations by the participants regarding a plan to improve their wiki-projects, expert sessions about conducting effective outreach activities, best practices from the global wiki communities, revised grant structure of WMF, activities to understand WMF strategy and vision, understanding global metrics and coming up with a concrete plan by participants in association with A2K to improve their wiki-projects.

A2K invites Wikimedians to apply for this programme. Participants will be selected based on their on wiki and off wiki activities and their responses to the questions asked in the Google form. Selected participants are required to finish pre-work assigned to them without fail. Please fill the Google form given below and write to us at tanveer@cis-india.org, tito@cis-india.org and rahim@cis-india.org for more details.

Why Rio Olympics 2016 Matters for India[सम्पादयतु]

While India struggled to win medals, ending its tally with just two medals, there had been some spectacular performances. Abhinav Bindra, Jitu Rai were only marginally short at conceiving medals, while Saina-Bopana reached till the Bronze medal match, Depika Kumari lost to the world's best. At the most, Indian Hockey contingent reached the knock-out stage after so many years.

Let us keep doing our bit, Tokoyo 2020 Olympics would definitely bring more medals to India. The India At Rio Olympics 2016 is still in progress. Let's keep building it. Thank You. --Abhinav619 (sent using MediaWiki message delivery (चर्चा) १५:५७, २३ अगस्त २०१६ (UTC))
