Hi Lane,

Thank you so much for your kind words,

It is all because of the active participation of the community members in
such initiative and also their effort in making these collaborations
successful.

l also believe that the WikiTungi program by the Odia community has helped
in making the  presence of the movement in the state and spread awareness
of the movement in Odisha. The community members in WikiTungi meetups are
very active and is a good platform for the community to learn and share
about the movement.
