If I analyse  Marathi language unicode Websites other than Marathi Wikipedia , 
most of them(99%)  are drupal(cms)  based and many of them are quite popular 
community discussion sites.

Many of the readers coming from such sites usualy complaint saying that they 
find our(mediawiki)  brackets (over all  wiki mark up confusing).

What kind of help we can offer at wikis to new comers coming from drupal cms? 
any other indian languages has got similler experiences?

Announcing Drupal Sprint India, a gathering of Drupal enthusiast from

all over India, to contribute to Drupal development.

Drupal is probably the best community driven CMS in open source.

Community driven softwares need community contributions for regular

enhancements and this is your chance to contribute and gain karma.

developers, documentation and translation guys will get together to

Drupal to local languages.

You need not have *any experience* with enhancing Drupal before hand,

even newbies are invited.

That is not all, we have more in store for you.

Got any Drupal success story to share or you have put Drupal to any

innovative use or any magnificent case study where you have integrated

Drupal with third party web services or web sites? This is the time to

showcase this. Parallel to sprint, we will hold talks and workshops to

showcase the capabilities of Drupal beyond CMS to build website. If
