Hoi, Localisation is a project where there is a lot to win for the usability of the Indian Wikipedias.. in my opinion, this is something that in my opinion an Indian chapter could and should champion. For your information OSM also gets localised at translatewiki.net.
Giving all the Indian places an article in the many Wikipedias is another big project, a project that will benefit from cooperation and a project that makes the Indian chapter very much an all India chapter.
