Sorry about that - don't know how or why it happens. What I said was 
that with the participation of a critical mass of Wikipedians, each 
language Wikipedia could possibly reflect the culture of those 
language-speakers, i.e. what they want to see on Wikipedia - I certainly 
did not mean to imply that Japanese Wikipedia has no citations or that 
they are not required in India (just that we might have to try harder 
for this in cultures with a strong oral tradition)...and that a good 
measure of an Indian language Wikipedia's success might be to compare 
it's readership with that of an online news or entertainment portal in 
that language.

Here's to more clarity in the future?!
