Hoi,
The Dutch Wikipedia is currently the number 10 in traffic. With only som 20
million people speaking the language there is plenty of scope for Indian
languages to do better. Wishing them to do better makes no difference.

So here are a few things that will make a difference:

   - Make sure that the Indian chapter has money to spend. Make sure that
   Jimmy's message is localised and that the messages at
translatewiki.netthat deal with the donations are localised (Hindi is
at 0% Malayalam at
   100%)
   - Make sure that the localisation for your language is complete and up to
   date. This represents a vast improvement in usability
   - Make sure that the public finds the articles they are looking for.\
   - Learn why the Indonesian Wikipedia has a much easier ride.. Fix the
   language technology issues.
   - Have a plan on how your community will prioritise the things that need
   doing
   - Be happy with any and all improvements and let it be known.. A positive
   happy atmosphere in itself makes it easier to have fun while realising
   objectives (ie doing the work)

Having money helps, making sure that the Fundraiser does an optimal job
needs to be done now. It also shows the WMF organisation that "you" are to
be taken seriously.
Thanks,
      GerardM

and the "Payflow Pro

extensions may be looking for your localisations..
