Hi, I will be travelling to Madurai, Erode from 1-4 Dec. and would like to meet wikipedians there.
I am expected to have some free time in the evenings in Madurai on 1st. and on the other days in Erode. If anyone is interested, please send me a mail offlist so that we can exchange our contacts and decide timings/venues.
