Dear All, I am 100% support with Tinu Cherian opinion. And as per my knowledge this is first time where we meet. If truly any meet up organized in Kolkata that is our great news. I am strange I have been quite actives in both Bengali and English wikipedia about 3 year, I have never seen any wikipedia kolkata meet up page.
Ok , number is not our main mission. Our mission is create a free online encyclopedia.
