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.
