Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Chennai Wikipedia 10th Anniversary Celebrations -- 

Hi all,

The tenth anniversary of Wikipedia was celebrated at Madras Institute of 
Technology, Chennai. It was attended by ~70 people including English,Tamil and 
Malayalam Wikipedians. The event started with a cake cutting ceremony. 
Ravichandar spoke about English wikipedia. Mahir spoke about Tamil 
Wikipedia,Wikinews and Wiktionary. A book "Tamil Wikipedia"(in Tamil) written 
Tamil wikipedian and writer Theni.M.Subramani was released by Badri 
Sheshadri(Publisher,New Horizon Media). Badri then spoke about 
Wikipedia,importance of language wikipedia and how books like the one released 
is essential in reaching out to masses. There were discussions and then there 
was a live chat with Jimmy wales over Skype.

I would like to thank CSMIT for providing the venue, Wikimedia Foundation for 
the merchandise and Manian for the cake.

I would also like to thank Manian / Ravishankar (Parithimathi) / Mahir / 
Ravichandar for making this event happen.

I would get all the pictures into one place in commons and post the same. There 
is a video of the book release / Jimmy chat is available here[1]
