1. Till the Britsh Raj, Brahmins kept a large part of Indian society out of 
bounds from knowledge which was in Sanskrit. They had provisions to pour molten 
lead into the ears of non-brahmins (including all women) who even heard a word 
of sanskrit. knowledge contained in that language is now available in English 
and Sanskrit only symbolises tyranny. Do we need Wikipedia in Sanskrit with the 
support of govt funding?

2. Why cannt we have a wikepedia in Pali as well, the language which was used 
by Budha and which can give us an alternate view on life to that of vedic view?
