Hi Wikipedians, The first community newsletter from the Wikimedia India community was released in September 2010. Since that time, various community members have been involved with creating a regular version of the newsletter; today,* we are pleased to announce the commencement of WikiPatrika*, a monthly newsletter of Wikimedia community, chapter and foundation updates from India.
'Patrika' is the closest pan-Indian word that has roughly similar meaning across the country that also conveys the right spirit; it has a multitude of meanings, but is broadly understood to mean 'journal' or 'magazine'. WikiPatrika is an independent publication which is not affiliated with the Wikimedia Foundation or the Wikimedia India chapter. We sincerely thank the Wikimedia India chapter for allowing us to host this newsletter on wikimedia.in .
