I believe you need to file a bug for this Ashwin. If you want, I can file it for you and get someone to close the request.
Are you sure about the title? I would suggest something like WikiIndia-events or Wikimediaindia-events list. So that it doesn't become useless after the event and can be re-used for coordinating future events. The naming convention for the list also depends on country codes and previous naming convention, Wikimediaindia-events would be a sub-list of Wikimediaindia-l.
