hi,

Some work related to this was discussed on the list earlier. Some of this
work has been collated here -
http://wiki.wikimedia.in/Projects:_Wikipedia_for_Schools/Indian_version. See
the talk page for some backstory on this project.

Ashwin Baindur (currently on vaccation) was involved in trying to make it
happen. Do see if this works well?

warm regards,
Pradeep Mohandas
