I am Abhishek Joshi the Organizer of Ahmedabad Meetup and first of the
thing who told you such a scrap as your are not at the meetup and you don't
even know what the all we have done. We had healthy discussion on Wiki
Project Gujarat and Infact Anirudh encourage us to write on Gujarati
articles. Please before writing such a email verified your self and really
its a shameful act to attack someone personally.
