I'll be more than happy to formulate a plan/proposal for this.

Pragyaan 12: http://www.pragyan.org/12/home/  is running through 23rd-26th Feb 
that means we have enough time to organise this well. Going through the website 
I feel that they'll have different events running simultaneously on all 4 days 
and don't not have provisions for stalls. But please correct me if Im wrong.

Here is what I propose:

1. Organise at least 8 Wiki sessions during these 4 days. We can keep the 
morning sessions in English and every evening we can conduct in Tamil. Doing 2 
sessions every day will mean that the participants can pick and choose the date 
and time according to their own convenience. This might lead to more people 
attending the session.
2. We should organise Editathons everyday where participants who have already 
attended wiki sessions during the day can join in. It's important for newbies 
to experience and practice editing before they fall in love with Wikipedia and 
Editathons can provide them such a platform. :)
3. I personally really like the idea of Trivia sessions. It keeps the 
participants enthusiastic and interested.
4. How about using this tech fest as a platform to get interested people kick 
off a Wikipedia Club?
5. How about inviting the participants to join in the Tamil Wiki Media Contest?

Participating in an event as big as this one will definitely need more 
volunteers. Could I please request more people from Chennai, Coimbatore,  
Bangalore, Kerala to raise hands if they'd like to volunteer on ground for this 
event. 

More ideas/suggestions are welcome.

Thanks
Nitika
