Dear All,

It almost took me quite sometime to go through the mailers above.

I honestly go by what Ashwin says. I pretty much understand that India,
needs more local events to establish itself inside the country and then we
can aim to bring in Wikimania's.

If I may make a suggestion, I would like to say that, in future, the events
we organize can be aimed to conduct a Wikimania in India soil. Lets all
together aspire to create events which will ultimately make us ready to
organize a Wikimania in India.

I suggest we pitch in some SME (Subject Matter Experts) from different
industries and try to involve them in working with wikipedia as editors.
For E.g. we can have some one from IT companies to work on the technical
content placed in Wikipedia.. similarly ppl from varied industries can
involve themselves... we can also conduct local events centralized with the
industries... by doing so, we get more volunteers to participate and help
in team building :) in a year or two, this practice will make us sufficient
enough to conduct Wikimania's

Lets make Wikimania as an ultimate destination to reach and the local
events we organize (like GLAM, Workshops) etc can be minor milestones we
wish to reach.

Regards,
Ade.
