Deal all, As a part of helping the community to reach out to more people apart from the presentations, handouts, FAQs and mailing list support we also have need for more visuals. Audio/Video clips containing Indian Wikipedians sharing their message "I EDIT WIKIPEDIA" or "I EDIT AN INDIAN LANGUAGE WIKIPEDIA" or "WIKIPEDIA IS HELPING ME DOCUMENTING MY HERITAGE" will create impact among people and motivate them to contribute to Wikipedia. Many people use Wikipedia in a daily basis without being aware of they can also [Edit] it, social media, Youtube, mails containing link to such a video can be used to reach this message to them. Moreover, such videos which are already there in Outreach (outreach.wikimedia.org) Bookshelf might make some people feel it's project being managed by some foreigners. Seeing some real Indians editing Wikipedia with the Main page of an Indian language background will definitely make this message clearer.
If there is a fairly good no of community members located in anywhere in India (e.g Pune, Bangalore and Mumbai community) we can ask the community members say it altogether aloud apart from one/two community members speaking in their own language. I will be posting the details in the community village pumps, you are allowed to send as many people's footage as you can provided the video and audio quality are reasonable good. We will be collecting footage from all the communities and do a post production. Subha Community & Program Support, India Program Wikimedia Foundation
