Oh, I am under no apprehensions about ownership of WikiProject India. I am only a volunteer who tends to it as SIG chair on being requested by some colleagues. So it is my something in my care - a trust belonging to the people in which I look after something which belongs to all.
Ownership here can only mean the feeling that Wikipedia "belongs" to all of us and because of that it is inherently good and desirable of us to work for it - not that I "own" this or that article. When you "own" something you care about it and work for it. I am sure that is what is meant by Nitika.
