Dear India Community

I'm writing to inform you that I plan to leave my current role supporting 
Wikimedia in India.  I am going to be exploring opportunities and evaluating 
options that are closer to my career aspirations and my personal circumstances. 
 I will be working through to ensure that there is a smooth transition - and 
this is likely to take 2-3 months.  I am writing now because I felt it 
appropriate and opportune to inform you as early as possible. 

I want to start off by thanking the Wikimedia community and movement for giving 
me this extraordinary opportunity.  Working on something like India Program has 
been something that has been professionally enriching and personally 
fulfilling. Over the past 1 1/2 years, I have been supported by so many of you 
- and I want to thank you for everything you have done!  The passion and 
intellectual firepower of our community has been my constant source of drive 
and guidance.  There are so many examples of powerful stories from all over the 
country: the incredible efforts put in by the IEP Campus Ambassadors in Pune; 
the army of volunteers that drove the outreach push across the country in the 
first few months of this year; the beautiful stories of fantastic community 
initiatives from far and wide across the country and sub-continent, and indeed 
the world; the remarkable stories from so many communities - large, small and 
tiny ones!

I want to thank the team that I have had the pleasure and privilege of working 
with - Nitika, Noopur, Shiju & Subha.  You guys have been wonderful.  The work 
that we are doing is experimental and we have been innovating every day, and I 
know the circumstances have not always been easy.  Take strength and 
inspiration from the large number of community members who have been touched by 
you and appreciate your efforts and value your work.
I will send an actual "over and out" message later.  In the meantime, I will 
continue to work on everything that needs working on.

Happy Editing!

Warmest Regards,
