Yesterday one of my journalist friend Arvind Shesh posted on Facebook about the
content of the article ^^ on Aruna Roy  and then it came into my notice.
First of all I want to clear here that the mail is not to blame anybody...in
fact we all who are associated with Wikipedia are somehow responsible for the
content present on wikipedia. In fact we can justify even the factual blunder
but we can not justify such an obscene and vulgar language what was used for
Aruna Roy; not only for Aruna Roy, we cannot justify these type of sentences
for anybody. Thanks to the Hindi wiki editor, now it is removed after I
approached probably .
But by going through the content, keeping continuous watch is necessary. I can
understand that its purely a volunteer work and there is great need of many
volunteers for our Indian languages. So we need to attract more volunteers for
editing and content generation. So would be great to here from the seasoned
wikipedians about how this can be done.
I am new to Hindi wikipedia community and I am trying to understand the
community perspective and approach.
