Yesterday one of my journalist friend Arvind Shesh posted on Facebook about the 
content of the article ^^ on Aruna Roy [1] 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 [2].  

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.
