Hi, CIS-A2K is allocating huge amount of budget on only five Indian languages. I dont know how other language communities, including my own Bengali, will provide feedback on that. We do not fall in the so-called Focused Language Area (FLA) of CIS-A2K and our feedback dont matter at all.
CIS has been requesting millions of dollars from WMF every year on their so-called 5 focused language areas and doing all kind of propaganda about their so-called progress, in social media, blogs and meta, sometimes claiming volunteer events as their own success. Still I can say, that other non-FLA volunteer Indian communities, including Bengali, are working on-wiki silently on their own without any/very little monetary or organizational support and progressing a lot more than funded Wikimedia projects and I am proud of that as a community member. As India is not a country of only 5 languages, this Focused language concept is completely faulty to me and this shows clear discrimination to other language communities.
