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.
