Dear Indic Wikipedians,

India <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India>  celebrates 28 February as
National Science Day <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Science_Day>
each year to mark the discovery of the Raman effect
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raman_Effect>  by Indian scientist Sir
Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C.V._Raman>  on
28 February 1928. Raman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Prize_in_Physics>  For this discovery,
in the year 1930. Most schools celebrate National Science day by arranging
science festivals, demo and competition of science models, visiting science
museums, etc.

Instead of celebrating National Science Day as just one-day event, it is
planned to have a month long events in Indian language Wikipedias. These
events will be online and offline editathons, outreach activities and
meetups. The goal is to add more articles on science topics to Indian
language Wikipedias on topics on which articles are not present in the
respective language Wikipedia as of now. Additionally, efforts will be made
to enhance and improve existing articles on science topics.

Please join this. Add your event here -

Thanks and regards,

Pavanaja
