Activities and lessons learned






Wikisangamotsavam 2013, an immensely successful event in creating and spreading awareness about the Wikimeida intiatives and necessity of knowledge freedom initiatives to all 'Malayalees' especially to the common people of Alappuzha which is a district of Kerala, a South Indian state. It was concluded with jovial spirits and a festive mood. Featured as the final item among a multitude of events and sessions, the Wiki Jalayatra (literally meaning ‘Wiki Water Voyage’) imprinted its own picturesque images often interleaved with abundant green and lavish blue backdrops onto the studious and life-long memories of many Malayalam Wikipedians.

It was the second edition of an labourious mission that was started in 2012 at Kollam. Malayalam Wikipedians have been already conducting simple and modest annual meet-ups since a few years. But they were mostly as isolated geographically as the tiny district capitals of Kerala. Evolving through several phases, the Alappuzha program in 2012 turned out to become the first-ever local language Indic Wikimedian Conference in history.

Besides facilitating a common ground for all Malayalam Wikimedian contributors to meet up, brain storm and evolve new strategies, this years Second edition had set up further goals: to name a few, interactions among peer communities of India, introduction of state of the art technology that will complement and enrich open source and free knowledge, the bilateral collaboration of Wikimedia projects and social groups of differently abled people. To be in harmony with this target, Wikisangamothsavam-2013 had a multifaceted multidirectional spectrum of events embedded meticulously within its schedule.

Undoubtedly this year’s Wikisangamotsavam was successful in achieving these aims. The main accomplishment of this year’s event would that of creating awareness about the QR code technique and about Wikipedia and its practical possibilities in relation to the town itself, among the residents of Aleppey town, in minimum time. The presence of the national guests,who represented other languages, throughout the event was another speciality of the event.

The organisation and success of the Wikisangamotsav 2013 were the fruits of hardwork and dedication of many wiki enthusiasts. The preparations began as early as in the first week of October. A suggestion in Malayalam Wikipedia mail list which was followed by a discussion initiated the whole process. In conclusion to this discussion, it was decided to conduct Wikisangamotsavam and Alappey was selected as the venue. The main wikipedia contributors from Alappey, T.K Sujith, M.P Manoj Kumar took up the leadership to make the event a huge success.



An unofficial meeting regarding the imminent Wikisangamotsavam and its possibilties was held during the the SMC 12th Anniversary meeting in Thrissur in the second week of October. The Wikipedia admins Sujith, Kannan Shanmukham, Manoj, Viswaprabha, Balashankar, the active wikipedians Sebin Abraham, Navaneeth Krishnan, Sujanika Ramanunni, Nisar V.K, Shaji Arikad, Akbar Ali, Sreejith Koiloth, Bipin, Sairam, Santhosh Thottingal, Kavya Manohar, Sneha, Vishnuvardhan (A2K Director, CIS Bangalore), Wikipedia well wishers and supporters Ashokan Njarakkal, M.P Parameshwaran actively participated in the meeting.

Students from Kollam Anchal West School

On the first day of the event, after noon the seminar started on the subject “Wikipedia and Malayalam”. The famous Malayalam academic Scaria Zacharia has took the wraps off the program. As per him , the community has to give importance to the immense relation of technology and humanity. Inclining the language for technology purpose as well as vice versa is never been a good sign. And there are a huge number of fascist people who are trying to hinder the language amendment. They used to come up with well-made offences when a new word invented. They have to understand the fact that the languages improve thru new word alteration to the language. Have to think about, Malayalam language comes under which one among Hereditary, Scientific and Human languages.

7. Wikipedia for Differently abled

This must be the first time when a workshop was organised for differently abled/ visually challenged individuals by any Indian language Wikipedia community. Though computer literacy and awareness of information technology is remarkably high in today's differently abled individuals, they have only meagre knowledge about wikipedia. They still find it difficult to use internet in malayalam due to various technical issues. However, it is them who can get the most out of wikipedia. The absence of non-text forms (audio books, for instance) of knowledge is a serious problem the visually challenged individuals face. It is an irony that even in the age of technological advancement, these individuals are forced to depend on others for knowledge acquisition. The workshop addressed areas/questions like, “what is Wikipedia?, “who all can use it?” “what is an article?”, “how to write in Malayalam in wikipedia?” and “similar initiatives” . The Wikipedia workshop was an eye opener even for those visually challenged who were familiar with computers. Espeak is the only open source speech synthesiser for differently abled individuals today. Espeak is the only medium through which visually challenged individuals can access Wikipedia. From Kasargod to Thiruvanathapuram, there has been representatives from the visually challenged community from all the districts. A total of 17 attended the event. Many brought laptops for the workshop. representatives from Schools for the blind, Teachers, employees were present for the event.

Dr. Iqbal directed the seminar through. Dr. Ajay Kumar, The secretary of Swathanthra Malayalam Computing Anivar Aravind , The state secretary of Malayalam Ikyavedi V.P Marcos were given speeches. Scaria Zacharia had cut the cake for 11th Birthday of Malayalam Wikipedia. C.P Abdul Hakkim Master, who was leading the Wiki GNU Linux CD got recognized in the program with the certificate.

Wiki Workshop : Study classes for the newcomers were conducted at “Sasthamkotta” venue. Around 50 people participated in the event. The class was conducted by Shivahari. Issues related copyright and other wiki initiatives were discussed in the study class. Seminar on Wikipedia and Malayalam language

Lessons learned

What worked well?
Improvement of peer co-operation and communication of Malayalam Wikimedians.
Creation and adaption of new wikimedians in Malayalam Community
Creation of new articles in Malayalam Wikipedia
Quality improvisation of articles in Malayalam wikipedia
First attempt to gather inter-community delegates from other Indic Wikimedia projects by a local community from India.
What didn't work?
Reporting back the progress and completion status on the conclusion of project in due time. We are aware that this report was vehemently delayed.
Track management
We realized that while conducting events with continuous presentations on a multi-track basis, there should be adequate isolation between the different venues….
What would you do differently if you planned a similar project?
Will Plan early to get more outreach and also to invite members from other community.
Will Employ a team to document the project and make report. This will avoid the delay in reporting
We will definitely conduct a mini meet-up for preparing report and consolidate accounts and expenses immediately after the programme. All the persons who responsible for the programme will mobilise for the same and that meetup will be included in the programme schedule as a post-conference agenda.
