3. Help in building pages on contemporary news events and incidents related to India.
4. Create new articles related to India.

Project PlanEdit

ActivitiesEdit

Tell us how you'll carry out your project. What will you and other organizers spend your time doing?

As I am requesting for the annual bill of a hi-speed broadband connection, it will be helpful for me as for nearly 2 and a half year I am editing hi.wiki with the help of a smartphone and a laptop on a slow 2g connection, because of this I often stuck on editing hi.wiki on my smartphone and find it unfriendly to edit hi.wiki on my laptop. Hindi as a language ranks Fourth in the largest number of Native speakers in the world. Inspite of such a huge speaking base, Hindi Wikipedia has one of the the 'lowest Population to Wikipedia articles ratio' out of all the other languages. With he help of fast connection I will be able to edit hi.wiki on my laptop and will be able to avail for feature and tool of Wikipedia.

How will you let others in your community know about your project (please provide links to where relevant communities have been notified of your proposal, and to any other relevant community discussions)? Why are you targeting a specific audience?

I have proposed this project on [[w:hi:विकिपीडिया:चौपाल#चक्रपाणी (स्वयं) हेतु विकिपीडिया स्कॉलरशिप के अंतर्गत ब्रॉडबैंड इन्टरनेट के वार्षिक (या चर्चा अनुसार) बिल का प्रस्ताव | Community Consensus on Village Pump]]. I usually edit on hindi wiki as I am a native hindi speaker and really feels that hindi language should have internet presence as it is one of the worlds most spoken language.
