Lilavati's Daughters Edit-a-thon

The Indian Academy of Sciences brought out a book titled Lilavati's Daughters. The book concentrates on 50 Women of Sciences in India. A few people attended Wikimania 2013 in Hong Kong and few people watched it on live stream, a talk by User:Keilana on articles on Women Scientists and thought this might be a good idea to an edit-a-thon on. This page is a placeholder for the event. Please discuss on the talk page. Prad2609 (talk) 17:12, 10 August 2013 (UTC)~
