|Statement (not more than 400 words)
||I am an active Wikimedian, and a participant of different Wikimedia programs/processes. You might have seen my posts or comments on different topics on Wikimediaindia-l or Wikimedia-l or on Village pumps. Wikimedia Strategy is definitely the most important thing at this movement, and the Movement Charter is really crucial. I am showing my interest to serve in the drafting committee, because—
- possibly I can add my experience and inputs in the process, and the draft preparation.
- this will give me an opportunity to directly check and try to ensure that we have an effective and community-friendly movement charter.
- bring forward/highlight the necessities of the affiliates and communities of India, and Global South (I am not really flag-bearing/flag-waving here, but this is the region/area where I have been working for several years now)
- last but not in least, I believe that this will be a good learning experience.
