Hi everyone,

As many of you already know that on the International Mother Language Day
(21 February) we've started a national level Wikidata editing campaign on
content related to India. The campaign ends on Open Data Day (3 March), and
now we're half-way to it. So I just thought of sharing the progress with
the community.
