Hi Ravi,

The movement and our interest in the projects would not be same without
you. I've learned a lot from you... from WCI2016 to Project Tiger, you'd
been the constant source of inspiration, motivation, and encouragement. All
the best for your future projects. You are awesome...We'll miss you.

*Hi, I am leaving the Wikimedia Foundation to pursue other ideas and
opportunities. I will be working until 15th of July 2018. During my time
here, it was my honor to work alongside many brilliant colleagues from all
the Asian Wikimedia communities, User Groups, chapters, and CIS-A2K. I am
especially proud that, in collaboration with my team and partners, I had
the opportunity to design, launch, and implement the very successful pilot
partnership called Project Tiger
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Supporting_Indian_
Language_Wikipedias_Program>.This
project and many other initiatives for the Asian region will be continued
according to our team's Annual plan. Please contact
Thanks, Ravi*

Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] National Archives of India
gmail.com>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
Dear fellow Wiki[p|m]edians/ independent researchers,
This is just to bring to your attention that the National Archives of India
have made a major advance with digitizing their contents and it presents an
opportunity that will be quite exciting for those inclined to research.
They are available through http://www.abhilekh-patal.in and require free
registration. Many documents are yet to be digitized and there is an option
to pay for priority digitization after which the digitized contents become
readily available (very similar to the French Digital Library
http://gallica.bnf.fr/) Because of the understandable size of the
contents
and limitations of personnel, it appears that the metadata is often
defective or in need of work. The content has been OCR-ed but with serious
issues which make discovering relevant content a matter of requiring some
search-engine-fu and even pure luck while browsing the contents. We can
however improve the ease of discovery of relevant content.
What volunteer researchers can do
* Search the contents for topics of your interest - if you find something
relevant - you can cite it using cite web (a custom wrapper for the
Archives may be desirable)
* You can add links to the material on the relevant pages - as external
links - perhaps future researchers will make a more careful examination and
use it for referencing
* Include in the edit comment - a suitable #tag - just so that others can
find the archival research of colleagues via
https://tools.wmflabs.org/hashtags/- for now I have been using #NAI but
alternatives can be considered
* Some of the files contain interesting attachments or portions -
signatures of notable persons - photos or more - to give an example - a
file discussing the proscription of a newspaper / magazine for carrying
certain content will include a copy of the newspaper / magazine - these
can*
- if they are identified as being in the public domain* - be extracted and
archived - possibly on the Internet Archive <https://www.archive.org> or
to
Commons <https://commons.wikimedia.org>. (these may however require some
web tricks, PDF-hacks, and tools)
Partnerships with the National Archives may also be possible in future.
Interesting content discoveries and research stories are welcome also on
the Facebook group - Open Research India
https://www.facebook.com/groups/412404838856872
best wishes

Ravi, I'm sure many from the Asian communities will agree that Project
Tiger and many other projects that you led created a great impact. Thank
you much for everything you did.
See you on wiki! :)

*Hi, I am leaving the Wikimedia Foundation to pursue other ideas and
opportunities. I will be working until 15th of July 2018. During my time
here, it was my honor to work alongside many brilliant colleagues from all
the Asian Wikimedia communities, User Groups, chapters, and CIS-A2K. I am
especially proud that, in collaboration with my team and partners, I had
the opportunity to design, launch, and implement the very successful pilot
partnership called Project Tiger
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Supporting_Indian_Language_
Wikipedias_Program>.This
project and many other initiatives for the Asian region will be continued
according to our team's Annual plan. Please contact
Thanks, Ravi*
