Dear Netha,

Thank you for the update. Just saw on the Telugu Wikipedia village pump
that they have created 97 new articles and expanded about 50 articles.
In addition to this a small Wiki Academy was also organised on March 8 at
Golden Threshold, Hyderabad.
Nice to see active participation across the board!

Best regards,
Vishnu
