Proposed Participation[edit]

I am an active Wikimedian. Actively working several Wikimedia projects, including few Indic language Wikimedia projects (i.e. Bengali Wikipedia, and Wiktionary). I did not submit a presentation of my own but being an experienced Bengali Wikipedia contributor and off-line wiki campaigner (as a member of Wikimedia Bangladesh) I can work on two Bengali Wikipedia related sessions (1 and 2), as well as I can introduce Bengali Wikipedia in State of Indic Wikiprojects session.

Goal and Expected Impact[edit]

With presentation, I will try to introduce Bengali Wikipedia as better I can. As well as I will note the reasons which seems as obstacles to this project and also for other Bengali language projects. I am a founding member of newly established chapter Wikimedia Bangladesh, therefore I would like to meet people from other countries and chapters to gather experience on how they organize Wikimedia events and promote Wikimedia in their regions. That will help us to have an idea about arranging Wikimedia events in Bangladesh.
