  2. Promote and conduct Wiki Academys Wikipedia Academy India 2010 ,Bangalore1
  3. As we all know India is a young country and some social networking sites are very popular in Indian youngsters.(Orkut, Facebook, ibibo) We need to promote Wikipedia on these sites as the ocean of knowledge.
  4. Internet is getting a big popularity in Indian market and most of the Indian are using electronic mails we need to promote wikipedia on such mailing sites too.
  5. Movies and novels are very popular in india we need some promotion on that front too.
  6. we can organize some yearly quiz contest of national level (for India) with some scholarship amount in the Indian schools and colleges.
  7. We can also start some informal comic strips in Indian national newspapers (as newspapers are very popular in Indian households, parents will definitely support this cause).
