Wishes[edit]

  1. Great to see this very welcome event.. For the last few years I have been seeing only the Bangladesh chapter active and really wondered if only they cared for their mother tongue or their wikipedia... So here we are- no longer at the back.. I am proud of you guys.. Keep up the good work. I am in the US and in the middle of a professional rush hour.. But I would be very eager to know how it goes.. My very best wishes. --Dr.saptarshi (talk) 19:46, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
