No #Wikisource in #Hindi

"There is no Hindi Wikisource" I was told. "How is that possible?" It may seem strange now but the way new Wikis were created in the past was not the same. When a new language was added, all the possible Wikis were created at the same time. Nowadays there is a policy for the creation of new Wikis and it means that among other things, the localisation of MediaWiki for Hindi has to be improved quite a lot.

Not having a Hindi Wikisource is strange, it would be appropriate for the Hindi community to step up to the plate. There is plenty of Hindi material that can find its way to Wikisource.
