The #Odiya #Wikipedia has 1000 articles

It is a happy occasion when one of our older wikis finally has 1000 articles. It is a happy occasion because the Odiya language is one of the fifty biggest languages of the world. It is a story that is developing happily because it coincides with a growth in community and a continuing effort for its localisation.

There was a rally to write articles, real articles, good articles. Articles that are no stub. The rally succeeded in producing 230 articles in eight days.

It is quite astonishing to think that a fifth event is in the planning and a third workshop. With so much potential and with such dedication, it will not take as long to reach the 10.000 articles mark as it did for the or.wikipedia.org to reach their 100th milestone.
Thanks,
