Lilavati's Daughters, an update

Last year there was an edi-a-thon about female scientists of India. To give it a focus, the fine ladies described in the book Lilavati's Daughters were the shared target. This year there is another edi-a-thon but it is interesting to see how things have progressed from last year.

In the screen shot you can see that some of the subjects of the book show in Hindi. Others like Anna Mani still show in English. When your language is Hindi, it takes you two clicks to add a label in Hindi. When your language is Gujarati it takes two clicks as well.

It is really nice that thanks to the Reasonator Wikidata becomes useful as a tool for Wikimedia projects.
