“The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder.” - Ralph W. Sockman

Knowledge is a key to success. When one has knowledge of a thing they can make the right decision easily. And knowledge is only one treasure that increases by sharing. We all need a source from where we can get all kinds of knowledge. An open knowledge source is like the light of many people’s lives.

It was a long standing demand to have an independent platform like Wikipedia and it seems to have reached at the end with a site called Bharatpedia a free, online encyclopedia written and maintained by a community of volunteer contributors through a model of open collaboration, using a wiki-based editing system.

The site was launched with a mission to re-establish the nation as Vishwaguru. The government of India also supports this process. For this, more pressure is being laid on self-help and indigenous products and services. These efforts and demand for Indian Wikipedia is the way it becomes established.

It is the first free Indian encyclopedia.
