Title: What happened to Fiji-Hindi Community?
I am an electronics engineer from India. I mostly edit on my home Wiki Hindi Wikipedia, Commons (Contributions), and Wikidata. I am Vice-Chair and Treasurer of the Affiliations Committee, Vice-Chair Commons Photographers User Group founder member of the Hindi Wikimedians User Group, and Ex-EC member of the Wikimedia India chapter. Developing new electronic gadgets, photography, interacting with people, learning new things, listening to Indian classical music, and watching plays are my hobbies. My work I am contributing to Wikipedia and its sister projects for more than 9 years. After attending WikiConference India 2016, and TTT2017, I felt there is a lot of work to do in the field of awareness of Wikipedia among societies and outreach activities so, so other than online editing I am more involved in organizing conferences, meetups, GLAM, online photography competitions like Wiki Love Monuments, Wikipedia Asian Month, etc.

Abstract & description[edit source]
During my research for Movement Charter Community Consultations for the Fiji Hindi Speaking Community consultation, I found to my surprise that why this community is having very low activity for the last 10 years for that I am proposing a lightning talk on that to find out the reasons.
During my research for Movement Charter Community Consultations for the Fiji Hindi Speaking Community consultation, I found to my surprise that why this community is having very low activity for the last 10 years. I also noticed that the key community members also stopped or very less contributing for a very long (way back before Covid 19 pandemic) time. I am also trying to find that if this community was cut off from the main Wikimovement because lack of equity and inclusion in knowledge and resource sharing. of were there any community health issues? I am sure there are similar communities (also in ESEAP) that have faced or still facing similar issues let’s find out the reasons.
