Please nominate Wikimedians contributing to Indian language projects here. We would like to feature as many Wikimedians from all the languages and regions. Once we get nominations and no reasonable objections for them, we will proceed to contact the Wikimedians and get the content for Featured Wikimedian section in home page. This effort is intended to recognize existing editors and thereby motivating more such editors to enrol. So, in that spirit, lengthy discussions on how exactly one becomes qualified to become a featured Wikimedian can be avoided :) If some one has more than 6 months of continuous activity with 1000+ edits and has been noted by his or her peers, that is a good benchmark to recognize him or her.
You may follow the format below to nominate.

In two years ago, we introduced him the commons. Since then, he has uploaded 8,376 photos of rare plants in commons with details. He promotes science via his free ebooks in tamil and in printed books. He deserves to be noticed for his continuous contributions for commons.
