Hi Bodhisattwa,

The hyperlinks have been clubbed for the same video. Please share them

Not sure which video I was referring.

Hi Bodhisattwa,
I saw these videos last evening, they are actually very nicely done.
I have a very minor concern which I have also posted under the comments
section and reached out to you last evening.
In ‘What just happened’ video, can we drop ’whatsapp’ placed just ahead of
fake news. If possible dubb it to online fake news or simply mute it.
I am not a lawyer and not sure on legal issues. Someone can better reflect
on the matter of taking names of Internet organisation outside our
When Hindi promotional video was made by WMF, The Hindi community members
on the table made a common consensus on not taking names.
Again, it could be a very minor issue and may not hold much relevance.
