India is the world's 2nd-largest country by population, well on the way to becoming the world's most populous, and it's the world's 7th-largest country in area. India is a prime destination for both business and leisure travellers, with a vital and growing economy, a wealth of culture, history and wildlife, fantastic regional cuisines and amazing geographic diversity, and the country is an important regional power. According to Wikipedia, India has the 2nd-largest number of English speakers in the world. So our articles about Indian destinations should be a showcase.
Instead, the standard of many highly visible articles about Indian destinations is very poor, with incorrect capitalization, spacing, punctuation, grammar and usage; irregular formatting; long lists of random and useless bulleted entries (including lists of "Cities" and "Other destinations" in non-bottom-level region articles that are way longer than the Wikivoyage standard of 9) without sufficient information to be useful to a traveller; touting; and sometimes, even poor comprehensibility.
This guide provides suggestions for making your first contribution to this wiki. In general it is best to start out by contributing a listing for your favorite attraction, restaurant, or bar rather than trying to create a new article or make formatting changes to an existing article.
In this age of satellites and GPS, you no longer need to be a professional cartographer to draw an accurate map. The static map tutorial gives instructions for creating standard Wikivoyage maps using Inkscape, while dynamic maps are generated from (lat, long) co-ordinates on OpenStreetMap base maps. Complete amateurs have created some of our best maps following this guide.
