The West Bengal Wikimedians User Group organized a 3-months long proofreading contest on Bengali Wikisource from 9 May 2021 to 8 August 2021 remembering the occasion of the birth and death anniversary of Nobel laureate author Rabindranath Tagore. This was the third iteration of the event which had been organized for the last two consecutive years by the user group. This year, 52 books written by Tagore were selected for the participants to proofread including 4 books donated by the Two Centuries of Indian Print (2CIP) project of British Library for this competition. More than 6000 pages were proofread at the end of the competition by 22 participants. Currently, the necessary information from the top 5 contributors are being collected so that the user group can send them the prizes as soon as possible.
