Top 150 Wikipedia articles read in India between May 1st 2018 and March 31st 2019 ranked by pageviews in English, Hindi, Bengali and Punjabi. The views should be by Users rather than bots or spiders.
Why it's requested:
The New Readers team is working on growing retention in emerging markets. One of the ways is through product experimentation. The first set of experiments are planned to run in India.
We have chosen to curate a list of articles for prototypes that are designed to engage new and existing users in India. The tools I have used are able to show article pageviews by language/by project; rather than by country. Where country data is available, it is in in aggregate form. A list of top articles and their pageviews would help inform what types of articles we can prioritize to show our readers in the prototypes.
