Abstract (please use no less than 300 words to describe your proposal)

Wikipedia has been providing knowledge in all the possible fields, providing great service to the world. But, there are some areas to improve, the area where our humane nature lies on. We are much obliged to our ancestors for giving us the life as we see today. But, in our busy schedule we don't get much time to remember them. But the Wikipedia can provide a link to interconnect the broken bonds.

The generation ahead is on its way to spend the whole day in the cloud. So it is better to put our history in the cloud. Wikipedia is best option since its open source and anyone at any corner of the world can edit the page.

We are very much aware of whats going around us, but we are less bothered about where we came from & what we are. So lets fix the bond with Wikipedia, to enlighten our tomorrow.
