What is Wikipedia :
Wikipedia is a free internet based encyclopedia. Let me tell you that Encyclopedia is a reference work which provides knowledge of all branches and also provides knowledge of a particular area. In this way, only that which is filled with knowledge of the whole world is called Encyclopedia.
If you look at the Wikipedia logo properly, it is an unfinished globe in which letters of different languages are written in different pieces. This can be understood from the logo of Wikipedia itself, i.e. an encyclopedia in which knowledge about almost everything is available in different languages, is known as Wikipedia on the Internet.
