WikiDays[edit | edit source]

I got actively engaged with Wikipedia and the movement since Wiki Conference India 2011. My submission (on Expanding Bengali Wikipedia) for presenting in the conference was selected as a Talk, and I got an opportunity to present my ideas in front of a thousand awesome people!

Moreover, I was a speaker at the Panel Discussion on Gender Gap:"Where are the Women?" moderated by Bishakha Datta, at Wiki Conference 2011.

I love to excite people about Wikipedia, its beauty and the charm. Writing code for a wonderful cause, attending the monthly meetups, the summits and the work-days, and being surrounded by amazingly passionate Wikimedians -- I am blessed! :)


Best ever contribution to Wikipedia[edit | edit source]

I have taught my 65-year old Great aunt to edit Wikipedia. Yes, I do consider it to be my Best Ever Contribution to Wikipedia. :) You can read about the experience in Wikimedia Blog. It was such pleasure writing for them! :)
