On the day a ସନ୍ତ୍ରାସବାଦୀ ଆକ୍ରମଣ ripped through the heart of my ସହର, ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ ମୋର ଜୀବନଧାରା ବଦଳାଇଦେଲା |

The 2011 bombings in ମୁମ୍ବାଇ made ଅନ୍ତର୍ଜାତୀୟ headlines, but at the moment the crisis struck, there was no straightforward information about what had happened.

I knew I couldn’t be the only one looking for ଉତ୍ତର. So I went out to take photos, uploaded a map I pasted together, and made sure the ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ article on the incident would help people make sense of the chaos.

Since then, I’ve made thousands of edits to ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ articles. My experience that day on ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ made my passion for photojournalism clear, and I’ve followed that path ever since.

I felt so grateful for ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ, and when I learned how it stays online, I donated ୨୫୦ ଟଙ୍କା to do my part. Will you make a donation to keep this valuable resource available around the world?

ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ enables us to share the world. With ୪୭୦ million different visitors every month, it’s revolutionized the way we consume and spread information – sometimes even down to the moment it happens.

And it does it all for free – with zero ads, under ୧,୦୦୦ servers and fewer than ୧୦୦ staff.

That’s amazing. Just look at Google or ଫେସବୁକ. They have hundreds of thousands of servers and tens of thousands of staff.

ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ ହେଉଛି ଇଣ୍ଟରନେଟ ଦୁନିଆର ପଞ୍ଚମ ଅଗ୍ରଣୀ ୱେବସାଇଟ । And it’s also no wonder why they need support every year from people like me and you.

ଆପଣ ୨୫୦ ଟଙ୍କା, ୫୦୦ ଟଙ୍କା, ୧୦୦୦ ଟଙ୍କା କିମ୍ବା ଯାହା ଦେଇପାରିଲା ଭଳି ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆକୁ ସୁରକ୍ଷିତ ରଖିବେ କି?
