00:00:01.105,00:00:02.016 I love my students.

00:00:03.874,00:00:08.270 When I worked more than subjects, I loved my students.

00:00:09.288,00:00:11.538 My name is Balasubramanian Poongothai.

00:00:11.560,00:00:13.181 I'm coming from India.

00:00:13.721,00:00:20.791 I'm a Math teacher for 33 years and I retired from my career,

00:00:22.230,00:00:27.095 and after that, I started editing in Wikipedia.

00:00:28.500,00:00:30.641 See, I had gone through a retirement from my career,

00:00:31.135,00:00:33.954 so all the 24-hours is for me now.

00:00:34.400,00:00:39.394 My sons are grown up, and they are looking after their life.

00:00:39.841,00:00:47.791 I am freed from all the responsibility and the remaining years are completely for me,

00:00:47.841,00:00:49.341 and I am enjoying this.

00:00:49.450,00:00:59.780 When I participate in this Wikipedia, what I feel is I'm engaged, as well as... we leave something for our future generation.

00:01:00.150,00:01:07.679 Algebra, Analytical Geometry, Geometry are the topics which I am comfortable with.

00:01:08.800,00:01:10.788 First, I started with Probability.

00:01:11.450,00:01:14.169 The first article I started was Probability.

00:01:15.064,00:01:18.998 Every day I am on Wikipedia, I'm simply at home,

00:01:19.445,00:01:27.217 so I will do all my personal works, and then I will sit with my netbook and I will edit,

00:01:28.450,00:01:33.769 and I will create articles, and I will create articles on Mathematics,

00:01:34.500,00:01:40.310 and then Tamil being my mother tongue, and my favorite language,

00:01:41.000,00:01:47.940 I edit the articles created by the others for spelling mistakes and grammar.

00:01:48.800,00:01:52.060 Everyone is benefited by this whether they are rich or poor.

00:01:52.548,00:01:58.100 Here, by a mere click, the whole world is in front of us.
