  • I'm primarily associated with Assamese wikipedia, Assamese wikisource and commons. I've also contributed towards interface translation.
I've been a contributor for Aswikipedia for 8 and half years and currently serving as a sysop. I've done about 9000 edits in this project and helped organizing the first wiki meetup for Assamese wikipedia in 2012. Contributed to Wiki Loves Women India 2019 article writing contest.
  • I've done more than 7000 edits in Aswikisource and helped bring the project from incubator in 2013. I coordinated with CIS in organizing then first Assamese wikisource meet/workshop in May this year.
  • I've uploaded hundreds of images and books to commons which are being used in wikipedia and wikisource projects.

  11. Symbol strong support vote.svg Strong support-- I came to know abt him in Wiki loves Women project. IMO, the reason behind this application is much more for reaching wikipedians residing in remote places than individual use and we hv to give more support to the editors/ leaders from community like Assamese and Santhali.-- Sumita Roy Dutta (talk) 07:04, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
