Support type

  • Laptop
  • Scanner if possible



I chiefly contribute from my mobile phone. Alternatively I contribute from the common desktop computer in our hostel. I will complete my education in April 2018 and leave hostel so I will not have access to desktop computer thereafter. So if I receive the laptop, it will be great help. It will help me to continue my editing and other activities. The laptop would make my editing activity easy and fast and will help me contribute more.

There is a lack of Gujarati language resources on internet. I am planning to start a resource exchange programme on Gujarati Wikipedia with the help of libraries. That is why I have also asked for scanner if possible. The scanner will help in scanning relevant pages from books for purpose of resource exchange with other editors and fulfill their needs. I have already uploaded photos of several authors. I contact them and have their physical photos scanned in cyber cafe. I upload them and tell them to send relevant OTRS permission. So the scanner will be great help there too. I want to upload copyright expired Gujarati books to Commons for Gujarati Wikisource but lack of scanner is chief issue. I have access to libraries and institutes promoting Gujarati language and literature. So I have requested scanner along with laptop to boost my overall activities across several projects of Wikimedia.

Future activities


I am already active in resource exchange page on English Wikipedia and going to start it on Gujarati Wikipedia. I am going to be more active on Gujarati Wikipedia to fill the gaps specifically in educational topics such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Western Literature and theories, Philosophy, Psychology and Sociology. I consider that availability of articles on these subjects will be very helpful to students and other people alike. I will be actively involving Gujarati literary institutes and community with Wikimedia projects through its exposure and introduction to them. I am also looking forward to introduce Wikipedia editing to more people especially college students.
