“Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from the praise of men but from doing something worthwhile. - Wilfred T. Grenfell”
Hi! This is Tanweer, an architect based in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh - a country in South Asia - nestled by the Bay of Bengal in the south and Himalaya in the north. I studied architecture at Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology. My hometown is Rangpur, a city in northern Bangladesh, Earth, Solar System, Local Fluff, Local Bubble, Gould Belt, Orion Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Milky Way Subgroup, Local Group, Virgo Supercluster, Local Filament, Universe.
I discovered Wikipedia in early 2007 but started contributing in May 2009. Since then, I've been an active editor in multiple Wikimedia projects, but predominantly in the Bangla Wikipedia. With a view to expanding the Wikimedia movement in my home country, I - along with several other Wikimedians - co-founded the chapter Wikimedia Bangladesh. Over the years, I have led and co-organized numerous programs and events to disseminate the Wikimedia projects in an effort to expand the encyclopedic presence of Bangla language. I am or have been in the following positions in the broader Wikimedia movement:
- Administrator, Bangla Wikipedia (January, 2015 - present)
- Treasurer, Wikimedia Bangladesh (January, 2016 - present)
- Member of the Programme Team, Wikimedia Conference 2015
- Member, Affiliations Committee (January, 2016 - present)
