I am from the southern part of India and started my involvement with the Wikimedia movement by editing Telugu-language Wikipedia in 2013. Right from the beginning, I am involved in improving content, working towards community growth, planning and executing projects, and movement governance. I have created 750+ new articles and substantially improved over 800+ articles in Telugu Wikipedia with over 49,000 global edits. During my early months of contribution, I participated in Telugu Wikipedia 10th anniversary which gave me insights into the community and its goals. It led me to collaborate and initiate several on-wiki and off-wiki activities. One of the notable projects is to create an on-Wiki catalogue of Telugu books present in the Digital library of India which was further used as a resource for content creation.

Later on, I joined the Centre for Internet and Society - Access to Knowledge as a community advocate for Telugu language Wikimedia projects. My key responsibilities during this period were to improve content & quality, work towards community growth, build and manage new partnerships, and build capacity in the community. My initiatives resulted in improving 25,000 stubs to start class on Telugu Wikipedia, co-organized Train-the-trainer 2019 and Wikimedia Summit India 2019. My experience also involves building and managing partnerships with education institutions and government entities. I have also been part of the Community Health Working Group in the Movement Strategy process.

I am currently working as Community Manager at Quora where I work involves building and managing Quora’s Telugu community across the world. I am the community manager for Quora in Telugu, from the beginning. I have been SPOC from its Alpha and Beta testing phase, and public launch, and working closely with product and engineering teams. To grow the project, I work on partnerships, developing & executing marketing strategies, among other things.


About my motivation and Goals

Wikimedia projects’ role in improving access and opening up knowledge spaces and impacting millions of people around the world is a constant motivation for me to contribute to the projects. The Wikimedia movement has a great potential to make a lasting impact on even more people where current government and societal structures are neglecting and keeping them away from the availability of knowledge. Current issues like harassment, less diversity, centralized power and lack of adoption to rapidly growing technological aspects are hindering the Wikimedia movement's progress in this direction. I am deeply motivated to contribute my part in participating in movement governance by serving as a board member to Wikimedia Foundation

أهم 3 أولويات للمجلس

1. Hiring and onboarding CEO: Hiring the right candidate as CEO is a priority issue to build on major initiatives and steps taken by Katherine Maher and to ensure the progress made in the last few years won’t be reverted to earlier phases of uncertainty.

2. Empowering stakeholders across the movement: Empowering Wikimedia movement entities and reducing the excessive centralisation of power all over the world is key to make leaps in the strategic direction we are committed to.

3. Improving board relations with the community: Building trust and belongingness is an important aspect of collaboration with the community. Community is the main and highly crucial stakeholder in movement and it should have more skin in the game when it comes to key decision making. The board should be easily accessible to community members through various channels.

أهم 3 أولويات لاستراتيجية الحركة 1. الاستثمار في تنمية المهارات والقيادة: دون وجود برنامج تنمية المهارات والقيادة المستدامة، سيكون هناك اختلاف بسيط فيما يحدث بالفعل في الحركة. بالإضافة إلى ذلك، نظرًا لأن المؤسسة والحركة مبنية على المساهمة الجادة من المتطوعين، فمن المفترض أن يساعد ذلك أيضًا في رد الجميل.

2. إنشاء قاعدة معرفية على مستوى الحركة: سيساعد بناء قاعدة معرفية على مستوى الحركة تكون جيدة التنظيم ومتعددة اللغات على القيادة والحوكمة في جميع أنحاء العالم. نظرًا لكوننا مصدرًا رئيسيًا للمعرفة في العالم، فمن المعيب ألا يكون لدينا مثل بنك المعرفة متعدد المستويات.

3. تحسين تجربة المستخدم: يجب أن تواكب مشاريع ويكيميديا ​​التطورات التكنولوجية الحالية التي يمكن أن تحل العديد من المشكلات التي نواجهها في المشاركة والاحتفاظ.

التنوع: نبذة ينتمي المرشح أو انتمى في السابق إلى مجموعة تعرضت طوال التاريخ للتمييز وضعف التمثيل في حسابات القوة والسلطة (أمور تتعلق على سبيل المثال بالنوع والعرق والعرقية ونوع الإعاقة وهوية مجتمع الميم والطبقة الاجتماعية والحالة الاقتصادية أو الطائفة).

Yes: I am a straight male and was born in a caste that was traditionally considered upper caste but lost its economic and political edge during the 1980s in Andhra Pradesh, India. I come from a lower-middle-class background and my father is a classic Indian middle-class employee where one member of the family earns while 9 family members need to be fed and supported with that salary. I completed all my education in rural and semi-urban places far away from India’s Top education facilities and obviously from the world’s prestigious organizations.

This background resulted in a mix of being privileged in few aspects and under-privileged in remaining.

To put it in perspective, I am the first person in my own family (even in 2-3 generations; not considering extended family who benefited by the late 2000s due to globalisation & liberalisation policies of India) to travel in a flight. It was a celebrated and cherished moment for my parents and siblings. But, noting the fact that crores of other Indians still had not yet stepped into a flight

التنوع: جغرافيًا قد يساهم المرشح في التنوع الجغرافي الإجمالي لمجلس الأمناء، استنادًا إلى المناطق الجغرافية التي قطن فيها.

Yes. I come from Andhra Pradesh state in India.

التنوع: اللغة المرشح لغته الأم هي لغة خلاف اللغة الإنكليزية.

Yes. My first language is Telugu. I was educated in English as a medium of instruction while I was always fascinated and intrigued by my first language for its rich cultural and literary aspects. The Telugu language is 11th among most spoken languages in the world and 4th in India, still, it lacks support from the government and institutions like many other native tongues in post-colonial societies. I, personally, am a victim of these policies during my education and later time. A large part of my work is motivated to understand and improve the condition of these languages and contribute to the education & knowledge equity in that respect.

التنوع: خبرة النظام السياسي مر المرشح بخبرة طويلة قطن فيها أو عمل فيها على مشاركة المعرفة في مناخ غير ديمقراطي خاضع لرقابة النظام الحكم أو نظام حكم قمعي.
