  • Narrate your plan in details:

I'm writing articles on Odia Wikipedia every day since 2017. Before that, I was writing but used to skip one or some days while writing. But 100wikidays helped me to keep the continuity. For these 100 days, I committed to myself for writing articles every day, as a result, this became a routine in my daily life.

In 2017, during the 1st round of my 100wikidays, there was communal violence in our area and the internet was down in our area for 48 hours and I use to borrow a bike and go to the next district network area to write the article for that day. 100 days chain didn't break for that commitment.

But after completion of my 1st 100wikidays, I took a break for 28 days, and believe me in those days I did some edits but couldn't write at least one article. Then again I've started this 100 days commitment and it's still continuing from that day. Now, my work style changed, I'm doing lots of works but I have to find out at least 30 minutes to write an article.

We people are working with deadlines and with certain commitments, without which we couldn't succeed in life and these 100wikidays is like that. During this session, I would present my personal growth rate due to this 100wikidays.

  • Any support you need:

I don't have any idea how to get the growth rate of my username. If you could help me to get that graph, it could be easier for me.

  • How will this session be beneficial for the communities in India?:

This session may help others to participate in 100wikidays to write articles every day as a result more number of articles would create on our local language Wikipedia.
