Anirvan Shukla
Anirvan Shukla writes Wikipedia articles about military defense and space technology. On English Wikipedia, he has more than 11,000 edits to his credit. He first edited Wikipedia when he corrected a minor error on the article about Sukhoi Su-30MKI. Initially, he found the interface difficult. But he picked up wiki markup quite quickly and became a regular contributor. He has created 11 new articles, 3 good articles and 5 DYKs so far. He is mainly interested in updating old articles, copy-editing and fighting vandalism. He also uploads photographs to Wikimedia Commons. He is a member of several Wikiprojects, including WP: Physics and WP: Military History. Anirvan has a masters degree in physics from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. He is interested in pursuing a Ph.D in theoretical physics. He believes that everyone should contribute to Wikipedia. "Correct a spelling mistake here or there; been on a trip to an exotic location or clicked an image from that latest high-def camera? Upload a few of those on Commons! Every little bit is useful", he adds.
