About me

Hi, my name is Mourya Biswas (Bengali: মৌর্য্য বিশ্বাস), and I use this username in all of Wikimedia projects. I joined the World's Largest Promoter of Free Knowledge when I was barely seventeen years of age with initial edits made on English Wikipedia where I still edit. Later on I moved to editing articles, creating new articles and developing new templates on [Bengali Wikipedia; which at the moment happens to be my home-wiki. Apart from my contributions online I am also active in conducting Offline Wikipedia programs and activities. I hosted my first Bengali Wikipedia Meetup on the 11th of June, 2016 at Kolkata. I have also been volunteering in a handful of events organised by Wikimedia Foundation's India Chapter such as the Wiki Loves Earth 2016 contest in India and also acted as Language-coordinator for Bengali in various Online Wikipedia Editathons. Besides Bengali Wikipedia I also contribute to English, Telugu and Hindi language(minorly) Wikipedias as I have a near-complete understanding of these languages and I am also active on several other sister projects of Wikimedia such as Commons, Wikidata, Wiktionary. You are welcome to view my contributions on Wikimedia projects here at CentralAuth.

I hail from Kolkata, West Bengal, India and currently reside in Chennai, where I'm a second-year undergraduate student of Electronics and Communication Engineering at SRM University.

In the Contact me section there are some means by which I hope you'll be able to effectively communicate with me.
