Anant Rathod with User Name: Gazal world is an editor on Gujrati and English Wikimedia Projects. He was introduced to Wikimedia by his friend and an active editor on English Wikipedia User: Nizil Shah who helped him by providing step-by-step guidance on Wikimedia editing. Anant's favourite area of editing has been writing about Indian literature on English Wikipedia and vice-versa for Gujarati Wikipedia.

On four different occasions, his work has been featured under Did You Know section on English Wikipedia. Anant's good quality contributions have helped him attain access rich scholarly and archive content like JSTOR, Oxford, Project MUSE, EPW, EBSCO, Edinburgh University Press, De Gruyter and Questia. Anant believes that pay-wall resources restrict a volunteer on improving quality content on Wikipedia. To overcome this, he has been working as a tireless volunteer on the resource desk on English Wikipedia and has helped in providing more than five hundred reference material to the volunteers. The most encouraging practice in this exercise has been visiting the physical library - Gujarat Vidyapith Library where he gets the books physically scanned and provides it to the needful.

Anant is associated with several literary associations and has also participated as a poet for Sahitya Akademi, New Delhi. Being a student of Chemistry, he stays in Ahmedabad in Gujarat.
