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.
In the Contact me section there are some means by which I hope you'll be able to effectively communicate with me.
I have organized, conducted and lead outreach programs like Wikipedia workshops in the past.
