Greetings everyone,

I am happy to inform that User:Swapnil.Karambelkar from Hindi Wikimedia
community is the Featured Wikimedian of the Month for September 2017.


Swapnil hails from Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, and by profession a Mechanical
Engineering, who runs his own firm based on factory automation and
education. Swapnil joined Wikipedia in August 2016, through "Wiki Loves
Monuments". He initially started off with uploading images to Commons and
then moved onto Hindi Wikipedia, contributing to culture and military
topics. He also contributes to Hindi Wikibooks and Wikiversity.

Soon after, he got extensively involved in various outreach activities. He
co-organized "Hindi Wiki Conference" in January 2017, at Bhopal. He
delivered various lectures on Wikimedia movement in various institutions
like Atal Bihari Hindi University, Sanskrit Sansthanam and NIT Bhopal.
Along with Suyash Dwivedi, Swapnil co-organized the first ever regular GLAM
project in India at National Museum of Natural Heritage, Bhopal. Swapnil is
an account creator on Hindi Wikipedia and is an admin on the beta version
on Wikiversity. Swapnil has been instrumental in establishing the first
Indic language version of Wikiversity, the Hindi Wikiversity.

As asked regarding his motivation to contribute to the Wikimedia movement,
Swapnil says, "It is the realization that though there is abundance of
knowledge around us, but it is yet untapped and not documented".
