[Wikimedia-l] User:Bhadani has passed

Md. Ibrahim Husain
Our fellow Wikipedian Gangadhar Bhadani has passed away 8th February 2018.
He was one of the active Indian Wikipedians on English passionately
contributing since 2005.
May his soul rest in peace.

Gangadhar was a super-active, dedicated English Wikipedian.  He was also a
mentor to several other Wikipedians.  He will be missed.

It may interest some of you to know he published an autobiography last
year, titled "Choice in Chaos: A Wikipedian's Autobiography"[1].  (I
haven't read it myself yet.)

I am sad to know this news about User:Bhadani's demise.

I knew him as a very wise person with an open mind.

That he chose to write his autobiography as a Wikipedian shows how much he
valued the movement.

My heartfelt condolences to his family.

Ravi

Thank you for this information.

I did some research on Gangadhar and learned that he made over 200,000
edits to English Wikipedia.

An interview of him was published here:
https://webtour.wordpress.com/2007/06/20/interview-with-mrgangadhar-bhadani-indias-most-prolific-wikipedian-part-1/

People who wish to do so may leave notes on his talk page:
