Dear all, Thanks for the welcome. Probably, most of you know me more from on-wiki than the meetups (where I have been terribly infrequent!). Have been busy on Saturdays with work and have not been able to come for the meetups.
Anyways, just to introduce myself, a bit more formally - Am a doctor specialized in public health, doing my PhD right now. I am based in Bangalore and Tumkur. Most of my wikipedia contributions were through dial-up connections when I was working BR Hills - wikipedia and birds being my only two driving forces! Have been on the english wikipedia sometime since 2004 although, I got myself a username only in 2005. I mainly work on content contributions on the english wikipedia and images (rarely maps) on commons. I also hold informal wiki-classes in schools and would be glad to help anybody on that on weekends. Am glad to help out as a moderetor. Naturally, I have a lot of biases which I declare on my user page as well as my website. I will of course strive to not allow them to colour my role here, just as I have not allowed them to colour my enwiki contributions. And, no offense taken, Sundar on the overlordship, considering that I am not planning to take over the world!<http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/i-for-one-welcome-our-new-x-overlords> (nice link that describes the phrase) Regards, Prashanth N S Faculty, Institute of Public Health, Bangalore PhD Student, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp Asst.
