Satpal Singh is a wikimedian who largely edits on Punjabi Wikimedia
projects with the user name Sony dandiwal. He has started editing since
July 2015 at the age of 16 and is the second youngest pubjabi wikimedian.
He has more than 8,000 edit counts on punjabi wikipedia and he also holds
the rights of administrator, patroller and autopatroller on the punjabi
wikipedia. His main areas of interest on wikipedia are cricket in sports,
history in academics and biographies as inspiration.

Satpal belongs to a village Chotian in Mansa district of Punjab and edits
on wikipedia through his mobile phone, having no access to a personal
computer. Besides that, Satpal has made significant achievements, being
ranked first on Article Improvement Edit-a-thon 2016
