I am really glad that I had the pleasure of meeting Sangappa at this year's
Train the Trainer program. He is a really motivating Wikimedian.

Greetings,

I am happy to introduce User:Sangappadyamani
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralAuth/Sangappadyamani> from
the Kannada community as the Featured Wikimedian of the Month for February
2018.

Sangappa is an inspiring Kannada Wikipedian both in spirit and at work. He
is from Kalaburagi (previously Gulbarga), Sangappa works for private firm
in Bengaluru. He started contributing to English Wikipedia in 2012, when he
found that there is no article on his native place. Even though it was
deleted due some issues, Sangappa not being discouraged, went through all
the relevant guidelines, and created nineteen articles related to Karnataka.

Having made his first edit on Kannada Wikipedia in 2016, he has been very
active ever since, and created around 170 articles, with more than ten
thousand global edits. The fascinating part of Sangappa's contributions is
linked with the Google Doodle section on Kannada Wikipedia Main Page. Every
day, the subjects that are honoured by Google by featured them as their
Doodle, are created/improved by Sangappa within a few hours of its updation
at 00:00 hrs everyday. He says that in this way, he ensures that all the
popular topics of India are well represented on Kannada Wikipedia.

Sangappa makes most of his edits through mobile, or from his friend's
laptop. He also puts the wait during traffic jams from his home to office,
and vice versa, to the best use, by making edits on Wikipedia during that
period.

Regards,
Krishna Chaitanya Velaga
