I noticed you reverting vandalism on an article in my watchlist, and I was curious about your beautiful username which led me to click my way to your talk page. Thanks for your edits. Pine✉ 07:57, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Something About Myself
As a person who has been benefited greatly in their life by Wikipedia, I took out this journey to also contribute to this wonderful site by whatever means I can manage. I generally contribute in diverse ways: creating new articles, expanding small ones, cleaning vandalism, maintaining standard quality for articles so that Wikipedia is not reduced to a ridiculous site. In doing the latter one, I had to, and still, encounter much challenges. I was accused of vandalism (!) and so by amateur users. I was reported to ANI and AN3. I was personally attacked in severe terms. By God's grace, however, it has had little effect on my determination.
A sharp change in my mentality came after listening to the lectures of Maulana Tariq Jameel which made me more generous, more liberal, more tolerable, and more philanthropic. I've learnt that I have to respect every individual irrespective of their caste, creed, and color. Currently, I'm not so active on Wikipedia. Still, I try to stay in touch...
