A long time Wikipedian from Bangalore, Karnataka, India.
I’ve been editing on the English version of Wikipedia from 6 September 2004. You’ll find me more active on Kannada Wikipedia. I’m a sysop on both Kannada Wikipedia and Sanskrit Wikipedia. I was on the Wikimedia Chapters Committee for a while. On English Wikipedia, my primary interests are Kannada and Kannada related stuff, but sometimes rarely, deviating to other but related topics.

I am one of the founding members of the Wikimedia India Chapter. I have also contributed by organising various Wikimedia outreach events in India.

More about me on my Home Page. My profile is here.

Interests: Chess, Table Tennis, (ardent follower of) Cricket, Indian Classical Music, Kannada Language, GNU/Linux, Web Development, Cartoons, Cartooning, Photography and Journalism.

Apart from my involvement with Kannada Wikipedia, I have also founded Sampada - an online community started in 2005 devoted to Kannada literature, people.

My user name is either HPN or HPNadig on Wiki projects.
