Hi! I'm Salman. I'm a dedicated and proud Wikipedian.

Taste & Interest[edit]

I love to stay creative. I love listening to Led Zeppelin, Kings of Leon, Steve Vai, Deep Purple, Scorpions, Dire Straits, Michael Jackson, Nadia Ali, Maroon 5 and Lady Gaga.

I'm a movie buff. I prefer watching variety of genres, mostly; Italian neorealism, Thriller, Neo-noir and Drama. My favorite movie so far is Bicycle Thieves. I prefer parallel cinema over the commercial. The thoughtful vision and the artistic ability of Satyajit Ray, Shyam Benegal in India, Vittorio De Sica in Europe and Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, Stanley Kubrick and Alfred Hitchcock in Hollywood, inspire me the most. The actors I admire most are Marlon Brando, Daniel Day-Lewis, Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi, Aamir Khan, Tom hanks, Al Pacino and Meryl Streep.

I seldom write short stories and Fiction. Salman Rushdie, Anita Desai, Arundhati Roy, Ruskin Bond, Paulo Coelho, Stephen King and Khaled Hosseini are some of my favorite authors. I consider Midnight's Children, The Kite Runner, A Flight of Pigeons, Shame and Shalimar the Clown as extraordinary fictions I've ever read. Vincent Van Gogh and Salvador dali's paintings have made an everlasting impression on me.

Insight on Wikipedia[edit]

I feel, Wikipedia is an unlimited resource, which anyone in any part of the world can relate to and for any required information on any subject. It has and will always remain a provider of free, uncensored information and guide for an intellectual development of the reader. The project Jimmy Wales started has become a Beacon of light in this dark world of Censorship, Corruption and expensive education. I'd request every user, confirmed or unconfirmed, editors or admin, to support this cause, and help to build a resourceful, clean, legitimate and insightful database of global Encyclopedia.

Things to do[edit]

Every individual user has his/her own interest of topic and editing. I, personally, look into following things for editing.

  • Expanding Stub Articles -Stub Article is neither complete nor reliable. Readers shouldn't rely on a stub article, as it is incomplete. Therefore, we as a contributor must try to expand the article, either by Extensive research or by asking for support from other editors.

More Info--> Wikipedia:Stub, Sort Stub,

  • Patrolling and Analysis -Patrolling is an usual activity for experienced contributors, as they have best idea about Wiki's guidelines and article. You can try patrolling newly created pages Newly Created Pages

More Info--> Patrolling

  • Infobox Standarization -It refers to standardizing any article with the use of relevant Infobox. Most of the older articles do have Infobox, however newer articles don't. It isn't mandatory, it is just to maintain the quality of the article and presentation.

More Info--> Infobox,, Infobox Standard

  • Providing Citation -You will find many articles with their content tagged as (abc[citation needed]), when they are challenged for their legitimacy and verifiability. In this case, you as a contributor should try to prove the legitimacy of the content with researching references, or remove the content if found unverifiable.
