Yash in 2015.jpg
Heyo! That's correct, it's Yash!
...with a human skull model made out of POP.

About me Heyo, I am Yash! Nice to meet you! I live in Ahmedabad where I am in my second year of M.B.B.S. at the AMC MET Medical College. I have also spent some time at the Netherlands for a research fellowship at the University Medical Center Groningen. Ever since my school days, at the Hebron High School, science has fascinated me. I am very passionate for medical research and that is something I intend to pursue as a career. Though I am in the field of medicine, my heart lies with astronomy. I am an amateur astronomer and looking at the stars at the night is something that I enjoy more than anything. Birdwatching was the first hobby that I ever developed and I still get hooked whenever I watch those lovely creatures around me. I am a pretty good badminton player and an ex-state level boxer as well.

I started editing Wikipedia when I was in secondary school and the experience has certainly helped me improve my academic skills. While I don't get as much time as I would like, I manage to make time and visit the site everyday. Most of my time on Wikipedia is now spent on reading articles and various discussions here and there. And when I edit, I stroll around NewPages, AfD, AfC, GAN, PendingChanges and patrol a huge number of articles through my watchlist. Due to the limited amount of time, I am not able to work on as many articles as I did back then. However, I always have some articles that I am working on for a future GAN and DYK, which is my favourite activity on this site. Wikipedia has become an integral part of my everyday routine and editing here is something that gives me pure joy. Thank you for your time and happy editing!

Previously known as TheSpecialUser (TSU), I am a cleanstart of Yasht101 and it was attempted due to personal reasons. If you have any questions regarding this, feel free to mail me.

Some good work

Thank for offering to facilitate the Editor of the Week Award. Neither Kevin nor I could have hand-picked a better replacement. Your past nominations and participations in the project were always well though-out and purposeful. If you should need a hand with any small matter, you just need to ask. I'll be glad to assist or offer advice. Staying on top of and ahead of things is my best advice. Every now and then I'll probably find someone to nominate as I wander around Wiki-World. Isaacl has been very helpful from the very beginning....one of his membership caps is the project historian...he seems to remember everything...the who, why, and what of stuff. Good Luck, my friend.

Missing you

Since I started editing, there were few editors who unfortunately, due to some reasons, became inactive or retired. Their presence will always be missed. Here is a list of those wonderful editors who I wish, could come back:
