About me Heyo! My name is, wait, how did you know? You got it right, it's Yash! I live in Ahmedabad and I am doing my first year of M.B.B.S from AMC MET Medical College. I started editing this website when I was finishing my 10th standard. What started as a way to pass time, has become more than just a hobby; it is one of the better things I have done and, somehow it gives me pure joy. I do have a life in the real world; things that I love other than Wikipedia are India, Green Day, Blink-182, Coldplay, Eminem, Messi, Curry, Rossi, UEFA, La Liga, NBA, UFC, Moto GP, IPL, A Beautiful Mind, 127 Hours, Star Wars, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Middle-earth, Harry Potter, science-fiction, animated movies, Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, House M.D., Sherlock, Impractical Jokers, comics, animes, novels, penguins, snakes, Harley Davidsons, Rolls Royce, medicine, physics and, more than anything, food! My hobbies are stamp collection, bird watching, travelling, long drives, research, puzzles, sleeping, movies, T.V., and, most importantly, food! Ping me if you ever visit my city and want to meet me for some food! Thanks for reading, food! byeo!

Previously known as TheSpecialUser (TSU), I'm a cleanstart of Yasht101 and it was attempted due to few personal issues. If anyone needs any clarification about it, please mail me.

Some good work

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:
