This editor is a Senior Editor and is entitled to display this Rhodium Editor Star.

A native of Tiruchirappalli, now a Chennaite, I started editing Wikipedia in 2008 as an anonymous user and made my first registered edit on 28 March 2010. My hobby of editing articles helped me slowly graduate to an active contributor.

As a member of WikiProject Tamil civilization, WikiProject Tamil Nadu and the Indian cinema task force, I often spend my time contributing to articles relating to South India and Indian cinema. I'm an ardent cricket fan and will be able to help with players statistics. Other topics of great interest to me are: India, Geography of India, Indian cities and Demographics of India. I also spend some time reverting disruptive edits to prevent vandalism.

My region

In the 18th century, British administrators described the rice fields of the south as the most fertile lands they ruled anywhere in the world giving three harvests a year. And they thought that the people of the southern rice fields were among the most moral and hard-working

I am the present volunteer co-ordinator for WP:INCINE. In case of any queries pertaining to the project feel free to drop me a message.

Editors like Ravichandar84, Nvvchar and MikeLynch have been a constant source of inspiration for me; I have learnt a lot from them. I also like ChrisTheDude, Harrias, Sarastro1, The Rambling Man, Tintin1107 and Bill william compton for their contributions towards sports-related articles. Having said that, I hate Dharmadhyaksha and Vivvt for their sheer stupidity.
