Wow, 4 100wikidays challenges is amazing. Kudos to Wikipedian Sangram. Keep
going, you are quite an inspiration.
And thanks to Subashish and User MKar for support and guidance during
Santa's formative years. Clearly it has made a difference.

I am happy to introduce you to the Featured Wikimediam for April
2018, Sangram Keshari Senapati (User:Ssgapu22
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralAuth/Ssgapu22>) from Odia
Sangram is an active Odia Wikimedian from Bhadrk, Odisha. Sangram was
introduced to Wikipedia by his senior at college. He later signed up, and
created two articles on English Wikipedia. Upon knowing about Odia
Wikipedia, he started contributing to it. But as his writing skills were
not good, he used to proofread works on Odia Wikisource, and from that
experience he learnt the exact pattern of writing in Odia. He recalls that
users MKar and Psubhashish greatly helped him during his initial days.
From his contributions, it can be said that Sangram is an ambassador of
#100Wikidays challenge. After having participated in Rathajatra
Edit-a-thon, Nabakalebara Edit-a-thon, and Wikipedia Asian Month in 2016 &
2017, he decided to regularly commit himself towards improving the coverage
of information on Odia Wikipedia. His first challenge was
he started on 8 March 2017 i.e. International Women's Day. Having
successfully completed it on 15 June, he took up another #100Wikidays
on 13 July. Immediately after its completion 20 October, he took up his
on 21 October, and completed it on 28 January 2018. As this journey
continues, he is now amid of his fourth Challenge
which was started on 29 January. With these, he aspires to complete his
WikiYear some day.
Sangram is a graduate in Computer Science and Engineering, and is now
working as an editor at an Odia magazine. He also an avid photographer, and
maintains a photography club. He advocates that new editors need to focus
on learning the rules of Wikipedia, and contribute to good quality articles.
Wishing him all the best to to complete his WikiYear;
Krishna Chaitanya Velaga
