Dear Wikimedians and friends,

As some of you might already know that I have left from my position of Community Advocate at the Centre for Internet and Society. My last working month with CIS was June 2019. I am taking a breaking from professional work to focus on my higher studies. I joined CIS-A2K when I was on my first year of the college and now I have recently graduated as a Mechanical engineer :D 

My journey with the CIS-A2K in the last 3 and half years were great, I had opportunity to work closely with Odia and Santali community, and also had opportunities to collaborate with many Indic Wikimedians on different projects. I also got to meet many of you during various national and international conferences.

I would like to thank everyone in the movement for all their support and love they have given to me, especially to my team at the CIS-A2K and the Odia Wikimedia community. I worked under both Tanveer and Tito, they were always supportive and have had encouraged me to work on different projects and collaborations, from working with media houses, educational institutions, Government of Odisha, UNESCO and others.

I will be still within the Wikimedia movement wearing different hats. This is my personal email address, feel free to reach out to me anytime over here or on social media channels. 

Dhanyabaad! :)
