Appreciate the efforts, Ananya. As said by Sanket, you
are an unsung hero,
not only of Bengali Wikipedia but a lesson to all on how innovative
projects can be initiated from India.

Greetings from Wikimedia India Chapter!
> It gives us immense pleasure to announce that the featured Wikimedian
month of September is Ananya Mondal.
Ananya Mondal, the unsung hero of Bengali Wikipedia who is often
credited as the
butterfly-wikipedian, for starting the initiative of Wiki
Loves Butterfly, the first ever project in India to take photographs of
butterflies. She started editing on July 2015 and in just 13 months she has
more than 9,051 edits globally. With special interest on topics related to
butterfly, venomous snake and biochemistry she made over 90 articles on
Bengali language Wikipedia.
She got the idea of doing Wiki Loves Butterfly, when she discovered
Commons does not have enough photographs of butterflies.
Over the course of 6 months, the project helped in getting more than 602
pictures, 53 articles on butterflies. She is now interested to work on
Wikispecies, to help there improve coverage on West Bengal associated
