Prathamesh is an extremely active and super energetic Mozillian of the Indian community. He has successfully led several different events and shown unbelievable leadership skills. One of the most recent examples of his untiring energy was the Mozilla India Community meetup 2016. His skills at managing all the logistical work for such a huge event was a pleasant surprise for all the organizers and senior members of the community.
Prathamesh is famous of going around with a viral smile. If ever asked to do some work, he does it with a smile and also makes sure that the smile virus is perfectly passed on to you...leaving you smiling as well. Prathamesh is a strong supporter of the Open Web and believes that everyone deserves to have access to it. With this thought in mind, Prathamesh also initiated the MILE project here in the Indian community. The purpose of the MILE project is to teach the basics of web to the less fortunate section of our society.
Congratulations and thanks for all the contributions made!
