I possess more than 10+ years of experience in working with the FOSS community of localization and four years experience of journalism. I am the founder of award winning FUEL Project and I have been managing the global community project on standard linguistic resources since the past 6 years. I am founder of Bhasha Ghar also that works for less resourced Locales. I am currently a Team Leader and Senior Technical Translator / Language Maintainer, Hindi at Red Hat since more than 10 years. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma (Two Years) in Translation Studies and also Postgraduate Diploma in Hindi Journalism (One Year). I have filed Two US Patents and authored a book including several technical and non technical documents.

I am a FOSS enthusiast – social entrepreneur who loves to work as a catalyst in the FOSS world. I love the word ‘community‘, and I strongly feel that ‘collaboration’ is the key to progress – both on an individual and organizational level. I respect voluntarism. I am associated with multiple FOSS projects and my contribution is largely related to language computing. I am also a trained journalist. I specialize in building and working with the high performance community of GILT industry. I am a life member of a prestigious organization – the Linguistic Society of India. I believe that knowledge sharing should be a social responsibility for every human being and this is the only way that we can take the human civilization to its zenith.
