Jay Prakash at WikiBoot camp, 2018

I am an open-source software enthusiastic and MediaWiki developer, lives in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh, India. I joined the Wikimedia community from English Wikipedia in 2015. Then, I moved to my native Hindi Wikipedia. I am a fan of Space technologies. I created many space articles on Hindi Wikipedia. But later, I got interest in the Wikimedia tech community. Since 2017, I am working actively as a technical contributor for Indic languages in the Wikimedia tech community. Apart from technical contribution, I take MediaWiki technical training and, take part in strategy to improve Wikimedia movement.

Outside Wikimedia, I am pursuing Bachelor in Computer Science and Engineering at Bharat Institute of Technology, Meerut. I am also a Google Developer Student Club Lead for my campus. I mainly have two hobbies. Firstly programming, in which I spend most of the time on web development. Secondly, I read tech articles and security loopholes related to web development. I love to watch thrillers, spies, and red bull's “Peoples are Awesome” video series.

Do you have suggestions for any good thriller movies from your region? Feel free to suggest me on my talk page.

Maa Saraswati

हे हंसवाहिनी ज्ञानदायिनी
अम्ब विमल मति दे। अम्ब विमल मति दे॥

जग सिरमौर बनाएं भारत,
वह बल विक्रम दे। वह बल विक्रम दे॥

हे हंसवाहिनी ज्ञानदायिनी
अम्ब विमल मति दे। अम्ब विमल मति दे॥

साहस शील हृदय में भर दे,
जीवन त्याग-तपोमर कर दे,
संयम सत्य स्नेह का वर दे,
स्वाभिमान भर दे। स्वाभिमान भर दे॥1॥

हे हंसवाहिनी ज्ञानदायिनी
अम्ब विमल मति दे। अम्ब विमल मति दे॥

लव, कुश, ध्रुव, प्रहलाद बनें हम
मानवता का त्रास हरें हम,
सीता, सावित्री, दुर्गा मां,
फिर घर-घर भर दे। फिर घर-घर भर दे॥2॥

हे हंसवाहिनी ज्ञानदायिनी
अम्ब विमल मति दे। अम्ब विमल मति दे॥

या कुन्देन्दुतुषारहारधवला या शुभ्रवस्त्रावृता
या वीणावरदण्डमण्डितकरा या श्वेतपद्मासना।
या ब्रह्माच्युत शंकरप्रभृतिभिर्देवैः सदा वन्दिता
सा मां पातु सरस्वती भगवती निःशेषजाड्यापहा ॥1॥

शुक्लां ब्रह्मविचार सार परमामाद्यां जगद्व्यापिनीं
वीणा-पुस्तक-धारिणीमभयदां जाड्यान्धकारापहाम्‌।
हस्ते स्फटिकमालिकां विदधतीं पद्मासने संस्थिताम्‌
वन्दे तां परमेश्वरीं भगवतीं बुद्धिप्रदां शारदाम्‌॥2॥
