Academics: Masters in Mathematics and Computer Science. Inspired by philosophy of open source software, warmth, mentorship, friendship and collaborative effects of open source communities.

Primary Activities

I teach Computer Science to undergraduate students in IGNOU and run an institution for teaching Mathematics and Computer Science to high school and under graduate students. There are several aid-centers managed by an organisation headed by me in which poor and needy students are provided educational support free or with nominal charges. Besides I also work to provide livelihood opportunities to students belonging to financially weaker sections so that they may support their families and their own academic needs.

Activities so far for promoting Fedora

Advocated the use of Fedora among my students and fellow learners. Organised workshops in my institution about the use of Fedora and other open source software. Downloaded and distributed posters and other materials in support of Fedora. Distributed more than 500 copies of Fedora OS so far and helped in installation and support of Fedora OS.

I teach Python and Linux (Fedora) to school and college students. I am also involved with Quality Assurance and Documentation of Fedora Project.
