Religion, a medieval form of unreason, when combined with modern weaponry becomes a real threat to our freedoms.....

I stand with Charlie Hebdo, as we all must, to defend the art of satire....

‘Respect for religion’ has become a code phrase meaning ‘fear of religion’. Religions deserve.....our fearless disrespect.

"Adults can change their circumstances; children cannot. Children are powerless, and in difficult situations they are the victims of every sorrow and mischance and rage around them, for children feel all of these things but without any of the ability that adults have to change them. Whatever can take a child beyond such circumstances, therefore, is an alleviation and a blessing." - Mary Oliver

About me

Hello World. My name is Winged Blades of Godric. (I wouldn't mind my initials or plain old Godric either!). I have been here for quite long and I (originally) belong from Kolkata, a bustling city along the bank of a sprawling river.

I am bilingual fluent in Bangla, English and Assamese and have a high degree of proficiency in Hindi, Oriya, Urdu and Marathi.

My work

Broadly, I believe that Wikipedia is changing the way we find information, the way we share information with others, the way we record history and the way we think about collaborating for the collective good. At the end of the day, we exist to serve the reader. NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. We are now the default reference work for an astounding majority of the laymen-world and are the most visited knowledge-system in the world. Every edit should, in some way, better the current quality and quantity of content.

I use to be quite involved with the new page patrol project and articles for creation project and have a fairly detailed understanding of the relevant policies, guidelines and best practices; if you are interested in being helped with publishing any form of new content, please let me know.

In terms of content creation, I typically focus on topics linked with pseudo-science and/or Indian historiography and politics. I have specific interests in the areas of subaltern studies, the growth and rise of Hindutva in India, Kashmir conflict, Islam in South Asia and any allied topics, thereof. I hate spam and promotion, of any kind and spend a lot of minutes in gutting them. I'm academically qualified to provide a third opinion on a broad spectrum of topics related to chemical engineering and molecular chemistry but seldom make any edits in the domain; my current real-life activities is related to molecular engineering. I used to have a form of economic COI with Schlumberger.

P.S.:- I can help you out in accessing any resource from the National Library of India and Centre for Studies in Social Sciences; I have proxy-access to the library platform of Indian Institute of Science. I have multiple subscriptions through the Wikipedia Library Platform, as well. If you need any resource, ask me.

The primary task of a writer is to write well. (And to go on writing well. Neither to burn out nor to sell out.) … Let the dedicated activist never overshadow the dedicated servant of literature — the matchless storyteller.Susan Sontag

Any article edited by a promotional editor should always be deleted. This is the only way to discourage people from using the WP for advertising. If the subject is actually important, someone else will create an article. Rescuing it sends the message that if your write an unacceptable article about yourself, someone will very possibly fix it for you, and therefore you might as well try to advertise here. It furthermore sends the message that if you you hire someone to write an article and they take money for doing this, and they write the usual unacceptable article such people write, then someone will fix it for you free, while the guy who wrote the bad article gets the money.

Wikipedia may be the encyclopedia anyone can edit, but that is a misleading slogan. Yes anyone may edit it, but there is a learning curve before you get to the point where you can edit it. John from Idegon
