New Found Love

I remember when I was in 8th standard, one day I was talking to my friend named Kabir who was very knowledgeable about the countries of the world. I wondered how he knew so much and I found out that he reads about them from some encyclopedia (it used to be spelt 'encyclopaedia' then, but I guess times change and so do spellings). I was also very excited about it and as a childhood wish declared: "When I grow up, I want to write an encyclopedia". He started laughing and told me that writing encyclopedia is not a piece of cake and one man can't do it alone (as if I didn't knew it then). I didn't say then, but decided that I will be a part of one someday. Two weeks back, I started my journey when I edited my first article on IIT Kharagpur on Wikipedia. I waited till now because I was not sure whether it would survive a few days. But now as it has, I am writing about it.

By the way, if you are interested, you can check my works at my homepage. I have even got an award of being an 'exceptional newcomer'.

Nah buddy. Both spellings exists. I am sure I need not tell you one is the American form.
