  4. Nizil Shah (talk · contribs · central auth · count · email) I am editing Wikipedia regularly for past five years. I am particularly interested in adding articles on history, people and politics of India. Wikipedia lacks coverage of topics related to India very much and the access would be helpful in filling that gap. Especially biographies. I think access to ODNB and Oxford Reference will be very helpful. So I am applying for Scholarship stream. Regards,-Nizil (talk) 04:54, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
