Explain your planEdit

Tell us about how you contribute currently, and how you would contribute if WMF were to gift a used laptop to you.

I am an active contributor of Bengali and English Wikipedia. Since I am contributing Wikimedia projects currently through my old Mobile phone it is utmost necessary to have a laptop to work in Wiki projects more actively. I mainly create valuable articles in Wikipedia from more than a year. I have globally contributed over 6 projects 2957 + edits , make (enwiki 9 + bnwiki 132)=141+ articles and uploaded number of images in Wikicommons. I have also participated Bengali Wikisource 10th Anniversary Celebration and regular monthly meet up of West Bengal community. I have participated online Bengali Wikipedia articles contest 2018 and Project Tiger Editathon 2018 (Bn wiki). I am active mostly in offline activities for Bengali Wikimedians User Group.

My Mobile phone is more than 4 years old. Very often it becomes hang and slow. It is my earnest prayer to WMF to gift me a laptop, I will use it to online (Editing) and offline activities (Meetups, Conference and WEP).
