00:00:01,105 --> 00:00:02,016
I love my students.

2
00:00:03,874 --> 00:00:08,270
When I worked, more than subjects I loved my students.

3
00:00:09,288 --> 00:00:11,538
My name is Balasubramanian Poongothai.

4
00:00:11,56 --> 00:00:13,181
I'm coming from India.

5
00:00:13,721 --> 00:00:20,791
I'm a Math teacher for 33 years and I retired from my career,

6
00:00:22,23 --> 00:00:27,095
and after that, I started editing in Wikipedia. 

7
00:00:28,5 --> 00:00:30,641
See, I had gone through a retirement from my career,

8
00:00:31,135 --> 00:00:33,954
so all the 24-hours is for me now. 

9
00:00:34,4 --> 00:00:39,394
My sons are grown up, and they are looking after their life. 

10
00:00:39,841 --> 00:00:47,791
I am freed from all the responsibility and the remaining years are completely for me,

11
00:00:47,841 --> 00:00:49,341
and I am enjoying this. 

12
00:00:49,45 --> 00:00:59,78
When I participate in this Wikipedia, what I feel is I'm engaged, as well as... we leave something for our future generation.

13
00:01:00,15 --> 00:01:07,679
Algebra, Analytical Geometry, Geometry are the topics which I am comfortable with.

14
00:01:08,8 --> 00:01:10,788
First, I started with Probability. 

15
00:01:11,45 --> 00:01:14,169
The first article I started was Probability. 

16
00:01:15,064 --> 00:01:18,998
Every day I am on Wikipedia, I'm simply at home, 

17
00:01:19,445 --> 00:01:27,217
so I will do all my personal works, and then I will sit with my netbook and I will edit, 

18
00:01:28,45 --> 00:01:33,769
and I will create articles, and I will create articles on Mathematics, 

19
00:01:34,5 --> 00:01:40,31
and then Tamil being my mother tongue, and my favorite language, 

20
00:01:41,0 --> 00:01:47,94
I edit the articles created by the others for spelling mistakes and grammar. 

21
00:01:48,8 --> 00:01:52,06
Everyone is benefited by this whether they are rich or poor. 

22
00:01:52,548 --> 00:01:58,10
Here, by a mere click, the whole world is in front of us.

23
00:01:59,13 --> 00:02:04,34
This is giving the complete information through Internet. 

24
00:02:05,298 --> 00:02:10,71
Without any cost. It is really a great thing.
