Amartya Bag

Amartya Bag (bn : অমর্ত্য বাগ) is a legal professional and a proud Wikipedian. He is a Veteran Editor II, Autopatroller, Reviewer and Rollbacker on English Wikipedia. He came across Wikipedia while searching for some material on Julius Caesar for his school project in the summer of 2005 and he landed on Wikipedia and has been mesmerised by the wonderful contribution of some volunteers. Since then he continued to edit under IPs, mostly related to his place of residence. He is an active registered Wikipedian since 30 December 2005. He resides in a small but beautiful town of Cooch Behar, in the Indian state of West Bengal. He is currently residing in New Delhi - where he works in a legal education firm. He has a degree in Integrated B.A. LL. B. with honours specialisation in Intellectual property law from KIIT Law School, Bhubaneswar. He has a interest in editing pages related to North Bengal, West Bengal, Protected areas of India, Indian law and intellectual property law and his edits are confined to these fields. However in near future he may diversify to some other fields or may be helping in fighting vandalism. Moreover he thinks that "Wikipedia is one of the biggest charity organisation because no donation can be as big as the donation of free knowledge". He is proud to be one in the charity, for the prosperity and growth of knowledge and the human society.

Cygnus
Cygnus is a northern constellation on the plane of the Milky Way, deriving its name from the Latinized Greek word for 'swan'. Cygnus is one of the most recognizable constellations of the northern summer and autumn, and it features a prominent asterism known as the Northern Cross. Cygnus was among the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century astronomer Ptolemy, and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations. This illustration of Cygnus, with the surrounding constellations of Lacerta, Lyra and Vulpecula, was produced around 1823 as part of Urania's Mirror, a set of 32 astronomical star-chart cards published in the United Kingdom.Lithograph credit: Sidney Hall; restored by Adam Cuerden
