I am Ganesh Venkat. I work for a fortune 500 company as an IT solutions architect.I fancy myself to be a writer and a journalist :-) . I do contribute to sports websites as a freelance writer once in a while, wiki news provides the opportunity to satisfy my pursuit on a daily basis as a news reporter.
Areas of Interest in Wiki News 
My main areas of interests are sports, especially cricket. I love covering anything about cricket and I'm a great fan of the cricket teams of India and the West Indies. Apart from that I'm interested in contributing articles about U.S.News and Indian News, covering business, politics and anything interesting. I would also like to write about any other stories from varying topics that might be valuable and informative.
I want to contribute to Wiki News by writing articles expanding the coverage of sports(cricket) and Indian News. I plan to share some photographs as well.
