Mozilla Journey from Jodhpur to San Francisco


Hello World..!!

A story of a boy with Mozilla is going to start here, Who is Meghraj Suthar (Raj), From Jodhpur Rajasthan (India), pursuing B.Tech at JIET Group of Institutions, Jodhpur (Affiliate by NBA). I have started my journey with Mozilla from Jodhpur (My Home Town) with Mozboot @ IITJ Event, in this event i learned lot of things about Mozilla and its products. I listened a sentence in this event that is “We are here to make better web.”, i had not concentrate on this sentence at that moment because i was new to the Community and i did not know much more about the #Mozilla. After all the they provided to me some goodies like:- Stickers, badges etc, After the event i came to the home and i asked one question to myself “Why they are doing everything free off cost?”. Here i started to search and know more about Mozilla with net and by other resources. After all i was not too serious about the Mozilla. One day i was Facebooking or Googling, i saw a link and that link brought me to the Firefox OS AppDays & MozBoot IIT Bombay 2013 page, that event was in Mumbai and i live in Jodhpur and also a Non-Mozillian so i was not getting myself “What to do? What to do?”. I went to one of my friend Asharam Seervi , i told him, “i want attend this event can you join me?” He said what will be in this event i told him about all agenda of the Event. He got ready to go for this event, We came to the Mumbai first ever for this event without any knowing experience about Mumbai. Finally came to the IIT Mumbai with the help of Google Map and Vineel Reddy Pindi , event started with Welcome Note and as according to Agenda. It was Day-Night of event i was listening and observing everything what they are saying. Within the event i learned, how to develop an app for Firefox OS. I was not too good in coding so i was not able to make an app for Firefox OS but i met to the Vineel Reddy Pindi and i said, “Is their way to contribute with Mozilla except coding?”, He said yes, their is lot of ways where you can start contributing, He helped me lot of. I chosen SUMO (Support Mozilla) to contribute with Mozilla and started contributing. After the great event they given us lot of goodies like:- T-shirts, badge, pens etc. We came to the Home with such a great positive or optimistic ideas, and also learned here what exactly means of “Better Web”. Now time to put own self with #Mozilla and had started contributing with

These all are awesome things for me, One day Mozilla announced Names of the all contributors on Mozilla Monument placed at San Francisco. First day i ignored that, because i thought these all are very active contrinutor and i thought these are Reps(Mozila Repersantative), but one day one of my friend (Ram Dayal Vaishnav) sent me picture of Mozilla Monument left bottom and said, “See who is there in 29th line.”, i replied, “Who?” and i start founding in 29th line, and i saw…..

MozillaI was not getting a task, “what to do next?” i said thanks to Ram. I shared that moment with all Mozillians by Social Media and also with Collegians, they all Congratulate me. So finally i connected to the San San Francisco..!!!

“Do those things which you love, not those which makes you very irritated.”

Finally want to say “Do Whatever you want..!!”

Sorry for wasting your time, but it is a true story of A MOZILLIAN.

Thank you….Have a great Day..!!!!!
