- Bhagadatta (Sanskrit: भगदत्त) means "given by God".
- My name is Madhav Pandit.
- I'm interested in etymology and am working towards improving the etymological information provided at Wiktionary.

- I have been a registered user at Wiktionary since May 8, 2017. I was made autopatroller on June 1, 2017. Before registering, I edited anonymously, with my earliest edit being made in October 2016 (My first ever Wiktionary edit was a rather poorly formatted attempt at documenting the Indo-European origin of the Sanskrit term नाश (nāśa), made at 11:32 AM on October 7, 2016. I created my first ever Wiktionary entry, titled "उग्र (ugra)" at 7:22 AM on January 5, 2017).
- My username was माधवपंडित (my name in the Devanagari script) from May 8, 2017 to June 19, 2018. On June 19, 2018, it was changed to Bhagadatta. The magnitude of my wiki work as माधवपंडित dwarfs my contribution as Bhagadatta.

Languages I know and scripts I can readEdit
- I am proficient in English and Hindustani (Hindi/Urdu).
- I love British English and wish to learn it someday.
- I speak Standard Hindi and the Deccani dialect (specifically, the Goan variety of the Deccani dialect of Hindustani).
- I also speak fluent Konkani and have a fair understanding of Marathi though my spoken Marathi is quite rusty.
- I also speak Kannada. I can comprehend all dialects but am most comfortable in:
- Bangalore Kannada
- I took French in 8th grade & learnt it for 3 years but my knowledge of spoken French is very, very basic and very, very limited.
- Excepting the Latin script and the Devanagari script, all scripts I can read were taught to me by myself.
- I am most comfortable in the Latin alphabet and I can read and write the Devanagri script quite easily as well.
- While looking at the transliterations on the internet, specifically on google translate and wiktionary, I taught myself to read the Cyrillic, Kannada, Arabic and Greek scripts.
