Vikas is a true Mozillian rockstar. He helped me with India's swag production and planning for the Firefox 10th Anniversary and I was so impressed. He's fast, he's effective, he's dedicated, and he gets things done! Vikas is on top of his work and so knowledgeable. Truly a joy to work with and look forward to working with him more in the future!
I see Vikas' name all the time associated with Mozilla's work around the web. A very active contributor!
A legendary Mozilla contributor, had been helping to push Mozilla's mission forward very hard. You always find him on the Webmaker Bay or in Community Building Team, else in Hyderabad. A good speaker, event organizer and a bad blogger. Recruited several contributors, and still counting. Proud to vouch for Vikas! :)
