@ Sripriya401: See this guide to writing your first article. You probably want to start with the article wizard. Make sure that your topic is notable (by our standards) before you begin, and remember to write the article in a neutral tone. LittlePuppers (talk) 04:04, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

How do u add pictures to the article? Sripriya401 (talk) 04:50, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

Hello, Sripriya401. You can find the answer to that question at WP:Uploading images. But my advice to you is not to spend time adding pictures until you have written a solid article: that would be like icing a cake before you bake it. Separately, I would advise you (as I advise all new editors) to spend a few weeks or months improving some of our millions of sub-standard articles, and learning how Wikipedia works, before you try the difficult task of writing a new encyclopaedia article. --ColinFine (talk) 14:51, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
