A fact from Morya Gosavi appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 25 January 2010 (check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
... that seven generations of Morya Gosavi(pictured) – a prominent saint of the GanapatyaHindu sect – were worshipped as incarnations of the god Ganesha, and his tomb still attracts many Ganesha devotees?"
"the form of Ganesha visited at Theur" ---> "the form of Ganesha, which according to a legend, visited Theur"
The para starts with "Another legend" so redundant IMO. --RedtigerxyzTalk 16:47, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
Then replace it with "the form of Ganesha which visited Theur."
"Tathwade village in Chinchwad" ---> "Tathwade". Mention that Tathwage is a village in the word's first usage.
Alternate spelling of Tathavade. Replaced with Tathavade. RedtigerxyzTalk 16:47, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
Delink sanjeevan samadhi at third usage.
"Morya took sanjeevan samadhi" ---> "Morya also took sanjeevan samadhi"
"Dev spelt also as Deva or Deo (god)" ---> "Deva" (delinked)
Replace Dev with Deva at all other usages.
"impressed by the latter's "miracle" of changing into jasmine flowers the piece of beef sent by the former" ---> "impressed by the latter's "miracle" of changing a piece of beef sent by the former into jasmine flowers" (link beef)
Pune ---> Poona
Current spellings are used through the article. So Pune. --RedtigerxyzTalk 17:37, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
It is a general practice to use the then name of the city. You should replace Pune with Poona at all usages.
Poona is a British era name, not at the time of Morya. The name at the time of Morya is unknown. RedtigerxyzTalk 16:47, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
"is a prominent saint of the Hindu Ganapatya sect, which considers the elephant-faced god Ganesha as the Supreme Being. Morya Gosavi is considered the chief spiritual progenitor of the Ganapatyas and described as the "most famous devotee" of Ganesha." - All of this needs to be mentioned in the sections.
The source does not mention beef's impurity. You should add an another source for it.
IMO, not everything needs a reference. The impurity of beef is unlikely to be challenged. --RedtigerxyzTalk 17:37, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
It might not be challenged, but someone who is not at all familiar with Hinduism may like to verify this.
(c) (original research)
Broad in its coverage:
(a) (major aspects)
His dates are disputed and not unknown.
Dating section exists. I did not understand which aspect needs to be added. --RedtigerxyzTalk 17:37, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
I am talking about the lead - "The lifetime of Morya Gosavi is unknown".
The source says that his father was Bhat Shaligram and Vaman Narayan was his father's friend.
Mention Sidhdha Yogiraj.
The first story (He was thrown out of the house by his father ... 50 miles (80 km) away from Morgaon" is from Trans. Bom. Lit. Soc. III. 69; Murray's Handbook, 178-179. Lord Valentia (Travels, II. 152-158).
These three references are secondary sources of the story. They are probably not the authors. --RedtigerxyzTalk 17:37, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
Mention Mrs. Graham.
Thought WP:UNDUE (violating b part), as article about Morya, not his son. --RedtigerxyzTalk 17:37, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
The temple still enjoy the grant (£1380)
1885 data. Since this is about the saint and not the temple, thought will be UNDUE. --RedtigerxyzTalk 17:37, 29 July 2013 (UTC)
Mention the names of the 8 villages (the source provides them)
^This requirement is significantly weaker than the "comprehensiveness" required of featured articles; it allows shorter articles, articles that do not cover every major fact or detail, and overviews of large topics.
^Vandalism reversions, proposals to split or merge content, good faith improvements to the page (such as copy editing), and changes based on reviewers' suggestions do not apply. Nominations for articles that are unstable because of unconstructive editing should be placed on hold.
^Other media, such as video and sound clips, are also covered by this criterion.
^The presence of images is not, in itself, a requirement. However, if images (or other media) with acceptable copyright status are appropriate and readily available, then some such images should be provided.
