Accuracy box[edit]

I removed nandita das's photo , some one paste it with Fakir Mohan Senapati, as Senapati was considered a builder of the Nation and to add an actress photo to him is not only unjustified but also a vugar attempt to demoralize a Nation's identity. 12 June 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.200.225.6 (talk)



I removed the notice questioning the accuracy of the article because no dispute was raised on the talk page. If someone wants to put it back, please explain why on the talk page. Brad T. Cordeiro 03:11, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

You had removed Nandita Das' photo. Brilliant! So you have shown that Oriya culture could produce only one Fakir Mohan Senapati. You did not add any other eminent figure. You didn't add Utkala Mani Gopabandhu's photo, Utakala Gaurava Madhusudan Das' photo, both who have done great service to the state of Orissa. You didn't even think about adding Biju Patnaik's photo, who had done a lot to develop the nation! And what's wrong with Nandita Das? She is not some actress whose capabilities are only confined to exposing flesh like Bipasha Basu. She is an excellent actress and eminent film maker. She has acted mostly in art house cinema, more than even Irfan Khan and and Konkona Sen. She is well known abroad and she is highly respected and has received international acclaim.Whenever I mention that Nandita Das is an Oriya, some people cannot believe that such an excellent and accomplished actor is from Orissa, which they always believe to be some culturally backward and deficient place. And you removed her photo, because she is an actress and therefore vulgar! If Lipsa Acharya's photo had been pasted and you would have removed it, I would have applauded you for having the sense to do so! Even I would remove such an infamous woman's photo! But Nandita Das!It says a lot about your view of things. Look at other community articles like the Irish- American one. These articles not only have respected statesmen and writers and poets, but also singers and actors. It reflects the diverse accomplishments of a community. Orissa has not just produced one Fakir Mohan Senapati, a distinguished and revolutionary writer nevertheless. It has also produced many people who have influenced the destiny of this nation. These photos should inspire people to do something great so that their community can hold their heads high. And as far as "vulgarity" is concerned, a century ago, when Fakir Mohan Senapati was alive, if there was a Wikipedia and such an article was produced, and if someone had put the portrait of Sarala Das and somebody else put the Builder of the Nation, Fakir Mohan Senapati's photo, then someone, who is a self appointed judge of public morals at that period of time, would have removed Fakir Mohan Senapatiji's photo, because writer who is eminent for us now, was considered a revolutionary by many of his contemporaries, who harmed the order of society. So think before you start judging vulgarity. -Prakritapuram. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Prakritapuram (talkcontribs) 19:22, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Removing un-polished content[edit]

"The inhabitants of orissa (known as oriya or odia) are aryans who are also known as north indians. Their culture differ from th dravidian culture (commonly known as south indians) to much extent. Both north indians and south indians live in the same country INDIA and they have great brotherhood among themselves despite of their differernces in culture"

I'm removing this as it is clearly not up to Wikipedia's standards, as well as being obviously written by an excessively proud Oriya person (and being located in the wrong place). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.48.42.244 (talk) 08:04, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
