  • ALT1: ... that in Hindu mythology, King Kalmashapada is said to have asked the sage who turned him into a demon to impregnate his wife?
A bit clearer I hope; maybe not clear enough - this is unfamiliar territor for Western readers. Johnbod (talk) 14:13, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
  • More than "a bit", as the original, which I've struck, is completely unintelligible. However, it still needs a "real world" connection, such as "in Hindu mythology". MANdARAX  XAЯAbИAM 23:27, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol question.svg Article is new enough, long enough, adequately referenced. QPQ done. ALT1 is catchy. However, there needs to be a citation next to the hook statement in the article. Yoninah (talk) 00:09, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol voting keep.svg Citation added. Offline hook ref AGF. Good to go. Yoninah (talk) 23:39, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
