Krishna Prem[edit]

  • Comment: There are two main hook facts, and both are verifiable online. That Krishna Prem "was recognized as a Hindu saint by many Indians of his day" can be seen in the Haberman online abstract, even though the full article is behind a paywall. The "great soul" quote from Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan is embedded more deeply in the article, but it can be viewed on Google Scholar (LINK THAT WORKS FOR ME) by searching on the quoted phrase "hailed as a great soul when he died by the then president of india, sarvepalli radhakrishnan". Finally, that Nixon was a fighter pilot is supported by several of the sources, including Brooks, to whom it is cited.

Thanks for the review. Since you think it's good to go (as you say above), please add a check-off symbol to the page, so that it's clear that you're affirming the article/hook as ready. You can find the script for the check-off symbol above the editing area when you have the template open for editing. I am also copying the script here: {{subst:DYKtick}}

Thanks for reminding me. I have however placed {{subst:DYKtickAGF}} due to offline sources. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email 06:57, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggested alternate hook to expand possible options. To me the original hook seems more interesting because the idea of being a British fighter pilot seems incongruous with being a Hindu spiritual teacher - which makes the hook surprising and therefore interesting. So unless I am persuaded otherwise I prefer the original hook. What do you see as the advantage of the alternate hook? Thanks -- Presearch (talk) 16:02, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
I think you are right. I thought to make the hook shorter but the original hook is more interesting. ♛♚★Vaibhav Jain★♚♛ Talk Email 06:57, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
