Hallur hook at DYK[edit]

I've just selected Hallur for DYK, but thought I'd just check it was ok to use the hook "that the discovery of horse bones at the archaeological site of Hallur in south India refuted the theory that horses were introduced to this region as part of an Aryan invasion?" I was a bit confused by the debate between you and Wetman on this point, but think this hook is much more interesting than the other suggestion.

Also, Aryan invasion leads to a disambiguation page, so I have changed this to pipe the link to Indo-Aryan migration, which I think was the invasion meant? Regards, Espresso Addict (talk) 22:54, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Updated DYK query On 21 March, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Hallur, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Interesting article, thanks! --Espresso Addict (talk) 02:58, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Talagunda[edit]

Nice to see you back, and with lots of images I hope. The Talagunda inscription, one of the most important ones on Kadamba history was discovered I believe by George Moraes, whose book I have ("Kadamba Kula"). More later. Did you go to Banavasi? any early inscriptions? I need images of Kadamba Shikara, their stepped pyramid, that essentially defines the fundamentals of later Hoysala Shikara's.Dineshkannambadi (talk) 11:23, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

New Photo[edit]

Hello Amar. I guess you are one of the lead editors of Shivana Samudra article. Somehow I feel the current photos do not give feeling about the depth of the falls. Please take a look Image:SivanaSamudra.JPG that our family took during recent visit. We were lucky it was a peak time. If suitable please post it on the article. There is no copyright issues with the photo. I am o trying to get a better photo of Hogenakkal Falls falls from my brother who lives close by. The current one in HK article shows limited view. Hope to post it when there is a break from current intense and heated discussions. Naadapriya (talk) 06:31, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Hogenakkal falls[edit]

Looks like you might be getting a little hot under the collar on the talk page recently, not that I am in any sort of position to criticize anyone else for that myself, mind you. ;) For what it's worth, I think what might work best here would be to call in neutral mediators to sort it through. By doing so, it might also help preclude any further, repetitive discussions on the subject in the future. Just a thought, anyway. John Carter (talk) 15:53, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Just want to make it clear that the above was in no way a "warning" of any kind, because it wasn't. I can and do understand how people can get frustrated regarding places of indeterminate political ties. I'm going to have to try to think of some way to phrase things a bit more clearly in the future to make that a bit clearer. John Carter (talk) 20:57, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Recent changes to articles and abuse by Special:Contributions/218.248.1.194[edit]

Please consider this note a head's-up on a recent spate of articles changes and abusive talk page remarks by an apparent single-purpose IP account Special:Contributions/218.248.1.194 to Kannada-related articles. Those abused in the remarks include User:Dineshkannambadi, User:Sarvagnya, User:KNM, and User:Amarrg, per [1]. Additional abusive remarks and edit summaries directed to Dineshkannambadi are to be found in the IP's history log.

While I can revert the abusive talk page remarks, the IP's contribution history also shows a string of changes to multiple Indian history articles. Given the circumstances, it appears that these changes are of questionable merit. Unfortunately, I am not qualified on the topic content to determine if any of the other changes are correct. Accordingly, I am posting to the talk pages of the editors referenced by the IP so that you can collectively or individually take any actions on the change articles, talk pages, or the IP account that you think appropriate. -- Michael Devore (talk) 03:20, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Reg. removal of erumaiyoor changes[edit]

Hi Amarrg, I saw that story in more than one forums. Thats why asked a question on discussion page, seems nobody saw that. I don't have a proof yet, so, I have included that stuff with "citation needed". At least we could have left that for some time, so someone else might have added citation. I will try to find some proof. Still, it is quite an interesting story. :) Name "Erumaiyoor" looks a bit rough, but we don't know the context now. ~1000 years back it could have meant something different. In tamil, "erumai maram" is still understandable. Let me list some related words here, which help you better understand this; erumai - buffalo, erumbu - ant, erumbi - elephant, eruthu - bullock, etc. --V4vijayakumar (talk) 15:22, 24 March 2009 (UTC)


I got some more details regarding this. I have also one book and an article which says this; give me some more time, let me provide these details to you. Mysooru should have come from mahishanavooru. There are some more places whose name is related to buffalo, like konannakundte. If you don't know what that means, "buffalo pond". and, konappanna agraharam near electronics city, bangalore. :) --V4vijayakumar (talk) 03:21, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Request Edit in Shankar Nag's article.[edit]

Hi there. :)

I just wanted to draw your attention towards the Shankarnag article. Ranga Shankara just launched a memorial website for Shankar Nag @ shankarnag.in.

I request you to kindly make ammends if possible to the section. The reason I'm sending this message is because the article is under the purview of Wiki Karnataka team and I didn't want to be interfering with the working. —Preceding unsigned comment added by SanjitN (talkcontribs) 20:48, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Wikipedians from Karnataka[edit]

Hi, I'm trying to put together a list of Wikipedians from Karnataka. I'm also trying to gather together the contacts. The idea is to build a network of Wiki enthusiasts, contributors from the region that could help sync off-line Wiki activity, bring together people who can work together in effectively reaching out to the public in the region on using Wikipedia and related open content projects. Can you help by sending your contact and also by referring editors from Karnataka you've come across on Wikipedia? Thank you, --H P Nadig \Talk \Contributions 19:34, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Bdvt.jpg[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Bdvt.jpg requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion," which appears inside of the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

FAR of Mysore[edit]

I have nominated Mysore for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here.-RaviMy Tea Kadai 16:46, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Mysore urban structure[edit]

Can you try to write some sentences on the urban structure of the city? Those can be added to the Geography section. The last paragraph of Geography section at present truly belongs t Civic administration (water supply, sewage etc). You can have a look at the Urban structure subsection in Geography section of Kolkata for guidance (urban structure of Mysore does not need to be a separate subsection though).
