Deshastha[edit]

Please read the sentence regarding cremation properly before making changes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.9.96.122 (talk) 13:48, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

All Deshasthas are cremated according to Vedic rites, usually within a day of the individual's death.

In some other communities not everyone is cremated. For example, infants who didn't have teeth at the time of death are buried. On a separate note, Sanyasis (who originally can be from any caste) are buried in salt. --74.9.96.122 (talk) 15:21, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Daivadnya[edit]

Feel free to revert them with a valid rationale in edit summary. --Redtigerxyz Talk 14:10, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Learnt daivadnya priests is the view of Daivadnyas, the rival groups may call them fools. "Good cook" is - as I said - personal opinion of the author of Gazateer of the Bombay presidency-Kanara district in 1883. Two problems with good cooks: 1. "good cook" is a relative term, A may say X is a good cook, but B may say X cooks bad food. 2. Now after 100 years, they may not be good cooks. A newer reference is needed. For good food, see Wikipedia:Words_to_avoid#Words_that_editorialize.--Redtigerxyz Talk 11:19, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

3 rr violation[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Goa. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. Please stop the disruption, otherwise you may be blocked from editing. --Deepak D'Souza 09:28, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Re:Help![edit]

So what kind of map would you want to make? --ざくら 17:58, 13 October 2009 (UTC)


So do you have any source material for the map? The article on the Daivajnas states that they reside "in the states of Goa, coastal Karnataka, coastal Maharashtra." You could make an approximate map using that description as a guide, but it's difficult to tell how far the borders should be drawn in the coastal areas.

You can find some blank base maps here at Wikimedia Commons. If you want, I could also upload the blank map that was used to make, for example, this and this map. --ざくら 20:50, 13 October 2009 (UTC)


I'd recommend that you include citations. The sourcing of images is important, especially if the article on the Daivajnas ever becomes a featured article. --ざくら 18:31, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Template:Hindu festivals[edit]

Hindu festivals needs to have only major festivals, as there are numerous regional festivals as well as regional names for major festivals like samvatsar padvo for Gudi Padwa. It is unnecessary to state regional names in the template too avoid over-crowding. Vijayadashami is called Dasaro in Konkani or Dasara in Marathi or Dushhera in Hindi, that does not mean we need to add Dasaro or Dasara or Dusshera too. --Redtigerxyz Talk 06:18, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Cheti Chand tradition is distinct from Gudi Padwa etc. (not on same day either). Samvatsar padvo is same as (synonym of) Gudi Padwa. Isn't there a difference? --Redtigerxyz Talk 07:59, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
I thought samvatsar padvo = Gudi Padwa. If the samvatsar padvo is significantly different from Gudi Padwa (like Ugadi and Padwa are different, even though they fall on same day), then create a referenced article about samvatsar padvo and then add a link. --Redtigerxyz Talk 08:23, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
While some traditions overlap, Gudi Padwa is new year like Ugadi but Padwa also revolves around the gudi, which is not part of the Andhra or Kannada tradition, also they have separate wiki articles. I have added Konkani besides Gudi Padwa as samvatsar padvo was linked there. --Redtigerxyz Talk 08:47, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: Daivadniya Brahmins[edit]

Thanks for the info. Do you mean to say that the converted Daivadnyas have almost all migrated to Mangalore? Also, members of which community carry the surname "Porob"? Do you mind taking the time to help me out regarding people of which villages are called by these names and in which talukas these villages are located. Thanks. They are as follows:

  • Sirudhegars
  • Aldengars
  • Chutdnangars
  • Divodegars
  • Natnolegars
  • Saashragars
  • Puruvargars
  • Maidegars

The information provided about Konkani by whoever on wiki is very incorrect. Stop misleading the people. Swapnilsaraf (talk) 19:28, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

It's the author who is vandalizing and should be reported to wiki. The wiki for Konkani language is contentious to the wiki for Marathi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marathi_language Read "In ancient times, Marathi was called Maharashtri,"

The issue is of Konkani being independent language is contentious. This wiki link is unnecessarily harming wiki's reputation. Hence the author of Konkani Language needs to be reported for vandalism since s/he has directly written something that is weakening the wiki for Marathi_language. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Swapnilsaraf (talkcontribs) 19:55, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

I hope you understand when I told you to read the wiki page about Marathi. The page clearly states that Maharasthri is ancient Marathi. The fact is it is the ancestor of Marathi, Divehi and Sinhalese and not Konkani. Why are you trying to induce your thoughts into peoples mind even though the Goan locals themselves know that Konkani is dialect of Marathi. Konkani didn't even have a script since early days. Why isn't the Goan culture different than that of Maharashtra. What does it prove to you? You are thinking only in one direction. It's absolutely wrong for the author to put one sided thought in a widely used website such as wikipedia since the website is used worldwide. The author is directly violating the already placed fact of Marathi and also disturbing its integrity. The boundary between Marathi and Konkani was made recently by some Konkani protagonist like you. Don't try to divide. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Swapnilsaraf (talkcontribs) 03:51, 16 June 2010 (UTC)

gotra![edit]

The gotras of Daivajna brahmins updated by you includes many gotras of vishwabrahmins or Panchals. For instance Sanaga, Sanatana, Abhuvana, Pratanan, Suparna, Vishwagni etc are predominantly Vishwabrahmin gotras. By including these, you seem to imply that Daivajna Brahmins are the same as Panchal brahmins, irrespective of their origin. Historically, I am led to believe that a section of the Panchal brahmins during the peshwa rule in Pune started calling themselves "Daivadnya" brahmins and became a laughing stock. I haven't come across any historical account of what made them call themselves so. I can only a hazard a guess and it is this. They came to know of the goldsmiths of goa who considered themselves as Daivajna brahmins and since the Panchal Sonar's thought they should also do the same. This is a classic case of Sanskritisation. In Maharashtra (except for Daivajnas who have migrated from Konkan, Goa and Karnataka) Daivadnya's are synonymous with Panchal's. This is what the surveys by the British, recorded. There is certainly a distinction between the two. The Daiwadnya's of pune or other parts of maharashtra do not belong to the same community as daivajna's of goa or karnataka. It is important that this distinction be made and communicated across. If not, it will send an incomplete and a wrong message to people who will start thinking(mistakenly, ofcourse) that all daivajna's are Panchals. please do the needful and correct the list of gotras. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 117.195.44.238 (talk) 18:19, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Reply: About the so called Nagari barap[edit]

The script in the Rangabhatta's letter is indeed an older version of Devanagari. It is called the Nāgarī script (hi: नागरी लिपि) (knn: नागर बरप). The Nāgarī script evolved from the Gupta Script and it, in turn evolved into three scripts, Purvi Nāgarī , Nandināgarī and Devanāgarī.

The Devanāgarī further evolved into Southern Devanagari (contemporary) and Northern Devanagari (old) pen families accordingly. NSDeva.png

If you peruse the inscription at the foot of Bahubali, you will see that the style of writing र, ण, च and also क has more resemblance to Nandiāgarī than Devanagari. In addition, if one looks at Ranga Bhat, Vinayaka Pandit, and Appu Bhat's letter, one will observe that च, र, and ज are more like their Nandinagari counterparts than they are of their Devanagari counterparts. This implies:

  1. Devanagari and Nandinagari had a common ancestor; the Nagari script.
  2. Konkani inscriptions and records found in the Nāgarī /Nāgar script imply that Konkani was being written well before the Devanagari script came into popular use.


Devanagari is commonly referred to as Nagari and that's all there is to it. But to deny the existence of the Nagari script is blasphemous. I request you to Kindly go through all links provided as evidence to my claim. I finally request you to peruse the link for नागरि बरप

Regards, Akshay. Imperium Caelestis 18:02, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Reply: What exactly are you trying to prove?[edit]

I sought to prove that

  1. The Nagari/Nagar script is a script older to the Devanagari.
  2. Ancient Konkani literature and epigraphy exists in the Nagari script and not the Devanagari script.
  3. That it is indeed called Nagar Barap in Konkani.

Stop Covert Edit War[edit]

You are strongly notified against covert editing the Konkani Language page. You seem to have conveniently turned a blind eye to all the addendum provided. Please educate yourself to click words coloured blue in my earlier reply for all the references you seek.

You forget that Konkani has a history, not only in Goa, but also in Karnataka and Kerala.You may display your jingoism on a separate page for Goan Konkani. Karnataka and Kerala Konkani (incl. Aamchigele) have a well endowed lexicon independent of their own.

You have been motherlessly editing the " Nagari/Nagar script" part from aforesaid page without having reasonable deliberation or without notifying; something that is extremely immature on your part and goes against policies & guidelines of Wikipedia.

Any wanton editing, done without discussion or consensus, will be reported.

Konkani Language Babel Language Templates[edit]

Greetings fellow Konkani,

It is suggested that we translate into Konkani. The idea behind the language templates is to suggest to another user a users proficiency in a particular language. Under this logic, it is only fair that the templates be translated into Konkani. We will enlist our phrases and deliberate thereupon. Phrases based on mutual consent will then be posted.

Please lave suggestions and comments on the Discussion page.

Reply: Wrong sources![edit]

I suggest you read page 9 para 3. In A history of Konkani literature: from 1500 to 1992, Manohararāya Saradesāya has clearly mentioned Nagari (page 9, para 3) and Devanagari (page 9, para 4) as two separate scripts . I suggest you go through the book thoroughly.

You've also mentioned to have Konkani letters written in the Modi script. Well, I suggest you refer to page 10 para 1 of the aforesaid book which clearly states Konkani does not appear to have used the Modi script like Marathi

I protest your bias against Canara Konkani wikipedians. You may have had access to Marathised Konkani documents; that does not mean you deny legitimacy to Bona Fide Konkani documents and epigraphy from Canara. I reiterate, Nagar Barap is simply Nagari script, the predecessor of the Devanagari script, as it is called in Canarese Konkani (ISO 639-3 kex).

I see that you have again edited information from the Konkani language page, once again. You simply can not wish the past away. If you indeed wish to serve the cause of saving the Konkani language, you must have the gumption to accept her with all there is to her and all that she has to offer.

Also, do enter suggestions in the Babel language templates.

Reply: your sources[edit]

Mr. Nijgoykar, I suggest we stick to communicating in English. Finally you agree to the existence of a separate Nagari script as the precursor of the Devanagari script . The souls of the people who created it might finally rest in peace!!

  1. according to Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources, blogs come under self-published sources (online and paper) which says blogs may be used.
  2. I suggest you read Manohararāya Saradesāya's book thoroughly.
  3. wrt Modi; Wikipedia requires proof...show me proof..you can not put in your own research. Especially when Manohararāya Saradesāya, mentions Konkani does not appear to have used the Modi script like Marathi
  4. I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that you are one of those, who believe that Konkani is a dialect of Marathi and wish to deny its existence as an independent language. If it is so, I request you to colour the Marathi related wiki pages with your fervent jingoism.

Karnataka Konkani[edit]

Hi there! I am a Konkani speaker originally from Mangalore. Please have a look at Kanara_(Canara)_Konkani. It seems like a perfectly well written article; please tell me why it should not be merged into Karnataka Konkani. Please be very specific in your reasons. If you do not give valid reason, I will go ahead and merge the two articles, since they may create confusion in readers. Here is your opportunity to present your side of the argument. Please do NOT edit out contributions without giving adequate reasons as they are a HUGE waste of valuable time for the contributor, and may also result in frustration and anger in both parties.

Shuddhi movement[edit]

Hi, i have deleted the section as it violates WP:UNDUE. Why is the conversion of a few thousand individuals a significant event in the history of the Goan Catholic community? Did these lead to the depletion of the Catholic population? These individuals due to their conversion have ceased to remain part and parcel of the community. Their descendants no longer even identify themselves as Goan Catholics. This info is more appropriate in the Shuddhi article, not there. Joyson Noel Holla at me! 11:22, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

I have incorporated the statements into the Shuddhi and Christianisation of Goa articles, as i felt that it was more relevant there. Joyson Noel Holla at me! 12:41, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Please provide the Marathi text of the following. When quoting non-English sources, the text in the source must be specified in the reference. Translate it for me and i will add it in the sources provided in both the articles. Thanks.

Around 4,851 Catholic Gaudas from Tiswadi, 2,174 from Ponda, 250 from Bicholim and 329 from Sattari became Hindus in this ceremony. The total number of Gauda converts was 7,815.

Sorry I'm late getting back to you on this issue, my change has been removed and so have my citations.

Please do not add Kalhana to that article again without a reliable source that specifically says he was a Kashmiri Pandit.

Vishwakarma (caste)[edit]

You have made a lot of edits to Vishwakarma (caste) in the last hour or so. A lot of them do not look correct to me - are you sure that the sources support all of your statements? I am tempted to revert the lot and start again but appreciate that you have done a fair amount of work. Regardless, the whole thing unfortunately now needs a big copyedit - the grammar, spelling and generally tone is all wrong. - Sitush (talk) 11:10, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hi, Are you aware of the meanings of daiji and gotri? Thanks. Joyson Prabhu Holla at me! 11:34, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes very well.... dayaji means Sapind... there is not term as gorti ..gotri means of gotra... but its called as sagotra (sa- same) we say eka gotrache in Konkani. Eg.Sapind or Dayji are those people who follow a death or birth pollution of 11 days (some case distant Daiji like after 7 generations,3 days pollution). Whereas Sagotra people re people who belong to a common gotra,they may be related at all and do not follow any birth or death pollution.Only if they attend death ceremony they have pollution which gets over after they have bath ans do tara darshan or see the stars.On the other hand.. all the Daijis belong to same gotra.Daijis is a clan which is related up to seven generations,after 7 generations they are not daijis.. but sum ppl consider them as daiji too. Nijgoykar (talk) 14:13, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! In the Mangalorean Catholic dialect, we use the term daiji to refer to a cousin. Joyson Prabhu Holla at me! 17:05, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Another question[edit]

What on earth is a gaita? Priolkar's and Borges' books state that it is a Hindu musical instrument. However, a search in Wikipedia states that these are various types of bagpipes native to northern Spain and Portugal and a variety of horn, flute or oboe-like instruments in southern Spain. A google search also fails to come up with a description of what type of instrument it is. I assume that this is a local Goan Hindu musical instrument. So would you mind explaining what type of an instrument is it? Thanks. Joyson Prabhu Holla at me! 14:15, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Stop icon

Your recent editing history at Vaishya Vani shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly.

To avoid being blocked, instead of reverting please consider using the article's talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. See BRD for how this is done. You can post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Please self-revert per WP:BRD, the comments at the article talk page and the thread initiated by by at WT:INB that was referred to in my last edit summary. Sitush (talk) 13:23, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
