Ganesh Jayanthi[edit]

Hi!

Thanks for the assessment of Junagarh Fort article. I have completed my inputs for the Ganesh Jayanthi article, which you may like to post at an appropriate time. I am working on expanding the artcile on Shankha. Would you like to join me? I hope you had a nice holiday.--Nvvchar (talk) 05:51, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

See here for the draft article on Shankha User:Nvvchar/sandbox/Saptha Badri. --Nvvchar (talk) 16:51, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
I have seen the changes made by you in the Shankha article. Fine. I have only made minor edits. I will move it to main space if you have completed your inputs. Pl post it on DYK as a joint work with a suitable hook. Thanks.--Nvvchar (talk) 00:14, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Do you still want me to work on Diskit Monastery article ?--Nvvchar (talk) 08:18, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Since I have already almost completed my inputs on Diskit at User:Nvvchar/Sandbox 2, You may like to use it. Giving credit to me or not is left to you. I am moving Shankha to main space in a while.--Nvvchar (talk) 11:36, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
Moved to main space. It can be nominated now.--Nvvchar (talk) 11:49, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes we have noted your views on Kathmandu article. The inputs for the history section is still not complete and after that the whole section will be further reviewed. Also, please move Ganesh Jayanthi article to main space at your convenience.--Nvvchar (talk) 12:24, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
Excellent hook. Pl consider adding a colourful img of relgious person blowing the Shankha may also attract lot of viweres to the article.--Nvvchar (talk) 12:56, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
Nice img of Shankhas. I don't know how I could not locate it on flickr inspite of my intense search. I have two more Hinduism related articles, one on Mattu Pongal at User:Nvvchar/Sandbox 1 scheduled to be held on 15th Januray 2010 for special occassion posting and the other on Paduka at User:Nvvchar/Sandbox 5. I have not been able to find imgs of wooden footwear worn by saints (you may be able to find them). You may like to join me in expanding them.--Nvvchar (talk) 14:15, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for all the observations. Jallikattu can be mentioned as a festival observed as part of Mattu Pongal but the day of its observance varies from place to place. It could be either on the eve or after the Mattu Pongal, and where it is observed as a three day festival it could be held concurrent with the Mattu Pongal. I will read all the sources you have added and I have also located some. I will enlarge the article with changes as required with due noting of your views. I will do it in the next three days. As regards, Paduka, I started it purely as a 'foot wear' article but after reading the very well researched article by Bata Shoe Company (they have some lovely images of foot wear and the Paduka wearing by Rama, and also Krishna tending to Radha's feet. How can we get them to wiki?), I altered it to include the worship of feet or Pada or Paduka of Hindu dieties, particularly the Gaya temple which is exclusive for religious Sri Vaashnavaites like me - the Vishnupada.Thanks.--Nvvchar (talk) 06:21, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
I will add a few more lines before 31st Dec. --Nvvchar (talk) 16:23, 28 December 2009 (UTC)
I have completed my inputs. Left to you now to tell me when you are done so that I can move it to main space. I will work on Mattu Pongal from this evening.--Nvvchar (talk) 08:34, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
Very good Hook for Ganesh Jayanti. I have now moved Mattu Pongal to main space. I think Jallikattu would be a good topic for the DYK hook. Please go ahead and nominate on DYK. As regards Paduka, let us wait for two days as I am trying to get some photos taken in a nearby temple of Shankaracharya wearing Padukas.--Nvvchar (talk) 14:05, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Hello! Nominations galore![edit]

Hi redtiger.

Well, I have at last thought that it is the right time. I have nominated the article 2003 Afro-Asian Games for Good Article assessment. If you are interested, you can go ahead and review the article as you see fit. Suggestions for improvement are always welcome.

Cheers! A belated Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to you!

Munneswaram temple[edit]

Hi, long time no see :(, just now got some free time. I have updated this article, only thing left from me is more citations. Can you look over it before I nominate it for GA status. Thanks Taprobanus (talk) 06:44, 28 December 2009 (UTC)

Thanks and done. Happy Gregorian new year to you :)))Taprobanus (talk) 03:41, 29 December 2009 (UTC)
I think these pics that we have on the article is good enough as the rest I am unable to determine which Ganesh it is as well as most of the others are pics of decorative panels. The temple is deliberately low key from outside as the priests don’t want to overly provoke the locals but inside it resembles more and more a Buddhist Devale (Sinhalese for Temple dedicated Buddhist deities) which is painted in bright colors with panels unlike a south Indian style Saivite temple. It is an adaptation to survive in a new environment. Similar to a Church in Egypt in Muslim neighborhood which looks non descript with no crosses and even a bell tower that resembles a minaret :))) even if it once was an imposing Cathedral when the neighborhood was wholly Coptic Taprobanus (talk) 13:35, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, you helped a lot, without you, it wouldnt have reached that level. Now I need to do the same for Koneswaram next after I am done with the rewrite of the Vedda lkangauge article. Thanks Taprobanus (talk) 20:31, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Mattu Pongal[edit]

Wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year 2010. I have now completed my inputs to this article. You may like to see and add more or delete some paras. Let me know after you have finished so that I can move it to main space before posting on DYK as our joint article.--Nvvchar (talk) 15:22, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I have fixed the references. --Nvvchar (talk) 02:57, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
As suggested by you long time ago, I have now decided to get some of my artciles to get upgraded to GA status. I have now nominated Junagarh Fort for GA upgrade under Miscellenous. But the talk page is asking for sub topic which I have mentioned as History. But the error persists on the talk page. Can you pl check and rectify, and also tell me the correct procedure? This will enable me to post my other B cateogory artciles on GA. Thanks.--Nvvchar (talk) 06:14, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for making the change and also the tutorial on the referencing. Look forward to get some more tutorials on GA process. I will look into it and also try to imbibe the reference procedure in all my articles. I propose to post Pulicat Lake for GA. What would be the subsection for lakes?

By the way, I am collecting some info on Sri Chakra. Would it be a good article to expand?--Nvvchar (talk) 12:17, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for editing inputs. I have removed the text of Jain temple and also reference to Lakshi Narayan temple. I will go through your other suggestions as well. As regards Pulicat Lake, I have noted your views and will rewrite it soon before posting.--Nvvchar (talk) 13:19, 3 January 2010 (UTC)
Nice Hook for Mattu Pongal. Thanks.--Nvvchar (talk) 14:37, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

GA Sweeps update[edit]

Thanks to everyone's efforts to the GA Sweeps process, we are currently over 90% done with only 226 articles remain to be swept! As always, I want to thank you for using your time to ensure the quality of the older GAs. With over 50 members participating in Sweeps, that averages out to about 4 articles per person! If each member reviews an article once a week this month (or several!), we'll be completely finished. At that point, awards will be handed out to reviewers. As an added incentive, if we complete over 100 articles reviewed this month, I will donate $100 to Wikipedia Forever on behalf of all GA Sweeps participants. I hope that this incentive will help to increase our motivation for completing Sweeps while supporting Wikipedia in the process. If you have any questions about reviews or Sweeps let me know and I'll be happy to get back to you. Again, thank you for taking the time to help with the process, I appreciate your efforts! --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 00:15, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

DYK for Shankha[edit]

Updated DYK query On January 4, 2010, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Shankha, which you created or substantially expanded. You are welcome to check how many hits your article got while on the front page (here's how, quick check ) and add it to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Paduka[edit]

I have posted three imgs related to Paduka. One is of a wooden Paduka. TThe other two imgs are of Late Shankarcharya of Kamakoti Peet wearing Paduka. I have completed my inputs with this addition. You may like to add or delete some. Pl see before we post it on DYK. --Nvvchar (talk) 14:33, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Iahve posted the Paduka artcile on DYK.--Nvvchar (talk) 12:03, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
I have not done any special favour. You gave me some useful references and also copy eidted it. Incidentally, thanks for the assesment of Dal Lake under "B" class. You article on Ganesh temple is very nice.--Nvvchar (talk) 13:28, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
I will work on Sharabha now on one of my user pages, eventhough there is a running fued on the issue between Vaisnavites and Shaivites (lingayats of Karnatka in particular).--Nvvchar (talk) 07:39, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
I agree. If more material is available on Sharabha it should be reflected in an encyclopedic article. I will also pitch in, as time permits. By the way, since you have visited monasteries in Ladakh, can you clarify if Rizong and Ridzong (supposed to be the best nunnery) are the same monasteries?--Nvvchar (talk) 10:17, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

WP:FP nom[edit]

I have added the WP:FP nomination here. Let see if it can be a FP here as well. --TheMandarin (talk) 09:56, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

We missed the FP promotion by one vote Face-smile.svg. --TheMandarin (talk) 09:31, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
We can renom after few days / weeks. --TheMandarin (talk) 07:09, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
"OK. What are you currently working on" -- I am working on goddess Varahi, ( wikipedia lacks an article on this ). I am working in my User:TheMandarin/Sandbox, but this is still in very initial stages, without much useful information...but there is enough information out there to create a respectable article. Request you to make some additions as and when you get time. Apart from this, considerable of my time is being wasted at WP:ANI and Wikiquette alert noticeboard., --TheMandarin (talk) 17:16, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes I would like to collaborate on Varahi article and you have already made good progress. Had no idea that you were working on this. The topic came to my mind after attending a ceremony related to Varahi. I will start making edits on your page. Cheers. --TheMandarin (talk) 17:27, 19 January 2010 (UTC)

Deogarh[edit]

Thanks for the nomination. I have completed my first draft on Sharabha at User:Nvvchar/Sandbox 5. I need to add some more text from Dvaita arguments. I may be tempted to be biased in parphrasing it. Hence, I would request you to add it under the Bigotry section suitably. I hope you like the way I have tried to bring out a balanced view. Feel free to edit.--Nvvchar (talk) 09:11, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

I have added arguments in favour of Narasimha. Also shall i move this User:Nvvchar/Sandbox 2 to main space for joint nomination on DYK!--Nvvchar (talk) 10:09, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
I am not in a hurry at all. You have visited the place and am sure you are better suited to add value to the article.--Nvvchar (talk) 16:28, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

About the festival remplate[edit]

Sindhi community is comparatively very small than the Konkani community that is prevalent in Goa,Karnataka, Maharashtra,Kerala and abroad.If sindhi cheti chand appears there then why should not Samvatsar padvo? It represents the whole of 3.8 million people in India...is this some kind of personal grudge? no offence meant!

Nijgoykar (talk) 06:28, 13 January 2010 (UTC)y But we do not celebrate in Marathi way,there is a difference

Nijgoykar (talk) 08:13, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

BTW Ugadi in Karnataka and Andhra are not really different,they follow the same customs followed by the Marathis and the Konkanis..like eating neem leaves ,except they dun worship the flag.Nijgoykar (talk) 08:28, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Sharabha[edit]

I have extracted from all the 17 references that you provided and given the paraphrased text under a seperate section below the first set of references. You may go through and incorporate the same (to the extent considered relevant), either as part of the earlier sections or as a sepearte section. I leave it to your judgement.--Nvvchar (talk) 03:03, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Take your time. There is no urgency at all. Draft is coming out very well. I agree with your deletions on Dinosaurus. (I also felt that it may not be reliable reference but left it to your valued experince).--Nvvchar (talk) 08:38, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Redtiger, very compactly fitted. Well done. Should we not find the English equivalant names for all the indic names of weapons held in 30 hands of Sharabha, etc? I do not know many of the English equivalents, hence I have not added them--Nvvchar (talk) 02:32, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Please go ahead.--Nvvchar (talk) 05:06, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Hindu Scriptures appears at two places. May like to merge or use the word in Hindu Mythology.--Nvvchar (talk) 05:13, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
  • It is quite catchy. Well done.--Nvvchar (talk) 13:35, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Yes. Let us wait till the DYK is cleared as by then we will know the general feed back. I was pleasently surprised by the 5000 hits for Paduka since I have noticed religious articles do not recieve many hits and also hardly any reaction from our Indian users and readers. Why not Thiksey Monastery also. Can we jointly nominate for GA?--Nvvchar (talk) 05:06, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
  • OK.--Nvvchar (talk) 05:12, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Uh! The DYK hook is through. Look forward to GA upgrade. I could not sign my my nomination for the same since I could not decipher the procedure. Pl clarify.--Nvvchar (talk) 09:01, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Svarbhānu[edit]

Hi Redtigerxyz. You recently assessed Svarbhānu as mid importance. Another editor put prod on it as he found the article incomprehensible to a lay reader. I am inclined to agree with his complaint but, as you clearly know about this subject area and think the article is of some importance, I have decided to deprod it. Perhaps you can add a couple of sentences to the article providing the context required so that us lay readers can get some idea of what it is about? It might help avoid an AfD. --DanielRigal (talk) 23:47, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Sharabha warning[edit]

Footnote 28 referring to dvaita.org may be a dangerous site for your computer, according to Google. Google suspects that is a suspicious site; Norton thinks it is clean.

I had referred to that site in the past when Google identified it as clean. So I edited the footnote with that caveat.

  1. ^ "Section on "The argument between Sri Vijayîndra Tîrtha and Lingaraja". http://www.dvaita.org/scholars/vijayindra/Vijayiindra_T_2.html. Retrieved 2010-01-10. (site may harm your computer)

Raj2004 (talk) 21:43, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Please see the above user's views (in response to my comment on his talk page), on my talk page on the issue of reliability of the sources. His views are conflicting. If it is suspect then the text would need change. or his warning in the artcile should be deleted.--Nvvchar (talk) 23:06, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Redtiger The warnings are not conflicting but different. Google identifies the dvaita.org site as potentially malicious; my Norton software gives the site an okay. Nevertheless, I want to warn potential site viewers, as Google and Norton give opposite views of the site.

Raj2004 (talk) 00:53, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

OK. You are the lead. I have also expressed a view in my talk page on Sri Vaishnava interpretation of Vishnu sahasranama. Since User:Raj2004 wishes to manitain his ideology (I have no problem about it), the Vaishnava commentary/interpretation of the Sahasranama should also be suitably reflected, after the Shankaracharya's version. I leave it to you to do the needful. Also, please consider transferring some part of the text related to this controversy from the Trimurti article also since that article has gone through the "Due Process".--Nvvchar (talk) 05:15, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Please see my note on talk page of User:Raj2004 on this issue. The first observation is that the Dvaita web reference has also been used in the Trimurti article. The second view is on Shankaracharya's opinion on Sharabha as quoted on Sahasranama and my reference linked to a Srivaishnava commentary is to supplement it with the Srivaishanva view. The text to be trasferred from Trimurthi is given below--Nvvchar (talk) 05:34, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
"For example, the Dvaita school holds Vishnu alone to be the supreme God, with Shiva subordinate, and interprets the Puranas differently. For example, Vijayindra Tîrtha, a Dvaita scholar interprets the 18 puranas differently. He interprets that the Vaishnavite puranas as satvic and Shaivite puranas as tamasic and that only satvic puranas are considered to be authoritative.[1]"

Nvvchar is incorrect. I have no preference for idealogy. Please add the Srivaishnavite interpretation of Vishnu sahasrnama. Thanks, Raj2004 (talk) 12:16, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the remarks. The addition to his site was an accident. Raj2004 (talk) 12:20, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

The issue is amicably resolved. I have added a few sentences at the end of that section. You may change as it suits the article's main theme.Thanks.--Nvvchar (talk) 13:24, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the comments. I clarified that the comment on the first verse was by Parasara Bhattar or Sri Bhattar. Raj2004 (talk) 13:34, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Redtigerxyx, let's try to promote Karma in Hinduism and Hanuman to good article status. Any other helpers besides you?

Thanks,Raj2004 (talk) 02:45, 24 January 2010 (UTC) No problem. The Hanuman article is in a mess. Thanks, Raj2004 (talk) 14:54, 24 January 2010 (UTC) I don't know some of the footnotes. I agree that simplifying may be better, but for a third party with no exposure to Hinduism, it's probably easier summarizing the main idea, than characterizing it as a Vedanta view.

Thanks. Incidentally, I am expanding an article on Pushkar Lake (see darft at User:Nvvchar/Sandbox 3) at the suggestion of Dr. Bloefeld. I have come across conflicting legends related to Brahma. One legend states that Sarasvati (her temple as also her idol next to Brahma in the temple exist) was his consort (wiki article also supports this view) and another reference says that Savithri was his consort and her temple is also seen in Pushkar. Sarasvati temple is also there. Both are reliable book references (already referenced under Legend section in my draft). Will you please let me know as to what do in this situation? You are welcome to join me in expanding this article.--Nvvchar (talk) 03:45, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Let us do it. Whatever you feel as WP:Undue, delete it since we now intend to expand Brahma Temple also. I will post a note on Dr Bloefeld's page. He must be busy as he has not responded for last two days on two of our joint articles. I have been searching for references on flora and fauna of Puskhkar lake but not found suitable one's yet. Let me knwo if you find some.--Nvvchar (talk) 06:55, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes. I agree. I will create Brahma temple article on one of my many user pages and let you know. I have posted a note on Dr Bloefeld's user page.--Nvvchar (talk) 07:04, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Coast Vedda[edit]

I just finnished this article, this is not directly a Hinduism related article but shows the progression of a Hunter gatherer tribe, settling down, aquaring a new language and becoming Hindus through their own beliefs system with time. Very much like what happens in India. Taprobanus (talk) 20:15, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

I removed my words in agreement with yours. Thx Taprobanus (talk) 06:34, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Brahma temple at Pushkar[edit]

I have moved some part of text from Puskhar lake draft to User:Nvvchar/sandbox/Miscel.. In the lake artcile you can further prune it as you consider it appropriate since the first part in the Sarasvati legend and also in Savithri legend deal with first the lake. --Nvvchar (talk) 07:53, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Impressive work on Diskit and Puskkar Lake. Keep up the good work!! Dr. Blofeld White cat 14:21, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Why not make it a double article hook with Pushkar Lake?--Nvvchar (talk) 12:57, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Please go ahead. --Nvvchar (talk) 15:21, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
It refers to the introduction page 195 of this reference [1], a governmment of Rajasthan source, that covers pages 195 to 232. I have used this reference with different relevant page numbers for a number of sections. It is a pdf reference and I hope I have used the correct format for the referncing. Pl clarify.--Nvvchar (talk) 15:28, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
OK. Thanks. I checked the ch in the original Brahma temple at Pushkar article with our expanded one. It falls short by about 280 ch for 5x (1375 with spaces in the original to our 6586). May need to add more text. Consider adding the Access to Puskhar from the lake article or modify the Sarasvati text, if you consider it suitable.--Nvvchar (talk) 15:48, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Fine. I will be away from coming wednesday till Saturday next (no access to internet). Please go ahead and post it on DYK as usual. --Nvvchar (talk) 16:06, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
Dr Blofeld has done some editing on the lake. I will leave a note on his page.--Nvvchar (talk) 16:26, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
I have added text in the temple article. Now, it more than satisfies 5x expansion rule. Please see Dr Bloefld's note on my talk page. Initially he had done editing on Pushkar lake. He should also be credited. --Nvvchar (talk) 02:30, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Do I move only the temple article for now?--Nvvchar (talk) 14:09, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the nomination. I was thinking of writing an article on popular caves in Maharashtra where Vithoba was well known
I was thinking of Junnar Caves in Junnar.--Nvvchar (talk) 05:58, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Except for Elephanta Caves, which is already a fairly large article, others are worth expanding. For Junnar Caves, the original img has to be restored since the image posted in the article on Junnar is not clear. I will start, one at a time, after I return from my tour.--Nvvchar (talk) 13:03, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
OK. I will be back on 7th Feb.--Nvvchar (talk) 13:20, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. You have done an excellent job too. Would it be alright to use the second para of the lead for a hook?--Nvvchar (talk) 06:04, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
I am reading it fully to remove any minor glitches and also to find suitable hook with reliable reference. Your suggestion could form this hook...that man-eating crocodiles used to be a menace in the Puskhar lake (pictured) in Rajasthan, India, resulting in deaths of pilgrims but many consider it lucky to be eaten by crocodiles? If you have some other formulation, pl let me know. I will give credit to Dr. Blofeld since he suggested this subject for expansion and also did some initial editing--Nvvchar (talk) 06:52, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Posted on DYK. You may like to add an alternative hook.--Nvvchar (talk) 08:44, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I will post it on GA in the next one hour. By the way, the Junagarh Fort article is now under review from today. The reviwer has not made any specific obseravations but marked each itme with tag sugesting some changes. How do I proceed since I am new to this procedure? Can you help in review?--Nvvchar (talk) 12:13, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
GA nomination done. Have a look to see if I have done it right under Geography section.ination done.--Nvvchar (talk) 12:36, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, please. I have started Junnar Caves. I will let you know the user page after i finish the first draft and post it.--Nvvchar (talk) 16:08, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Salimgarh Fort[edit]

Will you please do a peer review of this article before I post it for GA status?--Nvvchar (talk) 14:01, 27 January 2010 (UTC) I will see if I can find more to write on struture of the fort. I have added some more text to Pushkar Lake and also revised the text of Brahma temple to gereally match with the legend of the lake.--Nvvchar (talk) 08:06, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

I thank you for your precise assessment and your high value suggestions. I am going to nominate the article for FA very soon. Do you have any additional suggestions? What improvements are needed for being FA? --WIMYV? (talk) 06:40, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Wendy Doniger[edit]

Redtiger, take a look at the debate on the Talk on Wendy Doniger. Goethan keeps on removing the criticism section. I agree that the current criticism section is not NPOV so I have revised it with counteropposing views. Please take a look. Raj2004 (talk) 15:30, 28 January 2010 (UTC) No problem, Redtiger I understand. I tried to construct a NPOV but keep on getting shot down. Thanks for the help.

DYK for Sharabha[edit]

Updated DYK query On January 29, 2010, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Sharabha, which you created or substantially expanded. You are welcome to check how many hits your article got while on the front page (here's how, quick check ) and add it to DYKSTATS if it got over 5,000. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Wikiproject: Did you know? 06:00, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

I added one final interpretation for Sharabha. Regards, Raj2004 (talk) 14:44, 30 January 2010 (UTC) Hi, Redtiger, why did you remove the Ramnuja web site? I used that site to find the full name of the scholar C. V. Radhakrishna Sastri, because his full name is not given in the site by Narasimhan Krishnamachari, who simply calls him Radhakrishna Sastri. Sastri had written a treatise with the various commentaries on Vishnu sahasranama in 1986, which is not mentioned in the current version. Thanks for your tips on nomination procedure. Raj2004 (talk) 16:39, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I was not sure if we needed a site to support the full name of Mr. Sastri. Raj2004 (talk) 16:45, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Gangadar[edit]

What is the meaning of Dar in Gangadar, a name ? Thanks Taprobanus (talk) 23:26, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

In Tamil, these Sanskrit terms and names become Gangatharan, Thamotharan, so looks like from Dhar (one who upholds) we get Thara(n) where n is masculine marker in Tamil, Malayalam and meadival Kannada. Now Tharan itself has become a name under further reduction, so I am trying to reach into its etymology to understand what could have been the original meaning in Sanskrit. Thanks Taprobanus (talk) 13:54, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
Could it be 'Ganga' plus 'Dhara' forming "Gangadhar"?--Nvvchar (talk) 16:16, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
What is Dhara ? thx Taprobanus (talk) 18:27, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
Dhara is a stream. The meaning of Sahsra Dhara is "thousand fold stream". --Nvvchar (talk) 05:45, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Gaṇgādhara (गंगाधर) is Shiva's name, used as a male name. Gaṇgādhāra (गंगाधारा) means a stream of the river Ganga, not used as a personal name.--Redtigerxyz Talk 12:14, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

Junnar caves[edit]

Please see the draft here User:Nvvchar/sandbox/Miscel.. The original text is not fully paraphrased. If I find internet link during my tour, I will then do the the needful. You may like to add pictures and more references. I have tried to rectify PUshkar GA nomination. --Nvvchar (talk) 16:46, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the intervention on the Junagarh Fort GA page. I retuned yesterday night itself and made some small editing. I am trying to find suitable primary sources to expand on the fort structure. I have not been successful so far. Can you suggest some? I have also shifted the access information to the Bikaner article. Any suggestions from you will be helpful. As regards the Junnar article, your suggestions are fine. We can expand all the articles individually, since Junnar as such does not have any caves. You know the lie of the land better than me. Thanks.--Nvvchar (talk) 06:43, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
Given the large references, do you want me to work on Lenyadri caves on your Titwal user page? What about Elephenta Caves? Right now I am bit busy with my professional work.

February GA Sweeps update[edit]

Progress as of January 2010

Thanks to everyone's efforts to the GA Sweeps process, we are currently over 95% done with around 130 articles left to be swept! Currently there are over 50 members participating in Sweeps, that averages out to about 3 articles per person! If each member reviews an article once a week this month (or several!), we'll be completely finished. At that point, awards will be handed out to reviewers. Per my message last month, although we did not review 100 articles last month, I still made a donation of $90 (we had 90 reviews completed/initiated) to Wikipedia Forever on behalf of all GA Sweeps reviewers. I would like to thank everyone's efforts for last month, and ask for additional effort this month so we can be finished. I know you have to be sick of seeing these updates (as well as Sweeps itself) by now, so please do consider reviewing a few articles if you haven't reviewed in a while. If you have any questions about reviews or Sweeps let me know and I'll be happy to get back to you. Again, thank you for taking the time to help with the process, I appreciate your efforts! --Happy editing! Nehrams2020 (talkcontrib) 02:44, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Dattatreya[edit]

The correct name for the yajna pit is the homa. May I have your assistance in the appropriate inclusion of both?
B9 hummingbird hovering (talkcontribs) 13:14, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the praise. I would welcome working with you. I have encountered your burning red Tygertrail before in my wiki-wanderings. I am simultaneously working on a number of articles that are inter-related: charnel ground, Dattatreya, Avadhuta Gita and Avadhuta amongst others. I often work alone and generally in conflict, I would welcome the new experience of together. I would appreciate assistance with Avadhuta Gita principally, how is your Sanskrit and Devanagari?
Blessings in blood
B9 hummingbird hovering (talkcontribs) 13:32, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
Avadhuta Gita my friend is a text that has been significantly neglected by Western scholarship as far as I have been able to so far nail. Your assistance in textual analysis, identifying rhyming metre, dating text, iconography of Datta would be most welcome. Importantly, Datta as ghoul as aghori, is very important. Making it clear that aghori are avadhuta is VERY important. Are you Shaivite, Vaishnava, Smarta, Twice-born, nondual, Nath? BTW, did you notice my usage of GanpatiTibetan.jpg 'Danse Macabre' in charnel ground? Have you read Candi Sukuh?

Elephanta Island[edit]

I have started expanding this artcile. I did it partly today. I find that you have also started working on it. There is one gazette reference which gives large details of the Elephanta. Some of the text would need to be included suitably. I have added some part of it in the Geography (merged the topology section with it) and History sections but more needs to be done. It will take a few days to complete this articile if the text from the gazette reference is to be abridged suitably. I am glad to see that you have added the cropped version of the plan of the island (useful image to unerastand the lie of the main cave images). I tried but was not succesful so I reverted it to the original. I have also simultaneously started working on the caves. Did a bit on Lenyadri and also Junnar.--Nvvchar (talk) 15:08, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

I have red your edits and addtions. PLease this flickr site [2] for free images. Since I have not seen the caves, I can't give names to the imgs. Hence I have not uploaded them. May be you can do it as a Mumbaikar. I will add text for the subsections from the gazette reference later in the evening. --Nvvchar (talk) 09:26, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Can you identify the images with the subsections and post them for me to see if they fit in with the text since I am not able to relate the imgs as availabe, to the text. Thanks.--Nvvchar (talk) 14:16, 12 February 2010 (UTC)
Please hold your edits for 10 minutes. My text insertions have been blocked. I will post them now with a slight rearrangement also (marrigae text got mixed up) for all the ten panels.--Nvvchar (talk) 12:58, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
Done all ten panels. I would appreciate if you could add the west and east wing deatils. I will edit the units at the end after all inputs are completed. Thanks.--Nvvchar (talk) 13:12, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I was thinkng of Chitradurga Fort and Chittorgarh Fort. Can you do peer review pl. Elephanta Caves is shaping well. I added some text in the morning. I have been busy with official work and not able to look at other caves. --Nvvchar (talk) 16:03, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

I know you are busy and have your own projects but I would really appreciate a bit of your time. I just added a cite about Dattatreya being the adi-guru of the Aghori Sambhradaya on Wikipedia. I am working on the Avadhuta Gita on Wikisource principally at the moment and my Sanskritic grammatical knowledge and construction is god-awful. Do you know any easy reference tables online how I can work out declension of verbs and case-endings of nominal stems? My reading is really etymologically heavy and I need a stronger grounding in grammatical structure. Even if when you can be bothered just say such and such is Dative singular blah, blah and I should be able to work it out arse backwards. But with your assistance I can be sure in my analysis. Let me know if I may assist you some way in return as well. And if my English gloss of the Sanskrit is really an outrageous perversion of the original please whack me.
B9 hummingbird hovering (talkcontribs) 12:22, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Wikisource has difference rules. There is no significant textual analysis by any of the translators. Hence, why I would like to do it. I am also engaging it as an opportunity to deepen my knowledge of Sanskrit which is already word rich but grammatically poor. I will not ply my commentary on Wikisource back into Wikipedia either, that would be inappropriate. I just added charnel ground to the article you are working on. Please link her with it where you can. The charnel ground subsumes the cremation ground. I know it was a bit nordy to add charnel ground I just felt I would push it under your nose once again. The charnel ground is a fascinating place that cuts across traditions which is why I like spending time there.

GA Sweeps Completed![edit]

Thanks to everyone's amazing efforts in February, we have reviewed all of the articles and are now finished with Sweeps! There are still about 30 articles currently on hold, and once those reviews are completed, I will send you a final message about Sweeps process stats including the total number of articles that were passed and failed. If you have one of these open reviews, be sure to update your count when the review is completed so I can compile the stats. You can except to receive your award for reviewing within the next week or two. Although the majority of the editors did not start Sweeps at the beginning in August 2007 (myself included), over 50 editors have all come together to complete a monumental task and improve many articles in the process. I commend you for sticking with this often challenging task and strengthening the integrity of the GA WikiProject as well as the GAs themselves. I invite you to take a break from reviewing (don't want you to burn out!) and then consider returning/starting to review GANs and/or contribute to GAR reviews. With your assistance, we can help bring the backlog down to a manageable level and help inspire more editors to improve articles to higher classes and consider reviewing themselves. Again, thank you for putting up with difficult reviews, unhappy editors, numerous spam messages from me, and taking the time to help with the process, I appreciate your efforts! --Happy editing!

Namaste. I see you have been very active and accomplishing a lot since we last talked. Congratulations on your achievements!

Hmm, an interesting conflict on No.1 with this (the source for the SVG). Except for 10-13, the Handleman/Shulman key seems superior (better detail, the Sanskrit names), but it would be nice to know which one is correct for No.1.

File:St6-klingon blood.png's license says it's usable on Wikipedia--meaning any page. —Eekerz (t) 20:30, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

OK, we'll have the discussion on my talk page since you replied there... —Eekerz (t) 03:39, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Dear Tiger,

thank you so much for your kind prayer in response to hearing of my wife and I's sad loss.

It means a lot to me to hear this from you.

I am back editing again now, and hope to be able to support your excellent work again some time.

I return blessings to you on behalf of my wife and I,

What a happy coincidence! I was typing on your page, while you were typing on mine! :))
Yes, indeed, I will look again at Iravan. I remember I read a lot of the main source on the topic, and did some work at the lead. I never quite finished work though. Please expect me to chip away at the article over the next week.
Iravan is particularly fascinating for a gender theologian like myself, and a figure I'd not normally have the benefit of studying were it not for your work. So thank you very much for working on this article. :)
