I had downloaded the video, but is unable to upload it. It's getting interrupted in between. I will try again when I have time.Chanakyathegreat (talk) 12:28, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, It's not possible to add the video in YT. It gets rejected. So the only option is watch in google video or download it from there.Chanakyathegreat (talk) 10:33, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Bharat Rakshak

Thanks! I found it when I was working through the backlog because this version led to it being categorized here as an article with original research. I realised there were some sources and it could be a good article/stub so I added what I could. I admit, I'm entirely unfamiliar with the subject so there may be information I missed. Is it a pet project of yours? Travellingcari (talk) 21:05, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

I remembered I'd found additional sources if you/know anyone who can read Russian or Chinese. I have fun working on articles I'm not too familiar with because I often learn something Travellingcari (talk) 21:41, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Oh well I tried, there seems to be an agenda at work, and I'm not familiar enough with the topic to even counter it. I'm going to let this one be. Travellingcari (talk) 22:06, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

It seems like you have access to good content, and waiting out a cooling off period sounds good for all, including your own sanity! Please let me know if I can help in any way with your work on the article. Travellingcari (talk) 00:19, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi Sniperz! I have a bit of a favor to ask you. I came across Blathur as I worked through the back log. Unfortunately the article is in such a state that I can't made heads or tales of it and Google isn't much help. I recognise that India is an extremely large country and not everyone is familiar with all parts of the country, but I thought maybe through your other WP contributions, you might know someone who could help if you can't yourself. Thanks! Travellingcari (talk) 19:40, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

I just saw that and left a note on the AfD, thanks for your assistance. I couldn't tell whether there was anything salvageable amid the mess of "content". Have a good day (? not sure what time time difference is, it's currently 4:15 PM here in New York. Travellingcari (talk) 21:16, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
I just saw the creator's name, which matches the article. Odd. This article says "bored kid" more loudly than "encyclopedia" anyway. NY is chilly, average is about 4-6 degrees Celsius but we've had some odd weather (closer to 20 degrees) and relatively little snow, knock on wood. Are you behind or ahead? It's still Thursday here (unfortunately ;) ). NY is also very pretty -- especially at Christmas. Have you ever been to NY or the US? I've never been to India but it's on my list of places I really want to go. Travellingcari (talk) 21:29, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
What do you want to study? I'm currently finishing my graduate work in tourism development at NYU's SCPS and I really enjoy it, although I'm worried about the economy. I'm also working at New York City's official tourism marketing agency doing cultural programming, which I enjoy. Never been to Sri Lanka or Malaysia, closest I've come is Singapore. One day! Travellingcari (talk) 21:41, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
Electronics always sounds like a good job, good prospects and hopefully you could attend conferences or work internationally. Tourism is good and strong, but we'll see what happens with discretionary income, although some of our markets have rebounded. It can be hard to balance the two, especially at times like now when it's just gone 5pm and I want to go home but have class until 8:30 pm. If I don't catch you before I leave, I'll touch base later. Travellingcari (talk) 22:09, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
Yeah someone mentioned the article from Hindu, I was just surprised that a town which is claimed as a strong hold has such little coverage. I wonder whether there may be non-English sources, although I've found in the course that a lot of India-based information meant to be accessible to others is as available in English as not to help overcome the interstate language barriers and to reach internationally. It makes research for school as well as Wiki easier. :) What holiday are you celebrating? Travellingcari (talk) 04:01, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Vacations are great, no matter what the reason :) While I generally agree with the WIki guideline that all villages are notable, this is one of those times where it's not so great --- we shouldn't have to dig so hard to find *something* to put in an article just for the sake of having an article. It shoud/could be deleted until someone wants to write it. There will never be an article on every single village in the world and I think not deleting for policy is a bad reason to keep this one, but them's the rules ;) Off to work , TGIF! Travellingcari (talk) 12:37, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Just giving you a heads up that I essentially blanked Blathur, save for the info box you added since it's the only content we have. There was nothing salvageable in the previous article so I figure when/if sources are found, we can go from scratch. Hope you've had a good week! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Travellingcari (talkcontribs) 22:13, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

    • TGIF indeed, well almost. It's 10:30 PM Thurs here. I'm glad we have a long weekend here for President's Day --- although it will be a long three months until our next long weekend Travellingcari (talk) 03:32, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Image required

Sniperz, is it possible for you to get some good images of LCA Tejas or some other images to be used in military section of the India article. Since it's an article about India and Indian designed, developed product will be much better. Like the Tejas. Thank you.Chanakyathegreat (talk) 04:01, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Sanskrit vs Devanagari

Hi, I don't really get what you mean. The terms are written in Devanagari script, so it should be (Devanagari: ...). In Sanskrit or Hindi that would mean (...). With reference to your examples, names derived from Punjabi should be written in Gurmukhi script; likewise names from Malayalam ahould be written in Malayalam script. I understand that the reason these are inserted is to provide the actual writing of the word in the language it is from. So whether it is from Punjabi, Malayalam or Tamil, it should be in its native script and not necessarily Hindi. From what I know writings should be identified by the writing system. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks and have a nice day.  S3000  ☎ 11:25, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Well I get your point. You prioritise ease of understanding over facts (which others may find difficult to understand) which seems logical. I've reverted my edits to the Agni and Prithvi missile pages to the earlier form. I leave it to you if you wanna make the text in script link to the script in question, though theres no compulsion to do so from my side. Have a nice day!  S3000  ☎ 15:58, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you, I was unaware of his biography, and if I was I would have been more careful in evaluating the source. In this case, however, I think on reflection that certain points still apply: First, thatthe ICHR is not an academic body, but a political one; second, that the reliability of a source depends not only on the author but also on the publisher; and third, that this is being used for an unusual claim, which should be impeccably sourced, and preferably to a peer-reviewed academic press or journal. If no such source is available for a subject that has been amply studied, I think that it should not be included. (And definitely doesn't belong in the lead, but that's another matter.)

Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Relata refero (talk) 11:58, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Forest Rights Act

SniperZ, could you take a look at the Forest Rights Act page? It's in pretty bad shape, and far beyond of my area of knowledge of India, tribla groups, or environmental law. It might be beyond yours too, but perhaps you know another editor who would be good at improving this page. The main problems I saw are wikification, and the fact that the Lead doesn't really make it clear what nation the Act is from, nor does the title. There may also be POV problems inthe text. THe good think is that is has a lot of citations, which is geneally something these types of article lack. I've posted a generic {{WPINDIA}} project tag on the talk page, and a fairly caustic note there to try to make a point with the creator, but no malice is intended by me in the note. Thanks. - BillCJ (talk) 17:28, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Hello, may I ask if the word 'Sitara' is in any Sanskrit dictionary? I.e. is it a Sanskrit word? This is because there seems to be a problem on the HJT-36 Sitara page, where some users are claiming the word is either Persian or from Hindi/Urdu. I can't verify as Hindi/Sanskrit isn't my native language. Thanks.  S3000  ☎ 17:47, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for stepping in on this "disagreement". I have no knowledge/background whatsoever on the languages involved, so the most I could do was to add a hidden note encouraging discussion. Hopefully this can be settled without any more reverts. I think your solition to just give the word as Hindi and leave it at that is best, and I hope it will be accepted. Thanks again. - BillCJ (talk) 03:09, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
