Abhang[edit]

The article on Abhang is a stub though it is a part of Classical Musics. I am planning on Adding more Data to it, I would request editors versed in the topic to once verify the additions. Psgs123xyz (talkcontribs) 16:29 8th December 2014

Identifying two goddesses[edit]

Hi, Could you please help identifying these two goddesses? Thanks in advance, Yann (talk) 15:15, 26 December 2014 (UTC)

Yann, They seem to be Rajasthani folk goddesses, not Durga. Even the images titled knights could be Rajasthani folk gods like Gogaji, Ramdev Pir, Veer Teja etc. --Redtigerxyz Talk 18:14, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Neelkanth temple, Alwar district[edit]

Hi, I started this article. I have quite a number of pictures, but help is needed for the text. Thanks, Yann (talk) 01:31, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Issues on Hinduism[edit]

The main article, Hinduism, in its current state contains a lot of errors, including the misrepresentation of sources. It requires a strict review. Kindly view the conversation at Talk:Hinduism#Article issues. Delibzr (talk) 23:51, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Opened a Rfc now. Delibzr (talk) 06:54, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Page for upacharas?[edit]

Reading Namaste, I came across the term "upacharas" with no explanation. There is no page for it. I linked it as [[upachara]]s, producing the redlink upacharas to at least show that it should be linked.

I am not a Hindu or particularly familiar with South Asian customs,* and certainly not qualified to even create a stub, so I'm bringing the matter here. Namaste.* --Thnidu (talk) 19:59, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

* Well, one or two. :-)


  • Thanks for pointing that out, Thnidu. I have created a quick and dirty stub at upachara. Hopefully other will help expand, improve, categorize etc. Pinging @Redtigerxyz: who is knowledgeable and active in the area. Cheers. Abecedare (talk) 21:22, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Thnidu, upachara has multiple meaning. Can you please throw in some light on the context/article in question. --Redtigerxyz Talk 04:50, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Redtigerxyz, as I said in my original comment in this §, I found the word in Namaste. It's in the 2nd ¶ of § Namaste#Uses. As Abecedare says, they've created a stub for it. --Thnidu (talk) 01:02, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Thnidu, sorry I missed it. When I read Namaste, I thought it as a greeting, rather than an article. Abecedare's article is accurate and solves the problem for now. --Redtigerxyz Talk 06:06, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
