Wikiproject Law[edit]

Removed Wikiproject law tag ... I hope no one has any objections ...Saggod 10:10, 25 September 2007 (UTC)


This article doesn't need cleanup. I have removed the tag. If anyone has any legitamate reson to repost it, please explain on this page or my talk page. Editorofthewiki (talk) 23:34, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Possible vandalism or erroneously editing[edit]

Erroneous editing, probably vandalism! - Here by User:, now corrected! (Ekabhishek (talk) 07:22, 20 September 2008 (UTC))

Restoring "needs additional citations" tag, adding NPOV tag[edit]

The article is full of non-neutral praise, unsourced facts, and unreliable sources. Some are dead links, some are interviews with Baba Amte himself, and one source is given as "as explained by his wife Sadhanatai Amte". None of these are reliable sources by Wikipedia's rules. Please read Wikipedia:Reliable sources, and don't remove the tags before doing something about it. I'll look a little more, but if these issues aren't fixed to comply with Wikipedia:Neutral point of view and Wikipedia:Reliable sources soon, I'll stub the article. Wikipedia articles must be held to encyclopedic standards. Also, Abhijeet Safai, please look at a few other biography articles and don't remove standard features like the birth and death dates in the lead section. All biography pages have those in the first sentence. It doesn't make any difference that there's an infobox. Bishonen | talk 11:09, 4 June 2013 (UTC).

Dear Bishonen, Thanks. I will not remove the standard features. I shall see that more and more reliable sources are added to this article. Thanks. --Abhijeet Safai (talk) 05:58, 6 June 2013 (UTC)
That's great. I'll look forward to it. Bishonen | talk 06:15, 6 June 2013 (UTC).

Links to be added[edit]

These are some of the links which can be added. Thanks. --Abhijeet Safai (talk) 09:00, 6 June 2013 (UTC)


I think that many inspirational quotes by Baba Amte can be added to the article. We can create an article by the name of Baba Amte as well. I shall do it soon as I get time. Thanks. --Abhijeet Safai (talk) 12:04, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Neutrality tag?[edit]

I would like to discuss about the tag here as mentioned in the tag. Thanks. --Abhijeet Safai (talk) 12:05, 27 August 2013 (UTC) I do not find the material non neutral, hence I will be removing the tag soon. Thanks. --Abhijeet Safai (talk) 10:45, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Abhijeet Safai Agree. remove the tag.Prodigyhk (talk) 11:49, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Other awards list too long[edit]

The list seems too long. Can it be split in 2 or 3? How? Please help. --Abhijeet Safai (talk) 07:01, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Baba Amte mentioned by 14th Dalai Lama in teaching[edit]

About fifty minutes into session five of the fourth year of the four-year cycle of teachings on the 18 Great Stages of the Path teachings, the 14th Dalai Lama speaks of Baba Amte, to whom he says he gave some of his 1989 Nobel Peace Prize money. He also talks of visiting his ashram. is the link. Hope this helps, or at least doesn't hurt! ༺།།ༀ་ཨཱཿ་ཧཱུྃ།།འཚེར།།xeltifon།།སར་ཝ་མང་ག་ལམ།།༻  {say it} { ζ(3) } {did it} 14:44, 24 September 2016 (UTC)
