The article says his birthdate is "Born: December 31, 1900/January 1, 1901". Which is the right one? - Mayuresh 16:44, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Possibly Malicious Content / Citation Required[edit]

The following statement in this article requires a citation from a reliable source. The statement, and especially the way it has been worded, sounds malicious, is derogatory if untrue and is irrelevant in any case, and should not be included unless backed by a reliable and verifiable source.

Yesubai belonged to Devdasi tradition and was Ganesh Bhat's keep, so Dinanath was the son of a Karhade Brahmin, but he was not a Brahmin himself.

Citation Still Required After Change[edit]

Cross-references do not seem to match for the following statement:

Ganesh Bhat-Nawathe, a priest and Yesubai Rane, a handmaiden of the deity Mangesh were his parents.

The Wiki article for Lata Mangeshkar claims that the original family name was Hardikar, which Mr. Deenanath subsequently changed to Mangeshkar for want of a prominent name. How can one's family name be Hardikar when the parents' family names are Nawathe and Rane respectively?

Also, the following sentences become irrelevant to the topic (especially in view of this challenge, but even otherwise):

Ganesh Bhat's legal family later changed the surname to Abhisheki because they were in-charge of pooja and abhishek at the local temple. Balasaheb Abhisheki was the son of Ganesh Bhat and his legal wife. Jitendra Abhisheki, Balabhau's son, also became a famous figure in music as composer and singer.

Mentioning Caste[edit]

Dear Editors!
There has been a discussion on India Portal related to mentioning of caste of subjects. The point is that mentioning caste of people, who have nothing to do with their caste, is found to be unnecessary by few editors. Hence the caste of the subject person needs to be deleted from the biography. I am not deleting the caste as of now but am only posting this here so that the regular editors of this article are well aware of it beforehand and no edit-wars take place. For details of discussion held on the portal please refer Wikipedia_talk:Noticeboard_for_India-related_topics#Mentioning_caste_of_Individuals. Your views if any are welcome there or even here.
And.... as the reasons of exclusion of caste pointed out were "irrelavant to notability of subject person", "privacy of the subject person", "inclusion of caste is like branding individuals", etc. other information included in the article which also fall under these cases will also be removed after discussions. Examples of it included religion, non-notable spouse's and children's and parents' information, previous occupation, lived in places, non-notability related educational qualification, etc.
Your views on this are also welcome here or at the India portal. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 16:57, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Not here, please. There is a community discussion taking place at WT:INB and I would advise people to read the entire discussion before forming an opinion because the above summary is incorrect. Nothing more need be said here. - Sitush (talk) 02:19, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
