  • Giving the issues in few minutes. Thanks! TheSpecialUser TSU 10:29, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

I fear that a lot of work should be done on the article in order to get this upto GA standards and I'm extremely sorry that this'll be a quick fail. Here are the primary reasons for the failure:

  • There is no lead. Per WP:LEAD, it should be a summary of the article and everything in the lead should be covered in details in the article. Right now there is no lead
  • Ref issues - there are plenty of them but all of them are not well formatted and 90%+ of them are not readable. They will require ISBN or any link so that the material cited could be verified.
  • I cite few grammatical errors in the prose as well as copyediting is required from someone who is expert in the topic
  • Despite of 80+ refs, many facts remain unsourced in the article. If you are aiming for GA, each and every fact should cite at least one ref to reliable source using well formatted citation.

I appreciate the efforts but unfortunately, this article is not near to GA status; these issues cannot be addressed easily. Once addressed the concerns above, anyone can re-nominate it. Thank you. TheSpecialUser TSU 10:42, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
