Makara (Hindu mythology)[edit]

I have been expanding the article Makara (Hindu mythology) and notice that it is included in {{WikiProject Paranormal} and {{WikiProject Cryptozoology}. I believe these categories are entirely inappropriate for this article and propose to remove them. Does this group object to this? Unless I recieve strong arguments supporting Makara as Cryptozoology and Paranormal I will remove those templates from Talk:Makara_(Hindu_mythology). Thanks for considering this.-Marcus334 (talk) 06:03, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

You are right. Removed. --Redtigerxyz Talk 06:39, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Thank You.-Marcus334 (talk) 16:32, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

There is a part where Varuna is mentioned as the deva of winds. As Varuna is identified with seas and water, and Vayu is the wind god, I think someone miswrote that and I want to correct it. Anyone opposes? Thank you!--TangoVirtud (talk) 10:34, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

This article title needs to be changed[edit]

This article now includes not only the Hindu mythology but also the Sinhala mythology. Therefore the main heading should be just "Makara" and then the first part has to be titled as "Hindu mythology". Then the second part now appears under the title "Makara (Sinhala Mythology)" should be changed as "Sinhala mythology". Chan-anand 20:16, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
