I've started cleaning up this article, I've added a couple of references already - but still does not assert notability. I will fix it up within the next week. Any help is welcome! - Ozzykhan 20:42, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Found some good third party verifiable sources that should be included in article:
All American Speakers
CNN interview transcript
Already included: UNICEF USA -- Ozzykhan 20:57, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

There's a Forbes article from Jan 2001 - I saw that here and there's an alumni piece from Kellogg[1]- so why not deprod it now? --Mereda 12:41, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Well you just have to add the Frobes reference into the article. I had the Kellogg one in there until someone changed it up and removed it in the process. - Ozzykhan 15:10, 7 February 2007 (UTC)
Reads as standard marketing put out by I guess her blog. It is her father that is notable Deepak the kids try to gain notability by association. While people have not decided she is notable will take away the stuff which is not established. Smalltinsquirrel (talk) 09:53, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh and I just noticed her big claim to fame IntentBlog doesn't exist. A lady who is chasing the starlight with a vengeance I see Smalltinsquirrel (talk) 09:55, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
The Deepak Chopra and UNICEF references need to go out. I Dont know how Smalltinsquirrel (talk) 10:01, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Removed speedy. Regardless as to her father is, she has been the subject of articles in such WP:RS's as The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times (pay article), and The Times of India, to name just a few. Given that, this article can't be summarily deleted. If prod'er wishes to pursue, I really believe this needs to go the WP:AfD route. (talk) 21:42, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
  • The way it looks, the person cannot be notable. I suggest to write what you wrote above (the links) into the article. Her father should come later in the article once she is proved to be notable. Did you see the dead link in the article?? Update or remove it. There are hundreds of thousands who are superior to her in the field and they are not on Wikipedia!!! --Athos, Porthos, and Aramis (talk) 23:00, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

--As for Articles for Deletion status, whoever placed that notice failed to create an entry for this article on the Articles for Deletion section, as should have been done, so there's no space there for users to comment on the merits of deletion. As for whether or not the subject is worthy of an entry, if the criterion is that the article be useful to users, then the article should be kept. I looked up the article for more information on the subject after seeing her discussed (on her own merits, with no mention of her father) in the New York Times. As Google comes up with half a million results for "Mallika Chopra," it seems she's got enough of a presence in the world that a lot of people may want more information about her--the article is useful. Even the basic information now given, that she's a writer about family, etc., gave me more information than I had before and was useful to me, though of course a bit more would be helpful. The offense the previous poster apparently takes at the presence of this article (the authoritative "cannot," hyperbole and triple exclamation points) is so out of proportion that it suggests the writer is upset about something that's got nothing to do with the article. I've got no ax to grind here: I came to this article because I'd never heard of the subject until I saw her quoted in the Times and wanted to know who she was. (talk) 06:43, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Explosion of Citations[edit]

Whatever the status of deletion, while here we should try to polish this page up. The last sentence in the main paragraph has an insane burst of citations. This should be cleaned up and the sources either pared down or distributed to their correct places, but I wanted to first check if someone had a reason for 16 citations to be listed after one sentence?

She also blogs for Beliefnet and Huffington Post.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17]
