Oct 16[edit]

Roland zh, Romila Thapar isn't a scientist. You are unnecessarily adding that category. I'm reverting your edit. Crawford88 (talk) 11:09, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

I am not seeing any basis for a dispute here, to be honest. @Roland zh: Thapar is a historian. Why do you insist on adding the "scientists" category? You could make an argument for "social scientist," perhaps, but this is honestly not the place to have a "history is a science" argument, if that's what you're going for. Vanamonde (talk) 11:58, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
I don't insist, User:Vanamonde93 {fixed Roland zh (talk) 13:56, 26 October 2016 (UTC), sorry}, just edited accordingly sub-categories of lots of biographies of 20th-century people from India, among them physicians, physicists, chemists, writers etc, educators, biologists, engineers, astronomers, scientists in general, and historians, recently... Mrs. Thapas was one of hundreds or rather thousands affected biographies within this task, that's all :) Roland zh (talk) 12:19, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
@Roland zh: FYI, similar categories have been added to articles on other Indian historians and archaeologists including Hasmukh Dhirajlal Sankalia, Amalananda Ghosh, V. Venkayya, Suraj Bhan, et al. Can you bulk remove all "scientist" categories from articles that have a "historian" category?--Cpt.a.haddock (talk) (please ping when replying) 12:30, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi, 'bulk-remove', no as i'm just a wikignome missing any additional rights/tools, but 'by hand' so you insist ;-) Honestly, is that really such a problem? If yes, i'll remove within about a week (there's an offline-life, too), Roland zh (talk) 13:26, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
@Roland zh: I used the word "insist" because you added it back after Crawford had removed it once. I appreciate the wiki-gnoming, but if the "scientist" category is being added willy-nilly to biographies of historians, I think you might need to take it a little more slowly when editing the sub-categories. Vanamonde (talk) 13:46, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
I'm sorry, Vanamonde, I did not remark that User:Crawford88 removed before, as today I might been willy-nilly at that and two other 'surprising incidents' (since 2007 never so many 'incidents' as today, really), and addinally travelling by trai. But usually, now at a my 'wiki-workstation', I cross-check again and again (see related version-histories since March 2016), and took much time to 're-fine' the related Category:Indian scientists sub-categories since spring 2016 when that tiny wikignoming started, and soon will be done. Sorry about that misunderstanding, and closing kindly regards to you all, Roland zh (talk) 13:56, 26 October 2016 (UTC) [mofified Roland zh (talk) 14:02, 26 October 2016 (UTC)]

Personal life[edit]

There needs to be some mention of her background, including her prominent relatives such as Romesh Thapar (brother), General Pran Nath Thapar (uncle), Karan Thapar (cousin), Valmik Thapar (nephew) etc.

Romesh Thapar#Personal life and background and Romesh Thapar#Personal life can be used as templates. Factual info. from this article can also be used I suppose, ignoring the additional commentary therein. -- — Preceding unsigned comment added by 120.57.4.237 (talkcontribs)
