  • @Gazal world: [1] [2] These blogs contains more information and her images. Urvish Kothari is trustworthy writer/journalist but can you verify source of the dates? Need to check legal status of images for upload. Can you find her PD images?-Nizil (talk) 12:24, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
  • This source provides different year of Sharda Mehta's marriage. This is one of the authentic and well-acclaimed book in Gujarati literature. -Gazal world (talk) 21:37, 21 February 2019 (UTC)
Sorry. My mistake. The book has a same year (1898) but there are a scanning problems. Pages are not in order. -Gazal world (talk) 21:44, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

  • The hook is not hooky. Something better, please. WBGconverse 08:34, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
  • @Winged Blades of Godric: Well, that was the most trivial/hooky fact I found about her. Can you suggest one? It is difficult but I still suggest one more.-Nizil (talk) 11:38, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
I actually kind of liked ALT0, but eh. Another possibility could be to combine ALT0 and ALT1:
  • ALT2: ... that Indian social worker Sharda Mehta, one of the first two women graduates of modern-day Gujarat, picketed in front of liquor shops?
With that said, I am not very fond of ALT1: @Nizil Shah: Could you find sources that expand on exactly why she picketed in front of liquor shops? If that can be done, that might work as a hook. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 10:33, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
@Winged Blades of Godric and Narutolovehinata5: I could not find direct reason in the sources that say why Sharda Mehta picketed liquor shops. But during the disobedience movement, the protesters picketed liquor shops with the aim of "reducing the evils of drinking as well as preventing the Government from raising income through excise duty on alcoholic drinks." as per these sources:[3][4]. It was the important feature of the disobedience movement and the picketing were frequently led by women. ALT2 combination is OK if you prefer. ALT0 was the best I could find. Any other suggestion is also welcome. Regards,-Nizil (talk) 11:32, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Full review needed; the ALT2 hook looks workable, and even if it ultimately is not, the nomination needs a complete review. BlueMoonset (talk) 01:46, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol redirect vote 4.svg Article is new enough and long enough at the time of the nomination. The article is free of close paraphrasing, the article is adequately sources, is neutral, and well-written. A QPQ has been done. As I proposed ALT2, I will leave the choice of hook to another reviewer; however, the fact about her picketing doesn't have an inline citation. My impression is that it uses the Rajgor reference as a source, but DYK requires hook fact sentences to have an inline citation. Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 09:42, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5:, thank you for the review. I have added an inline citation as well as a note.-Nizil (talk) 14:00, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
