Adjustments after Ankur Article Creation
I have created an article (Ankur (film)) intended to thoroughly analyze Ankur. It is not yet complete; I intend to add much more to it. However, I believe it has more information than was previously listed here.
Therefore, I have removed all information pertaining to Ankur on this page, and the page now links to my page at the first mention of the film. Here is the original text, in case anyone disagrees with my edit:
"Founder of the Hyderabad Film Society and a former Ad Filmmaker, Ankur, his first feature film, is set in rural South India where Surya, a zamindar's son arrives from the city to oversee his father's estate. Bored and sexually frustrated, he seduces his attractive maidservant, wife of a deaf-mute labourer. The discovery of the maidservant's pregnancy and the arrival of Surya's wife who senses her husband's involvement bring matters to a head. The film is memorable for its engrossing details of rural life and its exposure of the feudal system that is brutal and indifferent and is helped by a powerful film debut by Shabana Azmi as the maidservant. Ankur not only won several awards including the National Award for Shabana but also had a good showing at the Box Office." --Kuaichik 03:46, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
It says he won the Palme D'Or in 1976, when in fact Scorsese's Taxi Driver won it in 1976. and how the heck did he win the Golden Berlin Bear in 1974 when The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz actually won it. Maybe you got confused with the legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray who won the Golden Berlin Bear in 1973 for Distant Thunder.
Why the heck are all these inaccurate information here??

There has been a discussion on India Portal related to mentioning of caste of subjects. The point is that mentioning caste of people, who have nothing to do with their caste, is found to be unnecessary by few editors. Hence the caste of the subject person needs to be deleted from the biography. I am not deleting the caste as of now but am only posting this here so that the regular editors of this article are well aware of it beforehand and no edit-wars take place. For details of discussion held on the portal please refer Wikipedia_talk:Noticeboard_for_India-related_topics#Mentioning_caste_of_Individuals. Your views if any are welcome there or even here.
And.... as the reasons of exclusion of caste pointed out were "irrelavant to notability of subject person", "privacy of the subject person", "inclusion of caste is like branding individuals", etc. other information included in the article which also fall under these cases will also be removed after discussions. Examples of it included religion, non-notable spouse's and children's and parents' information, previous occupation, lived in places, non-notability related educational qualification, etc.
Your views on this are also welcome here or at the India portal. -Animeshkulkarni (talk) 10:21, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
- Not here, please. There is a community discussion taking place at WT:INB and I would advise people to read the entire discussion before forming an opinion because the above summary is incorrect. Nothing more need be said here. - Sitush (talk) 01:52, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
