Sirdar is also a popular brand of knitting yarn in the UK http://www.sirdar.co.uk/ Should this be included in some way? Claudine McClean 14:30, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

The "Sirdar (company)" article should be written. Quite notable. Thanks for pointing it out. mikka (t) 21:41, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose that Sirdar be merged into Sardar. The words are closely related cognates (Sirdar is Sanskrit, Sardar is Old Persian) indicating precisely the same concept - a head/chief of an Army.

I think that the content in the Sirdar article can easily be explained in the context of Sardar (which is more detailed)Bangalorebar (talk) 07:25, 8 November 2011 (UTC)


I agree with the above proposal. This word too old to be Arabic, it is a Persian word. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.255.40.219 (talk) 02:20, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
