secretary of district Congress Committee- which district and from 1911 to when?
his name is overused. --CarTick 17:07, 30 November 2009 (UTC)
In some places, Srinivasa Sastri is used, in other places only Sastri, I suggest using Sastri throughout except the Early life para where the other Sastri his father is mentioned. --RedtigerxyzTalk 05:08, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
Srinivasa Sastri married Parvathi in 1885.Parvathi who?
All I could gather is that Parvathi is the name of the woman Sastri married. As far as the available sources suggest, I don't think she is related to someone big-The EnforcerOffice of the secret service 05:58, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
Well if you are going to mention such a significant venet as his marriage it needs sourcing. If you can't source something like this remove it from the artcile. Jezhotwells (talk) 20:25, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
I could find enough sources to conclude that he married a woman called Parvathi in 1885. Please see . But I do not have any detailed information about her or her lineage.-The EnforcerOffice of the secret service 01:32, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
His grand-daughter Kausalya is the wife of renowned Indian scientist and nephew of Sir C. V. Raman, S. Ramaseshan. This doesn't belong in a section entitle Early life.
Initially, I wanted to create a section called "Family" but later I chose to add the stuff to "Early life" as I wish to avoid creating one or two-line paragraphs that would not conform to WP:MOS.-The EnforcerOffice of the secret service 01:39, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Politics: Suggest wikilink Co-operative movement to Cooperative
... he accompanied Annie Besant on another visit to England demanding Home Rule for India. Anoher vists? When was the previous visit?
International Delegations: Srinivasa Sastri was a part of the delegation of Indian moderates who visited England in 1919 - perhapsd this is teh first visit. Consider the chronological arrangemnet here.
... refused to treat Srinivasa Sastri on par with European delegate. delegates?
However, on Srinivasa Sastri's departure from South Africa as Agent ... Agent of what?
Srinivasa Sastri was deputed to the Federated Malay States in 1937, to report on the conditions of the Indian labourers in the country. - deputed seems rather clumsy.
During the early part of Sastri's tenure, a number of segregationary laws and legislations were passed targeting Indians and Indian immigrants in South Africa. - legislations should be singular. Segregationary should be wikilinked to Racial segregation.
The period also witnessed the establishment of a number of trade unions and organisations. organisations is rather vague.
During the last few months of Sastri's tenure, racial relations, however, began to worsen. Sastri campaigned against segregationary legislations and got the Class Area Bill segregating Indians withdrawn. legislation should be singular. This whole paragraph should be restructured, to flow better.
Later life and death: Annamalai University Where is this?
The committee submitted its report in three months recommending the retention of the existing Sanskrit loanwords in Tamil and rejecting the need for them to be replaced. after three months might be better.
He eventually died on April 17, 1946 at the age of 76. Of what?
I did an extensive search on Google. While sources do mention that he fell ill in early 1946 and died on April 17, 1946, none of the sources mention what his illness was.-The EnforcerOffice of the secret service 10:15, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Honours: In 1937, the then Governor of Madras offered to make Sastri the Acting Chief Ministership of Madras Presidency but Sastri declined the offer.to make .... Mimistership? Also I note that ref #31  titles Sastri as C H, (Companion of Honour), surely this should be mentioned.
The Lead does not fully summarise the artcile. Please read WP:LEAD.
Well, I feel it's quite comprehensive and I've expanded it a bit more. Could you please point out the specific points which the lead misses out.-The EnforcerOffice of the secret service 12:05, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
Dates: Better to use the British English form - if only to reduce the number of commas in sentences such as On May 27, 1927, at the behest of Mahatma Gandhi, Lord Irwin, the Viceroy of India, appointed Srinivasa Sastri as India's first Agent to the Republic of South Africa.
What makes ref #3  from a industrial company website a reliable source?
I chose the above url as a source because it appeared to direct to a journal published by the particular company. I assumed that since it is from a published source it might be more reliable that stuff posted on the company webpage. Anyway, I'll search if there are alternative sources and intimate you.-The EnforcerOffice of the secret service 06:07, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
Ref #7 Triplicane Union Cooperative Society in the article, Triplicane Urban Co-operative Society in the source.
My point is that the paper same Urban, the artcile says Union. I am not questioning the source, I wondered why the statement in the Wikipedia artcile contradicts the source. Jezhotwells (talk) 20:25, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh well! I've interchanged the images. I guess there is nothing wrong in moving Jan Smuts' image to the section "Agent to South Africa".-The EnforcerOffice of the secret service 12:11, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
OK, on hold for seven days whilst concerns above are addressed. Jezhotwells (talk) 12:48, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Hold extended til 23 January when a decision will be made. Jezhotwells (talk) 20:25, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
