User of <small> </small> tags[edit]

My edit removing the <small> tags was undone by Fowler. The rationale behind removing the tags is that it is a POV issue and it is being used by the likes of Fowler to bolster their anti-Indian POV. Can the original creator please comment on why these tags were used? Can we get rid of them? Zuggernaut (talk) 03:32, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but Zuggernaut, has tampered with evidence which was offered in a consensus building process on the Talk:India page. The template has some topics in small letters because they are subtopics. Thus "Warren Hastings" (the first Governor General of India under Company rule) is a subtopic of "Company Rule"; "Mughal architecture" is a sub-topic of "Mughal India". Getting rid of this hierarchy will be very confusing. Moreover, the "History of South Asia" template (shown on the right), has an even more stringent hierarchy. Entire topics don't even show up in the default version! Fowler&fowler«Talk» 04:04, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

ce needed[edit]

@Frietjes: would you be able to give this template a smaller appearance, with collapsible lists? Thanks in advance, Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 04:57, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Joshua Jonathan, done. Frietjes (talk) 15:30, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
@Frietjes: great! The sublines are really cool. Thanks! Joshua Jonathan -Let's talk! 18:33, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Bharata Khanda[edit]

I have noticed Bharata Khanda, Ramayana and Mahabharata listed in this template. I am removing them because I don't see any WP:HISTRS claiming that they are historical concepts or happenings. If anybody knows of valid reliable sources, please provide them. - Kautilya3 (talk) 15:10, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Regional dynasties[edit]

This template should have pan-Indian dynasties. Putting regional and short lived dynasties like Suri and Bengal Sultanate makes this template no different than History of South Asia template. I recommend removing it. ( (talk) 22:15, 5 December 2016 (UTC))

Two questions:
  • How many "Pan-Indian" dynasties do you find in the list?
  • Why shouldn't the History of South Asia template similarly ask for "pan-South Asian" kingdoms?
