Hi, did tou take this picture Image:RoadTrip 2005 0526 223808.JPG, if so could you please add copyright information.--nixie 06:46, 3 October 2005 (UTC)

If you took this image yourself you can add {{PD-self}} as the copyright tag. Thanks. Who?¿? 02:27, 11 October 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for info. I updated the copyright. Chirags 16:43, 1 December 2005 (UTC)

External links[edit]

Hi, Chirags! There's a way you can link. For example, if you wanted to link an article called "Trains" to the Spanish Wikipedia, type the following at the bottom of the article: [[sp:Ferrocarril]]. The first two lettters represent the destination wiki, while the name of the corresponding Spanish article follws. Hope this helps! - Lucky 6.9 01:02, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

Portal[edit]

Thanks for starting the Portal, I've added a collaboration page.

What did you mean about Netherlands? (I live in the US)

Vvuppala 06:53, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

No big deal. Amherst(USA) is very similar to Amsterdam (Netherlands). Vvuppala 17:44, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

I agree. External links should be only at the end of the article. That article needs a big cleanup. You should post this on the India notice board and see what others say. - Ganeshk 21:09, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

About COTW Hyderabad[edit]

Hi chirags,

Nice work on making the article on Hyderabad better. I noticed the COTW sign has been removed. Are you and others still working on it. If so let me know.

re: Hyderabad[edit]

About the second point thats troubling you: That only the muslim community speaks deccani is well... idiotic. I can assure you that it is spoken everyone who wish to survive in the streets here. Its the best way to commnicate with auto drivers, ask for direction from complete stranger. Shop-keepers need to speak it simply to better sell their wares. It need not be your mother-tongue, (I'm a Tamilian) but stay a few years in Hyderabad and you will end up thinking in it!! BTW I don't think most Hyderabadis realise they are speaking in that language when they do. I suspect they think they are speaking some form of Hindi (Which, much to my embarassment includes me.)

About Telugu Nationalism; I'll try to find some stuff up on it.

As for distorting history: Its a too common occupation, my mom claims that the present Indian civilisation dates back to about 800,000 years ago. And the Ramayana and Mahabharata occuring 200,000 and 100,000 years ago (or something like that) I end up getting into furious arguments with her and everbody who takes her side, which believe me is quite a few people :(

Grammatical errors and more

Hi, Can we please correct the grammer of the 'Media - Tollywood' section? And i kind of feel Media is a useless subsection in that page unless it talks about something unique to hyderabad... like Radio Biryani, Channel 6 Hyderabad Magazine, and the Deccan Chronical (ok...the last one is not exactly unique.)

Saw the user contrib page you sent... is he worth voting for?

That is something I'm trying to decide. 'Cause I have noone else whom I could consider. (well.. apart from this woman who says she'll beat everyone with a stick :) I'm a bit dissapointed that no one is actively campaining... that is always a very good sign a system is working.

take look at Indian mafia[edit]

Hi, take a look at the article Indian mafia and suggest something will you. At its current state it would probably get the cleanup to higher stadards tag.

google search on indian cities[edit]

Hi, I did a search in google to find out how wikipeidia some of the articles on Indian cities rank and heres what I found: (def - google has a definition link on the search)

  • Calcutta - 6 def? yes
  • Kolkata - 8 def? no
  • Bombay - 7 def? yes
  • Mumbai - 6 def? yes
  • Chennai - 6 def? yes
  • Madras - 9 def? yes
  • Bangalore - 5 def? yes
  • Ahmedabad - 6 def? yes
  • Hyderabad - 12 def? (no link to content)

well...excepting Hyderabad, I think its a fairly good result: its going to lead to a lot more vandalism attacks though. --hydkat 07:38, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

RE:Joen and Google[edit]

i understand, but for that it doesn't matter if it comes from the indian (i guess) google or the .com one, i think it's wiser and less confusing for people to use the .com one. Boneyard 17:41, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

oh like that, well you can download it now and upload it to wiki, not sure if that is allowed though, im really not into the rules on that. Boneyard 21:14, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Invitation and Recommendations for writing articles on Hindi Wikipedia[edit]

Hindi wikipedia invites and welcomes Wikipedians to contribute for the cause of spreading knowledge and the Hindi language. This page contains guidelines for writing a wiki-article on any topic at the Hindi Wikipedia, with special recommendations for writing in Hindi (Note: The script/font-family for Hindi is Devanāgari; the script/font-system for English is Roman script, also, the Hindi spelling system is not completely standardized). This article is yet in English language (mostly), in order to encourage even non-native/foreign people who have learnt/are learning Hindi to contribute to the Hindi wikipedia, and native Hindi speakers who normally write in English. The examples given below are only for explanation.

Recommendations:

  1. Firstly for proper viewing, it is recommended to keep all links NOT-UNDERLINED. Otherwise the मात्रा below the Hindi alphabets might get partly hidden behind the underlines. For this, please go to My Preferences (मेरी पसंद) at the top of the page, then click Misc., and then choose "underline links -> Never". Save your settings. Also, do not click yes for "justify paragraphs", otherwise on some browsers, the devanagari script will appear highly distorted.
  2. All users are requested and encouraged to contribute articles here, especially, to create new articles on general topics. They are also encouraged to expand the existing articles, and improve upon them. A non-user can also do the same; it is recommended but not required to register yourself as a wikipedian user at the Hindi wikipedia. As far as possible, each article should be written with a Neutral Point of View (NPOV)—no nationalistic or partiality or hatred based articles are welcome. The articles should be based on facts—and appropriate references should be provided as and where needed. See the English wiki's help page for editing in general. Almost all the general wiki-features are available for editing on Hindi wiki too. Guidelines for the content matter is mostly the same as given in English wiki.
  3. Since the Hindi wiki is at its initial stages, users are welcome to take introduction and basic points from the English (or another) wikipedia's corresponding article and translate them for small articles. An in-page link to the English wiki's article will be deemed sufficient for references (a template might be created stating this). For longer articles, it is recommended to mention the references separately.
  4. Since most computer users in India and elsewhere have the standard Western-type keyboard, it is best recommended (but not necessarily required) to use the virtual (software) keyboard like the one of Hindimozhi or of ISIS (Tavultesoft Keyman)—which are freewares. These are advantageous because the contemporary Hindi-speakers in India often write messages/chat using Hindi words but written in Roman (English) script, and the layout of these keyboards is quite the same that such people use. For example, using the "normal" keyboard with this software, typing ga would give ग and ghaa would give घा.
  5. Create the article with its name written in Hindi (devanagari script). Always take care to include the nukta (dot below) for foreign / Urdu loanwords wherever it occurs in the standard spelling. For non-Indian names, use that spelling (for article name and other words) which is commonly encountered in Hindi newspapers, G.K.-books, Hindi-dubbed TV documentaries and Hollywood films and magazines. e.g., America-अमरीका (या अमेरिका), China-चीन, French-फ़्रांसिसी. For English acronyms/short-forms, use the initials in Roman script, and again create a full form in Hindi and redirect it to the short form. e.g. IPA (अन्तर्राष्ट्रीय ध्वनि वर्णाक्षर); UNO (संयुक्त राष्ट्र संघ). Doing the opposite is also fine. But creating the article with the Hindi short form, as सं०रा०सं०, is not recommended. Also, the article proper must be written with the proper nukta, as फ़ारसी, and then, a non-nukta (mis-)spelt version फारसी should preferably be created to redirect to the correct spelling.
  6. Hindi wikipedia strongly recommends the users to write articles in everyday common Hindi in the खड़ीबोली dialect (Hindustani or Hindi-Urdu, i.e., बोलचाल वाली हिन्दी, which may include many loanwords from Persian and Arabic). The use of शुद्ध संस्कृतनिष्ठ हिन्दी is in general neither required nor recommended. E.g., use: वजह instead of कारण, ख़ास instead of विशेष, वगैरह instead of इत्यादि, लेकिन instead of परन्तु etc. However, for technical and specialized vocabulary, the use of शुद्ध संस्कृतनिष्ठ हिन्दी is recommended and usually mandatory. Thus: upper House of Parliament—संसद का उच्च सदन, but not Urdu—मजिलिस का ऐवान-ए-बाला ; Foreign Minister—विदेशमन्त्री, but not Urdu—वज़ीर-ए-ख़ारिजा ; knowledge/science—ज्ञान/विज्ञान, but not इल्म. Use spoken Hindi's ये and वो instead of यह and वह / वे. Do not use the title of respect जी after names, it is unencyclopedic. Thus: कृष्ण / श्री कृष्ण but not कृष्ण जी. Use the आप form and its corresponding 3rd person verbal conjugation for writing about respectable persons. Thus: श्री वाजपेयी मध्य प्रदेश में जन्मे थे. But not: वाजपेयी मध्य प्रदेश में जन्मा था. But do not use the pronoun "आप" itself in-text in biographies.
  7. English should be used sparingly, only when required; i.e., if the corresponding शुद्ध हिन्दी word is too "difficult and not generally encountered", or if it is a proper name of non-Indian person/place/terminology/title, or if the user is highly unsure of the proper translation. It is recommended (but not required) for English-to-Hindi translation while writing articles, the Shabdkosh online dictionary should be used. For each English word, that alternative should be used which is generally encountered in everyday spoken Hindi, and also fits well into the context. Use of intelligent guesses for newly encountered words is also allowed, and so are translations encountered in Hindi-dubbed TV documentaries, Hollywood films, Hindi-translated books, etc. e.g., दमपिशाच for en:Dementor (used in dubbed HP films).
  8. If used, it is recommended to use the English words within the articles using the English (Roman) alphabets rather than devanagari (or better, the devanagari transliteration should be used in the sentence, followed by the English word in Roman alphabet in parentheses). Such words should be italicized and not put in quotation marks. Preferably, there should be an in-page interwiki link (like :en:) on the word to the English wikipedia. If the word comes as an integral part of a sentence, so as not to break the continuity, the en: prefix should be hidden by writing the word again after the pipe sign (piped link). Thus, recommended: हैरी पॉटर ने ''[[:en:Pensieve|Pensieve]]'' के अन्दर ''[[:en:Little Hangleton|Little Hangleton]]'' गाँव में लॉर्ड वोल्डेमॉर्ट की माँ ''[[:en:Merope Gaunt|Merope Gaunt]]'' को देखा. ''[[:en:Resplendent Quetzal|Resplendent Quetzal]]'' पक्षी के ऊपर एक मेक्सिकन पादरी डा० ''[[:en:Pablo de la Llave|Pablo de la Llave]]'' ने काफ़ी शोध किया था. Whence,
    • हैरी पॉटर ने Pensieve के अन्दर Little Hangleton गाँव में लॉर्ड वोल्डेमॉर्ट की माँ Merope Gaunt को देखा
    • Resplendent Quetzal पक्षी के ऊपर एक मेक्सिकन पादरी डा० Pablo de la Llave ने काफ़ी शोध किया था
  9. Always start the first 1 or 2 lines of the article giving its definition (from any standard dictionary/other wiki) or suitable introduction. Thus, recommended: ललिता सहस्रनामन हिन्दू धर्मसुधारक आदि शंकराचार्य द्वारा रचित देवी दुर्गा को समर्पित एक पूजा-मन्त्र है, जिसे कई हिन्दू रोज़ श्रद्धा से जपते हैं । But not: ललिता सहस्रनामन मन्त्र जपने के लिये लड्डू-पेड़ा, ताम्बुल, सिन्दूर, लाल चुनरी के साथ नित्य इस मन्त्र का पाठ करें, तो जल्द ही गड़ा हुआ ख़जाना मिलेगा । Recommended: वैमानिक अभियान्त्रिकी (en:Aeronautical engineering) विमानों (en:Aircrafts) की अभिकल्पना, निर्माण और प्रचालन करने का विज्ञान, कला और कार्य है । (translated from Eng. Webster's New World Dictionary). But not: आजकल वैमानिक अभियान्त्रिकी के लिये देशभर में कई कॉलेज खुल गये हैं, जिनमें अग्रणी स्थान यूटोपिया स्थित लालू-यादव टेक्लिनक कॉलेज का है ।
  10. For names of countries, cities, places, languages, people, books, films, technical vocabulary, mythology, etc, start the article like this:
    • 1. The name in bold ('''अपोलो''')
    • 2. starting parenthesis, then English name in Roman script, in-page interwiki-linked to English wiki ff. by semicolon ((अंग्रेज़ी : [[:en:Apollo]];)
    • 3. The native name(s) if applicable in the italicized native script, preferably followed either by its italicized approximate Hindi pronunciation or non-italicized phonological transcription within / /, ff. by closed parenthesis (यूनानी : ''Aπollων अपोल्लोन''))
    • 4. the rest of the definition or introduction (प्राचीन [[यूनानी धर्म]] (ग्रीक धर्म) और प्राचीन [[रोमन धर्म]] के सर्वोच्च देवता थे ।) For country names, only the standard short form of the name is needed in the first line. If there is a common name for a difficult word in Hindustani, also mention it. Whence: अपोलो (अंग्रेज़ी : en:Apollo; यूनानी : Aπollων अपोल्लोन) प्राचीन यूनानी धर्म (ग्रीक धर्म) और प्राचीन रोमन धर्म के सर्वोच्च देवता थे । If you don't give the interwiki English/another language link (which would be deemed to be the default reference), then you MUST provide an appropriate reference.
  11. Please leave no article without an appropriate category. See the list of created categories here; you can also make a new category (pref. in Hindi). Please leave no article without at least ONE off page (like en:) interwiki link. E.g., the user can check the article name (say Apollo) on the finally redirected English page and append to the Hindi article ([[en:Appolo]])). These interlanguage links will help a bot to update all interwiki links for that article in all wikipedias. The category and the aforementioned link should be typed at the end of the article. If the article is very small, mention it as a stub/substub.
  12. Use of templates is welcome. See the list of templates here. If creating a template, name it pref. in Hindi.
  13. Use पूर्णविराम ( । ) instead of a period (.) for ending statements. The पूर्णविराम, semicolon, colon and dash (but not comma) must come after one space after the word to prevent ambiguity. Use the international form of the Hindu-Arabic numerals (1,2,3 instead of १,२,३), as used by the Constitution and the Government of India (even for Hindi). There is no need to use the हलन्त at the end of Sanskrit words wherever it occurs. Hence, prefer: संसद over संसद्; अथर्वन over अथर्वन्. Use the proper quotation marks “” from the Insert toolbox, not "". Write dates as 2 मई 2006 (ईसवी or ईसापूर्व). Write time as 3:45 pm. Separate common suffix-words like शास्त्र, विज्ञान, ज्ञान with a hyphen. Thus: रसायन-शास्त्र. For most others, leave both the words of the noun-cluster free. Combine them into one word only if it is very common to do so. Thus: सामवेद.
  14. The use of ज़ for the en:voiced alveolar fricative (/z/, as in zoo, rose) is fundamentally wrong. Its nearest counterpart is the en:voiceless alveolar fricative /s/ (as in sea), and not Hindi ज (en:voiced palatal plosive). Hence, it is suggested and recommended that for the sound /z/, whether it comes in English (etc.) spellings (z) for while pronunciation otherwise, should be transcribed as स़ (स with a dot below, available in the Insert toolbox). Hence: Reason रीस़न, not रीज़न ; Roses रोस़ेस़, not रोज़ेज़. But common Hindi words borrowed from Persian/Arabic (so-called Urdu words) are allowed to continue with ज़ spelling. Thus: ज़रा, नज़र, तर्ज़. The en:voiced postalveolar fricative (/ʒ/ as in treasure), inexistent in Hindi, can similarly be transcribed with श़. Thus: treasure ट्रॅश़र. The nukta (dot) available in the Insert toolbox can be combined with various consonants to suggest a more exact phonetic devanagari rendering of foreign sounds. E.g., since phonetically, English Think and this are not equal to थिंक and दिस, a better transcription could be थ़िंक and द़िस. Please take care of the dot below in so-called Urdu words, otherwise the Hindi spelling is deemed incorrect.
  15. For the following English vowels met, mate, mat, transcribe as मॅट (short vowel), मेट (not मेइट), मैट (not मॅट, as popular in Marathi). However in contemporary Hindi and here, it is acceptable to use ए instead of ऍ. Thus: अमेरिका is more popular than अमॅरिका. For cot, coat, caught, transcribe as कॉट, कोट, कॉट (not कौट). Transcribe English /t/ and /d/ as ट and ड.
  16. Use half-न before त, थ, द, ध, न, instead of anuswaar अं. Use half-म before प, फ, ब, भ, म. Use the anuswaar before all the rest of the consonants (not half-ङ, ञ, ण). If the मात्रा is not above the alphabet, use chandra-bindu, but only for nasalization. Thus: अन्दर, not अंदर ; अन्त, not अंत ; हिन्दी, not हिंदी ; सम्भव, not संभव ; पंचमी, not पञ्चमी ; अंडा, not अण्डा ; कंठ, not कण्ठ ; लैंड, not लैण्ड ; आँख, not आंख. However, both forms are acceptable in contemporary Hindi as well as here; the prec. are just recommendations.
  17. When proceded by another vowel, use the pure vowels instead of य (unless the य is clearly articulated while pronouncing). Thus : जाएँ, not जायें (not जावें) ; आएगा, not आयेगा . However, both forms are acceptable in contemporary Hindi as well as here.
  18. Please pay careful attention to the masculine/feminine gender (and singular/plural) in adjectives and verbs, else the sentence becomes ungrammatical.

For more information/suggestions/criticisms, please contact any one of the administrators of Hindi wiki here, preferably en:User:Magicalsaumy.

Also, Please nominate only one article at a time, the first point on the Nomination criteria. Thanks for your contributions to INCOTW. - Ganeshk (talk) 17:09, 2 August 2006 (UTC)
I have removed the nominations for now. Please feel free to nominate any 1 of the 4 articles removed when Pyarelal Nayyar (nominated by you) completes one month (or gets selected). - Aksi_great (talk - review me) 17:08, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Opposing votes an INCOTW[edit]

Hello. I have removed your oppose vote at INCOTW. There are no oppose/against votes. Only vote support for article which you support. Oppose votes don't add to anything. The article with the maximum number of support votes gets selected. Also, please feel free to add an (only 1 at a time) article to INCOTW. - Aksi_great (talk - review me) 17:02, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

I am really sorry that I have to remove your nomination once again. That article was just removed from INCOTW today as a failed nomination. See Talk:Pyarelal_Nayyar. Articles that stay here for a month but don't get enough support votes are removed. Please add another article. I had removed Bismillah Khan, Raghunath Karve, Bhanu Athaiya and Social Reform Movement in Maharashtra earlier because at that time there was already one article nominated by you on INCOTW. If you want add any one of them back at INCOTW. As for your comment on AB - they are valid. The article is not a stub. I have asked the wider Indian community for guidance on this. If there is consensus that the stub rule should prevail then I will remove the article from INCOTW. - Aksi_great (talk - review me) 17:44, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi Chirag, how are you ? can you give me your email id.

request[edit]

hey Chirag:

I have put a detailed analysis of Jainism qua the legal status, and perspective.

This is crucial since there are attempts across the States of India to put Jainism into the domain of Hinduism, and disregard it as a seperate religion.

Could you please: 1. Put the content on "legal debate" etc. on a new page. 2. add jainism and law, or jainism-legal debates in the side box

thanks a lot rishabh

I am seeking help to deal with the disruptive behavior of User:IAF on the pages of Indian religions. He is intent on proving that Jainism is a derivative of Vedic religion and ignoring all the proofs and multitude of references of western and Indian scholars that I have provided. He is indulging in edit warring and ignoring the antiquity and contributions of Jainism and Sramanas to the Indian Culture.

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Somaiya.png[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Somaiya.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 10:58, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Agilelogo.png}[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:Agilelogo.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check:

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's escription page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. NOTE: once you correct this, please remove the tag from the image's page.

Fair use rationale for File:Mario miranda dalai lama.jpg[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Mario miranda dalai lama.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the file description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Non-free rationale for File:Malgudi.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:Malgudi.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 15:20, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of File:Deltaairline-logo-1.png[edit]

A tag has been placed on File:Deltaairline-logo-1.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, contest the deletion by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". Doing so will take you to the talk page where you will find a pre-formatted place for you to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

The article Manu Sareen has been proposed for deletion because, under Wikipedia policy, all newly created biographies of living persons must have at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

Disambiguation link notification for August 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Hari Shivdasani, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Sindhi (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

WikiProject Jainism[edit]

Hi Chirag, my name is Aayush and I would like to invite you to join WikiProject Jainism. This group tries its best to maintain Jainism related articles. We also try our best to protect these articles from vandals who tend to disregard the Jain side of things. The Jain group on Wikipedia is very small and we could definitely use some help in maintaing and protecting the Jain point of view on Wikipedia. If you have any questions whatsoever, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Please feel free to browse through WikiProject Jainism, the Jainism Portal and other Jain articles to see which Jain articles are of interest to you and edit them where you see fit. Please feel free to contact me with whatever questions that you may have. Hope you have fun on Wikipedia!--Aayush18 (talk) 21:18, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

The article Deven Khote has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

I couldn't establish that Khote meets WP:BIO or WP:GNG

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.
