## Mathematics CotW

Hey Deep, I am writing you to let you know that the Mathematics Collaboration of the week(soon to "of the month") is getting an overhaul of sorts and I would encourage you to participate in whatever way you can, i.e. nominate an article, contribute to an article, or sign up to be part of the project. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks--Cronholm144 21:07, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

P.S. Great userpage!

## Indian Mathematics

Hi deeptrivia, I finally have some time to start doing a major revision of the page (recall your comments), which I had originally planned to do much earlier (after the RfC in March). I hope you'll have some time to look in every now and then and offer criticism, or if you have more time, help with the revision itself. Thanks. Regards, Fowler&fowler«Talk» 01:21, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

## Converts

The verb "to convert" has two uses. The first is intransitive, and that is how it was used in Buddhism and Hinduism. In this sense it means to change one's own religion. The other sense is transitive, and then it means to induce someone else to change his religion. In this sense, it is a synonym for the verb "to proselytize." In Indian English the verb "to proselytize" is basically obsolete and it has been replaced with "to convert" in the transitive sense {{fact}]. However in standard English "convert" is almost always used in the first sense [citation needed]. In that sense there can be no objection; Ashoka converted to Buddhism after experiencing sadness after a battle[citation needed], Guru Angad Dev converted[citation needed] to Sikhism after hearing sermons of Guru Nanak, etc. In fact all the Dharmic religions were at some point in their history proselytizing religions[citation needed]. Buddhism still is[citation needed]. That's why[citation needed] Buddhism is spreading among non-Asians in the West. However this aspect of Buddhism is not nearly as pronounced as in Christianity and Islam. Hinduism was once a very active proselytizing religion[citation needed], though Hindus were mostly interested in converting other Indians. At one time, most of India was Buddhist (because of Buddhist monks spreading the message and convincing people to convert[citation needed]). It was partially due to the work of Hindu proselytizers such as Adi Shankara (but mostly due to the Muslim hordes) that Buddhism almost completely died out in India. Arrow740 05:17, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
Also, note that the Dalai Lama is only the leader of one sect[citation needed] of Tibetan Buddhists. Arrow740 05:24, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

## Amitabh Bachchan

Hey Fayssal, could you transfer the history of Amitabh Bachchan Balwan Pehelwan Suleiman Akbar Jehangir Shahjehan Aurangzeb Yusuf Moosa Dawood Mohammed Iqbal Rasool Rashid to Amitabh Bachchan, or delete Amitabh Bachchan and then move Amitabh Bachchan Balwan Pehelwan Suleiman Akbar Jehangir Shahjehan Aurangzeb Yusuf Moosa Dawood Mohammed Iqbal Rasool Rashid to there, or something like that. I think you can guess what happened. Thanks. deeptrivia (talk) 03:08, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

## Buddhism and Hinduism

Hi Blnguyen. Could you please look at recent edits on Buddhism and Hinduism. A user seems to have broken WP:3RR, and is acting here in a way that appears unreasonable to me. deeptrivia (talk) 19:17, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

He does not appear to have broken 3RR, and the revertwarring has stopped for a while. I will try and take a read but I don't know anything about this stuff specifically. Blnguyen (bananabucket) 03:56, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Hello Deeptrivia - I share your frustration regarding this article, but at present do not have the time to dedicate to trying to resolve the problem. Shame, as it could be an interesting article. Will keep on my watchlist for any siginificant changes in future. Best Wishes, Gouranga(UK) 14:27, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

## Rani Mukerji

Hey there!

I saw your name on the participants' list for Wikiproject Indian Cinema. I've seen your work all over, and I was wondering if you could have a look at Rani Mukerji. The page has progressed in the last few days, but its lead paragraph could do with a look at. Your comments would be appreciated.

My apologies if this all seems a little random. I saw you on the list right under Zora and you're a far more experienced contributor than I am, so I thought I'd ask you request your guidance.

## Need help with two articles within the scope of Indian cinema project

Dabboo Ratnani needs a proper bio, an infobox, and of course a complete list of celebrities who appeared through the years on his famous calendar. The sample image from his calendar also needs more critical commentary with references. Ananthabhadram needs quite some work, too, though I can't really pinpoint the problems yet. Aditya Kabir 06:31, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

## Don't be hasty

See Buddhism_and_Hinduism#Notable_views, I took some context from the sources you used and placed it in a more appropriate location. Please self-revert. Arrow740 20:46, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

## The Islamic invasion

## Yuje claims India claimed Bhutan, Tibet

User:Yuje is claiming on Talk:Sino-Indian War that India claimed Bhutan and Tibet and attempts to use Indian government maps to prove this. He also denies China ever claimed Sikkim. As you reverted his map edits once, please provide input on this matter. Traing 07:21, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

## Prod:"Aryan religion"

I have added a "{{prod}}" template has been added to the article Aryan religion, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but the article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

## Thanks!

Hello Deeptrivia, thanks for pointing out my mistake on the Urdu article. I used the same link format that I had used on the article on Duke University and copy/pasted the same format into the Urdu article but accidentally neglected to change the link. Thanks for letting me know. I highly appreciate you and your contributions on the Urdu article and Wikipedia in general. With regards, AnupamTalk 23:44, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

## Jinnah

Why have you changed Pakistani to Indian politician in this article? He was born in Karachi and died in Karachi. I can put it as Indo-Pak politican. Shinas 14:08, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

## Tibet

I, with no doubt, reverted your edits. Please clearly read the original text of the Simla document:

As cross-examination, I would like to tell you M.C. Goldstein's History of Modern Tibet, like it or not Deeptrivia, also mentions the Appendix on page 75:

FYI, both Lochen Shatra and "GOI" representative signed the Note Exchange. - 219.79.120.208 09:58, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

This is also what it says: "The Government of China engages not to convert Tibet into a Chinese province." deeptrivia (talk) 17:43, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Um...I raise no question on adding that. Successive Chinese governments factually have zero interest in transforming Tibet into a province, as of 2007 Tibet is still a Chinese region instead of a province. :) - 219.79.120.208 10:51, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

## Agra

Saintchaseallen@msn.com

Thanks

Deeptrivia, I wanted to clarify that I initiated the definitional discussion on the Hinduism talk page, not because I though your edit was "wrong", but rather because I though that it raised a substantiative issue that perhaps we need to establish consensus over. In fact with hindsight, I think I should have started the discussion before I reverted your version, rather than after. Though I'd drop you a line to explain my thinking. Regards.

## Films interests

Hi I like your taste in world films - very interesting indeed I'm impressed - not the usual Hollywood blockbusters. Incidentally I started the Himilaya article and its director Eric Valli. I'd like to get the DVD someday, Where did you ge tthe chance to see that world concoction of films???? PLease note I created Template:Filmrationale for use on film posters and screenshots -it saves you have to add the rationale

Feel free to help any of these lists:

Thanks, Blnguyen for reverting vandalism on my userpage. That was a "response" to my filing Wikipedia:Suspected_sock_puppets#User:Nadirali. Nadirali was one of the users banned as a result of Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration/India-Pakistan, where you were an arbitrator. The user's response also includes creating a silly Wikipedia:Suspected sock puppets/Deeptrivia and Category:Suspected Wikipedia sockpuppets of Deeptrivia, which I've marked for speedy deletion, although I don't know if such pages could be marked for speedy deletions. Regards, deeptrivia (talk) 13:48, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

I had indeed noticed that it was a point violation, which is why I blocked him yesterday for 24 hours. In the meantime, Jpgordon has confirmed that he is a sock, so he was now indefinitely blocked and the year long ban has been reset. Another admin has already deleted the point violations. Blnguyen (bananabucket) 03:10, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

## Seeking opinion from regular editors on reference pattern

Opinion is sought from regular editors of the article Hinduism regarding the splitting of Notes and references section. This is a short gist of the discussions going on in the above mentioned talk links: Having a separate "Notes" (for explanatory remarks) and "Citations" (for direct citations), although permitted, is relatively rare in Wikipedia, and also in academic journals. The main rationale behind doing this is to distinguish a series of explanatory remarks from the series of citations (please see Rabindranath Tagore, Demosthenes for examples).

This sandbox gives a glimpse of how the article would look if we split the sections (the sandbox is under work, so may not be perfect). This link shows how the article looks with combined section. This may give an idea how it looked when I started working on references. I converted many references to Harvard format, apart from splitting the sections.

Opinion for regular editors are sought regarding the application of splitting of two section for this article. Please do so in Talk:Hinduism in the section Talk:Hinduism#Seeking_opinion_from_regular_editors_on_reference_pattern. Regards.--Dwaipayan (talk) 05:02, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

## Orphaned non-free image (Image:Pashupati.jpg)

Thanks for uploading Image:Pashupati.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' 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 "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot 00:38, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

## nyaya panchayat

I am removing the word gram nyayalaya from the nyaya panchayat articles becaused these two are different concepts. Gram Nyayalayas refer to the recent attempt of Ministery of Law to introduce mobile court with judges but Nyaya Panchayat is the village level dispute resolution mechanism by people themselves.

## Replaceable fair use Image:Higherself.jpg

Thanks for uploading Image:Higherself.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add `{{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}`, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that fair use images which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 7 days after this notification, per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. —Remember the dot (talk) 22:37, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

## Determinant sign

Deeptrivia,
I came across the question you had posed at the Math ref. desk. While I don't have a direct answer for why the computation of ${\displaystyle det(I+e^{A})}$ is so numerically sensitive (although I suspect it has to do with the ill-conditioning of A), I was intrigued by an even more basic problem: Why does matlab find rank(A) = 6, while clearly it should be ≤5, since the fourth and fifth columns of the matrix are identical ?
Aside: Do you have the singular values of A handy ? Abecedare 07:02, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

### Indo greek page

Deeptrivia,

It is truly unfortunate that someone who spends as much time on the indian articles as you do is enabling PHG's systematic biasing of indian articles. He claims every indian accomplishment and dynasty under the sun as products of the greeks (chalukyas = seleucids,sikander al sani on khilji's coins = greek coinage influence? come on). Worst of all, he is stomping out dissent on the various perspetives on the indo greek period. To him, nothing less than the entire northern half of the subcontinent must have been ruled by the indo greeks--a preposterous notion considering there is no archaeological evidence to substantiate that. in fact, even european scholars (see talk page "End of the road for the Indo Greeks" acknowledge that it is foolish to proclaim colonial theories as writ without hard evidence coming to the fore. If you are going to involve yourself into the debate, at least have the decency to address the legitimate questions raised by those who actually want objective history in these articles.

## Weigh in?

Since you took part in the recent RfC on Talk:India, it would be great if you could weigh in here. Thanks. Fowler&fowler«Talk» 17:38, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

Can you take a look at Article North India and comment on it on the talk page? I've made some efforts changing it... especially at removing the POV statements... Mugunth 07:42, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

## Pashtun map

Hi. Hope you're doing well. Someone deleted the great map that you made showing the distribution of Pashtuns in Afghanistan and Pakistan. I suspect it was a sockpuppet of user: NisarKand who claims Balochistan as Pashtun land. Can you please upload it again? -- Behnam 00:53, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

## Swastika Curve

Thank you for Image:SwastikaCurve.png. I have a request. I wonder if you would consider making the lines thicker and the bounding box around the curve a bit smaller, so that the curve shows up better on the Swastika Curve article. Now it is kind of hard to see.

Otherwise, if you post the source code in the image page (which is a good idea always), I can regenerate the picture myself. Thanks. You can reply here. Oleg Alexandrov (talk) 21:21, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

## Re: Indosphere

May be you are right, but I am pretty convinced that Greater India, Indies, Undivided India and Indosphere are by and large variations of the same subject, and can very well be merged together to make for a comprehensive understanding of the subject. Currently the understanding of the extent of Indian civilization in the past and in the present is spread over a number of rather short articles, which make for a somewhat diminished understanding. I have an intention to merge all that together. May be you can lend your advises or a hand there. Please, reply to my talk page. Aditya(talkcontribs) 17:20, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. I guess I'll pass the classical part. Will it be alright if I start merging the other articles (Indosphere not included)? And, in that case, I see little point in having a separate article for Indianized kingdoms and Indosphere. All these articles can be forked and split as and when they grow. My target is a simple one - creating an easy access to global India, which also includes the Indian diaspora. Any ideas? Aditya(talkcontribs) 07:26, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

## Redirect of Nonhuman

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Nonhuman, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Nonhuman is a redirect to a non-existent page (CSD R1).

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Nonhuman, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself.

## Argument against Afghanistan

Atari400 is, in my opinion falsely, claiming that Afghanistan and Balochistan are not part of the Indosphere. I do not agree with him at all. Seeing that you monitor the Indosphere page, can you throw in your two cents on debate. This debate started on the Indosphere countries/territories template, and moments ago I transferred the entrie template talk page onto the indosphere article talk page. Thegreyanomaly (talk) 10:41, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Interesting. It appears that you are actively trying to "stack the consensus". You may see my opinion as being false, but your's comes across as rather nationalistic, and perhaps can even interpreted as bigoted by some. Atari400 18:04, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

## WikiProject Pakistan

### Shi'a-Sunni sectarianism! What next?

Wikipedia has always had its fair share of disputes. The issues surrounding debates like creationism-evolutionism had been a source of many edit wars. But recently enough, the ball-of-chaos had landed in our very own court. Pakistani issues are now polluted with a new sectarianism, especially the biographical articles celebrating some of the most influential people in Pakistani politics. These edit wars annoyed administrators who had no idea how the problems should be dealt with. Instances of religious inclination (either Shi'a Islam or Sunni Islam) were changed from one or the other. Debates have kicked off on the WP Pakistan talk page. Recently enough, a new policy has come into discussion (actually, it's just a set of rules) that defines major guidlines for such issues. It now awaits votes from all Pakistani editors.

In other news: Akhtar Hameed Khan has finally reached the FA status and Islescape is the happiest person on Earth.

## Image source problem with Image:Pashupati.gif

Thanks for uploading Image:Pashupati.gif. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 06:33, 15 August 2008 (UTC).

## WikiDharma

Hi!

I didn't realise this project existed!

I had the idea to set up a WikiDharma.org. That actual domain name is held by a domain farmer but I have bought and parked related names. I don't want to reinvent the [Dharma] Wheel or throw away work that has already been done.

What I have done to date is create an outline of the type of content that I think would be useful for a WikiDharma. A full project plan for WikiDharma is here: http://herdingkatsu.blogspot.com/

Maybe there is some food for thought in there or maybe not.

## Orphaned non-free media (File:Ketu.jpg)

Thanks for uploading File:Ketu.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Hi there deeptrivia, I realised it has been a really really long time since we last made contact [29th December 2005], so I just wanted to know if you're there still editing articles relating to India. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 11:28, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

## RBI

Well, you know how the Americans think they're the only ones alive on this planet, so most of the things online, go according to their whims and fancies.
So, I thought, let's be a bit fair.
RBI, redirects to Run Batted In, which as we all know is a baseball term, and baseball is an American sport.
Sometime back, a vote was held to redirect it to the disambig page. Someone said, English is NOT a primary language of India, and hence there should be preference to non-Indian artices.
The Americans voted and made the article redirect to Run Batted In, so I feel, we should all have another vote.
So, please vote, on whether you support or oppose the redirect to RBI (disambiguation) rather than Run batted in.
The earlier debate can be found at Talk:RBI (disambiguation).
The new poll can be found at Talk:RBI
Regards,

## File source problem with File:I india ujjain 4634v o.jpg

Thanks for uploading File:I india ujjain 4634v o.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 14:12, 25 November 2009 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 14:12, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

## You are now a Reviewer

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, will be commencing a a two-month trial at approximately 23:00, 2010 June 15 (UTC).

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under flagged protection. Flagged protection is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial.

When reviewing, edits should be accepted if they are not obvious vandalism or BLP violations, and not clearly problematic in light of the reason given for protection (see Wikipedia:Reviewing process). More detailed documentation and guidelines can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. Karanacs (talk) 17:29, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

## Proposed Tibetan naming conventions

A few months ago, I posted a new proposal for Tibetan naming conventions, i.e. conventions that can be used to determine the most appropriate titles for articles related to the Tibetan region. This came out of discussions about article titles on Talk:Qamdo and Talk:Lhoka (Shannan) Prefecture. I hope that discussions on the proposal's talk page will lead to consensus in favour of making these conventions official, but so far only a few editors have left comments. If you would be interested in taking a look at the proposed naming conventions and giving your opinion, I would definitely appreciate it.

## Speedy deletion nomination of Gnawa Diffusion

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Gnawa Diffusion requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a band or musician, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

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," which appears inside of the speedy deletion (`{{db-...}}`) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate). 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. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Epeefleche (talk) 16:17, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

==Wikimedia Foundation++

Hi Deeptrivia,

My name is Patricia. I'm working with the Wikimedia Foundation this summer to learn about the histories of different Wikipedias. You can read about the project here. You probably don't know this, but you were one of the first users to register on Hindi Wikipedia and one of the most active of those early users. Any chance you'd be willing to talk with me about your experiences editing? I'm especially interested in what you feel like are the differences between the Hindi and English Wikipedias. I'm sure seeing Hindi Wikipedia grow, even though it seems you're doing most of your editing here, you've got some great insight!

If you'd be willing to talk to with me please send me an email at hindiwikipedia@gmail.com or just leave a message on my talk page. Thanks so much! Cloudmessenger (talk) 21:00, 5 July 2011 (UTC)
