Chinmaya Vidyalaya

Hi Deepu :-)

Hope ur doing fine. I came across the article you started on Chinmaya Vidyalaya. Chinmaya Vidyalaya is a group of schools run by the Chinmaya Mission(Chinmayananda). Chinmaya Vidyalaya's are found all over the world. To my knowledge in Kerala they're found in Ernakulam(Vaduthala), Thrippunithura, Thrissur, Kannur as well as in many places in Tvm. Hence, I'm updating the article accordingly. Cheers and Happy editing! --anirudh 15:39, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Non-commercial images are not supposed to be used in wikipedia as per a decree by Jimbo. I'm afraid but it will have to be deleted unless you can convince the copyright holder to release it under a cc-by / cc-by-sa licence. The lead should contain a summary of the topic. Since the real detail is present elsewhere in the article, ideally it should not have inline references in the lead. This does not apply if the text is unique to the lead. =Nichalp «Talk»= 14:39, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for the compliment on my pic!!!


Your article was featured on DYK yesterday!

Updated DYK query On July 10, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Yuktibhasa, which you created. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the "Did you know?" talk page.

I am touched

Dear Deepu, I was looking up an entry today when it said I had a message. I looked at my talk page, scrolled to the bottom. I saw the most beautiful butterfly there was and a caption that touched my heart. What can I's a great honour. Little did I know that I would one day participate in making the reference I constantly used a better one. Little did I know that something like this could happen when I first started editing. My heartfelt thanks, Deepu. I feel proud and honoured to be a part of this great family of Wikipedians.

I guess I have a big responsibility now. I will do my best to make Wikipedia better. Hope you will be there to guide me as you always have.

Yours faithfully, --anirudh 03:13, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Now its my turn to feel honoured. Thank you so much, Anirudh. :-)

Sounding out

Chettaa, since you have been around since March and really active since May, may be it's time to think about going for an RfA in mid/late September or thereabouts. But before that you will have to become more active in Wikipedia space, getting involved in policy discussions, RfA discussions (and not just voting) if you are interested etc. Tintin (talk) 12:14, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Asin's birth year

Hi, here is the link from

There seems to be a lot of confusion because some sites give 1981 and some 1985. Since the official website, does not mention the birth year, it's hard to be sure. I came across a conversation which said that she did her first film in 2001, Narendra Makan. If she would be born in 1985, she would be 16 years. Sounds improbable. Anyway let me know if you find out anything.

Thanks Dhwaneet

added Wikipedia_talk:Notice_board_for_India-related_topics/Kerala to watch list

added Wikipedia_talk:Notice_board_for_India-related_topics/Kerala to watchlist. Thanks --anirudh 15:00, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

1985 Then

Ok, then it must be 1985 because it's given elsewhere also



He told me that he felt that taking an RfA meant an obligation to do admin work, and that would take away from his writing. I really admire him for saying that, as many admins don't do any work at all like they promised to and only see the RfA as a decoration or trophy. Blnguyen | rant-line 05:26, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you, thank you ! It feel very nice to get such compliments :-) Time and priority are the reasons why I don't want to got for adminship. There is a huge amount of work left to do. Around this time last year, I had plenty of free time and I used to add 10-15 articles a month and take part in AfD and other discussions. But now, the articles have come down to 2-3 per month and hardly any wiki space activity. So diverting even the little time available for editing won't be the proper thing to do. Tintin (talk) 14:12, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

PS : Nice usage of chetta :)

about the new user

ya I noticed him too.. (I've got Hyderabad on my watchlist.) We need to wait till we know more about him than that he browses the french wikipedia, a pro free market, Arundati Roy baiter. Well about me though: whenever I get onto wikipedia nowadays, I end up spending more time reading one of the 1 million plus articles than contributing. --hydkat 09:59, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

a question

hi, i just recently sent an edit version of Civil Law (Common Law) in indonesian version. But i think i have ruined the page, coz i put it below the english one,the original version.Since that, i apologize you for the changes, please let me know how to edit it in the future. Best Regards

thanks a lot, amigo...will see what I can do with the filmography template --anirudh 14:28, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
highest paid model..yes...hmmm....will ask GB abt it. and the DYK..well...let's see what we can pull up... :-) Hope
Try to avoid country-centrism and topic-centrism. Wikipedia is a general-interest encyclopedia with a global audience. No DYK installment should have more than two entries relating to one country, topic, or issue, and no more than one is even better.
as give in WP:DYK will not be a problem(whatever it means) --anirudh 14:46, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

The strain you are taking to contribute in to this encyclopedia is quite impressive. Firsty, I thought that you are a bit regionally biased. Sorry for that. All the best from my side, to keep on the supply of info to wikipedia.

Thank you Deepu

Hello Deepu Joseph,

I like the concept of Wikipedia and the main problem with this is it is very very complicated to operate. If I make some changes, that need to be agreed by everyone. There are many complicated issues on which debate after debate is going on and with no end results. But I will stay.

Anyway I will learn it after using it. Some pages start disappearing or get disintegrated. I don't know why. Like the Indian Coast Guard page.

Anyway How is Cochin? And what progress did Achu mama bring to Kochi?

I don't see any purpose in having all these articles like Irumudi kettu, Guru Swamy, Traditional trek route and 108 Ayyappan Saranam. At the most, they may be worth a line or a small paragraph in the parent article. Someone put a speedy tag on Guru Swamy. I am sending it to WP:PROD instead. Tintin (talk) 10:25, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

shaji, response

Hi deepu

Sorry for editing without permission. I am in the process of learning wiki etiquettes.

Main reference for my corrections(?) is;

K. Kunjunni Raja, Astronomy and Mathematics in Kerala, The Adyar Library and Research Centre, 1995.

On Jyeshtadeva:- It was K.V. Sharma who assigned the period 1475-1575. Achyuta Pisharati, a disciple of J states that J completed Yukthibhasha on the day 1,714,262. (in katapayadi system). This corresponds to AD 1592. Kunhunni Raja asigns the period 1500-1600 to J.

A book by Dr. S. Balachandra Rao (Indian Mathematics and Astronomy) assigns the period (c. 1500-1610)to J.

I am Sorry

Hi Deepu, I am sorry that misunderstood you. I regret the impolite/harsh words I used . I am really sorry. I am working in Kochi. I have worked in Trivandrum also. I like both the places.They have their own advantages, and they are in different ways.If they grow at this rate, very soon both the cities will merge in near future.

I am new to talk and discussion. Also new to wiki editing. Even though I was using wiki for past 3 years I never new thet I could edit/contribute. For eg, probably I should have written this message in my talk box than yours. I will specify all my edits in future. I am yet to get all the conventions right. Please bear with for a few days. I also don't know about the Economy page that you are talking about. I have not seen it yet. In future I will differentiate between projects proposed and already underway. I will remove such clumsiness in my postings soon.

Hi deepu, Thanks for all those links......its a wonderful Job you are doing!!! And i was wondering if i was intruding too much into others articles... which prompted you to give me a message.

I want your opinion on this particular person Pradip Somasundaran. He claims to be a famous singer in Kerala.
