The article on Abhang is a stub though it is a part of Classical Musics. I am planning on Adding more Data to it, I would request editors versed in the topic to once verify the additions. Psgs123xyz (talkcontribs) 16:29 8th December 2014

Page for upacharas?[edit]

Reading Namaste, I came across the term "upacharas" with no explanation. There is no page for it. I linked it as [[upachara]]s, producing the redlink upacharas to at least show that it should be linked.

I am not a Hindu or particularly familiar with South Asian customs,* and certainly not qualified to even create a stub, so I'm bringing the matter here. Namaste.* --Thnidu (talk) 19:59, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

* Well, one or two. :-)

  • Thanks for pointing that out, Thnidu. I have created a quick and dirty stub at upachara. Hopefully other will help expand, improve, categorize etc. Pinging @Redtigerxyz: who is knowledgeable and active in the area. Cheers. Abecedare (talk) 21:22, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Thnidu, upachara has multiple meaning. Can you please throw in some light on the context/article in question. --Redtigerxyz Talk 04:50, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
Redtigerxyz, as I said in my original comment in this §, I found the word in Namaste. It's in the 2nd ¶ of § Namaste#Uses. As Abecedare says, they've created a stub for it. --Thnidu (talk) 01:02, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
Thnidu, sorry I missed it. When I read Namaste, I thought it as a greeting, rather than an article. Abecedare's article is accurate and solves the problem for now. --Redtigerxyz Talk 06:06, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Category: Hindu religious workers[edit]

My personal impression is that Category:Hindu religious workers has become quite a mess. It also seems like Christian occupation categories (saints, monks, priests, religious leaders) have been imposed here while they are not applicable the same way. Could you please have a look if you see a way to improve the categorization? Marcocapelle (talk) 15:39, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
