I'm a bit puzzled by this edit which removed
*[[Kargil (district)|Kargil]] from the list of districts and changed
[[Category:Indian divisions]] to
I'm not entirely convinced that we need to break Ladakh into sub-divisions at all but, if we do, I would have thought a sub-region centred around the second largest town and a pre-existing administrative district is a fairly natural one...
Similarly, I've yet to be convinced that we need categories at all - if we do, presumably it should be categorised as both, because although for all practical purposes, India administers the disputed territory, Pakistani hearts are very attached to this area. If we only have one category then it seems pretty obvious it should be that of the de facto administration: India.

- You're not wrong! We do expose ourselves to these sort of political zealots by having visible categories such as "Indian/Pakistani divisions" and my feeling is that they should be "hidden" categories if they are needed at all - see my recent post at the Travellers' Pub...
