Hi Praveen-ji - I'm sorry, but I had to delete the information that you added to the Kallil Temple article because it was a direct copy from Wikipedia and this contravenes the copy right policy - see: Wikitravel:copyleft. Also, temples and monasteries do not get their own articles, but are incorporated into the article for the nearest center of population. Therefore, I have redirected the Kallil Temple page to Kalady. If you're interested to read more about this policy, please check the following article: Wikitravel:What is an article? and for a specific information about monasteries, you might like to read the discussion on the following Talk Page: Wikitravel talk:What is an article?. Anyway, again apologies for deleting your efforts, but I hope you can understand the reasons for my doing so. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks a lot.

Hi WindHorse, OK, I got it. But the reason, you know, I thought its cool for wikipedia. They are not putting any copyright for articles and says it free to take. Fact is that I never explored their polocies, coz simply believed that its free. (Lot of others also are in my way).
About Kallil temple, that couldn't be avoided as it is a miracle, not so much known. Better you put an external link to wiwkipedia. Thanks for your interception.
This thing (reply format) is not proper. My fault ?? Praveen757 23:56, 27 December 2006 (EST)
(I fixed your formatting -- no biggie). Actually, all Wikipedia articles are copyrighted -- but you are permitted to reproduce them as long as you obey the terms of the license. Check the bottom of any Wikipedia page for the fine details. Basically the copyright and license are used as a way to make sure no one tries to rip off Wikipedia content in a way that Wikipedia does not like. -- Colin

Hey Praveen-ji - no problem. You are correct. Wikipedia articles are free, but as Colin stated there is also a copyright of sorts. However, please feel free to write a few more lines about the temple on the 'get out' section of Kalady. I just put some very basic information there. By the way, after you write a message, you can sign your name by adding four squiggles like this ~. That will automatically add your name. WindHorse 00:04, 28 December 2006 (EST)
