"One of the most impressive sights in the world"
=="One of the most impressive sights in the world"==
I think very few non-Hindus would consider people bathing in the Ganges to be "one of the most impressive sights in the world." Indeed, Google searches reveal that many people who visit Varanasi are not enthralled. I personally thought Varanasi was a sewer, and would not recommend that others visit it. Unless someone can give me a good reason to maintain the language in the current article that seems like a travel agent touting Varanasi, I believe the article should include my edits, which Ikan deleted. I will revert back to them tomorrow.{{unsigned|}} :I'm not a Hindu nor even less a travel agent, and I found the view from a boat on the Ganges amazing and my visit to Varanasi perhaps the most fascinating of any of the places in India I visited (the others were Delhi, Agra, Fatehpur, Khajuraho, Sarnath, Srinagar, and Amritsar, and all of them had merit). That was in 1977, and I doubt the river was clean then, though it wouldn't surprise me if it's dirtier now. But in any case, I think we need to establish a consensus, not engage in a continued edit war. Let's wait for the comments of other people and see what they think. Also, it's traditional to sign posts on "talk" pages by typing 4 tildes (the "~" key) in a row at the end.  :All the best, :[[User:Ikan Kekek|Ikan Kekek]] 03:48, 11 October 2011 (EDT) It's not an issue of who's right and who's wrong. It's a matter of neutrality. There is no consensus that Varanasi has "one of the most impressive sights in the world" or that it is a "must visit." Many people feel differently. Regards. {{unsigned|}} : Wikitravel does not follow Wikipedia's policy on neutrality - see [[Wikitravel:Be fair]] for the appropriate guideline. Per [[Wikitravel:Consensus]], if an edit is in dispute please leave the original text in place and discuss the change rather than changing and re-changing it. -- [[User:Wrh2|wrh2]] 11:45, 11 October 2011 (EDT)
