Aryan Invasion Theory
>> The Indus Valley civilization, one of the oldest in the world, goes back at least 5,000 years. Aryan tribes from the northwest invaded about 1500 B.C.; their merger with the earlier inhabitants created the classical Indian culture. <<
The Aryan invasion theory has had serious rethink in the past couple of decades.
"The bources have crossed their 3 year highs". What are "bources"? Bourses? (Purses, or stock markets?) Sources? -phma 17:15, 9 Dec 2003 (PST)
"Women in India feign from contact with western men." Huh? How does someone pretend from contact? -phma 22:56, 12 Jan 2004 (EST)
Srijith, why did you remove the remark about giving food to beggars, and the remark about the fact that the crushing of bottles is adviced by some, but that the bottles are also used for other purposes, such as storing petrol? Could you leave a note on the Talk page when removing information next time? Guaka
--- Can I just say how much I like how this country is set up? The way the states/districts/cities are dealt with is exactly (IMHO) what we want-- pick out a few to highlight, give an overview of the whole country, and, if absolutly needed, link to a big ol' list of states/districts. For an article I was really afraid of, this is coming along just great.

However times have changed and Indian Airlines now flies to destinations in the middle east.
There are no 3rd Class services in the Indian Railways only 2nd Class. The 3rd class existed a long time ago, its now abolished. If you are wondering why some compartments have wooden benches while some have cushioned upholstery, the difference is between the RESERVED compartments and the UN-RESERVED ones.
By the way do you know that the Indian Railways is the world's largest employer!

General question about updates:
Suppose I want to add some information about (say) the Qutab Minar in Delhi, and I find some info links that come off a travel agent's page. is it appropriate to add a link to this page, or is that unwarranted advertising ? Schizoid 14:35, 27 Feb 2004 (EST)
Do we have a better, travel-related photo for India? I'd remove this one, it's not really travel-centric. Last time people complained loudly, if unjustified, about my removal practices and I am too old and tired to argue about Wikitravel. -- Nils 10:19, 19 Apr 2004 (EDT)
The formatting looks awkward. I am too noobie to change this. -- pamri
People, the list of holidays is very misleading, even with the disclaimer at the bottom. Hindu holidays never occur on the same day from year to year. Is it there for some reason already discussed or is just because of inertia? If it is the former, tell me or I will be editing it to conform to reality tomorrow. Ravikiran 05:16, 13 Jan 2005 (EST)
