As a consequence, the Paisley pattern has long symbolic associations with the town. Until the Jacquard loom was introduced in the 1820s, weaving was a cottage industry.

traditional knowledge

Raj colonial times in India hunting was regarded as a wikt:regal sport in the numerous princely states, as many maharajas, nawabs, as well as British officers maintained a whole corps of shikari (shikari (disambiguation))s, who were native professional hunters. They would be headed by a master of the hunt, who might be styled mir-shikar. Often these were recruited from the normally low-ranking local tribes because of their traditional knowledge of the environment and hunting techniques. Big game, such as Bengal tigers (Bengal Tiger), might be hunted from the back of an elephant.

historical interpretation

research articles should be deleted. These articles do not display any evidence, ''in the form of references'', that they are anything other than novel narrative or historical interpretation (WP:NOR)s. As such, even if every bullet point were verified, the articles would still constitute original research. The China article is just barely an exception, because it links to a story that has both the words "China" and "superpower" in the title. Even there, the source does not support the article, and its mere presence doesn't vindicate the original research going on. If any of these articles is deleted, your work will not have been in vain; it will have served as an example of the kinds of research we don't do. Melchoir (User:Melchoir) 21:07, 8 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Merge''' anything that can be salvaged into India, China, and European Union. Failing that, '''delete'''. --Descendall (User:Descendall) 13:33, 8 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Conditional Keep''' if it can be shown that it is not original research (some references which says that India, China and EU are the potential superpowers).--Raghu (User:Raghu.kuttan) 13:53, 8 March 2006 (UTC) *Interesting read, unsourced, appears to be original analysis. '''Delete''' - OR. Guettarda (User:Guettarda) 21:49, 8 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Delete''' as crystalballism after merging any worthy content to other relevant articles such as India, Superpower, etc. dbtfz (User:Dbtfz) talk (User talk:Dbtfz) 21:53, 8 March 2006 (UTC) * '''Strong delete''' Unreferenced and speculative in the extreme. If kept, move to NPOV and non-asserting title such as "Global status of India" - currently the title is an unequivocal statement that India is a potential superpower, which is problematic at best. FCYTravis (User:FCYTravis) 22:20, 8 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Delete all unless rewritten'''. IMHO it will serve Wikipedia better to simply delete all these articles and reboot (reboot (continuity)) them at a later stage with proper references. Zunaid (User:Zunaid) 09:38, 9 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Strong Delete''' An encyclopedia should talk about Superpower and it should talk about India, China, etc... And in the context of either of those two discussions, it may be considered reasonable to mention something along the lines of what these articles are trying to achieve. But to push them separately into their own article crosses the boundaries of POV & original research. Eusebeus (User:Eusebeus) 11:52, 9 March 2006 (UTC) * '''Delete all''', crystal-ballism. Vizjim (User:Vizjim) 14:08, 9 March 2006 (UTC) Changing vote to '''transwiki''', in line with Oneearth (User:Oneearth)'s suggestion below. Vizjim (User:Vizjim) 17:29, 14 March 2006 (UTC) **So in many of your minds, Wikipedia should go no without in depth acknowledgement of the power India, China and the European Union have. Re-read the articles, if you see anything un-mathematical or un-sourced that deals with the future then delete that bit. But what most of the article is, is an acknowledgement and list of the plus and minus points of a nation which will undoubtedly be helpful to the reader. Wikipedia can be the best NPOV source of information in relation to Potential Superpowers or it can just pretend to ignore this importan matter. The choice is for the voters!Nobleeagle (User:Nobleeagle) 05:38, 12 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Delete''' based on the fact that even though it is entirely factually, it is still drawing a conclusion based on facts. It is an assessment of something that may happen in the future; this has no place in the Wikipedia. This could be a sub-section of India at the very least. This reads like someones report or an article from The Economist or Time magazine. If this article is encyclopedia material, maybe we could have an article on Future Millionaires- Me or more seriously, Future Wars- Fiji Vs. Eritrea (entirely supported my facts, of course). Delete, please. DevanJedi (User:Devanjedi) 06:16, 12 March 2006 (UTC) **'''Comment'''I doubt you'll get as many sources for Fiji and Eritrea when compared to the sources and obvious media speculation on China and India.

Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four religions—Hinduism (Hinduism in India), Buddhism (History of Buddhism in India), Jainism (Jainism in India), and Sikhism (Sikhism in India)—originated here, whereas Judaism, Zoroastrianism (Parsi), Christianity (Christianity in India), and Islam (Islam in India) arrived in the 1st millennium CE (Common Era) and also helped shape the region's diverse culture (Culture of India). Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company (Company rule in India) from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom (British Raj) after Indian Rebellion of 1857, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence (Indian independence movement) that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi).

India is a federal (Federalism) constitutional republic governed under a parliamentary system consisting of 29 states and 7 union territories (States and territories of India).
