Talk:India - भारत
Moved to proper language (Hindi being administrative official) article title. gren 09:02, 2 Jun 2005 (UTC)
- This should be about functionality. Almost nobody (amend that: nobody, period) out there is typing "Bharat" in Devanagari script when looking for India. Wikipedia is not governed by the Indian constitution and I have therefore been bold, redirected back to "India" and repaired double redirects. Long overdue, IMO.

- Why was this moved without discussion? It is not a question of constitution, it is an issue that names of galleries of countries should be in native names when possible. India does not belong to the English-speaking world, and commons (in difference to say en.wikipedia.org) is a multilingual wiki. Bharat is the name used officially in all indian languages, and devanagari is by far the most widely used script in India. --Soman 12:31, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
Unfortunately, this is not an Indian site. It is used by worldwide users, most who are not Indian and do not refer to the nation as Bharat.Indianhilbilly 22:30, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
- Fortunately this is not an English site either, and the policy here is that we use the native name when it's possible. Non-Indian users will find the page through redirects, so there's no problem about functionality. I'll be bold and re-rename it. Aaker 00:13, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
Why would Hindi be considered the proper language of India? Many would disagree.
