Bad named images Image:Bupleurum subovatum2.JPG and Image:Bupleurum subovatum1.JPG[edit]

Hello, if you've uploaded an image and it have to be renamed please upload it again with different name, and put {{Bad name|new image name}} to the description page of the old one. Thanks --GeorgHHtalk   15:25, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Strange edit[edit]

Hi Gidip, do you have an explanation for this edit at COM:QIC which caused an entry to be corrupted? Regards, AFBorchert (talk) 12:03, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

I just came across this report. Apparently a Skype-supporting Firefox extension is causing this strange effect. --AFBorchert (talk) 12:06, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
Very strange indeed... I have no idea how this happened. I apologise for the corruption. Gidip (talk) 18:15, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Hello Gideon,

first of all thank you for this! I`ve allready thought that my identification was not correct and so I have started an ID request just yesterday. There it was suggested that it could be a Melecta luctuosa. I've searched a bit and after looking for it in the www I also would say that it either could be that than my identification. Can you maybe confirm this? Because I would like to rename it with the best name if it is possible. So thanks again and best regards mathias K 04:30, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi Mathias. I am not skilled enough to determine it to species level (even to genus). I suggest you contact en:user:JelleD, he's a real expert. And mention the location - it helps for the ID. Gidip (talk) 05:32, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Hi Gideon, thank's for your fast answer! I will ask en:user:JelleD for further helping. For the location i always add the geo coordinates template. So thank's again, regards mathias K 06:19, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
I've searched but I can't find any en:user:JelleD. Did I've done something wrong or are there any other mistakes? Regards mathias K 06:28, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
OK, ignore my last post. ;-) I´ve found him. The User & Talk page were just empty... Thanks again and regards mathias K 06:39, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

chêne glands, QIC page, consensual review[edit]

Hi Gidip.

I've tried to improve the picture according to your wishes. Do you think it is better now and enough for QI? Thanks in advance for another review! Cheers from Paris,--Jebulon (talk) 00:00, 9 September 2011 (UTC)


Hipparchia pisidice 1.jpg[edit]

Bonjour Gidip In "Hipparchia pisidice 1.jpg"

  • If you write Hipparchia pisidice between [[]] you refer to a gallery that does not exist in commons. You can create it is a good idea.
  • If you write with the syntax that I change then you refer to the category
  • If you want to refer to Wikipedia (en) so you have written Hipparchia pisidice

--Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 08:27, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

D'accord, merci bien. Gidip (talk) 08:55, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Reviews in QIC[edit]

Hi Gidip,

Thanks for reviews for "my" plants from the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. I'm not sure I understand very well what you mean, I've tried to show the more specific of the specimens I've seen, I'm not a specialist as you can see. I hope my picture could be useful or interesting, whith a reasonably good quality, that's why I submit them in the QIC page. Do you think that the plants you reviewed are not "individualized" enough, or something ? Anyway, thanks for the time you spend.--Jebulon (talk) 17:17, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
Hi. Looking at your user page, I don't think I have to explain to you anything about photography (-:
Anyway, the photos I reviewed don't really have a centre of attention, the photo with the leaves is totally flat, and the second one also doesn't have a clear "subject". Try to select parts of the plants that are nicely framed in a rectangle, not a random crop of some part of the plant. You can also read here. Gidip (talk) 20:34, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello Gidip, would you please help me. I do'nt know what is the correct formulation in the commons-gallery Platanthera holmboei. There is a change of deleting and undeleting of the link to Israel in the moment. My question: Where did you photographed your pictures? Is "Ya'ar Odem" a location? Should the link only go to Golan Heights? Thanks for your interest and greetings. Orchi (talk) 12:05, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

This is all political bullshit. The Golan Heights have been conquered and illegally annexed by Israel. Before the conquest they were in Syria. So Arabs get angry when we write that it is in Israel. So there are edit war between Israelis and Arabs. This is what you see. Don't get too upset about it. Many Israel-related articles and media here suffer the same problem. All the best, Gidip (talk) 14:13, 21 November 2011 (UTC).
I think simply writing "Golan Heights" without mentioning any country can be a good resolution to these problems, like the way the page is now. Gidip (talk) 14:15, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
Hello Gidip, I thank you for your answer and wise proposal. Hope we, that the world will become something more peacefull by Wikipedia. Greetings. Orchi (talk) 19:10, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Re:Image guidelines - downsampling[edit]

Sorry, my english is too bad. I can read, but I need translators to write. I need 10-20 minutes to understand what you've written in Commons:Village pump and I am not always able to understand.

I am interested in the discussion, but I'm not able to participate. On the other hand, I think that this discussion has already been made in Commons, I only found Commons talk:Image guidelines#Downsampling and colour spaces and Commons talk:Image guidelines#Downsampling, again, but I can't understand all.

Thanks. I have the same problem that you: I propose habitually 15-21 megapixel images and they are reviewed as images with 3 or 4 megapixel. Sorry, to say more I need speak Galician language, spanish or portuguesh. Greetins--Miguel Bugallo 18:12, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

I forgot to say that normaly I love your images.--Miguel Bugallo 18:16, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the message Miguel! Gidip (talk) 18:18, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Hi Gidip,
I think the discussion you started should have find a better place here, but no problem, I've answered and given my opinion which is the same as yours. Please notice (follow the link provided by me, it is very interesting) that we had the same (almost) discussion regarding the FPC candidates.
Cheers from Paris.--Jebulon (talk) 23:06, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. Gidip (talk) 06:26, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the crop suggestions[edit]

Hi Gidip:

Thank you for the crop suggestions. Now I started to re crop and update the images. Please check them and give your valued suggestions. My previous uploads are from flickr and there images are tightly cropped to show maximum subject details even in small sizes.

Thanks, Jee. Jkadavoor (talk) 09:18, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

With pleasure. Gidip (talk) 09:56, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

QI, if nominator is not uploader[edit]

I see that you commented that if I am not the uploader/creator of the image, I should mention that in each nomination. Can I know why because I do not see that requirement in the guidelines? --Sreejith K (talk) 12:17, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

It's not a formal rule, but it's good for transparency. If someone other than the creator nominates an image, then the creator himself can promote the image. Formally that's OK, but it's better to be transparent as much as possible. This is my advice, and this is what is usually adhered to in QIC. Gidip (talk) 13:24, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Makes sense. Do you think its a good idea to fake the uploaders signature there? Mentioning a description and the uploaders name + my signature will make the text quite long. --Sreejith K (talk) 14:54, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
No. Just add "by Jkavadoor" after the description and before your signature. That's not too long. Gidip (talk) 14:58, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
✓ Done - That was a good suggestion. I appreciate your help. --Sreejith K (talk) 15:30, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. Gidip (talk) 15:58, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Colletes[edit]

Greetings Gidip You could try here [1] for Hymenoptera ids All the best from Ireland Notafly (talk) 21:18, 28 February 2012 (UTC)Ps Suberb pic

Thanks! I actually collected a few specimens at the site and I will send them to a Colletes specialist (M. Kuhlmann) later this year, so hopefully I'll have the correct ID. Identifying from pictures is problematic... Gidip (talk) 22:19, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

bombyliidae ID[edit]

Greetings Gidip,

Unfortunately I am unable to ID this photo. I'm sure it is a bombyliidae, but I don't have knowledge of the group to identify the genus. Have you tried bugguide?

Regards,Leonardo (talk) 00:50, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

OK, thanks anyway. I will try bugguide. Do you know of any other Dipteran experts in Commons? Gidip (talk) 01:03, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm not aware of any other experts. Leonardo (talk) 17:41, 12 March 2012 (UTC)


Bombyliidae id[edit]

Greetings Gideon Post it and other Diptera here for expert id http://www.diptera.info/news.php Notafly (talk) 20:18, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

I tried to, but I can't register to the site )-: Thanks anyway. Gidip (talk) 20:19, 25 March 2012 (UTC)

Try again.Here- http://www.diptera.info/register.php . The site sometimes has difficulties due to it's size and volume of traffic. It is, however, by far the best Diptera site with many experts. If you fail I can, I hope, post the image on your behalf. Robert aka Notafly (talk) 13:04, 26 March 2012 (UTC) The fly is almost certainly Bombylius sp. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombylius Do you have other images showing the wing pattern?

Unfortunately I don't. I will try again and notify you. Thanks a lot! Gidip (talk) 12:02, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Wikimedia Picture of the Day interview?[edit]

Hi Gidip,

My name is Alice Roberts and I'm a communications intern with the Wikimedia Foundation in San Francisco. We're starting a new feature on the Foundation blog [2] to profile the photographers behind the beautiful photos that become Picture of the Day (POTD) on the Commons home page. You can see some of our past POTD posts here: https://blog.wikimedia.org/c/communications/picture-of-the-day/

Given that your "Haetosmia male" photo is scheduled for 24 October 2012, we'd love to do a short interview with you either by phone, Skype, or email to discuss your work and your POTD. Please let me know if you think you'd be interested! You can reach me on my talkpage or by email at aroberts@wikimedia.org Thanks, Aroberts (WMF) (talk) 22:26, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Too much info[edit]

[3] Because this is a page for describing a picture briefly, putting too much information in here will cause seriously unbalanced Main page in some Wikipedia. For example, if there's no describe for Potd in Korean, Korean Wikipedia shows English description. (Please check the same picture at ko:위키백과:오늘의 그림.) You can put a detailed information in the File's page, so can you just move that description? Thanks :D --관인생략 (talk) 15:17, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

Hi. I don't think that's a problem, and anyway I am not the first one to put a detailed description in POTD. You can raise this issue in the discussion of the guidelines for POTD, so there will be a uniform policy for all pictures. Best wishes, Gidip (talk) 15:51, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

סוגי צלפים[edit]

זיהוי חרדל[edit]

היי,

שינית את הזיהוי של החרדל שצילמתי מחרדל שדה לחרדל לבן. מדוע?

--SuperJew (talk) 13:29, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

שיניתי עוד הרבה זיהויים. מן הראוי שתבדוק היטב את ההגדרות של התמונות שאתה מעלה. אני לא יכול להסביר לך איך מגדירים כל צמח וחרק. תשתמש במגדיר הצמחים של פיינברון ודנין, אתר צמחיית ישראל ברשת, מגדיר הפרפרים של בנימיני, וכדומה. או שתבקש עזרה ממשתמשים אחרים לפני שאתה מגדיר תמונות. אין טעם שתנסה להגדיר לפי השוואה לתמונות אחרות או לפי ספרות פופולרית. המצב כרגע הוא שאתה מגדיר תמונות לא נכון וכך סתם מטעה אנשים שרוצים להשתמש בתמונות, וחבל.
דבר נוסף - כדאי לבדוק לאיזה אורגניזמים חסרות תמונות ולא להעלות סתם תמונות לא נחוצות עבור אורגניזמים שכבר יש עבורם די והותר תמונות.
Gidip (talk) 13:59, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
נשמה,
כל מה שיש לי כדי לבדוק הגדרות זה לפי אינטרנט, חברים שהיו איתי בטיול, ותמונות להשוואה. ואני לא הולך להטריח משתמשים על כל תמונה ותמונה שאני מעלה.
אם אתה רוצה לתקן הגדרה, תעשה זאת בצורה מנומסת ונאותה, כשאתה מסביר מדוע אתה חושב שההגדרה שלך נכונה ושלי שגויה בדף השיחה של הערך או שלי ואז אם נסכים נשנה את זה.
איני מטעה אנשים שרוצים להשתמש בתמונות בכוונה, אלא בטעות. שנאמר, שיט הפנס
דבר נוסף, אני צילמתי את התמונות שהייתי בטיולים, ואלה האורגניזמים שראיתי. מאוד מצטער שהם לא תמונות של אורגניזמים שחסרות תמונות, למרות שברוב האלה שהעלתי לא ראיתי הרבה תמונות בקטגוריה. לא נראה כי בישראל יש הרבה אנשים שמעלים תמונות...
--SuperJew (talk) 14:51, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
אז אם תבדוק באתר "צמחיית ישראל ברשת" תראה שהזיהויים שלך לא נכונים. לאגס סורי יש עלים צרים וארוכים. כלנית לא פורחת בסוף מרץ באזור יהודה. לגבי הפרפרים כבר הסברתי, נימפיות קשה מאד לזהות לרמת המין ואין טעם להתיימר שזה מין מסוים אם זה לא ידוע. אתה מוזמן להסתכל על התמונות שהעליתי כאן ובאתרים אחרים בתקווה שתשתכנע שיש לי קצת ניסיון והזיהויים שלי הם הנכונים.
אני כן ממליץ שתבדוק מראש עם משתמשים אחרים את נכונות הזיהויים שלך, פרחים וחרקים אתה מוזמן לבדוק איתי אם אתה רוצה. אפשר גם ב"הכה את המומחה" בויקיפדיה.
אפשרות נוספת - תעלה את התמונות לקטגוריות כלליות, למשל
Flora of Israel, Insects of Israel
ואחרים כבר ימיינו את זה משם.
בברכה, Gidip (talk) 16:11, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
אכן הסתכלתי באתר וכמו שזכרתי מהפעם שהסתכלתי כשניגשתי לבדוק את הגדרת הפרח, כלנית אכן פורחת עד אפריל, וכפי שטיילנו במרץ זה סביר שזאת הייתה כלנית.
מה גם הייתי במקום וראיתי את עלי הגביע (שלא נראים בתמונה) והם היו למטה, כמו במשל הידוע של הנסיכות עם התחתונים המופשלים שכל מדריך טיולים יודע לספר.
לגבי האגס, אני רואה את הפואנטה שלך לגבי העלים.
זה גדל בגינה פרטית, אז אין צורך אני מניח להגביל למינים הגדלים בר בישראל.
אולי זהו אגס אירופאי (Pyrus communis)?
לגבי הנימפית, הסתכל נא באתר זה ותראה שרק שני סוגים תפוצתם באיזור יהודה: נימפית ירושלים ונימפית המדבר. תשווה בין התמונות שלהם לבין התמונות שלי ותראה בבירור שהפרפר שצילמתי הוא נימפית ירושלים, שכן נימפית המדבר עם גוף הרבה פחות שעיר, סימנים שונים על הכנפיים וזווית החזקת הכנפיים שונה.
ולא חזרת אליי בקשר לחרדל. אודה לך אם תוכל
בברכה, SuperJew (talk) 18:22, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
אין לי שמץ של ספק לגבי הנורית/כלנית. גם לפי צורת העלים וגם צורת מרכז הפרח מראים שזו נורית. כלנית לעולם לא פורחת בסוף מרץ בהרי יהודה אלא רק במקומות מאד מעטים כמו הר מירון, החרמון והר הנגב. אם אתה לא סומך עליי כתוב בבקשה בקשת זיהוי באתר "צמחיית ישראל ברשת" או ב"הכה את המומחה" בויקיפדיה ונראה איזה תשובה תקבל.
האגס יכול להיות גם שזיף וכדומה, מעבר למשפחת הורדיים לא ניתן לומר הרבה אם לא ראית פרי. אם ראית שזה אכן אגס אז אגס אירופאי זה הכי סביר. גם העלים יכולים להתאים למין זה.
לגבי הנימפית - שכנעת אותי. דרך אגב גם נימפית הבוצין מעופפת באזור זה.
מיני החרדל נבדלים בצורת הפרי, לחרדל לבן פרי שטוח בצורת פגיון ולחרדל השדה פרי בצורת גליל.
אם תחום העניין העיקרי שלך הוא ביולוגיה כפי שנרמז מהדף שלך ואתה מתעניין בטבע - ממליץ לך לקנות מגדיר צמחים טוב. יש רק אחד - המגדיר של פיינברון ודנין. Gidip (talk) 18:41, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
הסתכלתי שוב על תמונות של נוריות וכלניות והחלטתי שהצדק איתך ושיניתי בהתאם.
לגבי החרדל, קשה לראות מהתמונה שלי, אבל אני בטוח שהפרי היה בצורת גליל.
תודות, --SuperJew (talk) 17:26, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
בתמונה שלך רואים בבירור את השערות הלבנות על הפירות (מכאן השם חרדל לבן) וגם את צורת הפגיון. תשווה לתמונות בצמחיית ישראל ברשת. אין כאן ספק. Gidip (talk) 19:09, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
אתה מתכוון לפירות לאורך הגבעול, ולא בין עלי הכותרת? SuperJew (talk) 19:45, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
נכון, מה שבין עלי הכותרת עוד לא הספיק להתפתח Gidip (talk) 19:04, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

עזרה בזיהוי פרחים בנטף ובבית זית[edit]

אשמח לעזרתך

תודה --SuperJew (talk) 16:17, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

1 זקן-סב מצוי או זקן-תיש ארוך
2,3,5 ורד ממין לא ידוע, צמח תרבות
ללא מספר - אשחר ארץ-ישראלי ויחידות הפצה של זלזלת הקנוקנות
6 חלמית מצויה או מעוג כרתי - לא ניתן לקבוע מהתמונה. המשפחה היא חלמיתיים
4 תלתן ארגמן וקחוון - לא ניתן לקבוע את המין
אולי בפורום של "צמחיית ישראל ברשת" יצליחו יותר טוב עם 1 ו-6
Gidip (talk) 18:58, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
1 נראה לי יותר זקן-סב מצוי מבחינת הצבע וסידור העלים
2,3,5 יכול להיות ורד הכלב?
6 נראה לי יותר כמו מעוג, בעיקר בגלל הגבעול. תשווה לדוג' לתמונה זאת:
חלמית מצויה
4 לעיניי נראה כמו קחוון מצוי או חברוני. כיצד מבדילים ביניהם?
--SuperJew (talk) 20:06, 22 April 2013 (UTC)
קחוונים מזהים לפי צורת הזרעונים שאי אפשר לראות אצלך. כנ"ל ההבדל בין זקן סב לזקן תיש. חלמיתיים מזהים לפי הגביעון של הפרח. עדיף שתציב את השאלות למומחים בצמחיית ישראל ברשת ולא תנסה להגדיר לבד לפי דמיון לתמונות אחרות. הגדרה על פי דמיון בין תמונות היא לא שיטה טובה ומובילה לעתים קרובות לזיהויים שגויים. Gidip (talk) 03:17, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
הורד בבית זית הוא כנראה ורד הכלב, כי שם צולם גם באתר של דנין. לגבי נטף פחות בטוח. האם הורדים גדלו בשטח טבעי ונראים צמחי בר, או שנשתלו בצידי הדרך וכדומה? ורד הכלב גדל בר באזור הזה אבל לא נפוץ. אם זה צמח שתול זה בוודאי מין אחר שלא מוזכר באתרי אינטרנט המוקדשים לצמחי בר. Gidip (talk) 03:26, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
הורדים גדלו בשטח בר... זה היה ממש טיול בדרך פראית :) --SuperJew (talk) 12:45, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
אז ורד הכלב ככל הנראה Gidip (talk) 14:38, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
האם הבנת מהדיון בפורום מהם הזיהויים הנכונים ל1 ו6? --SuperJew (talk) 17:54, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
6 הוא מעוג כרתי בגלל השעירות. לגבי 1 כדאי לחכות עוד כמה ימים, אולי עוד יענו. Gidip (talk) 19:02, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

QI Review[edit]

Hi Gidip. I startet shooting insects some weeks ago. Two of my pictures of insects, a bee and a beetle are actually nominated for QI (Jul, 26). As you have a good experience in that field, I would strongly appreciate your review and comments. Could you please have a look at these nominations? Thank you in advance, --Sputniktilt (talk) 15:34, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi. You have some nice pictures! Catching bees in flight is no easy thing, usually you need many trials and eventually select only a few. I strongly recommend using a flash, preferably with a disperser. Good luck! Gidip (talk) 23:41, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your review - I see the problem with the flying bee. btw: I made some shots with flash, but first, it creates an unnatural light ambiance (ok, that's a question of taste and experience), and second---and that's the bigger issue--- a flashlight disturb bees. Flashing around in the middle of a dozen hard working bees drives them crazy. Instead of working and flying easy around, they start to fly bizarre paths, what makes it very difficult to get a good picture. But I'll go on ;-) But first, I did some shots more during the last two days, focusing on better (natural) light and composition. Two of them 12 are actually QI candidates (Aug. 1st). It would be cool if you could have a look on them, too. Take care, --Sputniktilt (talk) 21:21, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

FPC closings[edit]

Hi Gidip, thanks a lot for your help, but unfortunately you forgot to include recently promoted pictures in FP galleries by topic. It is always helpful to use this manual: Commons:Featured picture candidates/What to do after voting is finished. Pictures should be in that galleries, and also in Commons:Featured pictures/chronological/current month (which basically will be needed for POTY). Thanks --A.Savin 06:28, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

I did not forget, there is a limit to how much of the bot's work a person can do on his own voluntarily. What I did took me almost two hours. So each nominator can complete this on his own. The FPC page got seriously overloaded and this couldn't go on much longer. With best wishes, Gidip (talk) 08:29, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Thymbra spicata[edit]

Hi Gidi, I was reading up on za'atar where they mention Thymbra spicata for which there seems to be little information out there, for example even finding out its common name in languages is difficult, turns out in Greek it's called θρούμπι — a name it shares with Satureja thymbra, and in Turkish it shares names with 'normal' thyme, on an Israeli site it's called 'צתרנית משובלת' but I couldn't get a meaningful translation of it through google, 'צתרה' is apparently savory. How common is this spiked thyme in Israel? I found your image of it on the German wiki and I was wondering if you have other images as well, but not close-ups?! Thanks! Fnugh (talk) 16:53, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I don't think it's very common. As a spice it's considered a poor substitute for Majorana syriaca. I might have other images but these are old photos and I don't know when I'll have time to look for them. Cheers, Gidip (talk) 18:39, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, Gidi, well, if you ever find them or take new ones feel free to share :) Fnugh (talk) 08:17, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Hey Gidi, can I ask you a favour to identify some plants I've seen on Street View in Israel? The first is the high grass that's on both sides of the tree here http://goo.gl/maps/NOfnm and the blossoming trees here http://goo.gl/maps/vYKmR. Many thanks! Fnugh (talk)

hi. I think the grass is Pennisetum and the tree is Bougainvillea. Gidip (talk) 11:41, 22 December 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, Gidi, is the white flowering tree also a Bougainvillea?! Wish you also a Happy New Year and all the best!
It seems so... Happy new year! Gidip (talk) 20:00, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

"Happy Diwali!"[edit]

While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning behind it is "the awareness of the inner light". It is the belief that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atman. The celebration of Diwali as the "victory of good over evil” refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one's true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality. With this awakening come compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). This brings Satcitananda (joy or peace). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light. While the story behind Diwali and the manner of celebration varies from region to, the essence is the same – to rejoice in the Inner Light! And this year Diwali and All Souls' Day come together to fully defeat the Evil! "Happy Diwali!"JKadavoor Jee 06:16, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

I also wish you a very very happy and prosperous diwali. --Joydeep Talk 06:25, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
