This is a set of aggressive policies developed over time by a large
wiki.  In the early days of English WP, when it was the size that
Tamil WP is now, this was certainly not the case for well-meaning

I do not know that the current en:wp policies represent best practices
-- the research from the strategy project suggests that they are
limiting growth and editor retention -- and in particular smaller
wikis may have other needs and priorities.

Of course ta:wp is welcome to adopt any policies that you wish, but I
would not advise doing so simply because the English Wikipedia does.
