Bishakha ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Sankar Viswanathan <sankarru...@gmail.com> Date: Thu, Mar 10, 2011 at 10:54 PM Subject: Discussion about deletion of a photo To: Bishakha Datta <bishakhada...@gmail.com> Hello Bishakha, I am facing a problem. Please go through this discussion. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Deletion_requests/File:Mahasaraswati.jpg Unfortunately this would mean that we can not upload the photograph of any old Indian painting or sculpture to Wiki Commons. Most of the photographs existing now would have to be deleted. This will only mean that the articles in Wikipedia would be poorer in content. Being Paranoid about copyright is not the way to improve Wikipedia. The most affected would be articles about Hinduism, for which even now there are very few takers. I was wondering whether you could help. Thank you, Sankar Service to Humanity is Service to God
