Dear Beria,

Here is the message this user left:
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Noopur28#Your_uploads_in_December_2011.2C_referring_to_India_:_Categorisation


My logic for adding 3-4 categories was that people usually search by
keywords and not inside larger categories. So I would add around 3-4
categories. But, then this user told me to stick to larger parent
categories. I am still unsure which is a better way so I stick to only
India or a state category now.
