“Hindupedia” scrapes CIA Factbook for content

Sagarika Ghose

Alas, poor True Indology@TrueIndology on Twitter had some kind of bad experience with Wikipedia. No link, so it’s pretty hard to judge, but it seems there is plenty of sympathy from the peanut gallery in India.

Everything about Wikipedia is wrong, from Eklavya and the Dalit-thumb theory, to medicinal plants from ayurved always being  listed as originating in another country.  And even worse, they make Sagarika Ghose look like the best journalist this universe has ever produced.  Leftists have iron grip on it.  No more donating.   Time for an Indian answer to Wikipedia.

Finally someone posts a link to “Hindupedia”.

So what is this Hindupedia?  I browse, looking for signs of women.  In agriculture perhaps?

According to the Hindpedia page for agriculture:

The Indus Valley civilization, one of the world’s oldest, flourished during the 3rd and 2nd millennia B.C. and extended into northwestern India. Aryan tribes from the northwest infiltrated onto the Indian subcontinent about 1500 B.C.; their merger with the earlier Dravidian inhabitants created the classical Indian culture.

But what is this?  According to the CIA World Factbook:

The Indus Valley civilization, one of the world’s oldest, flourished during the 3rd and 2nd millennia B.C. and extended into northwestern India. Aryan tribes from the northwest infiltrated onto the Indian subcontinent about 1500 B.C.; their merger with the earlier Dravidian inhabitants created the classical Indian culture.

No attribution.

Kinda solves the lefty problem though, doesn’t it.
