Welcome to Indpaedia
Almost every day the Hon’ble Supreme Court: India
and the Judiciary, superior: India
pass orders of interest to all readers. These are archived on the relevant page, e.g. Divorce: India
and Television: India
In addition, there are pages on Judicial delays/ pendency: India
, Supreme Court, India: Administrative issues
, Supreme Court: India: Chief Justices
, Supreme Court: India: Sitting judges
, and, on the history of the collegium debate, Judicial appointments, senior: India
Every day Indpaedia’s volunteers browse selected Indian newspapers and magazines to spot articles and statistical graphs about ALL things Indian that are Fit to Archive.
We add or update around fifteen contemporary articles a day, normally within a month of their publication.
Another Indpaedia team has been uploading articles about the cities, towns and villages, and castes, tribes and communities of the Indian sub-continent, mainly sourced from libraries of the British ‘Raj’ (roughly covering the period 1890- 1930)
Indpaedia’s own library has another 75,000 newspaper clippings from the period 1993-2013, waiting to be optically scanned and then uploaded, when resources permit.
You can update existing pages or suggest new ones by sending information and photographs as messages to the Facebook community, Indpaedia.com. All information used will be gratefully acknowledged in your name.
If you find anything posted on Indpaedia offensive or if your article or photograph has been used without your permission or without due acknowledgement, please report it to the same page.
About: Indpaedia is an unfunded, volunteer-run archive-cum-encyclopædia that hopes to contain information about every Indian (if possible, South Asian) topic of general interest.
Our country-wise links (above) are not working too well right now, but we already have a few hundred articles each about Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan. We have uploaded roughly 14,100 articles about India so far. You can find the information you want through the ‘Search’ box (top right) or through these country-wise indexes.
General knowledge for researchers—and for the civil services and other ‘competitive’ exams: Detailed, year-wise statistics are available on Indpaedia about almost every topic likely to be of use to those studying India (and, wherever possible, South Asia).
Indpaedia’s goal is to have a page about every sub-caste and tribe (we have covered around 5,850 Communities so far); every town, no matter how small (we have already uploaded over 5,250 articles about Places); every animal and plant; every higher secondary school and college; every aspect of our Economy-Industry-Resources; everyone connected with Cinema-TV-Pop, currently or in the past; indeed, every aspect of our sub-continent.
When resources permit, Indpaedia will enable readers to post new articles and updates directly, as on Wikipedia.
