Encourage people to create article
Red heart with heartbeat logo.svg
I have seen many notable people especially in India but they do not have much references published. May be they are aloof for self publicity or they do not really bother about the same. From a Wikipedia encyclopedia., the articles must be there for such people. Suggest admins to bit relax on such articles rather than just deleting it. Have seen sysop banning editors for such act and discourage people for doing so.
