India topics

This is a list of India-related encyclopaedic entries contained in traditional published works. These include two major works, one from recent times (2005) by Stanley Wolpert and another from the nineteenth century by Edward Balfour (1885, 3rd edition). It would be useful to check the different Indian language Wikipedias to compare the status of articles against this topic list. It would also be useful to compare these to see how the outsider perspective differ from how (mostly) Indians work to construct an encylopaedia. Comparing and reconciling this list with Wikipedia articles may not be easy as there is often no one-to-one correspondence. Adding wikilinks next to these articles could be an interesting exercise to attempt.

Balfour's Cyclopaedia is in the public domain and this list of articles is not a substantial copy of Wolpert's work (and covered by fair use for review by Indian law). Balfour's work is a combination of dictionary, gazetteer and encylopaedia combined and therefore should be treated with a little more care in comparisons. They can be found online here volume 1 volume 2 volume 3
