Talk:Three day traders' strike in New Delhi

some fact-checkingEdit

the one source i checked[1] did not say the monitoring committee "said the supreme court is replanning" anything, instead, it says that the monitoring committee has recommended that sealing not be resumed. there's no word on whether the court accepts the recommendation, as the wikinews article suggests. is this borne out by other sources, or shld we reword the article?  — Doldrums(talk) 10:20, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

The word could be rephrased, I took this news from [[2] which states that monitoring committe reports that sealing should not restart from november 1. Shyam (T/C) 10:33, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
that source says monitoring committee told the court, i.e. recommended, that sealing should not be restarted. that does not necessarily mean the court will agree to the recommendation (i.e. i don't think the committe recommendations are binding on the court) . so let us just report what we know - "committee recommends", rather than what we don't - "court is planning".  — Doldrums(talk) 10:54, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

The word 'traders'Edit

I think the use of the word 'trader' is confusing here. I know that is what all the sources are using. But isn't 'merchant' the word we should be using here? I think that both UK and US English would favor 'merchant', and if they use 'trader' in India, I am not sure that we should. Please see Wikipedia's disambiguation page Trader. --SVTCobra 23:20, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

The strike name is called trader's strike. It could be little confusing, but if we replace by some other phrase, like merchant's, it would be more confusing for those who knows little about this knowledge. Shyam (T/C) 06:22, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

The centreEdit

Not quite sure what the 'centre' is, or why it'd be filing a petition. I think that should be better explained, and so I'm nominating this one for further editing. Arkeides 23:36, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
