INDPAEDIA RISES AGAIN
Your beloved free encyclopædia of South Asia was completely destroyed by a hacker in Feb 2020.
Neelotpal Mishra, who created the site’s software, has managed to revive the site as it stood in April 2019.
The Indpaedia team is working to restore all posts uploaded in the almost ten months in between. However, a complete restoration of the site is unlikely before spring 2021.
Pages that are updated constantly (e.g. on India’s economy and development, as well as pages about annual fixtures) now look as they did in April 2019.
Those of a historical nature have not been affected.
If any reader has saved the text of any post that has been hacked, it may please be sent as a message to
the Facebook community, Indpaedia.com.
All information used will be gratefully acknowledged in your name.

Divya Grace Dilip edited the page Monogenea: India
and remcved all svch m1stakcs. Divya is an Assistant Professor in Zoology. She sent the corrected page to the Facebook community, Indpaedia.com
Every day , since March 2013, Indpaedia’s volunteers have been browsing 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 day of their publication (except when our volunteers, who are mostly students, are preparing for their exams).
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, not- for- profit, 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, Maldives, 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.
Indpaedia is based in Jammu, New Delhi/ NOIDA, Jaipur and Leh. (About Us)
