Created by RAJIVVASUDEV (talk). Self-nominated at 03:32, 10 May 2023 (UTC). Post-promotion hook changes for this nom will be logged at Template talk:Did you know nominations/Farsh-i-chandani; consider watching this nomination, if it is successful, until the hook appears on the Main Page.Reply[reply]

General: Article is new enough and long enough

Policy compliance:

Hook eligibility:

  • Cited:  N - n
  • Interesting:  Y
  • Other problems:  N - The hook and the alt were pretty much identical, so I have removed the ALT; I also edited the main hook for better grammar. However, the hook states that the Farsh-i-chandani was designed by Nur Jahan, whereas the cited book merely states that "she is credited with popularising [it] in the Mughal harem".

Image eligibility:

QPQ: Done.

Overall:   The alt could be altered to something like "popularised" instead of "designed", and the image could be removed/made clearer, but bigger problems exist with the scope of the article. I am half tempted to place a merge proposal to Nur Jahan#Patron of the arts and architecture at WP:AFD ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 16:35, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@User:AirshipJungleman29 Nur Jahan made noteworthy contributions across multiple domains, including textiles and architecture. For her father Mirz Ghiys Beg, Nur Jahan, the wife of Jahangir, commissioned the mausoleum i.e Tomb of I'timād-ud-Daulah. The field of textiles is expansive, encompassing a diverse array of materials and applications. Within this realm, she was involved in designing dresses and modifying various fabrics. The category of carpets encompasses a diverse range of rugs and floor coverings. One of Nur Jahan's notable contributions was in the design of the Farsh I Chandani, a distinctive floor covering that has garnered attention for its unique features and merits a dedicated article.
I have proposed that the articles be merged at Talk:Nur Jahan#Merge proposal. As I am now WP:INVOLVED, I will wait to see how the merge proposal turns out, and then I will request another reviewer, RAJIVVASUDEV. ~~ AirshipJungleman29 (talk) 13:54, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
