::::::Generally on WP captions are too short, often much too short and uninformative. The ones here are on the long side, but probably it is the contrast with the usual over-short ones that makes them stand out. They are certainly informative. I notice that this image and the tea plantation one above use the "multiple image" template (generally, a curse of Indian articles) but are only a single image. Would anyone object if Bazza put normal format and de-centred the caption text on such cases? Certainly not me. The length of the caption text I think needs more consensus.

:::::::Perhaps that image should be in the health section but the caption looks ok to me. It links the image (immunizations) with the eradication of polio (presumably due to immunization). I scrolled down a bit and saw the St. Thomas church picture with the, imo pertinent, addition about the first arrival of Christians in India and that makes sense too. I like brevity in general but we don't want to toss the baby out. Of course, the immunization caption could convey the same information with greater brevity - e.g., ''Immunization workers in 2006. In 2009, the World Health Organization declared India to be polio-free.[316]'' - but the prosaic element is lost. We do want our prose to be engaging, even in image captions. --[[User:RegentsPark|RegentsPark]] <small>([[User talk:RegentsPark|comment]])</small> 19:04, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
{{od}}I have not written the following sections or subsections: 5, 6, 7, 7.1, 7.2 (?), 8 (?), 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.6. Of these, 9.1 and 9.2 are the most easily rewritten, especially with the expert knowledge of {{u|Johnbod}} I would greatly welcome that if he has the time.
