Dear Ajai Shuklaji,
Thanks a lot for putting up the pictures of the Arjun tank, IJT, ALH, LCA, and the Ships - they are all extremely beautiful and informative. I am an editor Wikipedia, which is currently the 8th most-visited English-language website in the world. There are over 2 million articles on English Wikipedia, and over 6 million registered editors. You can view my Wikipedia user page at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Sniperz11.
I hope you might be willing to license this image for use on Wikipedia to be used to illustrate the article. As before, attribution will be given to you and linked to your blog.
I was wondering if I could I use some of the pictures that you've taken of the ships, LCA, ALH and the Arjun on the respective Wikipedia pages? Namely: Arjun MBT, Project 15A, Project 17 Shivalik Class, HAL Tejas, HAL Dhruv, and the associated pages for the individual ships, and any other pages where these pictures might be useful. As of now, there are very few good pictures of the Future ships of the Indian Navy, as well as large size images of the Arjun tank. Your images will really go a long way in improving on that.
The Images which I'd like to use are located at:
1. IJT - Checking out the Intermediate Jet Trainer (IJT) at HAL, Bangalore - Image source
2. Arjun MBT - Battle-lines drawn on the Arjun tank: Armed Forces prefer Russian armour - Image 1 - Image 2
3. Tejas -
a) Tejas LCA to get high-tech AESA radar - Image source
b) Trainer - Tejas Light Combat Aircraft: two-seater trainer photo - Image source
c) Airframe Test - HAL Bangalore: Main Airframe Static Test on Tejas - Image source
4. Hawk Production line - HAL looks beyond offsets to grow - Image source
5. Dhruv - HAL, not DRDO, will lead design of new aircraft - Image Source
6. Project 15A - The third Project 15-A Kolkata class destroyer (as yet unnamed) under construction at Mazagon Docks Ltd, Mumbai - Image 1 - Image 2 - Image 3
7. Project 17 -
a) Word-class warships; Indian prices - INS Shivalik - INS Satpura
b) INS Sahyadri - INS Sahyadri, the third Project 17 stealth frigate, being fitted out at Mazagon Docks Ltd, Mumbai - Image 1 - Image 2 - Image 3
I hope you might be willing to license these images for use on Wikipedia to be used to illustrate the article. As always, these photographs will be credited to you, and the source will be mentioned, along with a link back to your site and the page these images were originally taken from.
Also, it would be great if you could give a bit of information about the image context, in case this is missing in the posts, since it will be extremely useful in added to the image description.
