No, because the distinguishing feature of this cat is not that we have manuscripts -- we don't have manuscripts for all members. Membership is defined by whether they have been published. The [[Sw Swarajyanand Samarth|Deriya]] letters are published in [[Sw Ageh Bharti|Ageh's]] book ''[[Beloved Osho]]'', the [[Lala Sundarlal Jain|Sundarlal]] letters are published in [[Yukrand (युक्रांद, Indian magazine)|Yukrand]] and the [[Ma Yoga Geeta|Nandini]] letter is published in ''[[Antarveena (अंतर्वीणा)]]''.

wouldn't "Manuscript Letters" be a better name for this cat? --Rudra 10:02, 10 October 2019 (UTC)


No, because the distinguishing feature of this cat is not that we have manuscripts -- we don't have manuscripts for all members. Membership is defined by whether they have been published. The Deriya letters are published in Ageh's book Beloved Osho, the Sundarlal letters are published in Yukrand and the Nandini letter is published in Antarveena (अंतर्वीणा).

There are no manuscripts for the Sundarlal letters. We could arguably make other (sub-)categories for whether they have manuscripts, or whether their publication is in an official Osho book, etc, but publication is the criterion for this cat so far. Name could be changed to Individual Published Letters letters if you like.

Eventually, every letter that has ever been published could end up here. So far, the rationale is that we have pages for these letters, because we have either their image or text as a result of input, and the pages otherwise have no category. Category:Unpublished Hindi (hi:अप्रकाशित हिंदी) was a handy cat for unpublished letters. We needed one for published, so this is it. -- doofus-9 17:47, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
