This is an example of how powerful wiki editting can be in complexity. What I have added below is the lead parapraph of the Wikipedia article on "Chitrapur Saraswat Brahman".

People new to Wiki, please dont get disheartened. Nobody is asking anyone to develop complex text like this. This is just to showcase the capabilities on Wikipedia.


Chitrapur Saraswats (Konkani: चित्रापुर सारस्वत) are a small Konkani-speaking community of Hindu Brahmins in India who ethnically trace their genealogy to the Kashmiri Pandits.According to another theory, their ancestors lived on the bank of the river Saraswati and hence the name "Saraswats" They call themselves Bhanaps (Konkani: भानप) in the Konkani language.[1] Although Kavle Math of Ponda or the Shri Gaudapadacharya Math predates it, and is known as the Adi Math of all Saraswats, the Chitrapur Math, located in the village of Shirali, in Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka is the primary autonomous religious institution of the Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmin community. With its line of Gurus (or Guru Parampara), the Chitrapur Math is a vital link that holds together the widely scattered units of the community. The community members are adherents of Smartha sect and the Advaita Vedanta philosophy of Adi Sankara. The Chitrapur Math is traditionally affiliated to the Sringeri Sharada Peetham. Lord Shiva in the form of Bhavanishankar is the patron deity of the Chitrapur Math. The present pontiff of the Chitrapur Math is His Holiness Sadyojat Shankarashram Swami III.
