Use of Caste in biographies and lists- does it require the individual's self-declaration?[edit]

Hi, request those who are watching this page to contribute to the discussion at Wikipedia_talk:Noticeboard_for_India-related_topics#Caste_identification on whether mentioning a person's caste (Jati) requires that person to explicitly say that he belongs to XX caste (like in the case of religion and sexuality), or whether caste identity is objective and knowable enough (like ethnic background) to be ascertained without producing proof that the person explicitly identified with a particular caste. For example, can we identify Mulayam_Singh_Yadav as a Yadav based on newspaper articles etc., or whether we need proof that Mulayam Singh Yadav has explicitly accepted 'Yadav' as his caste (by saying, for example, something like "I am a Yadav".)

Suchitra Krishnamurthy[edit]

Suchitra Krishnamurthy is a Telugu Brahmin, not an Iyer, so removed her from the list Adarshkrish (talk) 04:19, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

List almost completed[edit]

This list is almost completed. There are around four or five individuals (Poornima Jayaram, Nalini (actress), Rekha (Tamil actress), Yuhi Sethu), whom I've not added to the list as I'm not sure of their origins. Else, this list is almost complete.-The EnforcerOffice of the secret service 03:10, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Errors in the list[edit]

Saint Thyagaraja ,Shyama Sastri and SP Balasubrahmanyam are 100% Telugu Brahmins.They are not Iyers as listed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.57.79.155 (talk) 03:08, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

List leading to caste bias[edit]

what does this list serve purpose in a encyclopedia ? , being an iyer does not have anything to do with achievments or field of work. the only thing it is trying to connect is religious belief with people's achievment!!! I believe the article should be deleted Shrikanthv (talk) 06:43, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
