article photographs fiddled again?[edit]

So after I was away for a while and now that I got back I see that the good homely pics of the ancestral home and group of the community members removed and Replaced yet again with a pic of a naked girl?

What rubbish is this? Where is the pic that we all agreed to last year? Why was it removed?

Which picture is that, then? - Sitush (talk) 08:44, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

better picture replaced?[edit]

There was a better picture of nair women that was used earlier from the same.source also @ http://digitallibrary.usc.edu/cdm/singleitem/collection/p15799coll123/id/5403/rec/3.

Any specific reason that was replaced by this little girl without a top?

Any pedo bears?

It might help if you at least skim through the pictures that are used before casting aspersions. The picture that you link which shows the women eating is already in the article. The other picture to which you refer has also been in the article for years, although I think someone recently replaced it with a tweaked version of the same thing. There has been post discussion about it and the consensus was that the thing should stay. - Sitush (talk) 08:42, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

That picture was replaced by the meal one. And there are other better pictures of ancestral home and women taking part in singing and so which are better deserving than some naked picture of a little girl. And I am 100% sure this naked pic has been added recently. Are you willing to lie about this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 103.41.32.65 (talk) 16:34, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

I agree. There are better pics!!!! Why is this picture used?

image in nair article http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/cb/Nair_women_Malabar.jpg[edit]

We have a better picture with traditional dress to depict nair women. This pic is already in Wikipedia and can be reused.

Please replace the naked little girl's pic with this. I don't see any reason u need that specific image only.

I wouldn't put a lot of stock in the words of someone who was blocked for impersonation. And she's not naked. ekips39 (talk) 22:19, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Hi All,

We can still argue why the suggested picture which seems to be better cannot replace the other quite disturbing picture which does not depict any traditional dressing of the nair women.

I also vote for the picture suggested in the link above and am of the opinion that the pic used in the article looks inappropriate. Lets have a small discussion on this if you people have time.

Suggestion for caste disputes[edit]

Hi Everybody,

The caste systems in India have been jumbled up and all that results is a lot of chaos. The reason for this being that 'Nair' is more of a title which includes the ruling royalties, land lords, merchants as well as low class servants, barbers and more so. I totally agree with stating it as a unitary group of diff castes but also suggest that we take the focus off the caste system and focus more on their lifestyle, traditions and other attributes like kalaripayattu(big deal), thaiyyam (ritual involving spawning of ancestors - pretty typical to nayar's), their housing system(tharavadu), matriarchial system, the differences between Nayar's in diff areas of Kerala.

Most of these are covered here but I think the lead can be improved tremendously and all the ambiguities could be removed.

OOB opinion : Nair's also belong to the Kayastha community which are hindu communities indigenous to India and dont fall appropriately in the varna system.
