I was just going to make a request for this article, so thanks for writing it, I didn't know enough and couldn't find enough to create one. This term came up fairly prominently in Bandit Queen where the "bad guys" were higher caste Thakurs. We should also mention it is commonly taken as an appelation. Search Wikipedia for Thakur and you'll see several instances come up. Also Tagore is the Bengali equivalent/spelling as given in Platts.[1] That also gives the spelling as ठाकुर which transliterates as ṭhākur or Thākur instead of Thakore, so perhaps wee should move it to that. Platts is public domain so we can use anything from that. That's the only source I could find though. I could never get the spelling right before to find it. - Taxman Talk 18:29, 26 January 2006 (UTC)

ThakoreThakur — Most appropriate and commonly used term. Just did a google search and found 2.29 million hits against 0.1 million for Thakore. Even in the article itself, the term is spelled "Thakur". Thakore is very rarely used and I haven't find any one addressed as such so far. —Axxn (talk) 01:59, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Agree per nom. Airplaneman talk 02:21, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Seems reasonable. Taxman's post suggests this is a nineteenth-century spelling, like Hindoo. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 14:52, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
