Is it okay to call Krishna Menon a Bengali politician just because he contested an election from West Bengal? In this context, imagine adding the categories Andhra Pradesh politicians and Karnataka politicians in Indira Gandhi. Salih(talk) 16:30, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
Hello Salih. Well, there was earlier a category in VKKM article saying he was a Maharashtra politician (I did not add that, it was someone else). So I added the category Bengali politician, and the more specific category Mumbai politician (removing the Maharashtra category). Both are there for the same kind of reason. I am not very keen on those categories, but either both must be removed, or both must stay. You can decide as you wish. I know that VKKM was particularly proud of his contesting from outside his home state, as a mark of his non-attachment to regional sentiments (and he was critical of Nehru contesting only from Allahabad, his home turf); VKKM finally contested his last election from Trivandrum when all options had run out (but again, he was reluctant to do so from Calicut). So perhaps he himself would have been happy to be included in those categories (not that this is very decisive, but just a remark). I don't know how Indira Gandhi viewed contesting outside Allahabad, but perhaps not so ascetically as VKKM. If Indira Gandhi is not included in those categories, and a regional tag on a politician is conferred by birth, yes, both those should be removed. Karnan (talk) 22:45, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the well thought out reply. I agree with you that we should either remove both category or keep them. So let's post this discussion on VKKM's talk page and see what others think. Salih(talk) 04:12, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

A library index has a reference to "Lall, Shusheila, wife of Indian diplomat Krishna Menon in New York"
I have also seen a private document referring to "Arthur & Shusheila Lall" (Krishna Menon was mentor to Arthur), but as Arthur's wife was called Betty, I wonder if Shusheila might have been e.g. a sister or aunt to Arthur, who married Menon 'inconspicuously' (as I can find no other references to his being married). --Ozaru (talk) 15:00, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
OK, ignore the above: the Albany librarians have confirmed it was an error in their archives. Ozaru (talk) 19:30, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
