I can't wait to work in Delhi and Uttarakhand later this year, but I know last time I visited UP, I saw many people who easily would pass in the south/middle india. Granted there were obviously groups of people who looked quite NW shifted, but they were by no means the majority and probably were composed of muslims, brahmins, jatts, and aroras/khatris.
    Upper castes are roughly 25%, some OBC's are also very mixed (jats, gujjars). Out of the upper castes we have the Baniyas who look like South Indian mid to lower castes. Maybe 30-40% of people total will have NW/ N/ Central Asian shift, the rest don't look exotic by Indian standards.

    I remember when you described explaining this to some one and they thought it was akin to using a swear word LOL.

    30-40% even seems high to me. Maybe in western UP, where I haven't visited extensively.

    This is what the Baniyas look like.

    What do you mean by "mixed" for Jat and gujjars? And which upper castes are placed in exotic category as per your observation/opinion?

    Mixed meaning mixed with Central Asian like people. Other exotic types can be Brahmins/ Rajputs/ West Punjabis/ Sindhis (in Western UP).

    I have seen few exotic yadavas, probably they are high Iran_n. I don't have seen any Gujjar sample from West up/Haryana. Not sure if they will score high iran_n similar to their counterparts in Punjab and rajasthan

    Here is a picture from a family wedding 15 years ago. I am top right. Mostly my cousins in the pictures. prashantvaidwan phenotypes average out over populations, I don't want to guess.

    Ok..np..and it will fall out many times even for the experts.. phenotype is a perplexed phenomenon and even to average out a question will hang around if one has seen enough from the group..

    Please be mindful, asking people to guess or classify is not allowed on the forum. You can tell people what they are and they can give your their opinion on what they thought they were, but do not post a picture and say, "guess".
