    Yeah I don't see much overlap either, but some Malayalis still are suspect (maybe they have ancestry from Arab traders?). Like you said, Gulf Arabs have these distinct stereotypical features that laymen probably wouldn't notice (I used to not see them either), but to the trained eye, you can pick up on them. Such as deep set almond eyes, a low very fine brow ridge that sits just over the eyes, often a narrow hooked nose, a somewhat narrow head shape (South Asians in general are noticeably wider in comparison), and they have less adipose tissue in their face as well. There are people on both sides who buck the trend though.

    Edit: There are some Punjabis who look like this as well. I once mistook a Punjabi kid from I think it was Delhi here for a Saudi, because there are a bunch of foreign Saudi students here.

    Malayali muslims are known to have distinct Arab connections/culture even though many are simply converts, similar to muslims from the NW or Pakistan. A less-than-suave example of those with stereotypically gulf Arab features is a film comedian called Mamukoya. He has a narrow face and a bit of prognathism which sometimes distinguishes Muslims in our area, above all a distinct dialect/accent characteristic of mappila/malayali muslim communities.

    I think "light skin" is one of the most misleading, over-exoticized characteristics in south Asians. Skin color can be selected for in any kind of population. From what I have seen west-Asian/Indian mixes are usually dark skinned, for example Maz Jobrani's kids. wont post photos but you can get the picture by googling photos. hope I don't get chided for discussing this lol

    No one wear kurta pajama in our pinds. People in this picture are wearing standard shalwar kameez similar to Rahul. Pant shirt is also very rare.

    Pajame used to be more loose before, but with changing fashion they've become narrow. When working in fields Chadra is worn with Kurta, but when you're at home you wear kurta pajama.

    We say basti and gaon is used too, I never heard the word grayee before. Gaon I assume is Urdu and I always assumed it was pindh in Punjabi.
    Honestly though, in regular conversation we rarely use any of these terms, we just say the name of the village/farm/area. I don't know if that is common elsewhere or not, but all farms have given names and we refer to them as a proper noun.

    o sada grayee eh, mean that person is from same village as us. Just graan mean pind. There is likely no equivalent of grayee in "pind", apart from saying o sade pind de. Gaon when speaking urdu. Basti is hindi word for slums? Have heard a lot in bolly movies.

    I didn't know it was used in Hindi, but we don't have the negative connotation of "slum" with the word, it's just what we call a less populated area. I'm pretty sure in Kho "gram" means village or town too, which is close to "graan". Kakiasumi can correct me if I'm wrong.

    Also, if I was saying someone was from the same village as me, we'd just say "o sada ilaqah da hn".
