Stump Vs Bails

… this is how i used to remember the difference between an Iyer and an Iyengar in the Brahmin community in Tamil Nadu. The one who wears his holy ash like three bails across his forehead was an Iyer to me and someone who wears the holy symbol vertical in his forehead like a cricket Stump was an Iyengar to me. Easy no?
