Often wondered why they spelt 'Warrier' like that:-

Warrier (Warrier/Varier/Variyar) is a South Indian, Hindu caste of the Ambalavasi (temple-personnel) community from Kerala, India. They are engaged to assist the Namboodiri priests in temple-related chores, primarily catering to the floral requirements and daily maintenance of the temple. Variars form an intermediate between Dwija and Sudra and are categorized as antarala jati.[1] They are considered higher than the royal family castewise and are second-highest in caste-rankings.

Variars were well known to be the Sanskrit scholars and hence they had the responsibility of teaching Sanskrit in Royal families/ Ruling families(Varma - The Malayalee Rajas)

Variars are vegetarians and shun meat, eggs, fish as well as spicy/pungent foods such as onions and garlic.

Ahhhh The Secret and Holy Hebburn Sherry Well's as discovered by the Venerable Bede.

Its the North's answer to the water shortages down South.

The last time they were threatened was when the IRA tried to blow up the Bridge over the River Don, which carries the pipeline linking the Monastry with Hebburn and that famous out post of the East, South Shields.

I think the simple answer is that they can't spell WARRIOR.
