I am a Malayali

With no offence meant to my brethren from Kerala (some of my best friends belong to God's own country), presenting a clip I was forwarded a few days ago:

H Shaji said...

Gayathri Varma said...

Very hilarious!
It is understandable when you say some of your best friends are from Kerala, considering the stark similariites between Bengalis and Malayalis - political convictions, fiery idealism, strong intellectual/artisitc/philosophical leanings, to name a few.

Hi BG,
It definitely doesn't speak well for you to have community-specific digs in your blog. And wish your reader "Rgb" would remember that there are jokes targeted at his community too, whichever that is. And if one starts doing it, one can churn a whole lot of jokes and digs aimed at every community in India - mallu, tallu, madrasi, bong, sardari or whatever. Pathetic that the spirit of 'regionalism' is stronger in our country than 'nationalism.' High time we all started identifying ourselves as Indians and not Bengalis or Tamilians or Punjabis.

A concerned Indian citizen (not a Keralite in case you are wondering!)

Sorry Bishwanath for taking the liberty to reply to the above comment .

A community specific blog is necessarily not targeted in highlighting the inadequacies rather it’s the observations confessed in the calmness of a Blog site.

Yes, I am aware of the jokes targeted at my community as well. At times I sulk, at times I agree and at times I enjoy. Being a BONG, I am aware of what I have and what my culture and intelligentsia still have, so I am ready to take the zest targeted at my community.
From communist party and its Decadent Marxism, from insistence on education and high % of literacy to its amazing cuisine lined on a fishy trail, Bongs and Mallus have lots in common. So I feel what they feel. Incidentally what I posted before in my comment was forwarded to me by a good humored friend from God’s Own Country.

And what Nationalism are we talking about? That had always been a pedantic notion and still exists in truest forms in the text books and scholastic circle of political philosophy. Even in Nationalist movement of India it wasn’t the entire country that was affected and took active participation.
Speaking of modern times, Regionalism isn’t strong ONLY in India.
Speakers of South American language suffers from more stigma and regionalized dig than we can think of. A strive to code-switch and adopt a neutral sounding English to wipe away their regionalized accent and life style is a job of life time for many.
There is a distinct dislike targeted at each other between people of Northern and Southern parts of France. And in Queen’s land where sun never sets, put a charming Irish in front a English and allow them to chat and see the regionalism flourish and sarcasm in its fullest bloom.

There are two ways of dealing with an issue. You can turn around and walk away pretending that you never saw it (which is a typical attribute of most of us) or you face it…brazen, take it raw and deal with it rather than running away.

Only when you point out and dig, there stands a chance to Arise and awake and change. It is better to laugh at oneself rather than let others laugh at you. Self sarcasm will breed resurrection.


HIlarious:) I have so many mallu friends -- they will love this:)

I'm a "mallu" and contrary to the beliefs of the good-intentioned anonymous writer a few posts above, I don't think any malayali with a good sense of humor and strong sense of self would take offense at the clip...I think it was brilliant and it had me falling of my chair in laughter. Any idea who created it?

In real Malyali people are not like other south indians.their kudi's are so beautiful.I always felt Malyalis belongs to north india.

BTW,the song is funny,i cant get what they are saying in Malyalam.

Why the debate? Why waste words? You are right gayatri, Malayalis have political convictions, fiery idealism, strong intellectual leanings. What we dont have is the willingness to DO... If a malayali, or for that matter a bong, is caught between the devil and the deep blue sea, he will debate the pros and cons of jumping in or fighting the devil and do NOTHING... whereas a jat or a sikh wouldn't.... *&^( the northies, the pandis, the bongs and the chinkies... if you have a grouse kary... be ready to kill them. dont talk... just kill them. they are just normal people, just like us. they wouldnt hesitate to do the same to us. so eliminate them. its not a good thing to do...but the only way out of the mallu non-mallu debate

Boomboy said...

What happened to Shilpa shetty in the reality show? she is a northie and a non mallu..Jade goody killed indian english accent as a whole..y only mallus? go outside india and see how indians are hated by others..Kuwaitis spit on indian's faces..regardless mallu or non mallu...all u guys suck hard! Of course Dr. Chacko suckzzz
