7 Signs That You Are A True Malayali (Man)

A Malayali guy has to face a lot of stereotypes. We are supposed to have an ‘accent’ or to bathe in coconut oil every day or be able to climb a coconut tree. But not all stereotypes are negative. There are some that, I feel, we should wear like a badge of honour.

Here are a few.

You are capable of growing a thick ‘stache.

You’re either a Mammootty fan or a Mohanlal fan. Never both.

You know how to turn your mundu into ‘shorts’.

You have a good command over Malayalam.

You can quote dialogues from iconic Malayalam movies.

You either don’t drink at all or you drink like there’s no tomorrow!

You learned to ride a bike in your teens.


Well, are you a true Malayali?

I believe in challenging the status quo; I believe in thinking differently. I think differently because I try to absorb knowledge from anyone - regardless of the industry they’re working in.
