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?
