People’s ignorance makes me furious. Stupidity is ok with me; infact, its cute most often than not. What annoys me is that they speak without having a clue. Imbecilic fools – I find them everywhere I turn. Anyway, what would I call myself? I still seem to waste myself chatting in IRc rooms and then the things that people dump in there troubles me. I can’t ask for more from them, can I? I’ve always been in wrong company but IRc somehow, always seemed to be a place that made me happy and thats the reason I still go there.
So, the conversation I had with one of my fellow chatters was about mallu’s. It ran something like this:
•02:23:58• (Anup) I’m am mallu re…
•02:24:12• (@X-Chatter) what Anup u r really a mallu??
•02:24:21• (Anup) X-Chatter: haan…

•02:24:40• (Anup) X-Chatter: kyu? err…
•02:24:55• (@X-Chatter) mallus are the most selfish ppl i have ever met

•02:25:58• (Anup) X-Chatter: you probably did not meet the right kind of mallus.
•02:26:00• (Anup) And selfish?
•02:26:02• (@X-Chatter) still u will be a mallu…..
•02:26:10• (@X-Chatter) ya may ne u r right Anup
•02:26:10• (Anup) Thats too harsh a comment to a very huge population.
•02:26:16• (Anup) Generalizing is never good anyway 🙂
•02:26:33• (@X-Chatter) i have had such experiences… so my mind is set that way..
•02:26:44• (@X-Chatter) lets see if u change my thinking or i m proved to be correct
•02:26:51• (Anup) lol… its perfectly ok.
•02:26:59• (Anup) Are nahi yaar… why do I need to change your mindset?
•02:27:17• (@Y-Chatter) I hate mallus for making really bad quality pr0n
•02:27:33• (@X-Chatter) y coz i said that i hate mallus??
•02:27:50• (Anup) X-Chatter: yeah, maybe… cause people who hate mallu’s they hate them so bad that they keep off.
•02:28:01• (Anup) But I’m ok with me being a mallu. I love the language and I’m a mallu to the core.
•02:28:03• (@Y-Chatter) shakeela & those women with thunder thighs…… arghhhhhhhhh
•02:28:06• (@X-Chatter) no Anup i m not that bad…
•02:28:27• (@X-Chatter) thats what i said mallus are typical mallus.. kuch bhi kar le

•02:28:31• (@Y-Chatter) why do mallus not kiss while making out??
•02:28:59• (@Y-Chatter) they are busy holding their lungis between their teeth
•02:30:26• (@X-Chatter) but i hate them for their selfish mentality…
•02:31:02• (@X-Chatter) coz all the mallus i have met are the same
•02:31:11• (@X-Chatter) in my office 80% are mallus..
•02:31:35• (@X-Chatter) they will just make their ppl up .. and other ppl inspite of sloggin are left like that
•02:31:57• (@Y-Chatter) the usual mentality… I have noticed it too
•02:31:59• (Anup) X-Chatter… its PERSON specific… not language specific.
•02:32:00• (+Dorabjee) yea dats correct n i agree wit X-Chatter.. dey carry deir public evrywher.

•02:32:59• (@X-Chatter) yes it does…
•02:33:57• (Anup) lol.. seriously, but I still love the language and the people.
•02:34:04• (Anup) But then, its always been the problem of people…
•02:34:08• (Anup) They can’t take the success of others.
•02:34:16• (Anup) Mallu’s adapt and they live anywhere and everywhere.
•02:34:20• (Anup) We just flourish.
•02:34:58• (@X-Chatter) ya u flourish pushing someone behind….
•02:35:06• (@X-Chatter) some person who deserved to be there
•02:35:08• (Anup) X-Chatter: well, everything is fair in love and war girly.
•02:35:16• (Anup) And life these days, is a war.
•02:35:20• (Anup) A war to success.
•02:35:33• (@X-Chatter) i dont agreee
•02:35:40• (Anup) Yup, you’re only human.
•02:35:44• (Anup) And I’m not asking you to agree either.
•02:35:45• (@X-Chatter) if u have that capability.. .to apne dam pe aao na aage…
•02:35:55• (@X-Chatter) chaat chaat ke kyu aate ho
•02:35:57• (Anup) Selfishness is a person to person trait.
•02:36:02• (@X-Chatter) majority of them are this way
•02:36:47• (@X-Chatter) coz jitne bhi mallu mere palle pade hai sab aise hi hai…

•02:38:45• (Anup) I’m totally happy 🙂
•02:38:48• (@X-Chatter) and i m happy with my views…
•02:38:54• (Anup) Are X-Chatter ji… I’m not asking you to change your views.
I’m sorry for getting this in here, but then I’d like to ask; how do you generalize like this? You met a couple of bad people and that gives you the license to talk eblish crap about an entire community. I’d like to condemn a lot of sections of my society if that were the case. Its simple things like these which make you stand out in a crowd. Its about how your heart, mind and most importantly your brain communicate with each other. What you speak should be a potent combination of all three, I feel. But then, these days, people take pride in being mean, rude and insensitive. The better they get at this the better they feel about themselves. And then, they’d call themselves “straightforward” stupid word, but I guess it does the trick.
Coming back to what I wanted to say, I feel awesome being a mallu. I’ve been a Maharashtrian all my life, I’d say. I’ve lived in Pune, Maharashtra for 24 years, thus the values I have is a mix of both Mallu and Marathi cultures. I love both the languages and I feel very happy when I speak in either one of them. I feel more comfortable speaking English or Hindi though and thats ok. These are the most used languages in India and I had to be better at these since I use them both in my everyday life. Some goods things I’ve got to say about myself. No self flattery, but, I’m not selfish. I’d do whatever I can to see my loved ones smile. I’ve never done anything inappropriate to be promoted at work, figuratively; I’ve done nothing wrong for professional success. And I’m an overall nice guy. Minus the looks of course. Good looks, you know? So, I’m proud of being a mallu and no, you don’t need to deal with it, so yeah, buzz off.

Mosquitoes and Mallus can be found anywhere and everywhere, with their typical style…..
Being hard working and intelligent people they multiply fast…
Some how they know how to get the work done. they are exuberant , jovial ,good conversationalist.
Mallus do have a great sense of humour going by the number of comedy movies in malayalam :)ha ha ha 🙂
so dont get jealous dude…..;)
evn m proud to be a mallu……:)
Mallus are very cunning, selfish, self centered and back stabbers. they can betray even their best friend.they are stingy, calculative and criticize other people a lot. both mallu girls and guys are extremely flirtatious.the christian girls esplly are whores and the guys drunkards and male who’s…. most of the mallu girls and guys would have slept with multiple partners before they are married and in the best case atleast one.
non mallus please stay away from mallus and never trust a mallu.
I assume that’s what your parents named you? I guess you did not attend classes at school when your teacher took dictation tests. That’s the poorest display of spellings I’ve seen in a while.
Anyway, I’ll leave that comment here since I respect what you feel. Being hurt by someone tends to make a mark and I’m pretty sure that some mallu gave you the boot. Once again, its alright that you generalise and its alright that you hate Mallu’s but commenting like this on some random guys personal blog isn’t something wise people such as yourself should do.
Thanks for your input 🙂
Well said Anup.
All this hulla about mallus stinking and disgusting backbiters is not wrong,but this applies to all the indians and we should not categorise only mallus..I grew up with mallus and some of them can be good,but at the end of the day its like having a snake as your pet ,if you are lucky u dont get bit.
I read lot of blogs and forums where mallus have said that the whole country is jealous of there success..Its good they are successful but if you look at history they are very accomodating and flexible,they changed religions ,learn languages(read arabic) and survived communism in kerala.You are dead right they are througout the the world because there is nothing to do in gods own country other that peeling cocunuts or making porn movies.
I think I am sounding a bit biased now..
What I am trying to convey is ,just ask any mallu this question,
” How many true friends u have who are non mallu?”
The answer inadvertentely will be “ZERO”
No hard feelings,I love the Mallu Babes….
@Anubhav – You’ve confused me. Yes, I’m one of those dumb mallus. So your point is? 😮
I’ve had a weird relationship with Mallus all my life – that I cannot categorize them as good or bad.
I think its really a question of culture, upbringing and background rather than anything else.
I’m an employer, and overall I see a huge problem managing Mallu employees, since they don’t get along extremely well with people from other States and tend to form their own groups.
They are great guys, if you get to know them – but, they get easily influenced especially by their women, who tend to be a little more political than the men.
One of my best friends is Mallu, and one fine day he decides to backstab me for small money – but, I really have nothing against that, nature favors the fittest, strongest and most cunning species.
Overall, I’ve seen Mallus who’ve been brought up in Kerala to be different than the ones who’ve been brought up elsewhere, but the Malayalam language acts as a strong link.
Mallu Unions are common at work – mind you, i’m not a pissed off team member or employee, i’m an employer who’s seen mallu behavior.
Mallus could go a long way if they shed small politics, and were a lot more straightforward; but then again – their straight could be their manipulative skills.
One thing I appreciate Anup for though – I rarely see Mallus being proud of themselves, a lot of Mallus hate other Mallus – and, tend to confess so.
Hopefully Mallus will change or the world will change for the better.
Dear Not Anonymous,
Thanks for your input and thanks for reading.
Oh wow Nupie! I can’t believe u still chat there!! :)) N about the post.. I find it funny how people tend to blame everything on others. I mean.. if they had the chance.. won’t they too group with people who spoke their language?? If I come across a hindi speaking person here..thats probably the best thing for the day :)) I don’t see why people have to complain about how mallus group up n stuff.. unless ofcourse they’re bitching about that specific someone :-” And who isn’t selfish?? reallyy??
Your post was a fun read! :)) Especially the part with the guy complaining about porn :)) LOL
You still on that IRc? Ahhh ~!!!
Anyways, I’m not a mallu but yes, I do have some good friends who are mallu. I don’t think it goes anything of being a mallu or something else.
@Shags and Prab: I used to chat there when I wrote this post. Not anymore. I only visit these days.
By the way, Shags… thanks for reading 🙂
Are you serious? how the hell would you know? Im mallu. i currently live in a mixed society. And are you suggesting mallus cant get along with anyone else??? Coz i can assure you i have friends from all over the world. Mostly other indians( not necessarily mallu).!!!!!!!!
hii anup, earlier evn i used 2 think dat mallus r selfish pple bcoz of sum of da bad experiences i had.
but after dat i met one mallu guy online nd v started loving each other. i shared dis wid him. but den he told me dat mallus r nice pple nd dat i cant blame all of dem on da basis of just 1-2 experiences i had.
den i happnd to visit kerala dis month dats november 2010. nd i found dem kind hearted and soft spoken. i really liked dem nd da way de hav maintained dere culture.
so i just wanted to say dat on da basis of just few incidents v cant blame the whole community.
and 1 more thing. pple all over india blame biharis but all my frnds r biharis nd de all r nice.
so its da same for mallus
Thanks for your input. Falling in love… online – Cheers. Welcome to the club.
Good and Bad people can be anywhere from any region or from any country. It depends on you that how you are going to handle the diversity of India for example sea food can be stinky for someone and tasty for others. We should respect each other’s culture. Whenever I meet a Malyali, I feel l like Malyali. Whenever I meet a Marathi I feel like Marathi and this list goes on for every Indian….
(BTW I am sorry, I might be an alien on this blog but I am from “Great India”)
I wouldn’t say that all mallus r bad & that I hate them. But, one thing is definitely right…..most of them are sly, scheming, and cunning. I have experiences with mallus where I saw them stoop so low that is beyond my imagination. They are hypocrites and just pretending to be traditional doesn’t make them nice people. They can get nasty & dirty.
Thanks for your feedback guys.
