We were visiting Kerala once when my cousin sister was
getting married there. A day after the wedding the newly-wed couple had thrown
a houseboat party. I am always fascinated with the Malayalam food, their
culture and their simplicity. The ladies wear these beautiful white and gold
cotton sarees which are so typical of the place! I had bought one with pink
embroidery. I wanted to dress up like a Malayali woman for the houseboat party.
Gold chain, gold bangles, long hair and white and gold saree –
the perfect attire of a Malayali woman. It surprised quite a few people in the
family but the funniest part was when the local people we met on the way to
houseboat started speaking to me in Malayalam. May be they thought I am one of
I didn’t complain though!
P.S. I was really thinking hard what can I write for today. Then Facebook showed this memory from 4 years back! It saved my day!
