Results

Less than 60- You are to Mallus what George bush is to rock music! Though it is good not be mallufied, try not to be racist (especially if u live in a place where mallus are in a majority)
61 to 90 – You have a good balance between your normal side and Mallu side. However this puts you in the gray area and therefore you are condemned to hell. So live your life to the fullest NOW.
91 to 120- you’re not a hardcore Mallu yet, there’s still hope for you, though you’re leaning on the white side there’s still a bit of black on you so technically are gray too! Hence you are on the damned side as well!! The choice is yours! Be a white Mallu (there’s no such thing all mallus are black) or be happy and g(r)ay.
More that 120- Welcome to the MVM club i.e. The Mallu Velya Makri Club. There’s no escaping it. You’re a Mallu through and through and have most probably gotten a score of 150. The good news is you aren’t in the gray but I guess that’s the silver lining to your gray, I mean black cloud. You win a candle light date at Sheikh Al Wahab Fruit Salad Menon’s Cafe in Yemen with Liju/Achu, where u will be a served a meal that consists of Sambhar (with potatoes of course) rice, fried bananas, jack fruits and coconut water for drinks! Goongraajulazens! Tenju berry muj for taking this survey.

But still, no clear definition of Mallu.

soniya

lol matet...did we really give u any kind of torture when we have used the word MALLU??

relax buddy...MALLUS are the short form of the people who stays in KERALA - SOUTHERN PART OF INDIA..The people who stays in kerala are known as MALYALEES and thus short form is MALLU..(no offence to others..i hope i m right with my information)

anonymous

Thanks for the information soniya. I tried to google the meaning of Mallu, but nothing come near to your answer.

Visper

I asked the same question few days back.. Good thing u asked that question Matet cause i already forgot what Soniya, Rizks and other Qlers told me.. :P

soniya

hey visper, do u have short memory?? lol..(don't mind plz)

Visper

I think i have soniya, :D
It confuse me sometimes..

soniya

my sense, it seems INDIAN day today..lots of thread on PUNJABIS, GUJRATIS, HYDERABADIS, TAMILIANS, MUMBAYITES and few more..

anonymous

Yeah Soniya..it's INDIAN day...hehehe okay guys till tomorrow...Good nyt everyone...!

>> Be safe! God bless

soniya

hanhan, will u plzz stop flooding QL with ur useless posts???

gkramer

It can be perceived as racist using phrases like "All Mallus are black" and some other stuff you mentioned there.

Good I am not a mallu ;o)

gkramer

soniya no bashing involved here.
I have seen differentiation on the base of color from close quarters, it should be nipped in the bud else it takes a very ugly turn. Obviously in Qatar they allow it to blossom so why not here too :o)

soniya

gotcha, i am a north indian but i wasn't knowing this...

soniya

gkramer, ok...But one should play safely when a thread is on particular community/religion..

gkramer

soniya playing safe to encourage such threads??
Are you kidding me.
Webster's calls it a racist word, all sorts of color references in the post and you want me to play safely??
LOL, I aint gonna beat around the bush, I am gonna call it the way I see it, racist thread.

soniya

gkrammer, i didn't mean this way..For me, any thread based on a community/religion shouldn't be turned into an abusive one...Coz it is related with the sentiments of others..chill now..

soniya

gotcha, neither rural nor urban area...

yv2r

from South india,they are every where,dashing,business mind can survive with any nationality.

Only one aspect many Indians don't like with them is,when ever any one ask any malayalee where are you from ? majority of malayalees say from Kerala where as other Indians say from india,some expats think kerala is different country.

Other wise they are from Gods own land,Good People

yv2r

many times asked many malayalees when they say from kerala,who is your Prime Minister and President

lipsy2482

Mallu means a hard working people, they will not shy to do any rather work even an ordinary tea boy job or a manager of any firm in Gulf.
A tea boy popularly known as LIPTON OPERATOR and Manager means a recruitment agent for Kerala.

hay come on soniya.........

people from kerala is not know as MALLUS...

People from outside india often refer 2 us as “Mallus”.
some people refer themselves as “Mallus” thinking that it is a short form 4 ‘Malayalee’.

BUT please note that the meaning of the Hindi word “Mallu” as given in the Oxford Hindi English Dictionary is “MONKEY”.

*Oxford** Hindi English Dictionary by R.S. McGregor – Pg. 795.
First Published by Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1993*

So next time before referring 2 yourself as a ‘ Mallu’ – please think!!!

And if anyone else calls you a “Mallu” – politely but firmly tell them that
u r a MALAYALEE not a ‘Mallu’.

Please tell all the Keralites and create awareness about this term so that WE do not cheer people.
(*like monkeys*),when they are actually calling
us “monkeys” ……………..
