Malayaleeaano? If you are a Malayalee and you have been living out of Kerala for a long time, then you would have heard this question very often. The moment this question is answered in the affirmative, some obvious questions like, “naattil evidaya veedu” (Where is your house in Kerala?), “veettil aarokke unde”(Who all are there in your family?), follow and eventually a whole host of pleasantries are exchanged. Within no time strangers become friends. This simple question evokes such a great nostalgia and positive vibes between two Malayalees when they get introduced to each other, outside Kerala.
Just after finishing our S.S.L.C. or Pre-Degree (with an additional qualification of Typing & Shorthand), when many of us boarded the train to Delhi about half a century ago, the only dream in our mind was to be the bread winner of our family and send some money back home to support our dependents living there. We had no other dreams in our minds except to earn a living and fulfill the financial needs of our families – the medical care of our ageing parents, education of our siblings and marriage of our sisters. Due to the lack of employment opportunities in Kerala, the number of migrants from Kerala kept increasing day by day, month by month and year by year. We never dreamed of buying a house for ourselves here as we kept promising ourselves that - one fine day! I will return to my native land and settle in my hometown. P. Bhaskaran, the famous Malayalam poet said 'Nalikerathinte nattilenikkoru nazhiyidangazhi mannundu' (In the land of coconuts, I have a small piece of land). We kept waiting for our parents to get well, we waited for our sisters to get married, we waited for our younger brothers to complete their education; the wait never ended.
Now that we have come to terms with our past and have decided to settle here, let us focus on our future. Let us dream a little differently now. Let us think of building a concrete and stable foundation for ourselves. Let us think of buying a house for ourselves where we can sleep without the fear of landlords haunting our minds for petty things. Let us think of the education of our children; let us think of marrying them off and see them settled peacefully in their life. Let us think of securing our old age without depending on others. This should be the new dream of the present generation of Malayalee. The prolonged wait is over! It is time to re-tune ourselves and adapt to the changes around us.
