The Ubiquitous Malayalee -- LizGeBeth

The Ubiquitous Malayalee -- LizGeBeth
They used to say many years ago that you will find a Malayalee even on the moon. Given the fact that the moon is yet to be inhabited, in the proper sense, it would obviously be the height of the Malayalees’ reach, as on date. Guess the goal-post has since been shifted, and Mars should be substituted for the moon. However, it will come as no surprise that one day our Malayalee will be there too. And yet the reality, that one will find a Malayalee in every corner of this inhabited world, cannot be ignored. 
 
 
So many characteristics define this generally harmless creature, from his physical attire to his mental prowess. Everything about a Malayalee makes him distinct and different. If he is noted for his colourful lungis and highly accented English, on one hand, he is highly commended for his entrepreneurial capabilities and persevering attitude, on the other. The Malayalee is one species of a kind, who can laugh even if the joke is on him-- such is his heightened level of tolerance and sense of humour. Nonetheless, he is proud of his rich heritage, culture which is an amalgamation of Aryan and Dravidian principles, and strong ethical value systems. 
 
 
100% literacy
 
A Malayalee, though he is known for his genuineness and hard work outside his own home country, is generally a laid- back guy in his own motherland. Yet, his heightened political awareness, coupled with his ability to sync with people of any nationality, religion, caste or creed, makes him a team- player on any global platform, regardless of his educational or social background.
 
Is it difficult to picture this highly common specimen of the human race? Not at all; all thanks to the myriad ways Bollywood picturises him - lungi- clad, spouting phonetically incorrect English, garish body language, pot-bellied physique …. so on and so forth. Yet, one must never forget, he comes from the state which was the first to declare 100% literacy. Whether we like it or not, he represents a rich and myriad heritage that goes back several centuries.
 
Migration stands high on the list of all the characteristics a Malayalee is known for. They say there are more Malayalees in the Gulf than the locals themselves. Many have made it big in this part of the world through sheer hard work and dedication. Be it M. A. Yousuf Ali, with his chain of supermarkets, or Joy Alukkas, with his chain of jewellery and lifestyle stores and money exchanges, or Sunny Varkey, with his GEMS line of educational establishments and so on... the list can run into pages, such is the success Malayalees have achieved in the Gulf, by their conscientiousness, foresight and willingness to take up challenges.
 
There are also those who come with dreams and end up being part of the grind. They are the ones who are either employees or are small business-owners, who want to eventually make it big, never forgetting that the Gulf is a land of countless opportunities.
 
In the coming months, we shall write about  them all, those who made it big, and also those, who may not have grabbed headlines,but did well for themselves and are better off, because of the migration.
