I was at home and my uncle needs me to write CD of sree lalita sahasranaamam. He said he has promised the temple authorities that he would be giving them the CD. I took a replica of the original CD and gave it to my uncle. He said me to have the name written on it in Malayalam. I have never studied in Malayalam nor have attended any Malayalam schools, but I could remember the wordings thought by my mother during the summer vacations from school. I used to read small stories and was able to recognize Malayalam bus and movie boards that helped me a lot after my stay at kerala.
Therefore, this was my first CD work in Malayalam. :D
I often came with a question speaking with some malayalees who have been shifted to north India; why do you feel ashamed speaking in Malayalam or are you ashamed to be a malayalee? You may wonder why I came with such a question.
I know many north Indian malayalees who feel ashamed speaking in Malayalam to their children in front of the north Indians. I am proud to say that my Indian Marathi speakers always feel proud at using Marathi wherever they go. If you notice with a mind of a discoverer, you will find that the ratio in percentage of non-kerala Malayalam speakers versus kerala Marathi speakers is 40%:90%.
Malayalees have a good native place and language to be proud. Is it that we do not understand what we owe? To be frank I was born and brought up in North India but I love the place here. If it is called gods own country then its true.
I would like to narrate an incident that I witnessed once. There were two malayalees and a north Indian woman speaking in a group. A child passed by, and asked mother in Malayalam that he needs water. The proud malayalee replied the child in hindi pointing the vessel he should get it from. Later she scolded him for speaking in Malayalam. This shows how respect we have for our mother tongue. Even a mother is not ready to have a child accept malayalam language…or do we have an inferiority complex? Think yourself.
You will be astonished to hear that the young generation cannot speak in Malayalam and the children of north Indian malayalees(properly spelt as inferiorly compelled malayalees) only have the extra capability to write and speak in languages other than Malayalam and they are happy for doing that.
Hey! It is time to understand where you are wrong. You cannot escape your predecessors, neither your culture. Recognize them and understand their importance. It is not late. Therefore, be a "MALAYALEE" and grow your children as MALAYALEES speaking malayalam language.
