Deconstructing culture as a diasporic Malayalee

As a Malayalee, I find myself proud of my community, my language, and my fellow Malayalees (both in India and chilling in various other countries).

As a Malayalee, I also find myself giving my people severe judging looks at shitty things they do in the name of “culture” and “tradition”.

This is my introspection/rant space for the lot of it.

(Of course, I’m still learning as I go, so if I say things that don’t make sense or aren’t all there, feel free to call me out on it. I’m happy to engage.)
