Deconstructing culture as a diasporic Malayalee

As a Malayalee, I’m  extremely proud of my community, my language, and my fellow Malayalees (whether they’re chilling in India or various other places over the globe).

But 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 them. I’m happy to engage.

On the other hand, if I say things that make you point excitedly at the screen while yelling “OMG YES”, tell me about your experiences. I’m happy to engage \(^,^)/
