Shashi Tharoor, in The Hindu, tells us

  • why “Kerala is to India what France is to Europe”;
  • how “Keralites have a great deal to be chauvinistic about”; and,
  • about the “openness to outside influences and willingness to travel and work elsewhere” of Malayalis.

Take a look! Did all that remind you of the Zen story of four monks who decided to keep silence? It did to me 🙂
