Who came to your house last night? Is your daughter -in-law expecting? Do you know that the boy next door is having an affair with the girl staying up stairs? Have you seen how she dresses up. Wearing jeans! How shameful!! Such questions/ statements you hear every day and they do not surprise you. Wherever two or more women are seen together, the topic of conversation will be something based on the statements stated above. What to speak of women, even men have their own subjects of discussions, based on rumours, and baseless talks. The most common discussion is generally the boss. So and so is the 'chamcha' of the boss, he carries tales to the boss. Whether these statements are true or not, it is a fact that such blabber mouths carry gossips and blurt them out indiscreetly.
Often we find women indulging in gossips. Generally they are silly topics that they discuss. It is like an instrument of spending time at the cost of spoiling some one's reputation. Why must people be interested in what is cooking in the neighbour's house ?A new bride has come in a neighbouring house. She will be judged from head to toe. I remember that when I went as a bride to a small village in Kerala, there was no end to women coming in groups and peeping inside. Ocassionally they would giggle. For them a woman coming from Delhi was an exhibit. I called some of them near me. Instead of coming near ,they would hide their face and run away. All of them were illiterate villagers, who had never stepped out of the village .
But everyday when I stepped outside, I felt quite embarrassed. Piercing glances made me feel very awkward. They were generally amused at the sight of a high heeled footwear, sleeveless blouse, dark lipstick and make up. The maximum I could do was to not to apply lipstick.
But there was a greater surprise in store for them. They literally collapsed when they saw me driving. It appeared that they would collapse at the sight of a woman driving a car. It amused me to see them shocked.
One of the habits which tickled me was that when Keralites meet, they do not wish each other. They just smile. The broader the smile, the greater is the love/ affection on seeing each other! Another typical habit by which you can recognise a Keralite is their approval of a suggestion or saying yes, when something is offered to them. Instead of shaking their neck forward and backward, they shake it right to left or left to write as shown below in the video
