    Dear Mohanlal Sir,

    No No Lalettaaa…….

    I am a great fan ofyou, you r a great actor, not only that but also great thinker too. i love to read your writings, it is very simple to understand and soulful.

    I like your above writing very much about the small things we do. I think anger is the main reason for all our problems. if we can controll our anger, we can easily controll all our problems. I think so.
    I like to share a story here with you. I dont know whether you like it or not, but after reading your words i would like to share this with you.

    A Hindu saint who was visiting river Ganges to take bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other…. He turned to his disciples smiled’n asked.

    ‘Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?’

    Disciples thought for a while, one of them said,’Because we lose our calm, we shout.’

    ‘But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.’asked the saint

    Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.
    Finally the saint explained, .

    ‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.

    What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small…’

    The saint continued,’When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper’n they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other’n that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’

    He looked at his disciples and said.

    ‘So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.’

    With lots of love & respect

    Dear Sir,
    Sorry to comment in English. Agreed, lot of people experience such kind gestures from Malayaalees.

    My wife is a French national and we live in Kochi city. We lead a normal life, I mean we do not live in ac rooms/cars, but live like a normal malayaalee and is always in the sphere of the general public, walking / travelling by public bus/train. Even when I am with her, we are married for more than 7 years) we feel quite ridiculed by the looks and comments – including from women, of educated Malayaalees And when my wife is alone, some of the incidents that happen are terrible, and more than embarassing.
    I really find it difficult to understand the pride, Malayaalee society shows, boasting about our literacy levels.

    January 21, 2013 at 6:01 PM

    Laletta, keep writing. Such writings should reach the millions of malayalees. Through their actions it should reach the billion. Only from a good heart comes such good writings. I respect the good soul in you, Laletta. May God bless you many more years to march ahead and may your words and writings transfer a generation.

    With regards
    Deva

    Laletta,

    I have travelled across India many times. India baffles me. It is like home every where.I have travelled almost always alone many times from the sea shores in Kanyakumari to the heights of Himalayas. And every journey brought me so many times face to face with wonderful people – auto drivers,cute children, army peolpe, farmmers, teachers – and each of them has blessed me tonnes of blessings. Last week i was in Kanchipuram. I am a sort of freelancer, when ever money flows in to my world it is either book or temple.No special reasons. It has been that way for the past many years. This time as i was returning from Kanchi, life fixed me in the company of two solidiers one from Kashmir going to his home for Pongal and other belonged to ITBP. They helped me to fix few questions that chased me for years. Blessings flow in all shapes and sizes.

    Many times in Tanjavur, in Uttranchal i have experienced a care from people that has surpised me – it has happened from every cross section of people as if i was one of their kith and kin. Among all Indian states/’spaces’ my favourite is Uttranchal and Himachal – people live from their heart and i love my kerala too – no other state is so blessed as far as nature is concerned. To be in kerala is a feast for eyes – life is green and some way there is a fullness. Every time as train passes the border from tamil land to kerala – the air becomes suddenly ‘light’ and there is a huge difference – i have felt in numerous times- satyam !!

    And, laletta thank you for good words about keralites. Every day it is all complaints, complaints. To be very honest i myself had so many good experiences here in my state from all sections of people. Except when i rarely see television or newspaper, i dont have any reason to feel bad about my people. All this television and newspaper represents very small fraction of ‘us’. I remember what Guru Nitya use to say – dont learn about the world from newspaper, learn about it from the children in the neigbourhood, from tress that blossom and bless !!

    Love,
    rakesh

    മോഹന്‍ലാല്‍ എന്ന വ്യക്തിയെ എനിക്ക് നേരിട്ട് പരിചയമില്ല.എന്നാല്‍ അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ നടന വൈഭവം സിനിമകളിലൂടെ അനുഭവിച്ചറിഞ്ഞിട്ടുണ്ട്.ഞാന്‍ അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ ആരാധകന്‍ ഒന്നുമല്ല.എന്നാല്‍ അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ നടനം എനിക്ക് ഇഷ്ടമാണ് താനും.അത്യാവശ്യം ചിത്രങ്ങളൊക്കെ വരയ്ക്കുന്ന ആളാണ്‌ ഞാന്‍.പലപ്പോഴും ഞാനൊരു ചിത്രകാരന്‍ ആണെന്ന് പറയുമ്പോള്‍ പലരും എന്നോട് ചോദിക്കുന്ന ഒരു ചോദ്യം മോഹന്‍ലാലിനെ വരക്കാന്‍ സാധിക്കുമോ എന്നാണു.സത്യം പറഞ്ഞാല്‍ ഏറ്റവും എളുപ്പത്തില്‍ വരയ്ക്കാന്‍ സാധിക്കുന്ന ഒരു മുഖമാണ് മോഹന്റെത്.വളരെ ലളിതം .ആ ലാളിത്യം ഏറ്റവും കൂടുതല്‍ ഞാന്‍ അനുഭവിച്ചറിഞ്ഞത് മാതൃഭുമി യാത്രയില്‍ അദ്ദേഹം എഴുതുന്ന ലേഖനങ്ങളിലൂടെ ആണ്.ഈ ലാളിത്യമായിരിക്കാം ഒരു പക്ഷെ അദ്ധേഹത്തെ ഇത്രയധികം ജനപ്രിയന്‍ ആക്കുന്നതും .മലയാളിയുടെ ഹൃദയത്തെ തൊട്ടറിഞ്ഞ അദ്ധേഹത്തിന്റെ രചന അദ്ധേഹത്തിന്റെ സ്വന്തം കൈപ്പടയിലൂടെ വായിക്കാന്‍ കഴിഞ്ഞതില്‍ സന്തോഷം തോന്നുന്നു.

    Laletta,
    Regarding this thoughtful message,What comes to my mind is “Little drops of Water make a mighty Ocean”—whether those little drops are good or bad.Let the Malayali be aware of this and that we will be surrounded by that ocean of either of stinking garbage or fragrant goodness,it is our choice.

    മലയാളിയുടെ നന്മകളെക്കുറിച്ച് ഒരാളെങ്കിലും പറഞ്ഞത് കേട്ടപ്പോള്‍ ആശ്വാസമോ സന്തോഷമോ ഒക്കെ തോന്നി.മറുനാട്ടില്‍ ജീവിക്കുന്ന മലയാളികള്‍ക്ക് മലയാളിയുടെ കുറ്റങ്ങള്‍ പറയാനാണ് കൂടുതല്‍ താല്പര്യം, നന്മകളെ കണ്ടില്ലെന്നു നടിക്കാനും.സ്വന്തം നാടിനെ സ്നേഹിക്കാനും സേവിക്കാനും അവര്‍ മറന്നു പോകുന്നു.അടുത്ത തലമുറയും അതല്ലേ കണ്ടു പഠിക്കുന്നത് ?സ്വന്തം സുഖജീവിതം മാത്രം മുന്നില്‍ കണ്ടു മറുനാട്ടില്‍ നല്ലകാലം ചെലവഴിക്കുന്നവരെ ന്യയീകരിക്കുന്നതെങ്ങനെ?

    Respected Mohanlal has written in this blog that ‘the issue and examples given here looks small but it is great in value. (sorry I dont have malayalam font, please excuse me for writing in English). I would say the meaning is also the same. It looks simple but it has tremendous importance especially today. I have also travelled and met many others including Arabs, Keralites, Tamils, North Indians, Kiwis, Canadians etc. Many of them share the same ‘nanma’ that we see in these Keralite examples in the blog. It is not exclusive to just Keralites. The important question Lalettan emphasises is why our community is not at the forefront of things despite this goodness. I feel financial or other achievements have very less connection to how a person’s character is (just like in the movie industry where we might not agree with a star’s personal life but we love his talent!)Of course Mohanlal is as humble as anyone can be, a bit painfully humble I might add! But not every great actor has this nature, yet many are big arent they!? So its just that there is no connection to the character with other achievements! Like we say locally, ‘palli vere, sranku vere’. The material rewards/punishments for good/bad character is given in a way which we don’t know for sure (i mean whether we would get it in the present or future).

    As for the Keralite psyche, sorry I arrogantly feel Keralites have a very high intellectual level be it in the creative field, technical, professional, political or even cultural level. See…, when you have a superior intellectual community like that and you get beautiful examples of these (like the examples in the blogg), you also have to suffer the flip side (the other side) of higher intelligence, which is really very dirty and twisted also!!! Jealousy, thinking too much before taking decisions thereby being weak decision makers, slightly more fearful than normal people (fear is associated with intelligence also, not just cowards!). So if we enjoy the privileges of being a good higher thinking society, we also have to suffer the bad side of the same intelligence! This is our curse!

    What we can do is exactly what Lalettan has done here (I am quoting Lalettan as anyone else doing it will not get attention. Also many of us welcome Lalettan to write more openly, many times I have felt he supresses what he wants to say and the only real Mohanlal we get is only on the screen!, outside the screen in ‘public’ he seldom opens up! which is a pity!)

    The media always sells negative issues and hence the higher thinking Malayalee being an addict to reading the newspaper too much, he thinks and slowly believes that being negative is the order of the day! He starts believing ‘nothing will work, no project will work, everybody is bad even if he does good things’ because that is what we read and how our unconscious mind will cement internally! Jealousy also increases as a result because we feel nobody can be good/successful and so when somebody breaks the trend and becomes successful, we cant bear it!. BUT!, If we can spread many many of these ‘small acts of kindness or positive things’ slowly our intelligence would imitate it (keralites are great in imitation and learning new skills hence our proficiency in many languages) Once we start spreading these good news, speak good things when we are in parties (instead of bad mouthing- another bad side of good intelligence) , once we can create that habit., slowly we would stop reading the negative news, and media would realise that we love positive news. Once we have this positive news spreading and automatically reduces our jealousy, I am hundred percent sure that suddenly it would spread to our political field and once political scenario in Kerala is changed, this small state would be the best in India or even Asia! (as we have proved we can make a country the best in the world in UAE and other Gulf countries!)

    See in Arab countries, ‘ONLY’ the talent and the goodness is forced out from Keralites, his fears and jealousy is not given 5 rupees value! See the unbelievable result!!! So we can be the best in the world! which is opposite in Kerala where his fears/jealousy has ‘freedom’ and also good examples like Lalettan has quoted. So though we cant follow a monarchy in Kerala, we can defeat this fear/jealousy but. I have stopped bad mouthing/jealous talks completely, have you? Spreading good actions, kind actions,selfless actions etc like the blogg here and reducing jealousy is the key for a Malayali prospering!
