Ok, I realise you probably thought that no Non-Malayali would ever read this thread so I wont take any particular offence. Your avatar tells me it would be worthless to go into the Political differences between Kerala and Gujarat.In any gathering, the person complaining the loudest about Kerala's "trade unions" would be a mallu. How often do you see a Gujarathi or Bihari belittling their own states? Perhaps, we are all too smart for our good. Literacy has given rise to the urge to complain than to be constructive.
It is up to us to change and appreciate our beautiful state. And then to do something positive for it. Small bits perhaps, but with 15 million expats out there, that is a hell of a lot of small bits. Maybe then the politicians and bureaucrats will wake up.
But let me tell you, Gujaratis, my family included, have been belittling their own state for over 100years by leaving for better lives in every imaginable corner of the globe. Kenya/Uganda/Tanzania/Zambia/Zimbabwe/Malawi in the 1890s was hardly comparably to UAE/USA in the 2000s.
There is a MASSIVE difference between a long-standing international diaspora of business owning Gujaratis who have wealth and influence in their adopted countries and the Malayali diaspora. Im not saying that EVERY Gujarati is a millionaire or anything, but it is a big stretch of the imagination to talk about the Mallu Diaspora as being comparable to the Gujarati or even Punjabi Diasporas around the world.
All this is without even mentioning the financial muscle of the Bombay Gujaratis.
I can appreciate that you want what is best for your state/city etc, but please think more carefully before making such statements in future.
