This post can be understood only by the Keralites (people from a small state called Kerala in the country of India) or those who know Malayalam. I write here something regarding the proverbs in Malayalam.
Sorry to others..............
I’m going to write some newer versions for our proverbs (pazhanchollukal). I think they are relevant at present(I think only I may have that opinion!!!!).
The older ones:
Changaathi nannaayaal kannaadi venda
Adi thettiyaal aanayum veezhum
Kochi kandavanu achi (wife) venda
Pathukke thinnal panayum thinnam
The corresponding newer ones:
Kannaadi nannayal changathi venda!
Adi thettiyal manthrisabhayum veezhum
Bangalore (or any place outside Kerala) kandavanu veettukareyum venda.
Pathukke thinnal, avideyirunnu thanne thinno!!
Sorry all malayalis if I (being a malayali!!) have done anything wrong.
