Being a Mallu during my school days was considered a privilege. In spite of the heavily accented clan that we were, all puns on our intonation and our duskier membrane were relegated to backseat, the moment we came dressed in those satin knickers when even the noble class could afford only polyester; or when we sported that enviable Casio digital watch; or when we had at least one Hero fountain pen in our pencil box.

Certainly not the most affluent community, when compared to the Gujaratis and the Marvaris, what made Malayalis still stand apart rubbing shoulders with the prosperous was that every household from the pea-shaped state that we belonged to, had an Indian Diaspora.

India is a film crazy country and the culture of filmmaking is integral to the culture of our country. Film stars are role models for almost every youth in this country and stories in the films mould the nature of behaviour of a majority of the population.

In such a country where almost everyone aspires to make a film, it is a fact that even graduate filmmakers produce at least twenty films, which proves that the film industry in protruding towards the below 35 years age bracket. In other words, talent is multiplying but even in such a scenario, it is a candid confession that many ideas by filmmakers for short-films, documentaries and even feature films end up as scribbling and noting in their work-room without materialising into reality.
