Malayalam language in gradient background

Malayalam had around 35.5 million speakers in India as of 2011, with large speaker populations in the UAE, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Oman, the United States, Qatar, and Australia.

Malayalam is considered a classical language of India and has a long history dating back to the 9th-century വട്ടെഴുത്ത് (Vattezhuthu) script.

On the cultural front, Malayalis, or those who speak Malayalam, have a rich and diversified cultural legacy.

This is reflected in their vibrant festivals, traditional dance forms like Kathakali and Mohiniyattam, the martial art form Kalaripayattu, and a deep-rooted practice of Ayurvedic medicine.

In Kerala, fruits have a major cultural and traditional value. Numerous facets of culture, tradition, and daily life are represented by diverse fruits. For example, the coconut is considered a sign of fertility and prosperity.

The jackfruit is the official fruit of Kerala and signifies self-sufficiency as it can be used from root to fruit.

In the traditional ceremonies of Kerala, fruits play major roles. In fact, the Malayalam New Year or ‘Vishu’ is welcomed by a ritualistic preparation of ‘Vishukkani’ – a platter filled with seasonal fruits, vegetables, grains, and coins, symbolizing abundance and prosperity for the year ahead.

Harnessing knowledge of the diverse fruits name in Malayalam not only enriches language skills but can also pave the way to a deeper understanding of the vibrant culture and rich traditions of Kerala.
