Mohanlal: I am grateful to the people of Andhra Pradesh for honouring me with the Nandi award

A lot has been happening over the last few days after the General Body Meeting of Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) took place last Sunday in Kochi. The newly elected office bearers decided to reinstate Dileep’s membership in the association after he was expelled when he was arrested by police officials for his alleged involvement in the Malayalam actress assault case. The decision to reinstate Dileep’s membership hasn’t gone down well with many actors and members of AMMA including the assaulted Malayalam actress who has reportedly filed a complaint with AMMA about the case.

Amidst all these activities, members of the Youth Congress Kerala started protests outside Mohanlal’s house asking him to step down as the President of AMMA or remove Dileep from the association. Reports reveal that the activists shouted slogans against the actor and asked him to reverse his decision to reinstate Dileep in the association. Reportedly, few members even tried to break into the house but were stopped by the security officials at the house. Fan associations of Mohanlal have issued a statement that any actions like these against their star will be dealt with extreme action and people should avoid physical harm during any such protests.

Dileep, who has been amidst all the storm, had earlier had said that he wouldn’t return to AMMA till the time he is cleared by the law in the Malayalam actress assault case. “I am happy that such a decision has been taken, but now that I am facing a case in which I have done nothing wrong, I do not wish to be active in any body till I come clean. I am deeply pained in hearing various criticism against AMMA in my name. I wish the newly elected committee of AMMA all the best,” Dileep had written in a letter to AMMA.

    Kerala stands out from the rest of India for its achievements on gender. The state has a high child sex ratio and the lowest incidence of maternal deaths in the country. Kerala’s women are also among the better educated in India. Moreover, unlike other states, both boys and girls are almost at par in educational attainment. But, surprisingly, fewer women work in Kerala than men. What’s more, female labor force participation in the state is declining. While rural men and women do similar kinds of jobs, women living in cities tend to have more salaried jobs than men.

    Chauvinism is an Indian issue not specific to Kerala.

    Mallu men are known for their chauvinism? Sure to an extend but that’s not a mallu issue it’s an Indian issue. Copying the following from worldbank:
