Malayalam

Lots of Malayam poetry, but almost zilch in translation. Why Malayalam? Kerala, the Indian state where it’s spoken, elected the planet’s first Communist government in 1957. They’ve been in power most of the time since. We now have a Malayalam speaker at Roomers. Our government treated he & his family like shit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malayalam http://keralaculture.org/major-poets-malayalam-poetry/546 https://www.poetrysoup.com/famous/poem/a_dead_flower_25592More Malayalam
