Let’s See What We’ve Got Here

Erm.. What’s a Kaatukozhi?

Hello folks,
I am Rini and this is my 1,998,236th attempt at being consistent with a blog.
Anyhoo, as a young adult who had grown up in a traditional family, I’d make all sorts of excuses to stay out of home. I’d always be spending time with friends and skipping into every chance I got to travel with them. So, my mother referred to me as a kaatukozhi ( kaatu-ko-yyi) – a Malayalam term that translates to “forest chicken” aka wild chicken. It was a metaphor that described my nature of running wild and free. Now, I am claiming it as my identity to suit my incessant need to roam, travel and to never settle. So, this Kaatukozhi writes about everything she has to put up with. Okay? Okay.
