New Delhi: Former Supreme Court Judge Markandey Katju is all praises for Keralites, whom he described as "the real Indians".
The former Press Council of India chairman on Thursday wrote a Facebook post in which he mentioned that Keralites have in them the “quintessential qualities of Indians”.
Writing further, Katju says Keralites live united and in harmony, “and therefore they are symbolic and represent the whole of India. So they are the real Indians, and all of us must try to emulate them and imbibe their spirit”.
According to Katju, Keralites are found in every nook and corner of the world. "When I was a University student and lawyer in Allahabad I would often go to the Coffee House. I found that most of the waiters there were Keralites, and I became friends with many of them. In many hospitals in India and abroad the nurses are Keralites. I believe there is no illiteracy in Kerala," he wrote in the post.
