To begin with, South Indians are not madrasis, they are Keralaites, Andhrites, Kannadas and Tambrahms. Four different regions, different cultures, different languages and lot many other differences that make each one of them distinct. 

This might have been debated, mentioned or discussed upon a billion times, but still most people end up getting confused! If you are a South Indian, dating one, marrying one or have a close friend who is one, you would understand what they are going through! 

Here's a list of stuffs every South Indian would have heard at least once in their lifetime! 

Dude, idli-dosa is not our staple food, rice is  

Sorry buddy, our lives don't revolve around sambars and dosas. 

They must be stinking rich coz they are loaded with gold  

Undeniably, they have a thing for gold. And they love flaunting them at weddings, but to assume they are born rich is not happening! 

They don't follow the licking-the-elbow style of eating 

Yes, they do eat with their hands on a banana leaf but don't lick the sambar literally off their elbows!

Nose piercing on the “wrong” side 

Hello, that is the right side for them! 

They are just doctors and engineers

And not every other one joins NASA! Evolution has struck the Southern India too and they no longer are stuck to the stereotypes.

They are nothing but serious and geek kinds

Partying is a strict no-no. Hell no, they love partying but not with everyone. They take time to open up! 

Every South Indian household does not use coconut oil for cooking 

Occasionally, they might, but no way is it a regular practise. 

They always wear gajras 

Gajra is a part of the culture and they don't wear it every day. FYI, only on special occasions.  

Oh you are a South Indian, how come you are not dusky? 

Peeps! It's not a mandate that every South Indian ought to be dusky. Look at Vidya Balan and Aishwarya Rai. 

South Indians are boring 

Because they are inclined towards studies, South Indians are not considered fun people. But see Lola Kutty, the alter ego of Anuradha Menon and Suresh Menon, the comedian.
