Ranjini Haridas & Anakkattil Eappachan

Ranjini Haridas & Anakkattil Eappachan

        These days, the kerala tea table conversations feature this lady, Miss. Ranjini Haridas quite often. For those of you who do not know her, she is a television anchor from Kerala. Now why should she feature in Pink Lungy? The reason is that she is so damn popular in our state!

        She is not your typical quite well mannered demure television anchor. She is gutsy, free spirited and unconventional as far as social norms are concerned. To borrow a few words from Eappachan of Lelam film, she is outspoken and irreverent. I think she is very similar to Eappachan. He also never behaved as per the social norms. Remember the scene between him and Jagannatha Varma?

Now, these are not exactly the qualities which the audience are used to. Add to this, her lack of perfect Malayalam diction. Like audience in other parts of the country, it took some time for the Kerala audience to get used to her.  But now I feel people have begun accepting her for who she is.

        You may like her, You may dislike her. But she is damn good at her job. Should she bring down the decibel level a few notches? I personally think she should. But then again it is her personal choice and as long as the audience like it, why should I complain?
