Communism and Kerala - VII_a

Now another party, AAP, has banned FDI in retail. As I've already discussed, commerce is one area where the casteist stranglehold is showing no letup. Small scale trading is the least ethical sector where tax evasion is rampant. So, it's a glorious mixture of casteism and corruption.

AAP might get a strong backing from merchant castes for their anti-FDI stance but the communists are losers in every sense.

My Maternal Lineage

This is a lazy post. My maternal lineage is officially still M* though I have identified it as M64* and now I have forgotten why I had assigned that subclade.

I have 2 HVR1/2 matches in Maharashtra and 8 in Kerala. One of the matches in Maharashtra is a Marathi Jew and all in Kerala are Malayali Jews. Now these two communities lived isolated existence from each other, therefore, migration of my uniparental maternal ancestry from northern Konkan to southern Konkan  region should be very old.

General understanding is that my ancestors moved from Telugu region to Tamil region and from there to Malayali region. It appears not all of them.
