Even Messi is not spared :: LIONEL MESSI IN HALF MAST LUNGI!!! 

Lungi is a strategic dress. It's like a one size fit all pajama for Keralites.

Wearing something on the top half of your body is optional when you
are wearing a lungi. This is the reason why females are not found
wearing this awesome dress.

The technique of wearing a lungi/mundu is passed on from generation to
generation through verbal communication. If you think it is an easy
task to wear it. you are wrong! It requires lot of techniques,
including breathe control. A lungi/mundu when perfectly worn won't
come off even if it shows 8 on the richter scale.

A lungi is not attached to the waist using duct tape, staple,rope or
velcro. it's a bit of mallu magic whose formula is a closely guarded
secret like that of Coca Cola ingredients.. 

"Wearing a lungi and managing to keep it up there is tougher than
flying a MIG. I can fly a MIG with eyes closed, but not wear a
lungi.(a retired MIG pilot)

A lungi can be worn 'FULL MAST' or 'Half Mast'. Like the flags of
nation flown at different heights.Wearing it at full mast has lots of
disadvantages, rather than advantages. A major disadvantage can be
experienced when the neighbour dog runs after you or on a rainy day.

A mallu can play cricket, foot ball or any ball when the lungi is
worn in half mast. A mallu can even climb a coconut tree by wearing
lungi in half mast. "It's not a good idea to look up on a mallu when
he is on a coconut tree"

The 'Lungi Wearing Mallu Union' [LUWMU, pronounced LUV-MU], a union
which works towards the 'upliftment' of lungi cult, strongly disagree
the younger generation's trend of wearing Burmuda under the lungi.
They say that making youngsters wear Burmuda under the lungi is a
hidden agenda by the CIA.

A malayali wears lungi round the year, all climates, all seasons.
It's like a second skin. Unlike 'summer dress','monsoon fashion' etc
etc a mallu has one fashion only! Lungi fashion that does not fade or
change from season to season.

A lungi/mundu can be worn any time of the day/night. [Some double it
as blanket at night.] It also doubles up as swimwear, parachute,
facemask, shopping basket,water filter,sleeping bag , a swing.etc etc.
When these lungi's are decommissioned from service,they become table
cloths..Hmm. ..The options are endless. There is a new subject in
colleges called "Applied Lungionics'.

PS: According to some reports the reason behind the low productivity in
Kerala is due to the fact that 80% of the productive working hour is
spend for wearing the lungi at half mast.
