As a Malayali looking to get married, which newspaper should you advertise in?

Kerala has, without a doubt, the most breathtaking scenic beauty with beautiful backwaters and an amazing backdrop. And this beautiful state also has unique wedding customs. A Malayalam wedding has many unique rituals and one of them is Muhurtham. In this ceremony, the kundlis of the bride and groom are matched after which a date is selected for the wedding. 

Unlike North-Indian weddings where most wedding ceremonies are performed after sundown, Malayalam weddings happen early in the morning. This difference in wedding timing is because South Indians consider themselves as Dravidians so the time after sunrise is considered to be auspicious. However, it is just the opposite for North-Indians or Aryans.
