- Less than 60- You are to Mallus what George bush is to rock music! Though it is good not be mallufied, try not to be racist (especially if u live in a place where mallus are in a majority)
- 61 to 90 – You have a good balance between your normal side and Mallu side. However this puts you in the gray area and therefore you are condemned to hell. So live your life to the fullest NOW.
- 91 to 120- you’re not a hardcore Mallu yet, there’s still hope for you, though you’re leaning on the white side there’s still a bit of black on you so technically are gray too! Hence you are on the damned side as well!! The choice is yours! Be a white Mallu (there’s no such thing all mallus are black) or be happy and g(r)ay.
- More that 120- Welcome to the MVM club i.e. The Mallu Velya Makri Club. There’s no escaping it. You’re a Mallu through and through and have most probably gotten a score of 150. The good news is you aren’t in the gray but I guess that’s the silver lining to your gray, I mean black cloud. You win a candle light date at Sheikh Al Wahab Fruit Salad Menon’s Cafe in Yemen with Liju/Achu, where u will be a served a meal that consists of Sambhar (with potatoes of course) rice, fried bananas, jack fruits and coconut water for drinks! Goongraajulazens! Tenju berry muj for taking this survey.
