The speaker Maitreyan expressed his views about the way of engaging people in modern life style in the session Manushyare Ariyan at the fifth edition of Kerala Literature Festival. According to Maitreyan, apart from the patriarchal view, an elegant and definite kind of life style should be avoided.
“An open and free modern way of life should be taken up by the people,” said Maitreyan. "I'm a Malayali, but now I'm not a man who choose to point it out,” he added. The speaker also concentrated and commented upon the poems by Vayalar. Maitreyan also opined that, “Humans are the same all over the world, but regional and cultural heritage is different. Nowadays the myths spread faster than the truth. “Men are spiritualistic, women are trapped in the spiritualism,” he stated.
