Comparisons are Odious

Comparisons maybe odious but we never fail to compare Bengal and Kerala-and not for their Left leanings alone.
Kerala's diet is coconut, rice, banana, and fish while Bengal's diet is rice, fish, banana, and coconut. (The order matters).
Kerala's political cycle is Congress, Left, Congress, Left... While Bengal's political cycle is Congress, Congress, Left, Left, Left, Left, Left, TNC..
The Bengalee keeps adding alphabets to make new left parties: for eg, CPM, CPML, CPML (KS), CPML (CM)... The Malayalee thinks we need to put a stop at CPM.
Now, these are reconcilable differences. As are such subtle differences as this: the Keralite likes sea fish but the Bengalee likes fresh water fish.
But there is one irreconcilable difference:
The Malayalee husband needs to wear glasses, while the Bengalee husband needs to wear hearing aid. Why?
Because everytime the Malayalee wife addresses her husband, she confirms if he can see: Nokiyoo!! (Do you see?). On the other hand, the Bengalee wife confirms if her husband can hear: Ogo Sunchoo!! (Do you hear?)
