Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.

Patriarchy is something that many aim to cleanse our cultures of, to usher in the era of social and gender equality.

The Nairs and Ezhavas of Kerala, and Bunts and Billavas of Karnataka are matrilineal societies that continue to thrive in a patriarchal country.

Kerala remains separate from the rest of India in many ways. Be it literacy policy, form of government, or cultural practices, this state does not always conform to the ideal that India is known for.
