Due to Thiruvananthapuram's location at the southernmost tip of India, the influence of Hindi in this city is very less. Due to this isolation, Thiruvananthapuram has very less diversity in culture. Being a part of a princely state, the local culture was maintained more than giving importance to English language. But again, the parliament representative has nothing to do with the language skills of the local people.

Thiruvananthapuram has a language barrier just like Chennai and Coimbatore. Most signboards in Thiruvananthapuram have only Malayalam signboard. People also speak mostly Malayalam and a bit of Tamil here. It js very difficult for an English or Hindu speaking person to settle in Thiruvananthapuram. I found Kochi to be a cosmopolitan city. In Kochi, a handful of people will converse back in English. Kochi also has a more diverse culture than Thiruvananthapuram.

All you Keralites, just wait till your Kerala becomes a Muslim majority state.
Muslims are the majority in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Maldives.
In these Muslim-majority countries:
1. Apostasy is punished with Death Penalty
2. Criticism to their religion receives Death threats
3. Non-Muslims are threatened and falsely accused with Blasphemy laws.

Also in Pakistan, the sewage drainage cleaning work is reserved for Non-Muslims only. Most of the Non-Muslims are forced to live in slum areas in Pakistan.

I speak the truth and these mentioned above are genuine facts.

Shame on you Keralites for even prepared to work as slaves in Middle-East countries. Kerala is notorious for Gold Smuggling activities.

I very much agree with you @Nishant Varma. Life in Thiruvananthapuram is a nightmare if you don't know Malayalam or some Tamil. The local Thiruvananthapuram people will not reply back to you in English even if they know English. That's why apart from Keralites or a few Tamils, no one wants to settle down in Trivandrum. Truth can be bitter to hear, but these are facts.
Nishant Varma on Mar 05, 2021:
I am very honest in my comments. Trivandrum has a huge language barrier. I am from Delhi, and it was extremely difficult to live in Trivandrum without knowing Malayalam. Although Trivandrum portrays its MP as an English dictionary, the reality is very different. People in Trivandrum will never cooperate with you if you don't know Malayalam. The language barrier here is much worse than even Chennai. In Trivandrum, most people will not converse with you even if you speak in English. I am sorry for being blunt just for speaking out the facts.

Sites such as YouTube, Quora, Times of India, Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms are filled with the hate comments by Hindutva militants regarding the minorities. Social media and OTT platforms are rheir playground. The Indian government will promote online Hindutva militants much more from now on and suppress any form of dissent towards them.

I have been to Trivandrum. The treelined roads, boulevards, neatly marked roads and architecture in this city are splendid. Kerala's healthcare system is very impressive.
Air pollution is also very less.
Trivandrum definitely has very good Quality of Life.

I don't understand vwhy our healthcare ranks so low. Probably healthcare, is not just technology, it is the effectiveness of our system. Kerala could do well during nipah and even Covid due to its active healthcare system.
But maybe precision healthcare. Yes we need to improve.

Thiruvananthapuram has very beautiful and clean roads. Lots of trees, parks and beaches are located in this city. Lanes are properly marked on the roads. People give utmost importance to cleanliness and road discipline over here in TVM.
All the roads are lined with tall trees, and this city is way better than Kochi and Kozhikode.
TVM has 100% literacy rate and there are absolutely no slums in this city.
TVM has great quality of life, not just in India but entire Asia.
Good to know that more software companies are investing in TVM. TVM will develop faster after the opening of Vizhinjam port.
If the rules are made more strict, then Thiruvananthapuram can definitely become Singapore very quickly.
Mathew Kurian on Feb 02, 2020:
I fully agree that Mangalore and Thiruvananthapuram are having the best Quality of Life in India. Thiruvananthapuram is our state capital, but Mangalore is also a 2nd home for many Malayalis.

These are 2 cities are having the highest Human Development Index (HDI) in India, probably their HDI are more than 0.9 in 2020, and absolutely ZERO slums. The HDI of Mangalore and Thiruvananthapuram are comparable to the cities of UK, Australia and USA.

I hope and sincerely request to extend Kerala's high-speed railway corridor project to Mangalore.
