Most of the Keralites are gold crazy. There is however an exemption in upper cast, they are not so crazy like others. In their wedding too gold ornament does not play a major role as dowry. Dowry itself is insignificant in their case. In the gold craze there is a welcome aspect too. Many school drops outs in villages could get lucrative job after learning the craft of ornament making for few months. Till few years back this craft was confined to goldsmith caste alone and others not even dared to think of learning the craft. Handsome wage earned by the work attracted youths from all casts and creeds.
