The workers in Mullakkadu leave their homes early in the morning to work in the plantations or towns nearby. Some have their own plantations, and some make certain articles in their homes to sell them in the towns. A few of the villagers, including women, go out to catch fish in the streams and rivers found in the village.
In the afternoon, most of them are at home. Some of them take a nap (Kutti thookam) after lunch, do some work in their small gardens or pay some visit to the small shops in the village. In various parts of the village, children may be found playing the popular games of the village.
In Mullakkadu (Not only in Mullakkadu, almost in all villages) there is a headman (Panchayathu Thalaivar) whose duty is to settle quarrels among the villagers and maintain peace in the village. Whenever there is a dispute, the villagers go to the headman who is held in such esteem that his words have the force of law. In this way the villagers have developed their own laws, and the crimes of cities are almost unknown to the people of the village.
During a festival, the whole Mullakkadu is alive with activities. This is the time for the men, women and children of the village to wear their best clothes and the village is full of colour.
The majority of the people in Mullakkadu live on agriculture. They used to harvest paddies, bananas, black grams etc. Harvest time is certainly the busiest and the merriest time of the year. During the harvest, the villagers often get up very early in the morning. They go to their rice-fields to harvest the bumper crop – the fruit of many months of hard work.
