Khalasi word – bonus information about it
Well, this song celebrates the life of Khalasis, who are skilled Indian natives engaged in constructing handmade seagoing Uru boats at Beypore port town of Kerala, India. These Khalasis have been engaging in the building and launching of dhows (wooden vessels) for the past few centuries. Since the majority of them are traditional Mappila Muslims, they are also called Mappila Khalasis.
They also draw Urus (traditional trading vessels) ashore for repair and maintenance. Interestingly, Khalasi in Arabic language means dockyard worker, sailor, or lascar.
