reflection: malayalam

Another piece on the mutability of language. Not only is 'Malayalam' the longest palindrome in the dictionary, it also possesses natural symmetry.

Not only that, on closer observation, the word is also made up of another word - 'Malay' - which reads both from the front and from the back.

Malayalam: a language and race of a group of people living in India.
Malay: a language and race of a group of people living in most parts of South-East Asia.
