Textile shop in Kerala grabs attention for unusual name

corona

KOCHI: A textile shop in Kerala is grabbing everyone's attention for its unusual name ‘Corona’.

Located about 40 kms from Kochi, Corona is a textile shop owned by Pareed. For several years, he has been popularly known as 'Corona Pareed'.

"Now, I am a sought after person here. While many want to take a selfie, others just smile when they look at me. I see many people travelling in vehicles and when they pass through in front of my shop, they pop their head out and take a glance," Pareed told IANS.

Corona Textiles sells cloth materials and also has a stitching unit.

"I looked up in the dictionary and liked the word," he said when asked about how he settled for this name for his shop.

Pareed, wary of what the word today means, has made sure that the deadly coronavirus is kept out of his shop. He has kept a sanitizer for all those who enter his shop.
