This is straigh off the Kerala state government website. It lists the council of ministers and their hobbies. Most of them list the standard boring stuff like reading, library etc as their hobbies. But the following two definitely are the interesting ones.
A. K. Balan, Minister for Welfare of Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes and
Backward Classes, Electricity
Hobbies: Reading, Plamistry, Magic, etc
I am assuming its a typo and actually Palmistry. Even then, palmistry and magic for a communist minister seems like a very useful tool. He can use his palmistry to predict the bright prospects of joblessness in Kerala and use his magic to convince people that joblessness is actually good for them.
N. K. Premachandran, Minister for Irrigation, Command Area Development Authority Ground Water Development, Water Supply and Sanitation
Favorite Pastime and Recreation: Cinema, Traveling, Reading and playing cards
Playing cards, i.e., sheetukali. This guys should be having a lot of free time to engage in the pleasures of playing cards.
