“ഹ അമ്മാ പാര്ട്ടി എന്ന് പറയുന്നത് കമ്മ്യൂണിസ്റ്റ് പാര്ട്ടിയെ ആണ്, മറ്റവര് കോണ്ഗ്രസ് ആണ്” “ഓ നമുക്ക് എല്ലാ പാര്ട്ടിയും ഉണ്ട്, കോണ്ഗ്രസ് പാര്ട്ടിയും, കമ്മ്യൂണിസ്റ്റ് പാര്ട്ടിയും”
Because rather than big events, we have focused on big patterns. And while we disagree on a lot many things here – political, cultural, developmental, social, and personal, I hope we all agree that Kerala got it mostly right in the past 55 years. Because Kerala is the No.1 state in India, here we go, […]
The last 15 minutes of campaigning for Assembly elections in Peroorkada Junction, at the nerve center of the Vattiyoorkavu constituency in Trivandrum. K.Muraleedharan of INC takes on CPIM independent Cherian Philip in this VIP constituency encompassing AKG Center, Legislative Assembly, Cliff House, and Indira Bhavan.
But if you are looking for a government which hits the right buttons with a 20 year vision for the state, which does not sell out our precious assets and our land, which has clear policies for human development and the ability to execute that on multiple fronts, which does not bow to the pressures […]
Now for the blockbusters from the past 22 years – 1988 – Chitram , 1989 – Ramjirao Speaking , 1990 – His Highness Abdulla , 1991 – Godfather , 1992 – Pappayude Swantham Appose , 1993 – Manichitrathazhu , 1994 – Commisioner , 1995 – Spadikam , 1996 – Hitler , 1997 – Aaram Thampuran […]
This is a question thats been nagging the boys and yours truly for years. In a recent meetup in San Francisco, the standing (also sitting and sometimes lying down) committee on “Figuring out what the hell Mohanlal talks about in his movies” watched Mohanlal’s Raavanaprabhu.
It is more saddening to see that Tharoor is not exiting on his own, but being sacked around accusations of corruption. If he had resigned in protest against “the red tape”, or “allocation of funds to Kerala”, or even “ludicrous nature of Indian foreign policy” it would have been a worth while tenure. I do […]
Hope you had a great decade, take my word(I just ran the numbers), the next ten years are gonna be much much better! It’s already 2010 in India, Happy New Year to all! I’m ringing in the new year in Eastern time at NYC with a small CET get-together, a couple more hours to go […]
almost all birds we knew have flown, many of us have kids our age, Mammooty aged back ten years, Shilpa Shetty got married, Kavya got divorced, IFFK turned 14, K Karunakaran is still alive (now I didn’t see that coming), malayalam cinema returned to world class, I check my mails every 4 minutes, Dhwani is […]
So to say the least I left the city with a good taste in my mouth and a lot of hope about this nth renaissance in Malayalam movie. And a real renaissance it is I feel, when I hear about Kerala Cafe, Neelathamara, and Paleri Manickam.(though with a little regret about missing all the action).
I found this poem today(via Deepak’s blog), and once again the urge to learn the malayalam keyboard and post in malayalam grows overwhelming. Like there are a few things which you can say only in Malayalam. Like see how a beautiful verse loses its vitality when I attempt to translate it, Raghu Raghu says his […]
Like the leapord, the rest of the city was blanketed inside the heavy showers – sleeping. And I for one found out that Leopards are solitary animals except during mating season. Then again if you sleep for sixteen hours a day, you’ll mostly end up solitary, ha lonely. Visiting Trivandrum Zoo after close to a […]
