Kerala History: Glimpses from 1956 to 2011

Because it tilts more towards the generation that grew up in the 90s, so that’s what we are. Because there are multiple events and people and struggles we left out from our long list, we would like to hear your thoughts. 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, and as always we would like to hear your thoughts.

Tharoor: One year since

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 not understand when people say “tharoor is the new kinda politician”. I do understand that he never fit in, but that is not enough to claim that he is any different or any better.

Seriously? with Antony Perumbavoor around? what was the reason for breakup of shashi taroor’s 1st marriage? – We all should start from this basic question. what is exact word for counting people of india – […]

If Obama is…

Assassinated With less than three weeks until Election Day, a big question is looming over the campaign for the White House, and it has nothing to do with the economic crisis or the caustic exchanges between Senators Barack Obama and John McCain over character and credentials.

“White” House

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/content/t/v/m/tvmtalkies/html/blog/wp-content/themes/canvas/includes/theme-shortcodes.php on line 340

A token pin on sale at the Texas Republican Convention venue and like one comment pointed out,shouldn’t it be “When Obama is President…” An irony given the fact that the south used to vote against Republicans till a few decades back because they were Abraham Lincoln’s Party. They were Abraham Lincoln’s Party.

While Obama wins…

She can’t be bargained with. She can’t be reasoned with. She doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And she absolutely will not stop, ever. Despite Obama winning Iowa yesterday, Tom Maguire feels Hillary will be tough to defeat. Hillary is arguably the most eligible candidate for presidency, as she puts it “a President from […]
