An aiport in Aranmula

The residents of Aranmula question the sheer arrogance of imperial governments in Delhi and Trivandrum deciding to land airplanes on their ponds, rivers, temples and farms. No technical arguments, no GDP discussions, no theory vs praxis confusions, no relativistic laziness

Lingavishappu by Vishnu Prasad

By |2013-11-11T01:06:56-05:00November 11th, 2013|Malayalam, Poetry|

In a recent interview with Madhyamam newspaper, the author talks about the 'hunter's viewpoint' when it comes to sexual assaults. Vishnu Prasad feels better understanding the hunter's social conditions is important enough and is seldom thought of. He feels male sexuality is suppressed in Kerala's social conditioning. He goes to the extent of claiming men are more sexually frustrated than women. He details the 'hunter's viewpoint' in detail in some of his poems, like the recently controversial "Linga vishappu" in which he says, the man's under wear that gets torn from excessive masturbation does not lie about his social condition, about the suppressed hunger of the penis.

Mohanlal’s Grand Master – Review

By |2020-05-15T21:49:52-05:00May 11th, 2012|Malayalam, Movie Review, talkies|

Mohanlal plays Chandrashekhar,a defeated IPS officer, who takes his personal briefcase of losses to work. He unlike Sherlock Holmes who uses cocaine, plays chess in office to keep his mind alert. Chess references abound in the movie, as a serial killer challenges Chandra to a game which combines crime and personal life. There is a trail of murdered women. Nothing is out of bounds, as Chandra accepts the challenge. Lalu Alex is the killer. (I'm kidding! he is not there in the film)
