Kerala Under Fever Threat!

In Malabar, it is the season of rain; the season of monsoon. But people are under the clutch of heat. Don't be mislead by this statement. It is not the heat of the season that I am referring to, the monsoon season is usually damp and cold but the heat mentioned here is actually from fever! The majority of the population is on the fever bed. The H1N1 flu, dengue, malaria, chikungunia, tomato fever, and so many other strange named, and mysterious types of fevers, inflict people's lives even causing them their death.

The general cause, which can be summed up is the climate change, which provided the apt situations for the germs to perpetrate. There have been no precise statements made yet from the part of the government or from the health department on the causes. Simply because there are not much studies carried out on this topic and no one knows what is happening, except that someone is getting high temperature on one day, limbs being swelled up making the patients unable to walk on the other, and someone is getting itch all over the body, even after the fever subsided.

No one knows anything except the newspaper reports, which say people died of swine flu, dengue fever and so on. What the hell is happening! Is it some kind of a tribulation from hell? Is the end of the world near? Is this a foreboding for the end of the whole humanity? The fever can affect any one, even me, while I am writing this article, and anybody else, even the one from the ditches of privation or the palaces of wealth!

The matter for great distress is that no medicine is quite effective toward these viruses. The only suggestion that doctors make is, to take rest.

What are the reasons for it? Who is responsible for it? Some newspapers and the leaders of the opposition blame the government for not taking any sufficient steps for stopping the spread of the viruses. But I don't think so. Is the government responsible for providing free medicines in the government hospitals and health centers? Is the government responsible for not carrying out sufficient studies to understand the causes and cures for the virus?

Well, why do everyone expect answers for such stupid questions!

(I am not bluffing the American model "communism" as commented by Noam Chomsky in his "Responsibility of the Intellectuals"( I forgot the page number), in which he substantiates how the odd voices of the society is calmed and silenced through the labeling of an individual, if that one questions the government, as a communist, one of the most despicable terms in the US, and confining the individual into the dark dungeon of alienation. As a matter of fact, these all are the duties of the government according to the Indian constitution.)

Being a citizen of this state, it is my duty to protect the state and the government from such verbal attacks. So I hereby declare that I am going to inscribe the real cause for the fever. It is as follows:

Error!. Server not functioning (or) answer not available!.

More we grow, more vulnerable we became. Well thats a fact. Human beings were able to survive, because they were able to survive germs. Now the same medicines which fight them became useless because the same bacterias (whatever u call it germs or bacteria) get immune to them. Therefore a new version of disease gets a life and strikes. We have exploited ourselves to such extent that it is quite natural that we face its consequences.

And government, its nothing but a reflection of our society. If society is lethargic, then government will be lethargic.

Ancient Promises is Jaishree Misra's debut book with a fresh narrative voice in comparison with the other novelists of her time.
An unforgettable story, told in first person narrative, Ancient Promises combines in its narrative strategy, romance, myth and social criticism. Jane Austen succeeded in bringing irony in her novels, through interesting and poignant observations, which were most often witty as well. Taking the same line of novel-writing strategy, Jaishree Misra gives opportunity for readers to enjoy the book in multiple perspectives than just a single faceted love story.
Of course, Janu, the protagonist is the narrator and this is her story. However, this is also the story of Kerala and its marriage customs. Many irrational and unjust customs still exist in this southern land situated in India's south. Many European cultures have established trade relations with Kerala, even before the time of the British. But in the long run, it can also be observed that the nature …

DELHI IS NOT FAR BY RUSKIN BOND: A Love Story without Losses

“…and I know that this one lifetime, however long, cannot satisfy my heart” (111).
__ Ruskin Bond
The Commentator says; When it’s about love, some believe it’s natural to make mistakes. The truth is ‘mistakes’ and ‘love’ do not coexist. Mistakes are not love. Love is not a mistake. Before the book review, let me recount to you a love story flew by my life a couple of months back. As some of you know, I love blogging. As some others of you are well aware, more than blogging, I love the experience of writing. Blog or my other publishing ventures, this love for writing is at the core of it all. A couple of months before, I had thought of writing a review of the book Delhi is Not Far by Ruskin Bond, author of The Lamp is Lit. Opening a word document, I wrote the title of the book with the author’s name as a ‘clever’ appendage. Then I kept it to gather some inspiration and relevance. Then I forgot. To be more precise, I pushed the priority to love to another rather unimportant spot and, for…

Mithun Vadakkedathu signed out. But he did not forget to mark the mail he just read as spam. He had been signing up in job sites and this has become his day job.
The previous week he had gone to the Parassinikadavu temple and paid for Vellaattam, the worship dance for pleasing Muthappan, the deity of Parassinikkadavu temple, the ancient God of the commoner.
He groped in his wallet which had holes inside and threads were coming off from its bottom. The outer layer of rexine was removed from many places by time.
Mithun took out three pieces of paper, three tickets: one red, one grey, one pale white in colour. He murmured; “O God, all my prayers, all the Vellaattam I paid for are gone without purpose. I must have done something terrible that I still do not know myself. Perhap…
