Hi folks, I am a humble inhabitant of mother earth,
thanking everything and everyone for permitting me to visit
this planet , the duration of which though uncertain and
intriguing , had so far been fairly satisfactory ( I mean , to
me ) and enjoyable .
I take interest in almost everything that I come across-
Literature, Arts, Music and painting , Science , Socio
political milieu around me etc. In fact it is this interest
which carries me forwards.
I do not think I have done anything for the society at large .
But I also think in a state like Kerala ( in India ) where I
live, where you will not be heard or appreciated without
political overtones , it is one of the worst places to live (
to appreciate which one has to move out of Kerala or better,
out of India) .
Well, I have lived nearly 35 years of a medical manís life,
with my specialization being chasing images , not truth. Yes,
I have been a Diagnostic Radiologist at least from 1978 and
continues to be so. I had to occupy a lot of chairs clinical
as well as administrative in this long route . The 6 years in
a semi independent seat at KHRWS Imageolgy Centre at Calicut
Medical college ( 1997 to 2003) , 2 years in HNS of UK ( 2004
to 2006) and 18 months as Principal, Calicut Medical College (
8/2006 to 12/2007) were wonderful and satisfying spells . The
last 5 months of my Govt. service at Thiruvananthapuram as
Director of Medical Education of Kerala state also had been
quite wonderful, not because I was instrumental in suggesting
any change in medical education ( I could not ) , but living
in a great city was a great experience .
My greatest city of adoration is London which I have explored
at least 50 times . In a scale of 100, If I will give 50 %
marks to Delhi, Calcutta and Chennai , I can give only a just
pass mark of 40 % to my own home town which is calicut (
kozhikode) . A city breathes through its cultural lungs , not
through the concrete jungles or its commercial spots .
The media and politicians of my state are mediocre . And we ,
keralites are proud of promoting mediocrity. If anyone tries
to excel, we collectively put him down. We have great
connoisseurs of performing arts, but substandard film industry
and deteriorating literary talents. We donít love animals ,
plants, nature or for that matter humans too. I am also a
live member of this dehumanized ( demonized ) , commercial,
unloving sect commonly and widely called MALYALI as we were
believed to be speaking a language called MALAYALAM as mother
tongue, one of the dying languages which is unlikely to
survive this century .
And a bit of general knowledge Ė the permanent abode of
MALAYALIS , called KERALA(M) constitutes hardly 1% of INDIA,s
land mass , 3 % of INDIA,s population and every 5th
MALAYALI lives out of Kerala some where in this planet .
This site just is a repository to keep certain things together
so that I donít lose it. But believe me , I am available for
any sort of help within Kerala for any one , especially small
things which are very difficult to find in Kerala like
