More specifically, it was the handiwork of Malayala Manorama to bring down chief minister K Karunakaran of INC, as part of the factional fight within INC. For months Malayalam print media, taking the lead from Manorama, splashed made up bullshit on their front pages - about the ISRO guys’ “espionage activities” and their liaisons with sexy foreign agents. Their lives were trashed just to settle an intra-party factional feud.

This cute little set of cartoons by @pencilashan perfectly captures the sense of togetherness that is binding Kerala - and honours all the good people from everywhere who are helping us overcome this crisis and #RebuildKerala ❤️ + “Our own Navy!”

Really, Kerala is indebted to our fishermen; heroes who literally came out of the sea like the mythical Poseidon’s soldiers and saved the day ❤️

I’m a debt-averse person in general. The kind who uses a credit card like a debit card; who tries not to take on mortgages or in the worst case close them as fast as possible.
But there is one debt that I will continue to carry forever, no matter how much ever I pay it back. That is the debt of gratitude to this beautiful, tiny, wet, green strip of land called Kerala.
I am what I am because of the goodness that this land and it’s people; and its libraries, schools, colleges and newspapers have infused in me.

Went the rounds today with our ward councillor to distribute food kits to flood affected families (those who’ve returned home bec the water has receded), in a mostly working class neighbourhood. After handing out the kits in a few homes we came to a middle class+ looking house+ +and the volunteers were a little hesitant thinking “this house kinda looks rich, will they be offended if we offer a food kit?”. So we checked with the ward councillor who said yes they’re affected as well, they need to be given a package like everyone else.

There are many charities and organisations collecting funds for #KeralaFloodRelief - thanks to everybody who organised / donated, you're all awesome!

I personally donated to @CMOKerala 's Disaster Relief Fund (CMDRF).

Why did I choose CMDRF? Kerala CMDRF is operated by the Finance Secretary GoK, through the CMDRF bank account in SBI Trivandrum.

Does this mean that this IAS officer can operate this on his whims?


This financial authority is delegated to officers in each tier of CMDRF.

Beef thread. Sanghis look away.
🚨 ⚠️ In all these years of buying beef in Kerala, I never had any idea what cut of the meat I was buying. Bec, you basically ask for “chetta, beef” and the only “spec” you have is “medium or small pieces”. And the guy hands over a kg of the meat which you then turn into ulathiyathu

But that's not a patch on how Arnab looked Gorbachev in his eyes and said, "Tear down this wall, Mister Gorbachev!"
#ArnabDidIt + or when #ArnabDidIt against QPR at 93:20 to win the Premier League for ManCity in 2012 and the commentator went "ArnabGooooooooooo!"
