Radio jockeys

You have ever been to UAE.
Then you are familiar with Malayalam radio channels who

encourage you to make SMS by asking questions like what is the colour of milk,who is the prime minister of India etc.
Poor grocery employees, cafeteria staffs and drivers respond to them.losing their hard earned money.
It is very much nauseating to hear some of the radio jockeys speak as if they do not know Malayalam and they are here doing a favor to you by speaking in Malayalam !
See I am not against radio jockeys they do fantastic job like kuresi saab of vividh bharathi doing but what these people are doing is not acceptable.
And there is another side to this story, some radio channels are doing great job by collecting money for people who are in some dire situations. They deserve all kudos for this type of activities.
What I cannot digest is why these people use English language when it is a malyalam channel and 90 % of listeners are comfortable only in Malayalam.
If they cannot perform the program completely in Malayalam why don’t they leave this Malayalam channel and join BBC ?

Achumamman and Pinaryi

I am not a communist but I respect achumaman.
May be he got his own charisma to attract people like me who is neutral in political stand.
Some how I do not agree with pinarai and his speech, I wonder how a person who cannot make public speech eloquently possess a huge followers for his group(I know there is no group in LDF government of Kerala) may be he got some other charisma to attract people who do not think like me !.
That is the world or it is the nature of human being.
You do not think like me and I cannot think like you. I cannot compel you to think like me and vice a versa.


Two days back I have seen vellappilly nadesan making some humorous statement in asianet. tv.(so far I am concerned he only makes humorous statement) “I am ready to leave SNDP temples to government !”
I wonder who gave permission to talk on behalf of ezhava community of kerala (agreed SNDP is not the sole property of ezhavas, but some how it represents ezhava community,don’t ask me how,it is a common label,ie SNDP=EZHAVA,THIYYA)
God knows when he will stop such statements and leave his position as president of SNDP to some intelligent member of community who can at least talk decently….
