KERALA ON A SLOW DEATH OR SUICIDE PATH
• Kerala, the southern Indian State, is noted with 100 per cent literacy, high
level news paper reading, television watching and IT penetration, affluent
lifestyle, personal hygiene, neat and fashionable dressing and high level
health consciousness. But it stands top in the poor and inefficient waste
management so as to have a series of mounting garbage in almost all cities
and villages, in polluting its lakes, rivers, streams, ponds and wells so as to
spread contagious diseases both during rainy seasons and hot summer
• For developing cities, shopping malls, housing complexes, tourist resorts,
amusement parks, religious centers, almost all important fertile paddy and
vegetable fields and wet lands in Kerala have been destroyed. In spite of
frequent rains for over six months and availability of several lakes, rivers
and streams, Kerala is facing acute shortage of pure drinking water and
everybody is paying a very high price for even contaminated drinking water.
The entire Kerala is on a slow and steady path of death or suicide also for
consuming poisonous food and drinks contaminated with over-dosage
pesticides and hormones, preservatives besides highly adulterated cooking
oil, curry or masala powders and artificially taste-adding deadly chemicals.
RELIGIONS AND POLITICAL PARTIES
• Frequent religious pilgrimage and celebrations and political rallies and agitations
conducted in Kerala result in adding garbage and polluting the streets, rivers,
lakes and narrow payments. After the Sabrimala Hindu Pilgrimage, Maramon
Christian Convention and Cherukolpuza Hindu convention, for the pollution of
the Pamapa and Manimala Rivers, deadly and contagious diseases spread over
one third part of Kerala. Muslims too have their role. After every major
convention of political parties, cities in Kerala turned into garbage boxes. Every
election in Kerala makes the nook and corner of Kerala dirty and ugly.
• In polluting the environment and upsetting the ecology, Hindus, Muslims and
Christians with their religious functions competing each other. In adding dirt and
filth and polluting water, major political parties like the Indian National Congress,
Communist Parties, Muslims League, Kerala Congress and etc. have played a
• Recently, Communist and Left Parties in Kerala launched a mass agitation against
‘Solar Scam’ bringing several thousand party workers to Trivandrum, the state
capital. Within two days, they converted the capital city as a centre of filth,
garbage and pollution, mainly the human waste. Had they not been suspended
the agitation, thousands of people in Trivndrum would have been wiped out
with deadly contagious diseases like cholera, dysentery, fever, jaundice , chicken
guinea, and etc. The paradox is that in the name of 200 million rupee solar
scam, the agitating political parties, the ruling political parties and the Kerala
Government, besides the general public have spent more than 1000 million
WEALTH AND POSH HOUSES OF GODS
• In Kerala, every sect or cult of Islam, Hinduism and Christianity is eager to raise
money and build posh houses for its God, spending millions or billions. In Kerala,
all major political parties like Marxist Party, CPI, Congress, Muslim League and
Kerala Congress have no problem in raising billions either for their political rallies
or constructing party offices and study or research centers.
• Every Religion or political party is competing each other in mobilizing hundred
thousands people for their celebrations, conventions and rallies and also in
polluting streets, rivers, beaches or even paddy fields without any concern for
the damages that they are committed to the environment and the normal life of
the common people. Recently, the Left Democratic Front(LDF) proves that it is
capable of destroying any city in Kerala with their solar scam agitation.
• Multi- millionaires have conquered Kerala with their Mega Malls, Posh Resorts,
super-speciality hospitals, amusement parks and mega residential flats tapping
up to 50% of the electricity and drinking water, causing ecological damages and
keeping the entire city without water or electricity for their unimaginable power
over the government machinery, religions, political parties and media. Ordinary
or common people are always their victims. In Kerala anybody can do any harm
to the Nature or ecology and upset the life and means of livelihood of the
common people without making any compensation for the prevailing high level
corruptions and inefficiency. As a result, life of over 85% people in Kerala is
THEIR WELATH AND THE PEOPLE’S WELFARE
• The wealth and money accumulated or under the disposal of
Islam, Christianity, Hinduism and Marxist Party (CPM), Communist
Party of India (CPI), Indian National Congress, Muslim League and
Kerala Congress in Kerala are in terms of several billions, capable
of providing the best waste management, pure and clean drinking
water and the best education and health care system for the
• By using a small fraction of the precious gold and stones under the
disposal of Sri Padbhanabha Temple, Trivandrum City can be
provided with the world class water purification system, waste
management and infrastructure. Just like the old ghosts, religions
and political parties in Kerala have been burying down their
wealth and deny quality life to the people of Kerala.
• The wealth under their disposal really belongs to the people for
the public welfare and collective good. Instead, they are taxing the
people and adding their miseries. How can they ensure Heaven or
Paradise before or after death for their crimes against the
METRO CITIES AND WORLD-CLASS
• Without any vision or long term strategy, Kerala has been developing
metro-cities, high ways and world class shopping malls, convention
centers and hotels and resorts, for the mediocre and corrupt political
leaderships and government officials coupled with indifferent religious
leaders, academics or intellectuals and media or channel people.
• Nobody is there in Kerala to set the priorities by taking into account the
long term interest of the people. Now Kerala boasts of having the
newspapers with highest circulation, highly watched TV channels, biggest
jewelry or sari shops and the most modern shopping malls or religious
retreat centers and wealthiest ‘god- men or women’.
• Recently, the EMKE Group set up the biggest shopping mall in India, the
Lulu Shopping and Entertainment Mall in the already congested
Ernakulum City creating a lot of traffic problem besides forcing several
other business concerns perish not only in Ernakulum but also in other
• Without ensuring pure drinking water, waste management, power supply,
infrastructure development and quality education, it is foolish and
suicidal for Kerala to go for metro cities and world class shopping malls.
COMPENSATE THE COMMON PEOPLE AND THE LAND
• No religion- temple, church or mosque or political party or
billionaire or shopping mall is above the land and the people. The
land and the people have the right to get the compensation for
every damage that they have incurred, done by the religions,
political parties or developmental programs. Every thing must be in
tune with the long term interest of the survival or growth of the
land and the people, for the God is there not in the Heaven but
within the land and the people.
• Nobody has any right to deny the means of livelihood or to
contaminate rivers or waters or streets in the name of any God or
ideology. Hindus, Muslims, Christians and the leaders or workers of
the political parties like the Marxist or Communist Party, Congress,
Muslim League, Kerala Congress, BJP, or the multi-millionaire
businessmen are to be made answerable or accountable for every
damage that they are made to the people or environment with
provision for compensation. It is time for enacting such a Social
Accountable Act and implementing it for safeguarding the interest
of the citizens and the land or environment.
IMMEDIATE AGENDA FOR ACTION
• 1. Travancore Devsom Board is the agency in dealing with millions of the
Sabarimala Pilgrims who are responsible for polluting or contaminating
the Pampa River besides the Manimala River at Erumely; the Christians for
contaminating the river Pampa for the Maramon convention; the Hindus
and the Christians in polluting the Periyar either at Aluva or Malayatoor
.Various warring Muslim groups or sects, including the Sunnies and the
Mujahids, Jamayyete Islami and etc conduct conventions and rallies.
These agencies must set up mega sewerage treatment plants , solar
energy plants and water purification plants to protect the environments at
least in these places.
• 2. All major political parties in Kerala must be allotted at least one
Municipal or Corporation area with regard to waste management, water
purification and solar energy. The local administration must levy
substantial fees from Political Parties for Conducting Rallies and
Conventions at the rate of Rs 100 per person for a day and thereby using
the public utilities and damaging the environment or infrastructure.
• 3. Every temple, church or mosque and religious organization should have
the responsibility in water conservation and purification, waste
management and solar energy utilization within its jurisdiction.
IMMEDIATE AGENDA FOR ACTION
• 4. Business enterprises like the Lulu Mall, the Veegaland and other big
public or private enterprises must produce solar energy and conserve and
purify water for their own requirements, besides developing infrastructure
from their own account.
• 5. Mega Projects under Public-Private Participation in Solar Energy, Water
Purification, Waste Management and Infrastructure Development must be
launched making use of international funding, expertise and technology of
the European Union and other agencies.
• 6. The Government of Kerala must setup the Forest, River and
Environment Protection Authorities with judicial and executing powers in
almost all important parts of Kerala.
• 7. School curriculums must incorporate lessons on Solar Energy, Water
Purification, Waste Management and Environment Protection, including
land, water and forest protection. Mass Awareness Campaign must be
launched for the interest of the General Public.
MAKE KERALA GOD’S OWN PARADISE
• People in Kerala every year spend billions for religious
functions, including pilgrimage, political parties and
their rallies, drinking spirit or liquor and putting
cosmetics. If they spend just 10 per cent of these
expenses for water conservation and purification,
waste management and generating solar energy
besides infrastructure development, Kerala would
have been turned ‘God’s Own Paradise’ in stead of
Devil’s Own Hell created by the Hindus, Muslims and
Christians besides the left and the right political
parties, medias and channels and the corrupt and
inefficient rulers and bureaucrats. The people of
Kerala are entitled to live in the God’s Own Paradise.
