Ninan Mathullah2014-01-14 09:26:23 NewsIt is true that the judgement was favorable to the current office bearers. This doen't mean that their argument is just and morally and ethically correct. There can be many variables involved in the decision the judge make. Sometimes it is necessary to go on appeal to get justice. The Malayalee Community in Houston know who is right here. The best evidence is the number of people participated in the Christmas-New Year programe conducted by the current office berers. Eye witness report that including office berers' families around thirty people were there. The Chief guest invited from New York had to ask whether she was invited to speak to these empty chairs. This must be a lesson to future office berers that there will be consequence if laws are broken or moral and ethical standards not followed. It is true that 'Sathyamevajayathe'. Let us wait for the divine justice that will be played out in due course.

Ninan Mathullah2014-01-14 08:20:46 NewsWhen this letter states that false propaganda doesn’t deserve comment, this letter itself is the best example of that propaganda.
This same President writing this letter admitted in the General body on December 7th, attended by sixty-four people that the appointment of Election Commissioner by the Board was a mistake, and expressed sorry for it. He admitted that he didn’t know the Bylaw required so as he was thinking of the old Bylaw. Now, is it to convince the people in Houston or outside Houston that this propaganda? People in Houston will not believe it as the community is not cooperating with these office bearers. The best example for this is the Christmas-New Year program organized by these office bearers. Eye witness reported that around thirty people attended the program including office bearers and their family. The guest from New York asked the empty chair weather it was to talk to these empty chairs that I was invited.
About the claim that the General Body on December 7th approved the appointment of the Election Commission by the Board, here is an eye witness report of what happened in that General Body.
Eye Witness Report of Malayale Association of Greater Houston General Body Meeting on December 07, 2013.
The meeting was called to discuss the proposed Bylaw amendment. After presentation of report and discussion of Bylaw amendment, the floor was open for general discussion. Several members questioned the Bylaw violation in appointing the three Election Commissioners, and one of them as Chief Election Commissioner. President Kennedy made a statement that it was a mistake on the part of the Executive Board to appoint the Election Commissioners, and he expressed sorry for it. Several members asked that new Election Commissioners need to be elected from the floor, and from the response from the floor it looked like most of the members wanted a new team elected from the floor. A small group supported allowing the Board appointed team to continue. This request caused open discussion among the members, and the chairman couldn’t control the meeting, and nobody could hear anything, and people were moving around and talking loud to make them heard. In this pandemonium, a small group clapped their hand, and the chairman announced that the General Body unanimously approved the Board approve Commissioners to continue. There was visible unrest in the room, and at this point the chairman Mr. Kennedy announced that the meeting is dispersed. The minutes of the meeting was not read in the meeting. After this meeting, no General Body meeting called to ratify General Body meeting minutes.
The reason we had to approach the court was the naked violation of the Bylaw and violation of common moral and ethical principles in this General Body. The right thing for the Election Commission to do was to resign considering the opposition to them in the General Body.
Due to space limitation we do no address the rest of the propaganda here. If you have friends in Houston please talk to them. We will respond to the rest of the claims in appropriate ways.
It is true that we didn’t get a favorable judgment from the court. There can be many variables involved in that outcome. Sometimes we do not get justice from the court the first time; on appeal only justice will be served. Sometimes the judges may not be receptive to the arguments as they are also human beings. We succeeded in letting the public know of the Bylaw violations and moral and ethical violations. This will be a lesson for future office bearers to think twice before breaking laws.

Dr V P Gopinathan2014-01-14 03:55:24 News I appreciate ur efforts in raising awareness on health issues.Keep it up.
A beautifully written
article that touches the heart. . We all have the same feelings when we visit
our old ancestral house in Kerala and loving memories return. I wrote about the day we closed the doors of
our 250 year old ancestral house for the last time after the death of my mother
and it is in my Facebook time line ‘ Thoughts about a mother on Mother’s day.’. Death
ends a life, but not the relationship. I wish you wrote it in English also
so that I could read it to our children.
With warm regards, Roy uncle. Roy P. Thomas, MD
