I agree very much with the commentator Mr. Benny NJ.
The authors should not be concerned about the readers comment but rather
be concerned about the substance of the comment. Readers and commentators are different type.
1.Some comment directly
good or bad
4.Some respond elaborately
5.Some are arrogant and ruthless
In New York Times or CNN, as Mr. Benny said, the participation
of the readers and their comments are very much. It was interesting to read thousands of
comments written by North Indians and Americans on the articles appeared in CNN
pertained to Indian Diplomat Devayani and the diplomatic standoff between India
and US. I was a participant in it and
was interesting to see some eye opening comment and responses I got. As per my observation Vidhaadharan is a very
strong reader and uses all approaches I mentioned above to provoke the writer
and many times bring out the weakness and strength of the writer. The weakness of most of the malayalee writers
is that most of them are reactive and can take only good comments which praises
them. In order to be perfected in
writing, the authors should be tested by good commentators like Vidhyaadharan
or anyone for that reason. Many times I
go and read the articles when I see a comment by Vidyadharan. Even I enjoyed the last comment by
Vidhyaadharan how he turned around things and made it humorous when he was
called a bastard by his friend. His comments
are backed up by quotes and citation of poems which is relevant to the
topic. Keep writing writers and keep

benny kurian, new jersey2014-01-12 05:25:45 Newsകേഴുക പ്രിയനാടേ!!!... this is all I can say about this waste of time!...
why are we worried and scared of comments by readers?!.. go to New York Times
online (www.nytimes.com) and see the participation of readers on each and every article... instead of appreciating and encouraging
readers participation making fun of sincere and good comments by readers.. What are we
going to gain by knowing the identity of the person who write letters to
bad and not appreciable to the free flow of opinions. Please, encourage and invite all your friends to emalayalee, let them read your
creations and encourage them to comment. Let our people read
emalayalee. Let the free flow of opinions flood through the pages of
emalayalee. Don't be scared of opinions or criticisms. Ours is a free
society. Let us don't shut the mouth of readers. We are a civilized
society. Mr. Vidhyadharan, you are doing a wonderful job. I enjoy
your comments especially the poem quotes. We need someone like you to
say "The king is naked"!.. and that your grandfather owned not an
elephant but a "kuzhiyana"- കുഴിയാന (ബഷീർ)!!!..
bijuny2014-01-12 03:28:17 NewsThis from an interview given by Devayani after reaching India: ""I
wonder if I will be able to ever reunite with my family, my husband, my
little kids. I miss them," Khobragade told The Sunday Express.
"What if my children choose to study and work in the US? What if I can
never return to the US, which I cannot now. Does it mean we will never
be able to live together as a family again?" she said.
Are these the words of an Indian Diplomat? Whats the meaning of a Diplomat any more? If this lady's plan eventually was to to immigrate to USA, what respect we and the host country can give to this lady ( as DIPLOMAT ), and the country she represents ( INDIA ). Where will our PROUD motherland reach when all the IFS people posted in plum North American and European countries eventually use tricks ( knowingly or unknowingly ) toemigrate to those countries? Shame on our system which allowed these things happen. Shame on our sycophant leaders(especially those Malayali 'leaders' who support the master class for any dirty stuff. THANKS to America and distric attorney for doing a great job on our behalf of weeding out bad elements on all of our behalf who live in USA who wants PROFESSIONAL Diplomats in the consulate to represent India and for expatriates service.
Ninan Mathullah2014-01-11 21:34:03 NewsWe must remember the story of Sanku and Manikyan, we learned in school text books in the 1960s. Both were friends. One day while being together, suddenly a Bear came to them. Sanku the older and stronger immediately climbed up a tree and escaped. Manikyan was small and weak and not capable of climbing tree. He knew that Bear will not eat dead animals. So he lay flat as if dead holding the breath,. The story goes that Bear came and smelled him from top to bottom, and thinking dead walked away. After the Bear left, Sanku came down and they started walking together. Sanku asked, "What was it that I saw the Bear talking in your ear?" Manikyan replied, " Bear told me not to trust a friend who will not help yopu in danger." Sanku walked away in shame. It is better to remember who helped us in our development so far after independence to establish industries, and who were our friends in the different wars we fought. Besides, Bible advise not to desire the tasty food of somebody jealous of you as you will end up throwing it up as his heart is against you.

George Parnel2014-01-11 09:07:15 NewsI have been following the broom party (AAP) closely lately. My inner voice is telling me that a revolution is taking place in India and AAP will win big. Arvind Kejriwal is a dynamic leader. People are joining the party in huge numbers. The target is to get 10 million by January 26. That is close to 10% of the population. It is projected based on polls that AAP will win 40% of the vote in all major cities. This is without any party office in most states. With Modi as PM, you may see disintegration of India like what happened in Soviet Union. Pleople are fed up with the traditional parites. If AAP doesn't make it, our Antony will be the best for India as Prime Minister. Please start watching Aam Aadmi Party (common man party) closely and be a witness to a revolution in the making.
George Parnel2014-01-11 08:43:53 NewsSometime ago, when I noticed our community leaders offering flowers and soliciting support for Devyani, I had cautioned through this forum to stay out of this case and let it play out on its own merit. Now you see the mess one lady created: Two extremely friendly nations became so far apart. Devyani could have made a back pay to the maid when the maid complained and sent her home cancelling the employment contract. That way she would have been in compliance with the contract and the issue would have been solved. Well, everybody knows the rest of the story. How sad.
