On 16th September 2008, it was the ceremony of day of giving Rice to our Lkashmi Krishna call as Ammalu, the daughter of my brother, held at Attukal Temple, Thiruvananthapuram. It is an ever green memory in all our hearts.


What is that crack on the face?
A burrow?
Rather a sneaky trench.
You call it a smile?!
I know
That is amiability.
But why don’t your eyes keep quiet?
Discipline them
Or they get out of control
Why not tear them out?
Throw them on the rocks
So that they would never sprout
They are to die with this century.

- Nanditha didn’t name this poem.

Nanditha-the princess of mirage

” My Mask too fine and serene,
My smile ugly, words worthless
The mask is torn to pieces
Still I wear a self conscious laugh….”

These lines are still reverberating in my ears. I know that my words are not enough powerful to write about Nandhitha. Her serene soul thirsted for something that she had missed in her journey of life. She left the world because she never wanted to wear the mask. The lines in the poems were fresh and pure as it was not written for the public. The dreams, hopes and the feeling of loss melted into her pen and something still remains strange. She was adored by her parents her brother and the people around her but the intensity of love was beyond everything, that brutally taken away her mind. I was surprised by these poems and more by the poet. She might have been truthful to her life but she got married. Without doubt Nanditha and her poems will be remembered in the hearts of all those who values their lives.

Nanditha was born in 1969 May 12th at Vayanadu district Kerala. She had been a teacher in Vayanadu Muttil Muslim Orphanage Arts and Science College. In 1999 January 17th she committed suicide.

Brain gain! Fewer IITians going abroad!

Brain gain! Fewer IITians going abroad!

George Iype | May 17, 2005

'Brain drain represents a $2 billion annual loss to India' -- The United Nations Human Development Report, 2000.

But the times have changed. In the last five years, there has been a drastic decline in the number of Indian students leaving the country for higher studies and better paying jobs abroad.

Prestigious engineering schools such as the Indian Institutes of Technology are these days reporting a 'disinterest' amongst students to go abroad because of better emerging opportunities within the country.

Says V Kalyanaraman, Dean of the Centre for Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras: "The number of graduate students from IIT going abroad for further studies or jobs has drastically decreased."

Former President of India A P J Abdul Kalam: A leader should know how to Manage Failure

Could you give an example, from your own experience, of how leaders should manage failure?

Kalam: Let me tell you about my experience. In 1973 I became the project director of India's satellite launch vehicle program, commonly called the SLV-3. Our goal was to put India's "Rohini" satellite into orbit by 1980. I was given funds and human resources - but was told clearly that by 1980 we had to launch the satellite into space. Thousands of people worked together in scientific and technical teams towards that goal.
By 1979 - I think the month was August - we thought we were ready. As the project director, I went to the control center for the launch. At four minutes before the satellite launch, the computer began to go through the checklist of items that needed to be checked. One minute later, the computer program put the launch on hold; the display showed that some control components were not in order.

Happy Vishu

Wish You a Happy Malayama New Year!
