You know what? I was an active KSU (Kerala Students Union) activist when I did my graduation. Though, you can take their count without much effort in your 10 fingers 😛 !!! My college was really a red-fort, both in color and the political inclination. But the activities of left student wing wasn’t satisfactory from a leftist viewpoint. They were just a ‘conglomoration’ of goons to protect their personal interests/egos. It was in my 6th semester that there was first real challenge against the monopoly of left student wing, that we won about 5-6 association seats and one general seat in the elections, though we lost in majority of seats we contested.

After my Btech, there was a time when I sat idle for about one year (!!!), I got into the company of Jayasankar (who is now at one of the gulf countries, “studying the problems faced by the working class in gulf countries” 😛 ) who gave me the leftist fundaes. Then I TRIED to read the “Communist Manifesto” but had to leave it incomplete because of the tough language used in it. Thanks to Jayasankar again, he gave the a copy of the translation of Communist Manifesto and other literature on left philosophy.

Time passed and slowly I was metamorphizing into a leftist. It was last year when I was working at an engineering college in Trivandrum, I met Sujay who is a dentist by profession whom I know from my Btech days and a communist congenitally! The transformation was complete with talks with Dr. Sujay. I declared it in Orkut and transferred the ownership of the KSU community created by me back in the ‘right days’ to Anto.

So, what provoked me to write this post. Last few days, I am reading this on Mathrubhumi feeds (these days they are the only source to know about the happenings in Kerala), about the KSU strike on the 7th standard textbook, though there wasn’t anywhere mentioned “what was there on those text-books”.

Today I saw this post by Rafiq kizhattur, and felt sympathy for the KSU. I would say this even if I were in KSU. Bad KSU, this is just show off, you people have shown your casteist-racist mentality wide open to world. This chapter describes the scene where the son of an inter-religious parents taking admission
in a school.

Here is a not-so-good translation of the controversial part in the 7th standard textbook,

“മതമില്ലാത്ത ജീവന്‍” – “Religion-less Jeevan”

The headmaster started filling the application form after the parents came with their son for the admission.

“What is your name, dear?”

“Jeevan” (Jeevan/ജീവന്‍ means life in Malayalam)

“Cute name… and your dad’s name?”

“Anvar Rasheed”

“Mom’s name?”

“Lakshmi Devi”

Headmaster lifted his face and asked the parents:

“What should I fill in the column for religion?”

“Nothing. Just add nil

“Caste?”

“That too not required”

Headmaster leaned back to his chair and asked in a serious tone:

“What if he feels that he needs a religion when he grows up?”

“Let him choose the religion of his taste at that time”

—The End—

Why the hell is that people are so arrogant about such a chapter giving a good message. The common public should reply to this arrogance and prove that Kerala society is not casteist/racist as the KSU leaders are thinking. This kind of arrogance was shown to the first Communist government in Kerala when they brought revolutionary changes to Kerala, which helped the common man and his successors to achieve social and educational equality. Founding leader of KSU and the present Defense Minister of India, A K Antony, who actively took part in the vimochana samaram against the then Communist regime, now repents that the his decision to strike against the government was wrong.

My advise to KSU leaders, take any of the following drugs and this may help you to solve the crisis you are facing,

  1. Mebendazole
  2. Piperazine
  3. Albendazole

I suggest all of you leaders to take the drugs at the same time, else it will lead to drug-resistant ‘invaders’ :-p .

[Today we have the not-so-famous Malayalam blogger, njaan (ഞാന്‍) in our post. Welcome njaan (ഞാന്‍) to our blog]

ഞാന്‍: (Looking at the readers and waving his hand) Thank you pR@tz.

pR@tz: So tell me njaan, how is life? How is your girl-friends?
ഞാന്‍: സുഖമായിട്ടിരിക്കുന്നു സഹോദരാ.കാമുകിമാരുടെ ശല്യം തല്‍ക്കാലം ഇല്ല. pR@tz-ന് എന്തുണ്ട് വിശേഷം. എന്നെ കുറെ തെറി കേള്‍പ്പിച്ച് കഴിഞ്ഞപ്പോള്‍ എന്തൊ ഒരു സുഖം തോന്നുന്നു, അല്ലേ?

pR@tz: (with his typical grin)…he! he! he! … yeah!… feeling really good. Expect more soon. Where were you all these days?
ഞാന്‍: ഞാനിവിടൊക്കെ തന്നെ ഉണ്ടായിരുന്നു. ഇപ്പോ പഴയ പോലെയല്ല. സമയം ഒട്ടുമില്ല. എന്റെ ഗൈഡ് ആണെങ്കില്‍ എന്നെ നിലം തൊടീക്കുന്നില്ല.

pR@tz: yeah! njaan, I can understand, even I am doing my research and my guide too is strict. Sigh! By the way, last few weeks at Malayalam blogosphere, we had nice fights between pro-protest group and anti-protest group.
ഞാന്‍: എന്തിനാ മോനേ ഞങ്ങള്‍ എന്ന് പറയുന്നേ. മോന്‍ സ്വയമല്ലേ വഴീ കൂടെ നടന്ന് പോയ പട്ടീടെ വായേ കയ്യിട്ട് കടി വാങ്ങിയേ. വല്ല കാര്യമുണ്ടായിരുന്നോ? അല്ലേലും നിനക്ക് പെണ്‍പിള്ളേര് എന്ന് പറയുന്നത് പണ്ടേ ഒരു വീക്ക്‍നെസ്സ് ആണ്.

pR@tz: (in a serious tone) Well, I still think whatever I did is right. I would have done the same even if it was someone else. I did what I felt right and will be doing the same in future.
ഞാന്‍: അതേ. right, നീ പണ്ട് കോപ്പിറൈറ്റുകളെ എതിര്‍ത്ത് സംസാരിച്ചിട്ടില്ലേ. എന്നിട്ടിപ്പോ എന്ത് പറ്റി?

pR@tz: Every creator has a right over his creation, I respect that right. Copyright infringement cause problems (to many) only when there is a materialistic value attached to it. Personally, I am not interested in any materialistic benefit, but I need a credit for my creation and that is the reason I am publishing it by cc-attribution-ShareAlike. Both of us are researchers, and we know how difficult it is to get a journal paper; I hate copyrights for that reason too, knowledge is something which should not be locked like that. I am ready to give the authors credit for the excellent work they did and the publishing journal. But, why the copyrights?
ഞാന്‍: ശരിയാണ്. ജേണല്‍ പേപ്പറുകള്‍ കിട്ടുവാന്‍ ഞാനും കുറേയേറെ കഷ്ടപ്പെടാറുണ്ട്. ഒരു പക്ഷെ, ആ പേപ്പര്‍ പബ്ലിഷ് ചെയ്യുവാന്‍ വേണ്ടി വരുന്ന ചിലവുകള്‍ നികത്തുവാന്‍ ആയിരിക്കും ജേണലുകള്‍ക്ക് പണം ഈടാക്കുന്നതും അവയ്ക്ക് കോപ്പിറൈറ്റുകള്‍ ഉള്ളതും.

pR@tz: You said it. Everything in this world has a value. That is not a right thing according to me and should be changed. Man needs food, water, air, a place to sleep and dress to wear – the basic needs, additionally he will require education, entertainment (not luxurious) to live like a human. In return he should contribute in the best way to the society. In this particular, ‘ideal society’, nothing will have a monetary value, everyone will be free to think, free to learn, free to innovate…..man will live in a kind of equilibrium with nature – if something comes in, same happens in return too… (gazing at infinity)
ഞാന്‍: സമ്മതിക്കുന്നു. പക്ഷെ അത്തരമൊരു സമൂഹം നിലവില്‍ വരുമെന്ന് തോന്നുന്നുണ്ടോ? മനുഷ്യന്റെ അത്യാഗ്രഹം അതിനൊരു തടസ്സമല്ലേ? വിവരമില്ലായ്മയും pR@tz-ന്റെ ഈ സ്വപ്നത്തിന് വിഘാതമാകും.

pR@tz: “I am not a liberator, liberators do not exist, people liberate themselves” … as said by Ernesto Che Guevara. Do you think people are completely sovereign in this world, even if you call your country is sovereign? Do you have the right to express your opinion every time? Do you think you have equal right on natural resources? Are you able to get the education to your likes even if you are capable to study it? Are you able to marry a girl, even if she likes you? If your answer is NO at least to one question, then YOU ARE NOT FREE.
ഞാന്‍: ശരിയാണ് pR@tz പറഞ്ഞത്. എല്ലാവരും സ്വയം വിചാരിക്കേണ്ട കാര്യമാണ് അത്. ഇന്ത്യയ്ക്ക് സ്വാതന്ത്ര്യം‌ കിട്ടുന്നതിന് മുമ്പ് ആളുകളുടെ ചിന്താഗതിയും ഇപ്രകാരം തന്നെ ആയിരുന്നല്ലോ, “എന്തിനാപ്പോ സ്വാതന്ത്ര്യം കിട്ടിയിട്ട്” എന്ന്. അത് പോലെ തന്നെ ഇപ്പോഴും. ആളുകള്‍ ഇപ്പോഴും കരുതുന്നത് അവര്‍ സ്വതന്ത്രരാണ് എന്നാണ്. പീസ്സയും കഴിച്ച് പെപ്സിയും കുടിച്ച് നടക്കുന്ന അവര്‍ക്കറിയില്ല, അവര്‍ കഴിക്കുന്ന ഭക്ഷണം എന്തായിരിക്കണം, കുടിക്കുന്ന പാനീയം എന്തായിരിക്കണം, എന്നൊക്കെ തീരുമാനിക്കുന്നത് (അല്ലെങ്കില്‍ തീരുമാനിക്കുവാന്‍ പോകുന്നത്) നമ്മുക്കൊക്കെ സങ്കല്‍പ്പിക്കുവാന്‍ പോലും കഴിയാത്തത്ര സ്വത്തുള്ള അന്താരാഷ്ട്ര കുത്തകകള്‍ ആണെന്ന്. സ്വന്തം കാര്യം ചിന്തിക്കുവാന്‍ പോലും മറക്കുന്ന ഇവര്‍, ഒരു സഹജീവിയെ കുറിച്ച് എപ്പോ ഓര്‍ക്കും?

pR@tz: Right said. I have seen many people advising “why the hell are you interfering in that mess, you aren’t affected naa…“. I think it is the problem with the way they are brought up, the kind of education they got, hatred or prejudices against ideologies other than their beliefs. Things should be changed from the root level. People should be taught to cooperate and not to compete. The whole educational system is flawed. As far as Kerala is concerned, I think the problems started with the banning of politics in educational institutions.
ഞാന്‍: രാഷ്ഠ്രീയം നിരോധിച്ചത് ഒരു തെറ്റായ കാര്യമാണെന്ന് അംഗീകരിക്കുന്നതിനോടൊപ്പം pR@tz പറഞ്ഞ മറ്റൊരു കാര്യത്തോട് ഞാന്‍ വിയോജിക്കുന്നു. പ്രശ്നങ്ങള്‍ തുടങ്ങ്നിയത് കലാലയ രാഷ്ട്രീയ രംഗം ‘കലാപ രാഷ്ട്രീയ രംഗം” ആയതോടെയാണ്. കുട്ടി നേതാക്കളെ മര്യാദയ്ക്ക് നിര്‍ത്തേണ്ട മുതിര്‍ന്ന നേതാക്കള്‍ പല കാര്യങ്ങള്‍ക്ക് വേണ്ടിയും അവരെ ഉപയോഗിച്ചത് തന്നെയാണ് എന്ന് വേണമെങ്കില്‍ പറയാം. എന്തായാലും ഈ അരാഷ്ഠ്രീയവല്‍ക്കരണത്തിന്റെ പരിണതഫലങ്ങളാണ് ജനാധിപത്യമൂല്യങ്ങളെ കുറിച്ചും, അവകാശങ്ങളെ കുറിച്ചുമുള്ള അറിവില്ലായ്മ. ഈ അറിവില്ലായമയില്‍ നിന്ന് ഉടലെടുത്തതാണ് പ്രതിഷേധസമരങ്ങലോടുള്ള എതിര്‍പ്പും പുഛ്ചവും. പ്രതിഷേധ സമരം‌ കൊണ്ട് ശക്തനും അദൃശ്യനുമായ എതിരാളിക്കെന്താണ് സംഭവിക്കുവാന്‍ പോകുന്നത് എന്ന് ചോദിക്കുന്നവരോട് എനിക്ക് സഹതാപമേയുള്ളു.

pR@tz: Thank you njaan for your support. Protests have its own power, when you protest it is like telling the whole world that “See this is not right”. I think we had created enough buzz to inform the world that something had happened wrong somewhere. Though, “physical actions” outside blogosphere are necessary to call this a complete victory.
ഞാന്‍: എല്ലാ ഭാവുകങ്ങളും നേരുന്നു. ചില കാര്യങ്ങള്‍ ചോദിച്ചാല്‍ കൊള്ളാമെന്നുണ്ട്. ചോദിക്കട്ടെ? ചിലപ്പോള്‍ വിവാദമായേക്കും.

pR@tz: Let it be. Shoot..
ഞാന്‍: എന്ത് കൊണ്ടാണ് ബെര്‍ളി തോമസിനെ ആക്രമിച്ചത്? നിങ്ങളുടെ പ്രതിഷേധത്തെയും മറ്റും പരിഹസിക്കുന്ന പോസ്റ്റുകള്‍ മറ്റ് പലരും ഇട്ടിട്ടുണ്ടല്ലോ. അവരെയൊന്നും തൊടാതെ എന്തിന് ബെര്‍ളിയെ അടച്ചാക്ഷേപിച്ചു?

pR@tz: അതിന് മലയാളത്തില്‍ തന്നെ ഉത്തരം പറയാം. ഞാന്‍ അറിയുന്ന ബെര്‍ളി തോമസില്‍ നിന്നും അത്തരമൊരു പ്രതികരണമല്ല പ്രതീക്ഷിച്ചത്. സൂപ്പര്‍മാന്‍ തൊട്ട് ശക്തിമാന്‍ വരെ പത്രപ്രവര്‍ത്തകരായിരുന്നു. അങ്ങനെ സാമൂഹികപ്രതിബദ്ധതയുള്ള ഒരാളില്‍ നിന്നും പ്രതീക്ഷിക്കുന്നത് അത്തരമൊരു പ്രതികരണമായിരുന്നില്ല. അത് കൊണ്ട് ബെര്‍ളിയെ വിമര്‍ശിച്ച് എഴുതി. ബെര്‍ളി അതിനൊരു മറുപടിയും തന്നു. ഞാന്‍ തിരികെ ഒന്നും കൊടുത്തു.
ഞാന്‍: അപ്പോ ബാക്കി വന്ന തെറികള്‍ ഒന്നും കണ്ടില്ലെന്നാണോ അവകാശപ്പെടുന്നത്. 😉

pR@tz: ബാക്കിയേത് പന്നന്‍മാര് പറഞ്ഞാലും എനിക്കെന്താ? Let they do what ever they want to. If I chase every criticism I recieve and reply them individually, I will have time only for that. I am basically a research scholar, the role of blogger is secondary. I reply only those criticisms which deserves it.
ഞാന്‍: ഒരു സംശയം കൂടി. നിങ്ങലുടെ ഈ ബ്ലോഗ്ഗില്‍ കമന്റ് മോഡറേറ്റ് ചെയ്യുകയാണെന്നും, നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കിഷ്ടമുള്ള കമന്റുകള്‍ മാത്രമെ അനുവദികാറുള്ളൂ എന്നും കേട്ടു. ജനാധിപത്യമൂല്യങ്ങളെ കുറിച്ച് വാ തോരാതെ സംസാരിച്ചിട്ട് ആ ചെയ്തത് ശരിയാണോ?

pR@tz: The comments to this blog are moderated only for the first time, and that policy is only to avoid spam-bots. I accept all kinds of criticisms, though reply to only those which deserves it. Once you comment this blog with an e-mail ID, your comments will be published without moderation from second time, if it is not spam. Thanks to wordpress for that really intelligent option.
ഞാന്‍: ഒന്ന് പോയേ, ബ്ലോഗ്ഗറ് തന്നെയാ കിടിലം‌. ഇങ്ങക്ക് ഈ-മെയ്‌ല് വഴി കമന്റ് ട്രാക്ക് ചെയ്യാന്‍ പറ്റുമോ…?

pR@tz: njaan, its already 6.30. ഇനി ഹോസ്റ്റലില്‍ പോയിട്ട് തിരികെ വരേണ്ടതല്ലേ. ഏതാ മെസ്സ്?
ഞാന്‍:കാവേരി തന്നെ. ഞാന്‍ ഈ കൃഷ്ണയില്‍ നിന്നും കാവേരിയില്‍ നിന്നുമൊക്കെ കഴിച്ച് മടുത്ത്. എനിക്ക് ഹിമാലയ ആണ് ഇഷ്ടപ്പെട്ടത്. അപ്പൊ ശരി. പിരിയാം. ഇത് പോലൊരു പരിപാടി ഞാന്‍ എന്റെ ബ്ലോഗ്ഗിലും ഒരെണ്ണം arrange ചെയ്യുന്നുണ്ട്. വരണേ..

pR@tz: oh! sure… have a nice day (ഉവ്വ് ഉവ്വ്… ഇന്ന് എന്തൊക്കെ തെറിയാ കേള്‍ക്കാന്‍ പോണത്ത് എന്ന് ദൈവത്തിനറിയാം).

So that was njaan from njaan.blogspot.com. Nice that he had invited me for a meeting, as he never gave me a chance question him. Thanks for bearing with us. Please let us know about this post. Take care until we meet next. Enjoy.

[To whomsoever it may concern: Though pR@tz and njaan (ഞാന്‍) are the screen names of same person, they should not be used interchangeably. pR@tz is the screen name at https://njaan.wordpress.com/ which talks English and njaan (ഞാന്‍) is the screen name at http://njaan.blogspot.com/ which speaks Malayalam]

[To whomsoever it may concern: the name of the author/owner of this blog (https://njaan.wordpress.com/ ) is pR@tz and not ‘njaan’, though the author/owner of this blog (https://njaan.wordpress.com/), writes another blog located at http://njaan.blogspot.com/ . Hence, the readers are requested to address the author by the name pR@tz when you refer this blog (https://njaan.wordpress.com/ )]

If I can trust my memory, I first learned about randomness in my 12th standard and it is still one the topics I hate the most. For those people, who are going to attend GATE exams, here is a quick tip from me “better not to attempt questions from probability section; the probability that your answer is wrong is greater than .99“. Doing so will help you to save time for the remaining questions.  Back to the title, this post will be having two sections, the first section is,

Suicide

Imagine there are 1000 people in a locality, 500 men and 500 women. The probability that a particular man and particular woman will marry (assume that none of them are blood relatives, and everyone SHOULD marry before age of 25!) is less than or equal to 1/500 (that is what I know, I am quite weak in probability). Now, the average sperm-count in the ejaculate of Homo sapiens is about 280 million [1]. And, on an average a healthy women produces about 480 ova in her lifetime. Now, calculate the probability of mating of a sperm among this 280 million (this in fact is much smaller number when compared to the total number of sperms produced by a male during his lifetime, but for the sake of simplicity let us take 280 million) with one of the 480 ova[2]. Even after assuming that, this particular zygote grows into a healthy child, and to a mature Homo sapiens, just see the probability for getting that UNIQUE zygote (or unique individual). There is even randomness during the time when zygote is formed (the crossover, number of crossovers)[3]. That means the probability for you, me and we to live (blog) int his world tends to the value ZERO.

There are two (independent) conclusions for the first section,

(a) You don’t exist at all, because the probability that you were born to earth is ZERO (or near ZERO)

(b) You are really ‘lucky’ to live in this world, hence enjoy to maximum, be productive…….. (not necessarily on bed, I mean to contribute to humankind)

Heads and Tails

Assume that I have tossed an unbiased coin (not the ‘sholay’ coin), the probability to get heads and tails are 50%. Is it just a probability? Is coin tossing always random? I had always thought of coin tossing, just because I don’t want to study probability, even the questions on probability confuse me a lot.

When I toss the coin what happens is, the coin rotates about an axis parallel to its diameter, moves up and comes down because of gravity and makes a number of turns about the axis. The outcome, head or tail, is determined by the initial face and the number of turns it made. The number f turns it made depends on rotational speed of the coin about its axis and the distance through which it moves (let us assume that it is equal to twice the maximum height it reaches in magnitude)

Let us see the various factors (not necessarily independent) affecting the outcome of coin-tossing,

  1. Initial position of the coin – whether it is the tail/head side horizontal to the ground or is it inclined at an angle.
  2. Force with which the coin is tossed – the force I apply to toss the coin determines the rotational speed of coin and the maximum height it reaches.
  3. Point at which I apply the force – or the way you hold the coin while tossing. It determines the speed, the path of motion of coin through air, the rotational speed of coin and the maximum height it reaches.
  4. Mass of the coin – It also have effects on the maximum height it reaches, the rotational speed.
  5. Ambient conditions – Will affect the viscosity and density of air, which in turn affects the rotational speed and maximum attainable height of the coin.
  6. Location (Equator, Polar regions, Earth, Saturn, Jupiter)- The magnitude of gravitational pull or technically, the acceleration due to gravity will definitely have an effect on the above mentioned parameters.
  7. ………. there will be more, I could find only 6.

Hence we can say that, the outcome of coin tossing is deterministic or near-deterministic. Now you can stop saying, “it’s god’s grace that India won the toss today” because you can Mathematically model the coin tossing process and predict the outcome. There will only be a single outcome for same set of conditions. More the number of factors, your model will become more accurate.

In a similar way you can model whole processes that happens in Universe, which are traditionally called random.

Huit fakten sobre мне ….

Huit (French) – Eight
Fakten (German) – facts
Sobre (Spanish) – about
мне (Russian) – me
Thanks to Google Translate

Last day I got a tag FROM and . I liked this tag a lot, it gives me a chance to “express myself” . Only problem is with the last section where I have to pass on the tag, unfortunately for me, me and abhi have a lot of friends in common and have tagged my potential victims (Hari and Renji).

(To whomsoever it may concern:- my name is pR@tz in this blog, and the name njaan is applicable ONLY when you talk about my blogs at blogspot.com. In the future, please mention me as pR@tz when you mention this blog)

(RED ones are evolved rules)

Eight things I am passionate about (not in any particular order)

  1. Socialism – I am passionate and always dream about a socialist world where everyone are equal, share the resources equally, have same opportunities, there are no rich or poor, no black or white, Indian or Pakistani, no Ezhava or Nair, no Christian or Hindu, but only humans who cooperate, not compete, understand each of their responsibilities to society or mankind (rather than to nation/religion/caste/color/race) without any compulsion and work together as a cluster for the overall development of mankind. The only two classes in that society will be MEN and WOMEN. Every member of that society will get everything to live, there won’t be a controlling body, in fact there isn’t any need of such controlling body as all the people in that society will be rich in gray matter and they know only to cooperate and work together.
  2. GNU/Linux – I am a big fan of GNU/Linux. I firmly believe it is the future. For those people who haven’t tried GNU/Linux for the reason that “GNU/Linux is for geeks; am not a geek“, I feel sorry for the decision you made. Ubuntu is a great distro for new GNU/Linux users. Try the KDE in Ubuntu (Kubuntu) and you will stop saying “hallelu-Windows“. If your hardware supports (no it doesn’t require a hell-load like Vista), try the desktop-effects (compiz-fusion) in GNU/Linux and never say that GNU/Linux is plastic.
  3. Alternate fuels – My passion for alternate energy sources started while I was doing my B.Tech project. I should add, that I wasn’t a bright student during my B.tech era, which means I am not qualified enough even “to think” about alternative fuels and people used to laugh at me when I talked about alternative fuels. For most of them, an electric car or nuclear energy served the purpose of “crude oil substitute”. I am the happiest person in the universe, that I got the chance to research on my favorite topic in my favorite lab in one of the best technical institutes in India, even after being a person who took 5 years to complete his 4 year engineering course!!!
  4. Orkut – I was invited to Orkut (For peoples who are unaware, there was a time when entry to Orkut was available only through invites from already members, those were the times when one will have to explain “What Orkut is” to their friends, but I liked those times because there was no spam, no fake profiles) by my friend Riz. That was just the beginning. Orkut had guided me the right way, many times in my life. One thing I should mention is, it was from Orkut I came to know about “Ace engineering academy” at Hyderabad (yes! it is a free advertisement out of my gratitude), without which I wouldn’t have qualified for GATE or achieved my dreams. I should also add that, I am really unhappy about the present state of Orkut which I will publish in one of my future posts.
  5. Long trips – I would like to go for long trips (not the usual home-institute trips) with a companion who shares similar thoughts, not necessarily the likes, with me. So that we can talk all along the journey, argue over things, transfer the steering to each other when one gets tired, blah blah.
  6. Food – Copied from abhi, eating is a passion for me these days. I am a pure veggie., the only animal derivatives in my diet are honey and milk products. A big fan of paneer dishes, which is the only the rich source of proteins for vegetarians like me.
  7. Sex – I am not sure about the after-effects of listing this passion in my kith-kin circle. I don’t find anything wrong in listing it here. It is a gift by nature to me to get attracted to opposite sex. I should also add that I am not a pervert or a pedophile. I am pretty much sure that it is the same for almost all the people, but most of them doesn’t disclose it because of the fear of criticisms (I am expecting a lot here). People often blabber about the mighty Indian culture when topics on sex are discussed. I seriously doubt, they have no idea about Kamasutra and/or Khajuraho sculptures which even mention different ways of homosexuality and zoophilia. I haven’t and never will go to that extent. I believe that the increased number of sex related crimes in our region is highly related to the taboo attached to it.
  8. Blogging – Again a copy from abhi. It has been two years since I am into the blogosphere. I have started blogging with Yahoo! 360, then to my Malayalam blog ഞാന്‍ and then I started this one and then പടപ്പെട്ടി my photoblog. Right now these are the blogs I am actively participating. I believe that blogging is a strong media and feel sorry when people ignores it social dimension.

Eight things I want to do before I die (not in any particular order)

  1. To build a socialistic world as mentioned in previous section.
  2. One of my short term goal is to help India to be “energy libre”. I feel, at this moment, when I write this blog, India like most of the countries is highly dependent on OPEC for its energy needs. The price of crude oil and war in gulf controls how much an ordinary person should eat, how an ordinary man should travel in India. I wish to see an energy-independent India in near future, and that will be extended to energy-independent people.
  3. To do my PhD and post doctoral studies.
  4. I will buy some land, start cultivating for “food+energy”. A sustainable agricultural method is one of my dreams not materialized yet.
  5. I wish my ex-girlfriends who mercilessly rejected my plea come back to me once so that I can show my middle finger at them and yell “f**k off losers, opportunity knocked your doors, not just once, now go to hell and get f**ked by devil!!!!” (ഹൊ കലിപ്പുകള് തീരണില്ലല്ലാ)
  6. To spread the free software philosophy across the globe and help people from the clutches of proprietary softwares.
  7. To help Firefox to achieve the world record of highest number of downloads a day.
  8. To own a high end digital SLR camera, related accessories and a laptop.

Eight things I say often (not in any particular order)

  1. കോപ്പ് (koppu) – I don’t know the meaning.
  2. മ______ (m——-) – I won’t tell the meaning.
  3. pinnnnaeeee …… I don’t know how to tell the meaning
  4. f**k you a55h01e
  5. എന്നാ ഉണ്ടെഡേ വിശേഷങ്ങള്” (enna undede visheshangalu) – how are you
  6. പോഡെ പോഡെ” (podae podae) –
  7. “യെവെനൊന്നും വേറെ പണിയില്ലേ” (yevanonnum vere paniyillae)
  8. sighhhh!!!

Eight books/blogs/journals I have read recently (not in any particular order)

  1. Combustion and Mass-transfer by Spalding D B, First Edition, Pergamon press, Oxford, 1979
    (Just today I cited this book)
  2. Perry’s Chemical Engineers Handbook
  3. Internal Combustion Engine Fundamentals – Heywood J B
  4. അഭിപ്രായങ്ങള്‍ by സൂരജ് :: suraj
  5. അഞ്ചല്‍ by

Eight songs I would listen over and over (not in any particular order)

  1. When you say nothing at all” by Ronan Keating
  2. Hero” by Enrique Iglesias
  3. Devangangal” (who is the singer), Njaan Gandharvan (Malayalam)
  4. Fear of the dark” Iron Maiden
  5. Appudo Ippudo Eppado” in Bommarillu (Telugu)
  6. Thendrale” in Kadhaldesham (Tamil)
  7. Poi sollakkoodathu kaathalie” in Run (Tamil)
  8. eighth is reserved for the rest of my favorites

Eight things in others that attracts me (not in any particular order)

  1. Intelligence – I admire people with huge amounts of gray matter.
  2. Intellectuality – I love to interact with intellectuals.
  3. Beauty – I do search and love to see beautiful girls around me (though doesn’t value it for any kind of selection, be it friendship or better-half)
  4. Rational/radical thoughts
  5. People with “political sense”
  6. People who are so humble and simple
  7. People who work/talk free softwares and/or GNU/Linux
  8. nothing, I want to sleep

The tag goes to the following

  1. Amooma – muhahahahaha!
  2. Guy in the middle
  3. Anand Henry

ഇത്രേയുള്ളൂ! This should be the longest post I have ever written, both in terms of word count (about 1468 words) as well as in terms of time taken for completion, about 5 hours

Thanks a lot Berly Thomas for your reply to my post. Let me first (try to) clear your doubts,

Berly Thomas asked:

ഇഞ്ചിപ്പെണ്ണ് മലയാളം ബ്ലോഗിങ് കമ്യൂണിറ്റിക്കു വേണ്ടിയാണ് ഈ പ്രശ്നത്തില്‍ ഇടപെട്ടതെന്ന് നിങ്ങള്‍ തീരുമാനിച്ചാല്‍ മതിയോ ? അങ്ങനെയെങ്കില്‍ ഇടപെടും മുമ്പ് ഈ മലയാളം ബ്ലോഗിങ് കമ്യൂണിറ്റിയോട് വിവരം പറഞ്ഞിരുന്നോ. ദുര്‍ബലചിത്തരേ, നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കു വേണ്ടി ഇതാ ഞാന്‍ പോരിനിറങ്ങുന്നു എന്ന് ? ഞാനും ഒരു മലയാളം ബ്ലോഗറാണ് എന്റെ പോസ്റ്റും മോഷ്ടിക്കപ്പെട്ടതാണ്, എന്നോടാരും പറഞ്ഞില്ല.

Answer:- I never told injipennu that I am going to help her in the issue with kerals.com, and I guess it is the same with majority of 106 members who protested. It is just the civic responsibility that requested injipennu to help the community and me to support injipennu. If you didn’t want injipennu to take up the problem, my question is “Sir, you had the option to question kerals.com, why didn’t you do that sir?” (എനിക്ക് വേറെ പണിയുണ്ട് എന്നാണ് ഉത്തരമെങ്കില്‍ എനിക്ക് കൂടുതല്‍ പറയാനില്ല)

Berly Thomas asked:

പോസ്റ്റുകള്‍ മോഷ്ടിക്കപ്പെട്ട പല ബ്ലോഗര്‍മാരും ഇഞ്ചിപ്പെണ്ണിനെ വേദനിപ്പിച്ച ഇ മെയിലുകള്‍ വന്ന ശേഷം ആ ബ്ലോഗറെ സപ്പോര്‍ട്ട് ചെയ്യാന്‍ കൂട്ടാക്കുന്നില്ല എന്ന് നിങ്ങള്‍ പരിവേദനം പറയുന്നു. ഇഞ്ചിപ്പെണ്ണ് പ്രസിദ്ധീകരിച്ച ഇമെയിലുകളും ഭീഷണികളും അവരുടെ പേഴ്സനല്‍ ഇമെയിലില്‍ നിന്ന് നടത്തിയ മെയില്‍ ഇടപാടുകളുടെ ആണെന്നിരിക്കെ അതിനെ സംബന്ധിച്ച് ഇത്ര ആധികാരികമായി പറയാന്‍ നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കെങ്ങനെ സാധിക്കുന്നു ? അതുംപോകട്ടെ, ഇങ്ങനെ കുറെ മെയിലുകള്‍ ഇഞ്ചിപ്പെണ്ണ് പ്രസിദ്ധീകരിച്ചതിന്റെ അടിസ്ഥാനത്തില്‍ ബാക്കി ബ്ലോഗര്‍മാരെല്ലാം ആ ബ്ലോഗറെ സപ്പോര്‍ട്ട് ചെയ്യണം എന്നു പറയുന്നതെന്തുകൊണ്ടാണ് ? ഈ പ്രശ്നത്തില്‍ ഉള്‍പ്പെട്ട സൈറ്റിന്റെ ആളുകളുമായി ഇ മെയില്‍ ഇടപാട് നടത്തുകയും തെറി കേള്‍ക്കുകയും ചെയ്ത അനേകര്‍ വിസ്മരിക്കപ്പെട്ടതെന്തുകൊണ്ടാണ് ?

Answer:- “ഇഞ്ചിക്ക് അല്ല പ്രാധാന്യം, ബ്ലോഗ്ഗര്‍ക്കാണ്, ബ്ലോഗ്ഗിങ്ങിനാണ്” was one of the comment I posted here on June 7, 2008 5:17 PM (The date and time is important). I still stand by that statement. I stand for the blogger irrespective of his/her screen name, sex, religion, caste or nationality. I do support others (if any) who are affected. Please read the FAQ here.

Berly Thomas asked:

സുഹൃത്തെ, ‘Mr. Berly Thomas, a journalist at Malayala Manorama’. ആരു പറഞ്ഞു നിങ്ങളോട് ?
ഈ ബ്ലോഗിലെവിടെയെങ്കിലും എഴുതി വച്ചിട്ടുണ്ടോ ? പിന്നെ എന്തടിസ്ഥാനത്തിലാണ് ഇത്തരം കാര്യങ്ങള്‍ നിങ്ങള്‍ എഴുതിപ്പിടിപ്പിക്കുന്നത് ? എന്റെ സ്വകാര്യവിവരങ്ങള്‍ അന്വേഷിച്ച് ബ്ലോഗില്‍ പ്രസിദ്ധപ്പെടുത്തിയതിന് നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കെതിരെ ഞാനെന്തു നിയമനടപടിയാണ് സ്വീകരിക്കേണ്ടത് ?

Answer:- I prefer not to comment on this. Your arguments seems to be too childish!

And the rest of allegations,

ഇഞ്ചിപ്പെണ്ണിന്റെ പോസ്റ്റ് മഹത്തരവും അതിനെ വിമര്‍ശിക്കുന്നത് സ്റ്റുപിഡ് പോസ്റ്റും ആണെന്ന് നിങ്ങള്‍ പറയുമ്പോള്‍ തന്നെ ഇതിന്റെയൊരു രാഷ്ട്രീയം വായനക്കാര്‍ക്ക് മനസ്സിലാവും. . .

Reply: I never criticized the comments or posts made in the right tone and with clear intentions (also see this comment, I will add more when ever I spot them) You can check the tone and intentions with the blogs listed in my blog with this one and find a clear cut difference between them. I repeat, I don’t see any distinction between injipennu and Berly Thomas, I will be there where I feel, there is a need for me to interfere. Thats what I call civic responsibility.

മനസ്സിലായില്ല. ആരാണ് ഈ ‘us’ ? നിങ്ങള്‍ ആര്‍ക്കുവേണ്ടിയാണ് സംസാരിക്കുന്നത് ? നിങ്ങളോടൊപ്പം നില്‍ക്കാന്‍ നിങ്ങളാരാണ് ? നിങ്ങള്‍ എത്ര പേരുണ്ട് ? എന്താണ് നിങ്ങളുടെ അജന്‍ഡ ? കാര്യങ്ങള്‍ തുറന്നു പറയൂ സുഹൃത്തേ.

Reply: ഇതിനൊക്കെ ഞാന്‍ മലയാളത്തില്‍ മറുപടി തരാം. us എന്ന് ഉദ്ദേശിച്ചത് ഇത് വരെ പ്രതികരണശേഷി നഷ്ടപ്പെട്ടിട്ടില്ലാത്ത നട്ടെല്ലുള്ള ഒരു കൂട്ടം‌ ബ്ലോഗ്ഗര്‍മ്മാര്‍. തികച്ചും സ്വതന്ത്രമായി തന്നെ,  വളരെ സമാധാനപര്മായി,  വളരെ ജനാധിപത്യപരമായി തന്താങ്ങളുടെ ബ്ലോഗ്ഗുകളില്‍ അവരുടെ പ്രതിഷേധം രേഖപ്പെടുത്തി . ഞാന്‍  സംസാരിക്കുന്നത് ബ്ലോഗ്ഗര്‍ സമൂഹത്തിന് വേണ്ടി. തോന്നുന്നവന്‍ തോന്നുമ്പോള്‍ കയറി തോന്ന്യവാസം കാട്ടിയിട്ട് പോകുവാനുള്ളതല്ല ബ്ലോഗ്ഗുകള്‍ എന്ന കാര്യം‌ ഞാന്‍  പറയുന്നതിലെന്താണ് തെറ്റ്? എന്റെ അജണ്ട ഒന്നേയുള്ളു – അത് ദാ പറഞ്ഞും കഴിഞ്ഞു.

എല്ലാ മലയാളം ബ്ലോഗര്‍മാരുടെയും ശബ്ദമാണോ നിങ്ങളുടെ ഈ പോസ്റ്റ് ? എല്ലാ മലയാളം ബ്ലോഗര്‍മാര്‍ക്കു വേണ്ടിയും നിങ്ങളെന്നോട് സംസാരിക്കുമ്പോള്‍ അത് ഇഞ്ചിപ്പെണ്ണ് പ്രതിക്കൂട്ടില്‍ നില്‍ക്കുന്ന വെബ്സൈറ്റ് അധികൃതരോട് സംസാരിച്ചത്പോലെയാവുകയാണല്ലോ സുഹൃത്തേ.

Reply: It is MY BLOG, its MY VOICE and I never said that I wasn’t talking on behalf of all the bloggers. The posts regarding all these issue read “I protest”, “I extend my protest” and where is WE in that?

നിങ്ങളെന്നെക്കുറിച്ച് അതുമിതും പ്രതീക്ഷിച്ചതിന് എനിക്കെന്തു ചെയ്യാന്‍ പറ്റും. ഞാനെന്റെ ബ്ലോഗില്‍ എനിക്കിഷ്ടമുള്ളതെഴുതുന്നു. അത് നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കിഷ്ടപ്പെടാത്തത് കൊണ്ട് അല്ലെങ്കില്‍ നിങ്ങളെക്കൊണ്ട് ഈ പോസ്റ്റ് എഴുതിക്കുന്ന ആളുകള്‍ക്കിഷ്ടപ്പെടാത്തതുകൊണ്ട് “Mr. Berly Thomas have now shown a model to all of budding journalists – “How a journalist should NOT be” എന്ന് ഉറച്ചു പ്രഖ്യാപിക്കാന്‍ നിങ്ങളാരാണ് ?

Reply:- I thought you were a journalist (sigh! I know another Berly Thomas who is a sub-editor at Malayala Manorama and I thought both you are same). Now that I had understood my mistake, I have withdrawn my comments.

സ്വന്തം ഐഡന്റിറ്റ് ഒളിച്ച് വച്ച് ഒരു കള്ളപ്പേരില്‍ കയറിയിരുന്ന് എന്നെ വിധിക്കാന്‍ നിങ്ങളായിട്ടില്ല. എന്തായാലും നിങ്ങളുടെ പ്രഖ്യാപനം ഞാന്‍ സീരിയസ്സായെടുക്കുന്നു. നിങ്ങള്‍ ശ്രദ്ധിച്ചില്ലെങ്കില്‍ ഒരു കാര്യം ചൂണ്ടിക്കാണിക്കാം. എന്തിനെതിരെ പ്രക്ഷോഭം നടത്തുന്ന കാര്യമാണോ നിങ്ങള്‍ പ്രസംഗിച്ചത് അതേ തെറ്റുകള്‍ തന്നെയാണ് നിങ്ങള്‍ ചെയ്യുന്നതും. എല്ലാ ഭാവുകങ്ങളും നേരുന്നു, തുടര്‍ന്നെഴുതുക !

Reply:- ആര് ആരുടെ ഐഡെന്റിറ്റിയാണ് മറച്ച് വെച്ചിരിക്കുന്നത് എന്ന് ഞാന്‍ പറയണമോ? എന്റെ ഐഡെന്റിറ്റി ഈ ബ്ലോഗ്ഗില്‍ പൂര്‍ണ്ണമായില്ലെന്നേയുള്ളു. അത് പൂര്‍ണ്ണമായുമുള്ള സ്ഥലത്തേക്ക് പോകുവാനുള്ള വഴികളും കൊടുത്തിട്ടുണ്ട്. പിന്നെ ഇവിടെ ഞാനെഴുതുന്ന പേരും, ഞാന്‍ മലയാളത്തിലെഴുതുന്ന പേരും വ്യത്യാസമാണ്. എന്നിട്ടും എന്നെ ഇതു വരെ എല്ലാവരും ‘ഞാന്‍’ എന്ന് മാത്രമെ അഭിസംബോധന ചെയ്തിട്ടുള്ളൂ. അതില്‍ നിന്നും മനസ്സിലാക്കാം ഞാന്‍ എന്റെ ഐഡന്റിറ്റി മറച്ച് വെയ്ക്കുവാന്‍ ഒരു കാലത്തും ശ്രമിച്ചിട്ടില്ല എന്ന്.

I never ever asked anyone forcefully to support us. But I criticized the standings of ONLY those people who spoofed and trivialized the whole issue and I will be doing the same again, in this issue as well as in the future.

And, yes I admit a mistake I did, that I had posted your personal details including your job in my previous post (??there is still a confusion over that??). I am again clarifying, “I am NOT a member of any group. I will still support and talk for those issues where I feel my support is required.

(to be continued with more clarifications, please check FAQ {scroll down} if you still have doubts)

As mentioned in my previous post, I had changed the color of my blog to protest against the actions of cyber criminal Avinash ~Kottarakara~.

It should be noted that none of Injipennu‘s posts were copied by kerals.com, and she interfered in this problem for Malayalam Blogging Community and many of the affected bloggers didn’t even bother to support or pacify injipennu after those humiliating e-mails and threats. It was really shocking to see Mr. Berly Thomas’ post (It is a spoof, but directed at Injipennu). Mr. Berly Thomas, a journalist at Malayala Manorama* (UPDATE:- Mr. Berly Thomas, who is NOT a journalist at Malayalam Manorama, but a blogger), is quite famous in Malayalam blogosphere for his humor sense and his spoof posts (I am a daily visitor of his blog). But this post have exposed his immature thinking and action which is least expected from a responsible journalist* (UPDATE:- blogger). I have only heard of journalists* (UPDATE:- bloggers) who fought for peoples freedom and rights, who stood for justice and I still have a positive image about them. Just think, when you get time, if such threats came to someone close to you. I hope you won’t create a spoof post at that time too.

There are some posts like this too, I prefer not to answer such stupid posts from an ignorant kiddo. But Mr. Berly Thomas, this is too much. I won’t ask you to ‘paint black’ and join hands with us. But that post of yours was really insulting the efforts and unity of the whole Malayalam Bloggers.

I would like to answer some questions before going to the list.

FAQ1. Why the protest?

Quoting ‘Raj Neettiyath’, an ace Malayalam Blogger,

While protesting our voices may not be heard by kerals.com, or by any officials. But the victims here, or similar ones elsewhere are surely going to hear it, and they will feel our care for them, they will feel stronger to stand against the tides. അമേരിക്കയുടെ ഇറാഖ് അധിനിവേശത്തിനെതിരെ കേരളത്തില്‍ പ്രകടനം നടത്തുന്നത് അമേരിക്കയതുകണ്ടു പേടിക്കുമെന്ന് കരുതിയിട്ടൊന്നുമല്ല, അധിനിവേശത്തിന്റെ ഇരകളെ, അതുപോലെ മറ്റനവധി ഇരകളെ നമ്മുടെ ആ ചെയ്തി തൊടുന്നുണ്ട്, അവരവരുടേതായ പോരാട്ടങ്ങളില്‍ അവര്‍ക്ക് ആത്മവീര്യം പകരുന്ന ചെറുചൂടെങ്കിലും ആകുവാന്‍ ഇത്തരം ശ്രമങ്ങള്‍ക്കു കഴിയുന്നുണ്ട്.

Nothing more to add from my part. The idea is clear. The power of blogs is the buzz created by it and we ARE creating it.

FAQ2. Are’nt you increasing the pagerank and ad revenues of Kerals.com by linking to it?

Not at all. Maybe we are increasing the PR. But that increase in PR and the fame created by the blog actions wont get converted to money, for the following reasons. One is that, Kerals.com and the related sites are going to get shutdown soon for its illegal activities by the authorities. Next that, you can use adblock-plus extension to block ads from their, or any site, if you are using Firefox.

UPDATE:- It seems Google had banned kerals.com’s Google adsense account.

FAQ3. Are you a bunch of Injipennu fans or are you a member of any of the groups in Malayalam Blogosphere or are you against Berly Thomas?

I am a fan of myself, personally speaking. I don’t worship any Injipennu or pepperpennu. The attack against injipennu was as a result of her interference in the copyright infringement by kerals.com (She did it for the sake of whole blogging community and NOT for her). I protest for the attack against a blogger, I will protest even if it was Mr. Berly Thomas in place of Injipennu.

I am not any member of any virtual groups which is said to be existing in Malayalam blogosphere. Supporting injipennu in this issue doesn’t mean that I will support her forever. Similarly, criticizing Berly Thomas doesn’t mean that I will criticize him for his every actions.

FAQ4. Why don’t you resort for a legal petition?

The “black week protest” is a form of extremely peaceful and democratic way of expressing our distress against Kerals.com. Doing so, we are highly optimistic that, the buzz created by us will be heard by the concerned authorities and force them to take an action against the perpetrators. There are technical difficulties for ‘un-affected’ parties like me and most others taking part in the protest to move a legal petition. As per Code of Criminal Procedure, there are two classes of offenses, cognizable and non-cognizable, and hence unless and until the affected parties take it to the court, no legal action can be taken, as all of the offenses are classified under non-cognizable offenses. (Courtesy: Mercutio)

FAQ5. Isn’t it really cheap to bring such political campaigns into blogosphere?

First of all politics is *NOT* cheap and if you think such democratic methods of expressing protest is cheap, India (or any democratic country) is not the right place for you to live. You are not only defaming blogs but the whole philosophy of democracy.

FAQ6. Don’t you think Injipennu is trying to become “joan of boologam“?

NO. I don’t think so. She did the right thing. We all were supposed to do the same. What did Mr. Berly Thomas – ‘the respected journalist‘ (UPDATE:- ‘an ordinary blogger‘) did? As ‘a respected journalist‘ (UPDATE:- ‘an ordinary blogger‘) I expected him to take up the lead role when the copyright violations were first reported. He should have at least mailed kerals.com asking for copy-right violations from his blog. Mr. Berly Thomas have now shown a model to all of budding journalists – “How a journalist should NOT be” * (UPDATE:- Ordinary blogger Berly Thomas have now shown a model to all of budding bloggers – “How a blogger should NOT be”). Any person with a minimum civic sense will show interest in helping his neighbor and thats the only ‘mistake‘ injipennu did.

First they came…

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Here, I am making a second list of backstabbers, (do check my previous post to see the people supporting injipennu in this issue, and that list is much much bigger than this one)

  1. Berly Thomas (Here is his response to this post)
  2. Annyan
    (A very civilized reply – must read from Annyan, gives a clear idea how he was brought up)
  3. MARAMAAKRI

(Hope I won’t have to update this list, and delete already listed entries)

* I hereby express my sincere regrets to blogger Berly Thomas whom I allegedly called a ‘journalist’ and to the journalist community for calling an ordinary blogger by the name ‘journalist’. Let me also express my regrets to the sub-editor Berly Thomas in Malayala Manorama for unnecessarily connecting him (MY own mistake) to blogger Berly Thomas.
