The so-called party of the students, by the students and for the students in Kerala except for you and me of course went on the rampage once again in the "royal" capital of the state, Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), destroying public property, disrupting traffic and of course getting themselves beaten up

Viewership ratings for Kerala's leading news channels usually go on a high whenever the so-called Student Samaritans are out on the street exhibiting their skills which seem to have been inherited from the likes of Shoaib Akhtar, Jean Claude Van Damme et al. 


Oppa Shoaib Style ^^^


And who are these bearded "students"? All those years in college, we never saw beards other than those of the "Fathers" in our missionary-run colleges! Obviously, many of them have never been to college and seem to be just criminal elements sent out to unleash violence by their forefathers who claim Russian and Chinese 'ancestry'! 

I really really wish these very concerned little politician-minister-chief minister-wannabes put up a simple protest on the streets of New Delhi, which is of course where most of the so-called problems they are protesting against seem to originate from! Please, please go to Delhi and get a taste of some real policemen!

Check out the door to the men's loo at the Trivandrum Airport which is supposed to be the Gateway to God's Own Country (at least according to Wikipedia)...I was not too sure about clicking the pic of the "Madama" on the door of the women's loo though!

The warriors on Trivandrum's wiki pages will never talk about the city's non-existent but superior waste-management system. However, they might try writing about poor waste-management in the neighboring commercial city of Kochi. Many such people (who never look in their own backyard before looking into those of others) live in the capital city of God's Own Country. When such people rule your city, state or country, how do you expect anything to change? First, look at your own and try to change something, then move on to that of your neighbors'?

A year and a half back, we had seen this

Well, as expected, things just got worse. The
Vilappilsala solid waste-treatment plant on the outskirts of Trivandrum has faced closure and the increasing number of agitations from the local populace means it might never open again. Waste-disposal has become increasingly difficult. If you carry a camera with you, you could probably drive around town all day clicking pictures of ordinary citizens like you and me throwing waste off their bikes and cars in full public view. 


The following picture was clicked while I was getting back home one night. Someone had just thrown out a huge bag of what looks like waste from a slaughter house. 24 hours later, it lay in the same spot!

  • You work in Technopark and you eat at one of the several food joints in the campus every now and then, if not every other day.
  • You pay more for a grilled chicken here than you would pay for, at the Forum Mall in Bangalore.
  • You are told it is international cuisine but you get chapattis for Mexican Tortillas.
  • You pay nearly 100 bucks for a Biriyani that has a Chicken Neck very well disguised as a Chicken Thigh, you still eat it because you do not have many a choice.
    All good. No complaints.

    What about basic hygiene?

    Coming from where most of us come from, the least we expect is HYGIENE. Hygiene as in food cooked in hygienic conditions. Hygiene as in plates washed in hygienic conditions.

    B
    elieve me, this is nothing new. I mean the over-priced food or the un-hygienic conditions.
    Every now and then, you see photos and emails complaining about worms, roaches, stapler clips and the like.
    And you find concerned replies from 'even-more-concerned' administrators. Nothing changes though.
    A few months back, we had sent an official mail from work complaining about the wash area. They said we will look into it and they did. It is back to square one though.
    Having been to several food courts across the country, this surely gets the prize for the best-defended food court.
    Several of us workmates eat there at least once a week, I mean we are forced to. So is everyone else.
    We do have options out on the road but nobody is gonna remove their cars from the limited parking space available in the campus and come back to find nowhere to park.

    So, we all end up eating there. Not everything is so bad. I would still eat at Domino's for the brand but not for the cheese of course. I would still have eaten at Cafe Mojo for the good food they served.

    What happens behind the curtains is never talked about. But and finally, once again, someone has dared to expose it. Yes, you need to be daring to expose such things in this part of the world! Well, that is another story, for later!

Technopark Techies face health hazard, 18 out of 19 food joints fail audit

E-mail
Tvm: Working in Technopark Trivandrum? It’s ok as long as you are not eating anything from the various restaurants, food joints and the outlets of leading food chains there. Food from 18 out of 19 outlets / restaurants / food joints in the Technopark campus, which was audited by a leading IT company there, failed to achieve the minimum standards set for safe consumption. There are 21 such places in the campus and while one is closed for renovation, the outlet of a leading pizza chain refused to let their premises to be inspected.
Concerned with the health of its employees, the company, which is one of the largest employers in Technopark, recently audited these outlets / restaurants / food joints keeping a set of well defined parameters. The team will be submitting a copy of the report to Technopark authorities. The sorry state of affairs of these places is a reflection of the innumerable complaints about the quality of food being served; leave apart the pricing, which is another bone of contention.
Some of the key findings of the report are:
1. Excessive use of artificial colouring / flavouring agents in most food joints. There are specific references to Rangoli, which runs three restaurants (Bhawani, Nila & near Park Centre)
2. Use of milk after expiry date in milk shakes / desserts, with specific reference to Passion Fruit which has two outlets (Nila & Thejaswani)
3. Cockroaches / insects in raw food packets, specifically noodle packets in restaurants serving Chinese food
4. Serving plates are not washed properly, serious issue at Thejaswani Food Court as it has centralised washing system and a common washing area
5. Cleanliness inside kitchen of most outlets is an issue, no or minimum usage of disinfectants
6. Repeated usage of heated oil for frying
7. Use of food items after the ‘Best Before’ dates
The audit report comes at a time when Vital Links, the company which runs the food court at Thejaswani has been issued a Termination Notice of its contact by Technopark and new contracts to run the outlets at Bhawani are being finalised or issued. The opening of the food court in Thejaswani in 2008 gave some relief to the techies but it was short lived as several outlets like Mothers Kitchen, Paapa Pancho & the Chinese food joint shut shop following allegations of mismanagement and poor quality food.
The report is not surprising looking at the comments and discussions going on in websites like My Technopark and Technopark Today. The quality and pricing of food has been a major issue for the last several years. Going by the comments, Rangoli seems have mastered the art of serving cooked worms and roasted cockroaches on a regular basis to the techies. There are also reports of techies getting rotten (stale) chicken from Chick King; stapler pin in elayappam from Rangoli; ice cold masala dosa and uppuma which taste like fevicol from Spice Malabar.
The very fact that Dominos refused permission for audit shows that they have got something to hide and feared being exposed. While smoking is banned inside the campus, there is open sale of cigarettes in Food Court (Thejaswani). Food items in Technopark are exorbitantly priced. Most places do not give back the change especially if paid by food coupons. The techies also have to face humiliation and arrogant behaviour from the people who manage these places.
Note: We contacted the Technopark CEO regarding this report. We are waiting for his response and will update the story as we get the same. We hope this audit report will be an eye opener as there are about 30,000 employees in the campus. We also hope that there will be serious action against the offenders.

Lousy food outlets tarnishing image

Express News Service

Last Updated : 22 Oct 2011 11:58:22 AM IST


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Technopark is in the news yet again - and this time for all the wrong reasons. Controversy looms over an audit conducted by Infosys on the food outlets in the Park. According to reports published by some Technopark-based websites, most of the hotels and restaurants have failed the audit test. Though Technopark authorities deny the report, techies demand stern action against the hotels.
The report published in a website says that 18 out of 19 hotels in Technopark have failed the audit. Use of artificial ingredients and unhygienic surroundings are some of the issues that have reportedly come up in the audit.
However, CEO of Technopark Mervin Alexander said that the audit was part of a routine check.  “Every year, the authorities carry out such audits. This time, it was done by Infosys. But no serious issues were raised in the audit report. People are circulating false reports on the working of food outlets in Technopark,” he said.
“Only a case of using food after the expiry of ‘best before’ date was mentioned in the report. We will serve notices on such food outlets,” Mervin said.
But the Internet is already abuzz with techies’ protests. “I had a bad experience with Mother’s Kitchen as the food that was served to me (curry) had worms in it. I returned the food and collected my money back,” Ram, working in Technopark, commented.
Another techie Venkitesh wrote, “It’s high time that we techies in Technopark show our unity. No one should have food from any of the hotels for at least one week or two. Only then would these people learn.”
The Technopark-based websites have published some photos which show the pathetic condition of the food on the campus. The photos feature food containing worms, plastics etc.
Back in 2008, a special squad of the City Corporation had raided hotels and canteens on the Technopark campus and seized a large quantity of stale food. Stocks of reused oil were also found. The squad had served notices on these hotels. According to a techie, the Technopark authorities have, however, not taken any action against these hotels.
Again, pricing is another issue that is troubling the techies. The high price and poor quality of food are forcing the techies to opt for hotels outside the Technopark campus.

The New Indian Express yesterday, published an article, which pretty much exposes how your average politician says No to something when they have to and Yes to the same thing later on and vice versa.

http://expressbuzz.com/topic/endosulfan-tormentor-now-in-saviour’s-clothing/269553.html

Endosulfan: Tormentor now in saviour’s clothing

Kalathil Ramakrishnan First Published : 28 Apr 2011 02:02:59 AM IST Last Updated : 28 Apr 2011 09:55:03 AM IST

KASARGOD: It's an irony of sorts. The LDF and the CPM, now pushing for a ban on endosulfan with agitations, a hunger stir and a hartal, had over 11 years back crushed with brute force a stir against the use of the pesticide in the farflung villages of the district. The state was then ruled by the LDF with E K Nayanar as the Chief Minister.

On December 22, 1999, CPM men attacked a group of youngsters in Bovikkanam who were taking out a peaceful march to the office of the Plantation Corporation of Kerala (PCK) in protest against the aerial spraying of endosulfan. They beat up the youths telling them that if endosulfan was not sprayed on the PCK plantations, cashew crops would dry up and, consequently, the workers, most of whom belong to the CITU, would be thrown out of jobs. The incident had hogged media headlines then.

It is true that our rulers in the Government have no time for issues like waste management especially when they have bigger scams like Lottery scam and Email Forward scam.

Our local politicians even discuss Obama, Barcelona and Malta during their campaign speeches but good infrastructure like Public Waste Bins are probably the last thing on their minds!

And our citizenry are supposed to be 100% literate too and are aware that they are supposed to dump waste only in a bin. But then, why do they do what you see below?


What you see is from the entrance to Jawahar Nagar, a posh locality in the Kerala capital, Trivandrum, where many a eminent personality reside and highly unlikely this is been done by the local residents. 

I once saw this dad riding his kid to school holding on to his very old scooter so that it does not fall apart yet managing to throw a bag of waste on a lonely stretch of road...so that is what wifey makes him every morning!


And what you see below is innovative waste disposal ... a scene outside a reputed school near Kowdiar.


All this waste disposal usually happens in the wee hours of the day and as it gets more and more innovative, we will soon be of hearing of Waste Mafia or Waste Scam, in Kerala.

The city of Trivandrum or Thiruvananthapuram in the state of Kerala in Southern India has been facing severe road infrastructure problems for few years now. 


In one of his recent tweets, Tharoor - Member of Parliament from Trivandrum tweeted "Marxists have ruled City Corporation for 40 yrs,whom else can we blame?". Blame is all they all can do. Is anyone doing anything about this mess that throws people off their vehicles into the gutters? 


The commies are no better - every time the media picks on one of those bad roads or bridges, they are quick to stage a drama by tying a few elephants and red flags to a road-side pole, playing a live band and announcing the "inauguration of ABC four-lane bridge" when actually it is just a cover-up hoping to quieten the ordinary citizen and media.

Then there are also internet-based patriots and vandals like Ajay Puppy, Such-Shit Vijayan, Kappa-Sudheesh and so on, who  continue to hide the fact that their city is more like Mars than Barcelona by posting pictures of Kowdiar Road (where despite being a 'model' road, quite a few have actually died) and spreading false propaganda on behalf of many other fanatics indulging in edit-wars on Wikipedia.

Back in September 2007, a tiny bridge called Marapallam was razed down for road widening with an estimated completion time of March 2008. We told ourselves "Oh! 9 months, that would pass by very soon!". Sure, the 9 months did pass by swiftly. But, nothing has changed.

Tonight, as I write, I have just come back home after witnessing a young man, who was thrown off his motorbike because of the uneven terrain and now has a broken leg.

Tonight is a night in 2010. October 2010.


Nothing has changed. The 'crip'-pled Road Projects continue to cripple us in many ways. 

Some of this pathetic truth is here for you to see...a truth that reminds us more of Mars than Barcelona!

Very soon, you will need to learn to swim, coz that is where our roads are heading ... God Bless!!!

What if you and I talked to a few friends over coffee and expressed our dislike for the government which rules your city, state or nation? Would you be arrested? We always thought this was a Democracy?
Cyber Cops in other countries are busy taking pro-active measures running campaigns to reduce internet crime. I thought Cyber Police are also supposed to help reduce crime against children on the Internet or collect statistics to identify problems young girls face on the Internet?

The big question here is, are they just a force to deal with citizens who do not support the government that employs them?

Appreciate your use of technology and "power", but how much of the power was put to use in saving young girls molestation or victimization or to help credit card users against fraud?
I would love to read a news article captioned "55-yr old arrested for possession of pre-teen porn" especially when porn is sold openly in road-side markets. 


If our law enforcers were this swift and timely in action against "criminals" everywhere, I am sure this world would have been a much better place to live in. That is way better than misusing some stately-powers to trouble people who use the Internet to read the news and listen to some music.


Unfortunately, it seems, the law and law enforcers are here only to favor a certain section of society?


Even forwarding a funny mail can lead to cyber crime in the state of Kerala. And everyone who forwards the mail can end up in jail.

Building mega-jails is probably gonna become the next hot investment!

To start with, our Bus Drivers might go on strike if they were denied the right to stop in the middle of the road like you see below: 

And our politicians and law-enforcers will lose the Right of Way privilege they enjoy so much ...
  

Our student unions will go on strike too if the school-kids they supposedly protect are not allowed aerobridge-like access to their school buses ...



Politician-turned-Environmentalists will cry hoarse when they cannot plant trees on the road no more, to check deforestation



The larger so-called reasons are scarcity of land (land is available in downtown Singapore, NY and Bangalore for motorways) and Bars (many of us in Kerala would rather do without wide roads if that means demolishing our precious highway bar stopover). Also, like those in the helm of affairs say "Kerala is a very peculiar state inside Shining India". God ONLY Save God's Own Country.

You and I have been doing the "GO SLOW" for years now! Ideally, these boards should be made permanent structures with a garden around them ... The good news though is that a concerned minister has randomly announced that all roads in the state will be tarred within a short period ... wish the efforts are here to stay ...

Update: The Roads are NOT here to stay! Ok! Tell us something new, ha?

I thought they would stop comin' by, But I see this blog still has curious visitors from Bangalore, Brisbane, Dublin, Balaramapuram, Kumarapuram, Nedumangad etc. Considering that some of these places still do not have proper Internet connectivity and they still keep comin' back, I must not disappoint!

I am sure they are re-visiting this blog to see if their favorite part of the world has finally turned into Mars...nah! You won't be disappointed! We are actually slightly better off than Mars at the time of writing this ... :)

Let's visit MG Road for starters...Looks like with the expertise of some Development NGOs, they have come up with a more efficient and effective way of Parking on busy streets...

This is the new, rising world-class way of parking...maybe we should take lessons from Barcelona?

The Kowdiar-Vellayambalam stretch in the capital has become famous for the wrong reasons - Street Drags!

Being the best and straightest road in the city, the road has now seen several accidents. An outlet of a famous coffee outlet chain being the most popular in the city has come in the limelight rather unfortunately. Reports claim the racers hang out outside the outlet and floor their pedals from there. Sometime back, political activists ransacked the coffee outlet as if they were responsible for the races going on outside. Innocent customers and their vehicles were also damaged in the incident!


In the West, street drags are organized on weekends in quiet residential neighborhoods and have mass followers. The numbers watching may be so huge the cops cannot do much to control the crowds. In Bangalore, a lot of them are on the ring road network. In Kochi, a few years back, boy racers used to hit the island areas where there were a few long lonely stretches.

Drag racing is not a good idea on a stretch lined with residences and footpaths which is a favorite for morning walks.

While many of the accidents on the Kowdiar stretch can be attributed to the drags, there are other reasons for accidents on the particular stretch.

Intersections - There are at least 3-4 intersections on the stretch which are not signalled - Golf Links, TTC, Jawahar Nagar, Raj Bhavan Main entrance Jn etc.

Motorists leaving the gas station near TTC who wanna go towards the Nanthencode side take the easy way out - They cut the one-way to enter the TTC intersection and cross over to the Nirmala Bhavan school road.

Similarly, motorists wanting to go to the gas station near CCD cut across the stretch coming from Vellayambalam coz the entrance to the gas station is away from the intersection. The ideal way should have been to take a u-turn near the Raj Bhavan gate which a lot of our motorists won't risk coz it burns more fuel.


In the case of the pump near TTC, motorists have to ride all the way to the Jawahar Ngr interesection and u-turn if they wanted to go back in the Nathencode, Kowdiar directions (which is actually a bit too much). If proper planning had gone into these, the medians should have been left open to accommodate the gas station traffic.

Also, vehicles going down the road wanting to go towards Christ Nagar school, tend to turn a right (opp the Raj Bhavan main gate) into the Christ Nagar school road which is actually a one way.

Road Alignment - The road takes a sudden bend after the Raj Bhavan gate. Looks like poor alignment. If you stick to the 100+ kmph at the bend you are most likely gonna crash into the median opp the Raj Bhavan wall which is what happened to a friend a few months back. He was not drag racing but taking a swift ride down the road.


The immediate solutions seem to be installing speed breakers along the stretch (which will of course de-beautify the stretch, maybe) and implementing traffic signals.

Cameras can be installed to monitor traffic and repeat offenders.

You cannot stop the youth from visiting their favorite coffee shop! Neither can you stop motorists from filling up their gas tanks!

The next time you survive a pothole, call 1800 425 7771 and let them know you just did come out of a crater and you are about to enter the next one!

The PWD is launching the service this week so citizens can raise a complaint about the local pothole(s) and have the complaint attended to within 48 hours by the concerned engineers. Also, as part of this scheme, all concerned engineers would be given mobile phone connections for effective implementation.

Pretty cool! It should not be too hard to make a call to the above number on roads which resemble the moon, you will have enough time when negotiating the craters which will bring your car's speed down but just don't get booked for talking on the phone while driving!

Note: English is a funny language and you need to have an OPEN MIND to be able to take it in the right sense. Unfortunately, that is not the case with many of our readers! After a series of discussions with bloggers and members of the community, we have decided to edit and remove certain excerpts on this blog which refers to any particular cities, communities or individuals and which probably hurts sentiments of people who are working very very hard for the progress of their cities or communities and to see their cities Rise ;). 
Again, sadly, the truth remains and let us all try to change that!
Sad but True! Are we not tired talking about 'mega' stuff like ports, malls, research institutions & technology parks here? They will all come, surely, but rather slowly. That is the Kerala model of development and the common complaint is that it gets painfully slower in this part of the state.


What this capital city needs urgently along with other parts of the state is good infrastructure. I mean, hey who is gonna invest in your city if we do not have the basic infrastructure in place? That includes not just roads and other public infra, but social infrastructure too.


The other day, I was told by this development freak and a senior and leading businessman about why things don't just fall in place in this city. His explanation was "there is nobody to vouch for this city, most influential people & politicians here are from other parts of the state". How very true!


Wherever you are, you are the taxpayer and you expect returns. At least a smooth ride to work? That ride to work is something that could make or break your day?


I wake up every morning "Oh Lord, tell me which route I should take to work today? The one with real roads but too many buses parked in the middle of the narrow road or the crater-ridden roller coaster ride or how about that road which reminds me of step farming?"


We are moving to PrimeTimeCurry shortly, this will talk about everything from curry, sushi and tofu to our Sami, Jap and Mexican friends and maybe even our personal lives. There is a large world out there and having seen quite a bit of it, it is time to think global and not let our brains shrink.


See you there!

PS: All Blog Photos will be shortly uploaded to Flickr or the like and the link pasted here. Also, IBN Citizen Journalist and Metro Manorama links will be shortly up here. Thanks for your time!

I am just back after spending Onam in my hometown in the Central Travancore and I have to say we have some very very bad roads! After more than 300kms of smooth surfaces, this is what I had to endure in the last few days.
Marappalam - Pattom Rd.
Downhill from Kumarapuram
Akkulam - NH Bypass Rd.
Ulloor - Akkulam Rd.
NH Bypass - Poonthi Rd.
Somewhere near Karamana

These are shots of road and traffic conditions from Trivandrum, dating back to maybe even 2006. In 2009, not much has changed around here, a few traffic lights and diversions are the only marked difference one can see. Otherwise, things have gotten worse especially down on the road, with all the digging up in the name of drinking water supply. Most roads leading to the city's favorite employer - Technopark, are either dug up or too narrow with too many bus stops.


What this city needs is basic infrastructure everywhere. Instead of emphasizing mega projects which in the current scenario may never see the light of day, administrators should concentrate on improving basic infrastructure.




You do not have to write essays for constructive criticism. It is quite simple. Even a layman knows that you need tar to fill potholes. I wish someone did something about it.


Meanwhile, enjoy the Pictures and open your eyes to Reality.

The Good, Bad, Ugly, Old and New!




These are pictures of places that have not really changed - be it 2005, 6, 7, 8 or 2009! If anyone is interested in yearly versions of these spots, please send me an email.
