Nature is the mother of human being
not the father of destruction ;
Nature is for our health,
and also for our wealth
Humanistic approach to nature
is pathetic, pathetic and pathetic.
Dawn of human, vein of human
blossoms of human morning , is nature,
Eradication of nature is more,
activated than destruction of Poverty.
Nature produces the life of human being;
Human being produces the destruction of nature
Nature gives breath to lives;
lives give death to nature.
Superior of human is nature,
but the ominous of nature is human.

After a long time, our Molly wood film industry has acquired a new face. It has captured trade in all areas of life , be it human relation,food,and other harsh realities of life. The entry of so many new young directors had made a tremendous change in fields of script writing, like in ‘Traffic’ by Rajesh Pillai, ‘chaappakurishu’ by Sameer Thahir, ‘22 female kottayam’ and ‘salt n pepper’ by Aashiq Abu, which are revolutionised the molly wood industry.
New comers and their movies are given a hearty welcome with great applause. Their contribution to our film industry is really valuable. As the big budget superstar movies era get flopped in the box office such as cobra, Casanova, and the low budget movies starring new faces are greatly accepted by the common people.
People are also ready to accept these new changes. Because they have got bored by the repeating theme of the stories. Now they like the simple stories such as salt n pepper, chaappakurish, traffic etc…And they also like the new style of script writing and directing. Nowadays, the people also reject the highly exaggerated movies having heroes with extra ordinary power , which is unbelievable in our modern world.. They need the stories of our contemporary life, which is interesting and at the same time need a critical approach.
But it is also a fact that, the majority of the young people, came to know about the movies like ‘Adaminte makan Abu’ and ‘vellaripravinte changathi’, which contain great moral values only after it received national and state awards.
Let us hope for more and more experiments in our film industry, which will make us proud….
All were left...
Rude eyes everywhere…
They all were happy, seeing -
Blood squeezing out from my heart.
They applied chilly powder on my wounds.
Like devils, they laughed at me.
They ran towards me,
In order to fulfill their revenge.
But, they stopped seeing the shining in my eyes.
They were frozen like anything.
The only thing they could give me was curses.
But, all that mixed up in the air because,
Truth was on my part.
I followed my conscious.
I never disobeyed it.
Often, I was on the wrong path.
Still, the punishment for it was simple.
Since, the one who experienced the course of my misdeeds was,
I disliked sharing it.
I received all that happily.
My loses were my own.
My memories- bits of papers…, letters…,
Uncompleted words…, small precious gifts…,
Pictures…, photos…, autographs….
I thought without all these, my life was –
Once all these were lost
I believed that it’s my own death.
Afterwards, new memories came into my life
Again, bits of papers…, letters…,
Uncompleted words…, small precious gifts…,
Pictures…, photos…, autographs….
But, lost is always lost.
Even though, time taught me –
How to live without them?
They remained in the depth of my heart
Breaking my heart often they tried to –
Come out of that dark corner.
I didn’t wept
I didn’t speak too.
Words blocked there in my throat
I murmured myself –
“What you wished was
Cooking was an art I admired .I wished to make so many tasty , smelly food items but the fact is that I don’t know to make anything other than tea & coffee. I used to watch my mom’s cooking but I never tried to learn cooking before. So I decided to learn cooking this vacation. My new decision made my mom happy but later the same decision became a burden for my mom. She was the person who suffered a lot with my experiments. That’s enough as an introduction for my cooking studies, let me talk more about it.
At the first stage I helped my mom in the kitchen .As days passed I became more & more interested in learning & these anxiety made me to decide that I will make food alone. Without learning or knowing much about cooking I decided to cook all by myself .I had so many books which gave many cooking tips & recipies. I took those books & read all those books & finally decided to make cutlet.
The very next morning I took all these books with me & told my pappa to bring some chicken , rusk etc. I got into my kitchen & the first I told my mom to get out of the kitchen. She said to me that she will help me in doing my task but I didn’t allow anyone to enter the kitchen. I started my cutlet making. I made 6 cutlets at first but unfortunately that was a flop. The amount of salt was over in that .I was so sad as my first attempt in cooking became a flop. With that incident I gave up .But my mom compelled me & I decided to make cutlet again.
As a result I again told my pappa to buy the things required for making cutlet. It was a Sunday. I began to do my work. This time it was a success, I made tasty cutlets. This made me confident about my cooking & I decided to do more experiments in cooking.
