Starting of the first Nano Science related magazine in Malayalam

During an interview for a post of technical officer, I had faced many questions regarding my science journalism training course. This interview also changed my mind and I decided to utilize my expertise in science journalism to bring out a new science magazine in my mother tongue, malayalam.

I have named this magazine as "Kunhan Logam" and expect to hit the market in the new year day(1st january 2011) and comes out in every four months. As its name show, this magazine discusses the "kunhan logam" (small world)for malayalee kids, it is aimed to discuss the basics, new discoveries and events happening in nano science and nano technology.

This magazine targeted the kids interested in science and it helps the children to learn the new science.

It is the first nano science related magazine in Malayalam language and also it is the first kid's nano science related magazine in Malayalam language.

It is planned to bring out the magazine as online (in PDF format)and in printed form completely free for kids and schools, but the printed form will be available after reaching the online subscription and the request of the printed subscription to a certain number.

Here is the online magazine

God sits only in some places and he does not give you anything free

God sits only in some places and he does not give you anything free

“God sits only in some places and he does not give you anything free” this phrase that I got from my life and many of the people believe it. Really I don’t believe in that God when he behaves like human beings or any creatures. I had visited many religious places of many religions not to see the God, but to see how the people believe in their God, I had visited not to seek peace, not to get heaven and not to impress any God, but to see what the people do to impress their God.

The truth I found that people forget their fellow men, and offering money and gold to God, constructing big houses for God and the list is going on. Recently I visited a temple, and there carved on a stone that a minister had spent one crore (10 billion) rupees to reconstruct the temple. But, the people nearby the temple are living in very poor condition; they don’t have enough water facility, housing facility, sanitation and other basic facilities.

I laughed myself when I saw my people were constructing Masjids in a same village because they had been split into groups of same ideology but different leaders. We are offering prayers to impress the God to get heaven, offering money or anything or deposit money in the temple to get something in our life from the God, to make our life easy. Paying money to see the God in temples, and if you are ready to pay more money you can find a place near to God or in front of the queue, or if you are the minister or leader you can see the God alone.

It is true that there is no free lunch, that even the God also would not give you anything free. He gives only when you do things for him, wow, God’s mind is narrow as human mind, and God is similar as human. This is the reason God comes in the form of human and people worshipping human Gods.

A lesson from a bird; dont ever expect love as you love (Short story)

A lesson from a bird

There was a rich man who loves birds so much and he caged more than a dozen beautiful birds with at most care. He had appointed a doctor also to look after those birds and he spent most of his day after business hours to talk and to feed his birds. This made his folks to talk proudly that nobody love birds as he loves them.

But, one day morning this rich man got a letter from the head of that caged birds and it was written like, “ Our dear master, we know that you love us so much and you will do anything for that love also. But, don’t ever expect that we love you as you love us. You know that what will happen if we love you as you love us and have you ever imagined that? But, we expect that you will understand our love towards you not the way you do us and we hope you will understand that you and me are different. Expecting the way as you are doing is expecting a similar person as you. We hope you can understand us as we understand you”.

This made him to understand his love and their love, the next day morning he set them free to their world.

Life has no choice …..

Life has no choice …..

Life, it is beautiful and dynamic. It has not given me any choice when I play it. It happens as it happens, but there is no chance of luck.

When the life offered me the time of finding a spouse, it was left without any choice. Manungoosey, I don’t know how you would react in that situation, but I was totally confused. There are many reasons for my confusion, that, which one I give importance when I select a soul mate, do I want give importance to her beauty, or religion, or caste, or education, or her values, or family status ?. But, my philosophy was that beauty is a trap, and the pleasure from the beauty is ephemeral and it is relative also.

Manungoosey, you know that I give importance to the values that one follows, but I don’t know who comes to my life…I don’t know whether she value the relationships or her prestige or her profession…yes manungoosey I have to leave this to life than expecting the same as I am, expectations brings disappointments always …so the best strategy to enjoy the life is to expect nothing and leave everything to life as it happens.…. and I know that nobody can better understand my mind, but I.

The Most experienced Guide in our family passed away....

The Most experienced Guide in Our family passed away...
Grand Father Ahammed Kutty Haji Thottoli and Grand Mother Thayumma Poovancheeri
It was a calm and happy morning, because my grand father smiled to me in his hospital bed after a two days silence, and he was able to recognize my voice and gestures, but I did not understood and it was not clear what he was telling.
But, in the evening we were worried when we saw his actions that he was in death bed. I saw gloomy faces around him and dark clouds were covering over my head.

I heard a deep breath and his face was wrinkled like smiling, but the people around me and him started to weep, including my mother, she lost her conciousness and felldown. Doctors rushed to his bead and started to check his pulses, after a few minutes they waved thier hands to cover his face, my uncle and grand father(mother's father) closed his eyes and mouth, then tied his lower jaw with a white cloth to his head.

He was morethan 85, when he was dead, and paralyzed for about six months due to the prostate cancer. He was the yeldest and oldest member in my home and in our Thottoli family(puliyamparamba). It was thursday evening and first day of shaabaan. People started to talk that he gone to God on the best day of the year, because of his good deeds and he was present for Jamaath in Masjid for all five prayers.

Death, you are the reason for God….

Death, you are the reason for God….

Manungoosey, I know you may think that why I am writing about death again, because, it is the truth of life and that is why God is alive. Once I written that Death is an unexpected guest, now I can say that when there is no death, people including me will not believe in the existence of God and there would not be any religion.

You know manungoosey, My eyes was filled with tears when I heard the sad demise of a 21 year old friend and it was happened on the first death anniversary of his brother, both of them had lost their life in a bike accident. I became dumb for an hour and lost my control. Manungoosey, have you ever thought about the heart of their mother and her feelings?.....I know that she would have scolded the God and hate him….

Oh…God, really I am very happy to see you, but people and all the religion (that I have understood) are telling me that I should leave my body to see you, I have to die, otherwise I cannot see you. Really I don’t know what is after the death, and really I know nothing about you, God.

Manungoosey, why these people are telling about death when they are talking about God…

Happy days and happy life

Happy days and happy life

Hey manungoosey, you would have thought that I might have been stopped writing when you find nothing for a long days, but, no manungoose, I have not stopped writing. I have been with my family and my mind was not free to write to you.

It is sweet as honey that the time with mother, father and with my little kids, nada and nafeesa. You know that I was at home this time for my third sister’s marriage and all the responsibilities were on my shoulders except financial matters. Manungoosey, here we do not use invitation letters to invite neighbors and village people but personally invite them by visiting their homes, I had visited nearly six hundred homes to invite the people for the reception, I have to invite them whenever I meet them even if I visited their homes, otherwise they would not come, and you know that here in village, neighbours and friends come to help even for serving foods for other guests also.

It was finished with all glory, manungoosey, I should thank God for it. But, I was not free even after this function also. I have to help my mother to carry my grandfather to the bath room and to the toilet when my father was not in home. Because my grandfather was paralyzed after he was caught with the prostate cancer and he need help for everything. It is very sad when one needs help for his basic needs and it is terrible when no one is there to help. Really he is very lucky; otherwise he would not get the acquaintance of us. I don’t know what will be the future of me, when I become old. I expect the good, as I learned it from my father and mother; I have to teach it to my children also. I lost many working days for these things, even though, I am very happy that I was able to do good deeds on that days, when many old people are not getting good treatments from their kin and from the society.
