“I have no boyfriend;’ for you have had five boyfriends, and the one you have now is not your boyfriend.

The above anecdote from Holy Bible is being contextualized and rewritten in the today’s scenario where a good percentage of Bangalore Malayali Christian girls are reliving the life of the Samaritan woman whom Jesus confronts when she came to draw water from the well. The Holy Gospel according to St. John Chapter 4, word-cycles from 1 to 40 narrate the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman.

If we could anticipate the catastrophe – we would be better equipped to handle it

Life is always a blend of both happiness and sorrows as there is a sunlight for a rain and there is a mountain for a valley. When we are obsessed with people and things we are unlikely to foresee the other side of the coin as in the kind of catastrophe that could occur other way around. If we could anticipate emotionally the misfortune that is about to hit us we will be better equipped to handle when it really hits us with a sudden turnaround of things.

An innocent girl being forced to wear a cruel-mask

The gender she belongs to and the unprecedented atrocities against her flock make otherwise sweet girl to act stubborn and to be looked cruel. Annamika is the epitome of the slogan ‘Survival of the Fittest’ and teaches us that a girl should find ways to move forward in the patriarchal society which looks down woman as an object where her subjectivity is being always challenged and at stake.

Life of common man always crippled by government’s inaction

The mantra of Oommen Chandy led UDF government is ‘with great speed more distance.’ But on the contrary here the life of a common man is moving at snail's pace, this is the how the slogan is actually translated into the life of common man. The life of a common man is always torn asunder and his life is always at troubleshoots when the government which is supposedly to work for his well being is always in quiescence.

Mass Contact Programme of Oommen Chandy just a political game

The much hyped mass contact organized by Shri.  Oommen Chandy takes us back to the period of old kingly rule where the King used to meet his people (praja) on special occasions and seeking their needs, he fulfilled their wishes in terms of money and material goods. In a democratic system of government, it is not the way that the government should function, when we have a well established administrative hierarchy and various departments to look into the matters concerning the people and implement solutions.
