Air Kerala services to be launched soon in state: Chandy

Kochi: The Kerala government will soon launch domestic services of its proposed airline 'Air Kerala' for fulfilling the mandatory requirement of the country's civil aviation norm stipulating five year domestic operations before international flight services, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said Friday.

'Though we have approached the union government for a relaxation in this norm, we are yet to get a reply from them in this regard. However, we have decided to go ahead with the project and launch a domestic service with a small aircraft connecting airports with in the state,' said Chandy at a face to face session with the NRKs at the Global NRK Meet that he had inaugurated earlier in the day.

Answering to a query from a NRK who sought subsidy on air tickets in Gulf sector, he said that Air Kerala project would be successfully implemented like the Cochin International Airport project and it would be beneficial to NRKs.

On another suggestion from a NRK that an education cell should be started exclusively for the NRKs to guide students who are willing to pursue higher studies in Kerala, Chandy said that the government would take all necessary steps to set up an education cell to help them.

Considering repeated pleas from NRKs and the general public that the new tax assessment for residential buildings was unfair, he said that the government had decided to put the new method on hold and would take a decision after thorough perusal.

State Labour Minister Shibu Baby John said that the state government would take all steps to provide certification to those NRKs who have acquired skills in respective jobs after being in service for many years.


When Kerala GovernmentS  ( UDF  AND  LDF  )  alternatively  could  not  manage  KSRTC  ( GOVT MANAGED  BUS SERVICE )  and earn profit what they are going to do with Airline service, First let them show their management efficiency with KSRTC, losing one,
 then, thereafter extent  your management efficiency, further. You are utter failure in managing and running a public transport system, bad idea for your new venture, People of Kerala disagree with your project airline service......

Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirthaji’s Main Ashram : "Narayanashrama Tapovanam"

The word 'Ashram' (in Sanskrit) stands for an abode of learning or education. It is a pity that even after 50 years of independence; many of us are prone to associate constricted religiosity with the word and dispose of the institutions under such name as engaged in some sectarian practices. Of course, it is only a corollary of the widespread ignorance with which we often stamp our great Bharatiya (Indian) culture as 'Hindu Religion'.

More than the theoretical knowledge of different subjects, education in our country always meant man-making -- purification, fortification and transformation of personality in the holy association of the Teacher, so that the student would become fit to course victoriously through the vicissitudes of life and attain fulfillment.

And Ashrams were the institutions imparting such education. The most important factor underlying the legendary greatness of ancient Bharat was these honored seats of learning - the Ashrams - where the saintly Teacher…

The Upanishadic culture is the culture of our country. The training given to the citizens of Bharatham to live this Sanatana Dharma is called Hinduism. Bharatham is a Spiritual country. BHA means Knowledge and ratham is one who lives, hence Bharatham means a country where people are living in knowledge. Modernisation, Globalisation , our political parties, our Rulers, our system, our education, parents, new generation, media, our dress code, blind imitation of western countries and many more causes of this. Science and technology is boon for good people, where demonic citizens take advantage and exploit these benefits into criminal activities, we had experience since Atom was mis-used, now the demonic activities is continuing.
Rulers keep open their eyes and ears open and …
