M. S. Swaminathan Research Centre
At first, we visited M. S. S. B. G. (M. S. Swaminathan Botanical Garden), where, first of all, we watched a video about the history, aim and motivation of the research centre. M. S. S. R. C. was established in 1988 with its HQ in Chennai. The aim is to help farmers grow the rare types of paddy .They do this by providing them with (1) the seeds of those kinds of paddy and also (2) the information about when and how to cultivate it. The fact that though Waynad can grow many kinds of paddy it…
An Exciting Trip
Ananya Reetha Noble. Class: VII
On the birthday of Kerala, 1st November 2014 in the fine morning at 8:30 we, class VII of Hill Blooms School started our one day trip. We went to M S Swaminathan Research Foundation at Muttil. There, at first we had training. We saw a video about the history of the foundation and one of the staff members explained to us the things we were going to see there. They first took us to the collection of medicinal plants. They told us about various medicinal plants such as Brahmi, Vayambu, Thippali, Kiriyath, Kattarvazha etc., which have rich medicinal values. Then we went around the place. We saw a set of butterflies. I would like to name some, which I liked the most: The Blue Tiger, Common Crow, Common Grass Yellow, Chest Nut Bob…
Robin Williams. 1951- Yesterday.
This is not an obituary. This is only a deeply personal collection of thoughts about an obituary. Me to You. The institution I work for or any individual I am stuck with on this planet is not singularly or collectively responsible for what I am saying. Grief comes topped witha streak of recklessness that most people of goodwill give and take without pointing fingers. That is what I am counting on to wriggle out of all potential gaffe.
One thing I am not all that happy about going to heaven is that I don’t get to choose what I want there. It is kinda predetermined no matter which religion you follow. There is something hopelessly dictatorial about the heaven that is offered by most current versions of Gods and religions.
I always wanted my (own) heaven!
And I wanted Robin…
How beautiful is the world we live!!
with hugetrees and small plants.
with amazing world of flower n ' fruits.
Look at the sky with a smile,
clouds with many shapes.
How much do you see?
As a fish , a bird or an animal.
At night the glitters stars
amazing! amazing! amazing!

Saw Kadal Kadannu Vanna Mathukutty. This guy Ranjith is really a do-gooder. This movie also has the same ‘Malayalis need to think of this’ streak with which he had done Spirit and before that Salt and Pepper. Kerala is no more the land of the educated elite with an image held high by the likes of K. Kelappan, EMS or Achutha Menon. The ethical standards that should have gone up hand in hand with educational success have not only failed to materialize, but what little was there seems to have gone down to the level of north Indian Lallulands. The law of the land is currently just one of the opinions when it comes to traffic rule violations or outright extortion, which may or may not get defended honestly depending on a multitude of variables. Mathukuttis and the NRI microcosm he represents are a fact of life and…

THE RAINY NIGHT
Posted On 2012-10-13 by Arjun Vinod
It rained that night
the rainy night
it chilled that night
in my bed
the thunder cried
it made me fright
my dog has cried
in that shed
i opened my ears
to hear the rain
first i heard a cry of pain
then i heard a moving train
it made a streak in my brain
where the water went
from the skies
its not to the borrows of mice
it seeped through the ground
quenching thirst of the men
the rivers flowed
and people drowned
the gift of gods the lovely rain
giving us gain&pain
