 A family with its own tradition and values,started many decades ago from a place called EdamattomPallattu in Kottayam districtin Kerala.They have a well settled position not only in India but also abroad. The members of this family are not only in different parts of India but also in many developed countries like United States of America ,Rome,South Arabia multiplying the family's honour and fame with their professional expertise in the field of education,politics , journalism etc. In this note we go through a rough idea of the family history. Since we don't have any knowledge about many members of the old generations, we regret to skip off the details about them.Now with the help of the eldest member of this family ie J M Thomas (Thomachen)of Kottayam,we get a picture about the members of our family and how it branched.We belong to Edamattam Pallattu family. The family starts with two avakashi sisters of Pallattu family of Edamattom , in Kottayam . The eldest sister was married to Abraham of Ambara Moolechalil who stayed at Pallattu family Edamattom.

उम्र कैद की सजा पर से संदेह खत्म! क्या फांसी की सजा पर भी सुको सज्ञान लेगी?

याकूब मेनन को फांसी  से पहले व बाद से यह बहस का विषय है कि फांसी दी जानी चाहिये या नहीं अभी भी इसपर बहस जारी है लेकिन इस बीच उम्र कैद का मामला भी सुर्खियों में है कि आखिर उम्र कैद होती है, तो कितने साल की? यह माना जाता रहा है कि उम्र कैद का मतलब है- चौदह साल जेल लेकिन अब यह स्पष्ट हो गया है कि उम्र कैद चौदह साल नहीं बल्कि ताउम्र है याने अपराधी की जब तक जिंदगी है तब तक उसे जेल में ही काटनी होगी. छत्तीसगढ के धीरज कुमार, शैलेन्द्र और तीन दोषियों के मामले में याचिका पर सुनवाई के दौरान सर्वोच्च न्यायालय के न्यायमूर्ति टीएस ठाकुर और वी गोपाला गोवड़ा की बेंच ने समाज के एक वर्ग द्वारा फांसी की सजा के विरूद्व अभियान पर टिप्पणी करते हुए कहा की यह वर्ग चाहता है कि फांसी को खत्म कर उसकी जगह आजीवन कारावास की सजा दी जाये तथा स्पष्ट किया कि उम्र कैद का मतलब उम्र कैद होता है न कि चौदह साल. अपराधी जिसे उम्र कैद हुई है उसे अपनी पूरी उम्र सलाखों के पीछे बितानी होगी. इससे यह तो संकेत मिलता है कि भविष्य में फांसी को खत्म करने पर भी विचार किया जा सकता है. सर्वोच्च अदालत ने अब तक उम्र कैद के संबन्ध में चली…

प्रेम, सेक्स-संपत्ति की भूख ...और अब तो रक्त संबंधों की भी बलि चढऩे लगी!

कुछ लोग तो ऐसे हैं जो मच्छर, मक्खी, खटमल और काकरोच भी नहीं मार सकते लेकिन कुछ ऐसे भी हैं जो हैवानियत की सारी हदें पार कर मनुष्य यहां तक कि अपने रक्त संबंधों का भी खून करने से नहीं हिचकते. इंसान खून का कितना प्यासा है वह आज की दुनिया में हर कोई जानता है क्योंकि आतंकवाद और नक्सलवाद के चलते रोज ऐसी खबरें पढऩे-सुनने को मिल जाती है जो क्रूरता की सारी हदें पार कर जाती हैं. मनुष्य का राक्षसी रूप इस युग में ही देखने को मिलेगा शायद किसी ने कल्पना भी नहीं की होगी. आतंकवाद और नक्सलवाद हिंसा के दो रूप के अतिरिक्त अब रिश्तों के खून का वाद भी चल पड़ा है जो सामाजिक व पारिवारिक मान्यताओं, संस्कृति- परंपराओं का भी खून कर रहा है. नारी जिसे अनादिकाल से अबला, सहनशक्ति और मासूमियत, ममता और प्रेम का प्रतीक माना जाता रहा है उसका भी अलग रूप देखने को मिल रहा है. रक्त संबंध, रिश्ते, सहानुभूति, आदर, प्रेम, बंधन सबको तिलांजलि देकर जिस प्रकार कतिपय मामलों में अबलाओं ने जो रूप दिखाना शुरू किया है वह वास्तव में ङ्क्षचंतनीय, गंभीर और खतरनाक बन गया है. नारी के कई रूप हमें इन वर्षों के दौरान देखने को मिले हैं लेकिन ज…
