 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. The youngest sister was married to Thommen, younger brother of Abraham and stayed at Kuruvinal Kunnel, ie. The two sisters of Pallattu family were married by two brothers of Ambara Moolechalil family.Thus the two families came into existence. The Kuruvinal Kunnel Thommen didn't have sons for two -three generations and as a result their family asset remained the same.

ऊची दुकान फीके पकवान!

रायपुर दिनांक 4 अक्टूबर 2010

ऊँची दुकान फीके पक वान!
कभी बच्चो को परोसे जाने वाला मध्यान्ह भोजन तो कभी होटल, रेस्टोरेंट से खरीदी गई खाने की सामग्री तो कभी किसी समारोह में वितरित होने वाले भोजन के जहरीले होने और उसको खाने से लोगों के बीमार पडऩे की बात आम हो गई हैं। अभी बीते सप्ताह शनिवार को नई राजधानी में सड़क निर्माण कंपनी के मेस का खाना खाकर कई मजदूर बीमार हो गये। कइयों की हालत गंभीर थी। मेस को हैदराबाद की बीएससीपीएल इंफ्रास्ट्रक्चर लिमिटेड कंपनी चला रही थी। सबसे पहला सवाल यह उठता है कि जब कोई कंपनी या समारोह में इतने व्यक्तियों का खाना एक साथ पकता है उसे लोगों में बांटने के पहले जांच क्यों नहीं होती? खाना बनाने से पहले यह क्यों नहीं देखा जाता कि जहां खाना बनाया जा रहा है वहां का वातावरण पूर्ण साफ सुथरा है या नहीं। स्कूलों में बच्चों को वितरित होने वाले मध्यान्ह भोजन में भी कुछ इसी तरह का होता आ रहा है। बच्चो को जो खाना बनाने के लिये कच्चा माल पहुँचता है उसका उपयोग करने से पहले उसकी सही जांच पड़ताल नहीं होती फलत: उसमें कीड़े मकोड़े व अन्य जीव जन्तु भी मिल जाते हैं। अक्सर समारोह व शादी …

काले धूल के राक्षसों का उत्पात...क्यों खामोश है प्रशासन

छत्तीसगढ़ की राजधानी रायपुर के औद्योगिक क्षेत्रों-उरला, सिलतरा, सोनढोंगरी,भनपुरी से निकलने वाली काली रासायनिक धूल ने पूरे शहर को अपनी जकड़  में ले लिया है .यह धूल आस्ट्रेलिया के औद्योगिक क्षेत्रों से निकलने वाली धूल से 18 हजार गुना ज्यादा है.
यहां करीब तीन दर्जन उद्योग ऐसे हैं जो चौबीसों घंटे धूल भरी आंधी उगल रहे हैंं ,जिसपर किसी का कोई नियंत्रण नहीं ह्रै. नियंत्रण है तो भी वह कुछ दिनों में छूटकर आसमान और धरती दोनों पर कब्जा कर लेते हैं.
चौकाने वाली बात यह है कि वायु प्रदूषण से सबसे ज्यादा मौत भारत में हुई है. यह संख्या चीन से ज्यादा है.प्राप्त आंकड़ों के अनुसार भारत में वायु प्रदूषण से जहां 1640 लोगों की मौत के मुकाबले चीन में वायु प्रदूषण से मरने वालों की संख्या (1620 ) ज्यादा है. यह आंकड़े हम यहां इसलिये पेश कर रहे हैं ताकि रायपुर को स्मार्ट सिटी बनाने के लिये इसपर नियंत्रण पाना हमारी प्राथमिकता होनी चाहिये. वायूु प्रदूषण के बगैर स्मार्ट सिटी,डिजिटल सिटी बनाने का सपना पूरा हो पाना कठिन है. आज स्थिति यह है कि एक स्थान पर कालेधूल को हटाया जाता है तो शहर का दूसरा भाग कालिख पुतवा लेत…

किस्मत बदलती है,दाना अब खुशहाल लेकिन...!

मनुष्य जीवन के बारे में बहुत सी बाते कहीं गई हैं-कहा जाता है कि इंसान पैदा होते ही अपने कर्मो का सारा फल अपने साथ लेकर आता है. यह भी कहा जाता है कि जिसके किस्मत में जो हैं उसे मिलकर ही रहेगा. यह भी कहा गया है कि मनुष्य को अपने कर्मो का फल भी इसी जन्म में भोगना पड़ता है.हम जब ऐसी बातों को  सुनते हैं तो लगता है कि कोई हमें उपदेश दे रहा है या फिर ज्ञान बांट रहा है, किन्तु जब हम इसे अपने जीवन में ही अपनी आंखों से देखते व सुनते हैं तो आश्चर्य तो होता ही है कि वास्तव में कुछ तो है जो सबकुछ देखता सुनता और निर्णय लेता है. यह बाते हम उस व्यक्ति के बारे में कह रहे हैं जिसने पिछले साल पैसे न होने के चलते अपनी पत्नी की लाश को 10 किलोमीटर तक पैदल अपने कंधे पर ढोने के बाद अंतरराष्ट्रीय सुर्खियों में प्रमुख स्थान प्राप्त किया था. ओडिशा के गरीब आदिवासी दाना मांझी की जिंदगी साल भर में अब पूरी तरह बदल चुकी है. उसकी गरीबी अब उसका पीछा छोड़ चुकी है.इसी सप्ताह मंगलवार पांच तारीख को मांझी कालाहांडी जिले के भवानीपटना से अपने घर तक उस होन्डा  बाइक पर सफर करता हुआ पहुंचा ,जिसे उसने शो रुम से 65 हजार रुपये मे…
