Congratulations FOMAA. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to be part of the Team. For the last 2 years, it was a great Journey and I would like to take a moment to Congratulate Mr. Gladson Varghese for his immense efferort in coordinating the team and executing tasks to closure. He was simply Superub in his position!!! It was a great experience for me personally from these individuals esapecially Tresurer, Sebastian Joseph, Korah Abraham, Josey Kurushinkal amd Aniyan George during convention time. Finally congratulate President for his leadeship. Overall convention was a huge sucess, it is not easy to bring more than 3000 people, Several Prominent political leaders,film stars, U.S. Political leaders, Entertainers etc.... under one roof. Ofcourse there may some small Glitches when you run a large convention like this. It is Silly to complain about that. Thanks Again Rajesh Nair RVP- Great lakes Region.

മലയാളം (കവിത) 
(സൂര്യ കെ. ഏഴാം തരം, മാതൃഭൂമി വാരിക ബാലപംക്തി) 

ആദ്യമായ് കേട്ടതു- 
മാദ്യമായ് ചൊന്നതും 
മാധുര്യമൂറുന്ന മലയാളം! 

അമ്മയാം മലയാളം 
നന്മയാം മലയാളം 
നാവിലെ തേനാകും‌ മലയാളം! 

മാറ്റും തമസ്സിനെ 
പോറ്റും മനസ്സിനെ 
വെട്ടം പരത്തുന്ന മലയാളം 

വള്ളത്തോളാ, ശാനും 
ഉള്ളൂരും കുഞ്ചനും 
പാടിപ്പറത്തിയ മലയാളം 

തുഞ്ചൻ വളർത്തിയ 
ശാരിക പാടിയ 
നേർ‌വഴി നേരുന്ന മലയാളം! 

നാവേറെ ചൊല്ലട്ടെ 
വാനോളം പൊങ്ങട്ടെ 
പാടിപ്പുകഴ്തട്ടെ മലയാളം!

Recitation of V C Balakrishna Panicker's "oru vilaapam": http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=s-zFmhZc1hY#t=271

Is there anyway private detectives can investigate this case? The community should join together to raise money for this cause. There are so many organizations in USA claim that they are working for Malayaalees. There are hundreds of churches temples and other religious group talk hours about life after death yet do nothing for the living. Shame on you guys. If this happens to any of our children how would we react? Malayaalees have been living in this country since 1960's and never learned anything from the people and leaders of this country to organize and get our grievances addressed by the authority. It is really pathetic. What is FOAMA, FOKKANA and WORLD MALAYALEE COUNCIL doing for Malayaalees? Boycott these organizations.

ജാതിയും മതവും ഉപേക്ഷിച്ചു ഒന്നിച്ചു പ്രവർത്തിക്കാൻ പറ്റാത്ത സാഹചര്യം മലയാളിക്ക് വിധിയായിട്ടുണ്ട്. കുറഞ്ഞപക്ഷം, വർഗ്ഗീയത ഇല്ലെന്നു പറയാന്മാത്രം, ഇത്തവണ നേതാക്കന്മാരെ തിരഞ്ഞെടുത്തുതു നല്ലകാര്യം. ഒരു പിളർപ്പ് തൽക്കാലം ഒഴിവാക്കി. എന്നാൽ അതു തുടരുകയില്ല എന്നുതന്നെ കാണുന്നു. 'അച്ചായാൻ കളി' തന്നെ കാരണം. പള്ളിമീറ്റിങ്ങു കളിൽപ്പെട്ടു തലയെണ്ണം കുറയാതിരിക്കാൻ, ദിനങ്ങളും, മാസങ്ങളും, വർഷങ്ങളും ചികഞ്ഞുനോക്കി ആ സമയങ്ങൾ ഒഴിവാക്കി ഇലക്ഷൻ ഉണ്ടാക്കാൻ കിണയുന്നത് അതുകൊണ്ടാണ്. മതത്തിനുള്ളിൽ പിന്നെയും പിരിവുകൾ വേറെ! കത്തോലിക്കർ തന്നെ എത്ര തരം! ശ്രേഷ്ഠരായ വേറെയും ചിലർ ക്രിസ്ത്യാനികളിൽ പരസ്പരം കൂട്ടു ചേരാതെ നില്ക്കുന്നു.
വിഘടിച്ച മലയാളിയെ ഹിന്ദു ഉണ്ടാക്കുന്നതും ഇതേ ജാതി വെച്ചു തന്നെയാണ്. മഹാബ്രാഹ്മണനും, കൂടിയ ജാതിയിൽപ്പെടുന്ന ഹിന്ദുവും കുറഞ്ഞവനും പരസ്പരം വെറുക്കുന്നു. ജാതിയിൽ കൂടിയവരായി നടിച്ചു തലപൊക്കി നടക്കാൻ വേണ്ടി 'കേരള ഹിന്ദു'വിനെ ഉണ്ടാക്കി അവിടെക്കി ടന്നു അടികൂടുന്നു. സായിപ്പിന്റെ കരിവേപ്പിലകളായ ഇവന്മാരുടെ കളികണ്ടു സായിപ്പും ചിരിക്കയാണ്!  സായിപ്പും മദാമ്മയും വന്നു സെക്രട്ടറിയും പ്രസിഡണ്ടും കളിക്കാം എന്നു പറഞ്ഞാൽ ഇവന്മാർക്കെല്ലാം വളരെ സന്തോഷവുമാണ്! എല്ലാവരും അവർക്കെ വോട്ടു ചെയ്യൂ. എന്തൊരു തമാശ!

If money used to win elections, it is is corruption, FOMAA Election commessioners need to investigate this. If you are willing to investigate, we can provide you the proof.

Most of the people must have gotten bottles with water in it and this parent must have gotten only water bottles and that is injustice.
Binu Joseph, Philadelphia, PA 2014-07-01 11:31:44 News
Mr. Thomas Koshy, You said it and I totally agree with you. 
I was personally involved and was the in-charge of the Thursday's cultural program by FOMAA member associations and the local performers from Northeast region. Myself along with couple of our cultural committee members of the event literally spent days and days of planning and hard work to make the show successful. I am very glad that the event went very well. We got lot of appreciations and wishes from the performers as well as from the audience. The only complaint I heard is, from one parent of a local performer about they didn't get a water bottle!! And this person was busy taking pictures with the celebrities and guests until 11:00 pm !! Later I came to know from the text messages I received, that he was trying to make that water thing a big issue.. (I even got messages from the guys who even not came to the show!!) I really do not know what I had to do with their water bottle.. 

Anyway, planned it for 7:00 pm and the performers, MCs, stage crew and the sound & light system crew, all were ready by sharp 7:00 pm, but have to wait for the crowd. As you said, Mr. Thomas Koshy, all those who are complaining now about the program delays, I challenge them to prove, if they were in the place where they supposed to be, at the right time. Anybody can sit relaxed and complain about anything, but you need real leadership and courage to conduct an event in a mass way. They don't go out of their comfort zone and only thing they know is just complaining.  

There might have been some flaws happen here and there, but in overall execution, this was one of the well organized convention.  
Thomas Koshy 2014-07-01 08:25:36 News
Stop complaining. Look at the good part of it. We all have a tendency to complain and somehow we get some sort of sadistic pleasure out of it. It is not easy to put together a show of this magnitude, bringing together some 3,000 people from all across USA and from all walks of life, of different tastes and attitude. If some of the events did not start on time, we all are responsible for it. We are well-known for showing-up late and without the audience how could the organizers and performers can start the program. A delay in starting one program will have a chain reaction to the next program which will also run late. The people who worked behind deserve a big round of applause for their commitment and hard work, spending their time, money and effort. Talking about the food, yes it wasn't hundred percent to the expectations of many, but that was not case of food at the banquet and business lunch. Let us look at the positive side of the event; and learn from any short-comings for future guidance.
