With an eye witness experience i can state that Neither "Vicharavedi  nor Sargavedi  failed to help or promote female writers. Lana - i have no comments.
 Also consider the % of female writers to male writers. If more and more women come up to the the lime light, both Vicharavedi and Sargavedi will support them and promote them.

സമാധാനപരമായി ജീവിക്കുന്ന മലയാളികളില്‍ വര്‍ഗ്ഗീയവിഷം തളിക്കുന്ന വെള്ളാപ്പള്ളി താമസിയാതെ ഒറ്റപ്പെടും. ഇങ്ങനെയുള്ള ഇനമൊന്നും ശ്രീനാരായണ ഗുരുവിന്‍റെ നാട്ടില്‍ തഴച്ചു വളരില്ല.

ഇങ്ങനെ വേണം നേതാക്കള്‍. തത്വങ്ങള്‍ പോയി തുലയട്ടെ. അല്ലെങ്കില്‍ ന്യായം കണ്ടു പിടിക്കാനാണൊ വിഷമം.
കേരളഠെ വിവിവരമില്ലാത്തവരുടെയും വര്‍ഗീയക്കാരുടെയും ഭ്രാന്താലയമാക്കി മാറ്റരുത് സാറെ. നാളെയും നിങ്ങള്‍ കേരലത്തില്‍ ജീവിക്കെണ്ടവരാണു. അതു മറക്കരുത്.

Vasudev is telling the truth. There are no differnce between Anezhthu or penazhthu (Men writing or female writing). If there 10 male writers there are only 3 female writers, that percentage difference is only there. If the lady come forward to lead any lityerary organization as president or secretary they are most welcome {lease do not make much hue and cry and fuss over it. Here in literary world ladies as much much favoured. Even if they are few, they get much importance and prominence. Their work will appear in top of the publication and remain there for time flashing with colorful photos. Under their work you also will see much appreciation or congratulation remarks. Just observe my dear friends from all genders and find the truths in real way without beating the bush around. Whether men or women the truth must prevail. Congratulaion to all the writers regardless gender. All down trodden writers must be considerd. The quality of the work should be considerd. This is just remarks. please do not give much attention to spelling or sentence structure. You can correct and read yourself.

These are all usual things happening every where in USA and in India also. Look at the Madani's case how many years he was in Coimbatore Jail and now again in Bangal;ore Jail waiting for trial. The days are fixed or postponed not based on many Associations or organization members conveniences to assemble in front of the judges. chamber or in in the court. The cases are not determined based on the musicle power of the people or the organization. That is not justice or justice for all. Try and fight for all the people's justice regardless of faith, religion, creed and nationality. OK

പക്ഷെ കേരളത്തിലെ ക്രിസ്ത്യാനികള്‍ അവസരവാദികള്‍ ആയതിനാല്‍ (സക്കറിയയൊടു കടപ്പാട്) ഇക്കൂട്ടരോടു കൂടി സ്ഥിതി മാറ്റി കൂടായ്കയുമില്ല.

There is not much sense in blaming Sri. Vasudev. When പെണ്ണ് എഴുത്ത് ഫോറം  was hosted by Lana, many learned men  advised women writers to boycott it. I too was against it. But the women writers ignored me and eliminated me and went ahead and went to Lana meeting.
Don't blame men for women's  slavery.

This is how America is being shamed by these fundamentalists in USA. Once it was called MODERN. See the fate now. India looks better now a days Indian.

http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/30/us/polygamist-flds-warren-jeffs-update/index.html

Watch an encore presentation of "This is Life with Lisa Ling: Children of the Prophet," Saturday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. ET/PT or watch the episode right now on CNNGo.

(CNN)Oct 1 - 2015 It's hard to imagine that a convicted child rapist would be allowed to lead a church from prison, but that's exactly what's going on with Warren Jeffs.

Jeffs leads a polygamist sect known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It gained worldwide attention in 2006 when authorities accused Jeffs of sexual offenses against girls he took as wives. At one point Jeffs disappeared, prompting the FBI to put him on its 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list until he was captured.

In 2008, authorities raided the church's sprawling Texas ranch. Police removed more than 460 children from the property, including mothers under 18 years old. Authorities seized and shut down the ranch last year.

Eventually, Jeffs was convicted in 2011 of "sexual assault" and "aggravated sexual assault" of two girls ages 12 and 15. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years.

Exclusive: Jeffs' children allege sexual abuse

The FLDS broke away from the mainstream Mormon church more than a century ago because its members refused to renounce polygamy.

The church allegedly exercises control over the adjacent towns of Colorado City, Arizona, and Hildale, Utah -- an area informally known as Short Creek. Other enclaves exist in Mancos, Colorado; Boise City, Oklahoma; Custer County, South Dakota; and a Canadian community known as Bountiful, British Columbia.


FLDS leaders seldom speak with the news media and did not respond to CNN's multiple requests for comment on this story.

So, what's the status of FLDS today? Several key issues continue to play a role in the church's future:

'Seed bearers' and ritualistic sex

Although day-to-day leadership of the church is run mostly by Jeff's brother, Lyle Jeffs, Warren Jeffs actively directs church matters from prison, said Sam Brower, a private investigator who's been closely following FLDS activities for 10 years.

Brower's New York Times best-selling book "Prophet's Prey" inspired a documentary of the same name, which debuted at this year's Sundance Film Festival. He played a key role in the FBI's investigation of Jeffs' and his eventual conviction.

First obtained by the Salt Lake Tribune, a child custody petition filed in a St. George, Utah, juvenile court by Lyle Jeffs' estranged wife Charlene Jeffs describes a group of followers called "seed bearers." "A seed bearer is an elect man of a worthy bloodline chosen by the Priesthood to impregnate the FLDS woman," according to Charlene Jeffs' petition. Under a new doctrine, "FLDS men are no longer permitted to have children with their multiple wives. That privilege belongs to the seed bearer alone," the petition said. "It is the husband's responsibility to hold the hands of their wives while the seed bearer 'spreads his seed.' In layman terms, the husband is required to sit in the room while the chosen seed bearer, or a couple of them, rape his wife or wives," according to the document.

Utah juvenile court records are not usually available to the public, so it's unknown if anyone filed documents disputing any details in Charlene Jeffs' petition, or the veracity of the petition's allegations. Lyle Jeffs eventually agreed to share custody of their two teen children with Charlene Jeffs -- the Salt Lake Tribune reported -- with the children living with their mother.

Roy Jeffs: Why I left my father's church

Brower said he was able to confirm similar reports of "seed bearers" through his own sources. "It's ritualistic procreation," Brower said, "performed on a ritualistic bed-slash-altar." As part of this new system, Warren Jeffs has withheld any relationships between husbands and wives, Brower said. Any touching between spouses outside rituals like these, even a simple handshake, can now be considered adultery in the church.

When asked about his sources for this information, Brower would only say he didn't want to violate confidences. "I'm 100% satisfied as a private investigator that it exists," he said.

There has been no response to CNN's multiple attempts to connect with an FLDS representative to get their side of the story.

A convicted child rapist still leads the church ....

Good news that they won a legitimate argument in the Court. What is more important for those who uphold the expensive display is to  obey the Ten Commandments. Impossible for them or anyone in the materialistic US. Also, Jesus himself compressed the Ten Commandments into" Love your Neighbour as thyself"  the most significant. Why they cause conflict without adhering to Jesus s new message for loving and helping the poor ? Will they tolerate if other religions display theirs too ? Faith and Rationality must coexist. Law  is for Man, Man not for the Law. Thanks, p.p.c.
