I believe NRI in this context is non-Indian citizens like American Malayalees. NRIs in Gulf are Indians. They should buy houses in India. But why american citizens buy, build houses in Kerala? What right for them to have it?

ക്രൂരമായ പരിഹാസവും സാമൂഹ്യവിമർശനവും കുഞ്ചൻ നമ്പ്യാരുടെ കാവ്യമാനദണ്ധങ്ങൾ ആയിരുന്നു. എന്നാൽ ഇന്ന് അതൊക്കെ വിസ്മരിക്കപെട്ടുകൊണ്ടിരിക്കുന്നു. പീറ്റർ നീണ്ടൂർ കവിതയിലൂടെ അത് വീണ്ടെടുക്കാൻ ശ്രമം നടത്തിയിട്ടുണ്ട് എന്നുള്ളത് അഭിനന്ദനീയംതന്നെ 

"പത്തുപേരൊത്തീടില്‍ മാവേലിയോര്‍മ്മകള്‍
പത്തിലൊന്നേറിയാല്‍ പൊട്ടിപ്പിളരുന്നു
മാത്രുസംസ്‌കാരത്തിനായ്‌ പിടഞ്ഞീടുന്നു
തങ്ങളില്‍ മുമ്പനായ്‌ ത്തീരാന്‍ കൊതിക്കുന്നു,
പൊങ്ങത്തരങ്ങള്‍ പലതുമേ കാട്ടുന്നു''

പറയാനുള്ള കാര്യം ലളിതമായി പറയുന്നതുകൊണ്ട് കവിതയുടെ സൗന്ദര്യം നഷ്ടപ്പെടുന്നില്ല. എന്നാൽ ആധുനിക കവിത എന്ന് പറഞ്ഞ്‌ ചിലരും, രസതന്ത്ര സമവാക്ക്യംപോലെ മറ്റു ചിലരും കവിത പടച്ചുവിടുമ്പോൾ വായനക്കാരൻ ഏതോ മരുന്ന് മാറി കഴിച്ചു വയറ്റിളക്കം പിടിച്ചവരെപ്പോലെ സ്വയം ശപിക്കുന്നു.

"കള്ളമകന്ന കവിത്വവിശേഷം
തള്ളിത്തള്ളി വരുന്ന ദശായാം 
ഉള്ളിൽക്കപടതയുള്ള ജനങ്ങളുടെ 
ഭള്ളും വിരുതും നിഷ്ഫലമാക്കാം " (സത്യസ്വയംവരം -കുഞ്ചൻനമ്പ്യാർ "

കവിതയുടെ ആലാപനം തുള്ളൽ കവിതകളുടെ ശൈലി ആയിരുന്നെങ്കിൽ നന്നായിരുന്നേനെ.

 തീർച്ചയായും ! 100 സീറ്റ്‌ കിട്ടാത്ത കോണ്‍ഗ്രസ്‌,  15 സീറ്റ്‌ കിട്ടാത്ത സീ പീ എമ്മിനോട് ചോദിക്കാൻ പാടില്ലായിരുന്നു ...30 സീറ്റ്‌ കിട്ടുന്ന മമതയോടോ, മായാവതിയിടോ , മുലായതിനോടോ  പിന്തുണ ചോദിക്കാമായിരുന്നു ...

Well said and understood KERALITE , But you need to reveal your Identity NAME & PLACE
to be ELIGIBLE to make these kind of COMMENTS.

 Poor comment ! People who live in the Gulf Area have to come back at any time ! They know that ! India is not China to live in a one bedroom...They worked hard... saved money...send to the home land... helped the home land grow...ready to come back at any time...made their dream house...please accept the good things they gave to their home land...gave workers good salary...donations to to poor people...rehabs...acceptances and awards to good writers...Respected teacher, we adore you...but please...please...accept the good things they did...every progress you see in Kerala are the blood and sweat of the poor kerala workers in foreign countries...otherwise Kerala will be worse than Bihar...the houses are for them to live when they come back...

well said.
The government should impose high taxes on houses that are not inhabited. Also, government should not allow those settled in foreign countries to build houses in Kerala. Houses are only for those who live in Kerala. It is not a luxury item for the rich NRIs to show their wealth to the poor people of Kerala

Gujarat is not just Ahammadabad, where everyone praise the glory of development. Need to consider the entire state of Gujarat, otherwise it is not fair judgement. People in Jamnagar area still struggling for water. People of Gujarat are very hardworking and committed, otherwise they would not have accepted a Malayaalee Dr.Kurian (Amul Kurian) as their leader and proved to the world how india could sustain without their help. 

Remember, the wisdom of Dr.Kurian and Commitment of people of Gujarat made this in reality. 

Dr. Kurian could have become the chief minister, or even the prime minister, but he just focused on what was important for the country. Did Modi ever utter a word of appreciation even today whan he is about to take the national stage? Modi is an able leader, but his leadership lacks appreciation and respect for other human beings. During Atal Bihari Vajpayee's time, India made significant progress, but also messed up the relationship with Pakistan. They Started linking the roads, congress continued.

Congress failed to communicate the progress they made, If Dr.ManmohanSingh was not the prime minister, India would have suffered during the financial meltdown. PanchayathiRaj, Freedom of Information Act,Lokpal Bill, congress and UPA  created the fundamental structures in place. During the last 20 years, India made significant progress.

 Progress comes with corruption, it is unfortunate, but unavoidable. Even countries like USA is not an exception. Just see how the unemployment compensation and foodstamp programs are abused by few. But these are the programs supported the country during struggle. 

Beyond corruption, India faces the threat of disparities between the rich and the poor. Naxal movement is the danger country is facing today. It is happening because with current living conditions, poor will not be able to survive. If corporates like Reliance control every natural resource of India, more people will join the force on the other side. India will only shine when everyone get a fare share.

My point is, start recognizing the good part, create a space where people could respect and appreciate each other. Our views are just views, no one is right or wrong. We need someone who will lead this nation to new destinations who will appreciate and respect everyone in the society. 

I am sure, vice people of India will select able leaders in this election. Hope and pray for the best for our motherland.

The so called "sabha" is built on ordinary people like Prof:Joseph & his family .when in need if the Sabha discarded him he should leave the Sabha as well.

Condolences to the bereaved family and prayers to the departed soul. Thanks for Joseph Padannamackal's flashback about Simson family so that people like me know the Simson and Rosamma very well.
