With a population of 34.8 million and covering 14 districts and with an area of 38,900 sq.km, Kerala is also one of the most beautiful places on planet earth, as has been listed by National Geographic Traveller magazine as one of the "Top Ten To-Be-Visited places in a lifetime on planet earth". Being a well wisher of the state, I would be the last person to cause any inconvenience to him and the state.

To be at the same time available to the people and govt employees of Kerala, to keep the development agenda in mind, to ensure there is peace, communal amity and an effective, efficient, people friendly, corrupt-free administration in the state is not a joke. Especially when you have people who are among the nation's most highly advanced in terms of literacy, political consciousness and social development, being equated to the state of New York in terms of social development by economists, the expectations from the people are great.

With great authority comes great responsibility !! I am reminded of this great quote from John D Rockefeller,
May Kerala see the best development as never seen over the past six decades and may Kerala grow to great heights under this able, God-fearing and humble bureaucrat. The country needs more of such people.Every right implies a responsibility;Every opportunity, an obligation,Every possession, a duty. - John D. Rockefeller
P.S. : I am sure this writing will prompt him to give his best to the state and its people like never before ..

Edwin Aldrin who was part of the Apollo mission with Neil Armstrong seen walking on the moon surface. It is a "bright windy night" for the US flag on lunar surface (in the Arizonian desert studio) with one left light putting shadow of Aldrin in one direction towards right and another right light putting shadow of flag towards left .. An eternal mystery which NASA never cared to explain or clarify. Any confirmation later of this faux pas in Arizona ? Pic source BBC archives ..
