Re: [www.keralites.net] Harthaal


Mr. Mini Sekher,
From which angle you see KERALA is a "GOD own country," I had been to kerala tour for 15 days and what I could  find "Kerala is a Goonda own country" People are most idiot,  arrogant and most uncortious, very intolerant, hot tempered, use to use foul language, don't have respect to other state's citizen specially to "North"  Very much allergic to Hindi. In fact it is RACHAS on country , accommodating most anti social elements..
 p.k. agrawal

Dear Friends,
Like bhand, hartal also is to be banned for assuring a peaceful life of the common public. Hartal is a terrorist activity, because it is force on the unorganised public by creating a terrifiing atmosphere deploying goondas by the parties declaring the hartal. It would be worth remembering that all of us including political parties were in full agreement with the idea of banning bhand. The ban essentially has to be extented on to the present day hartal, which obviously has all the evils and anti social elements of a bhand.
Onrganisations and political parties have every right to protest; but that should not be an illegal intrusion into the privacy or rights of a citizens assured by the constitution. Unless the word 'hartal' is removed from the modes of protest, the general public will continue to suffer from the evils of hartal. Let us resort to other peaseful means of protest to make our social life a safe and peaseful experience in our country.
With love and regards

2. After Shave – coconut oil will help heal your skin after shaving without clogging pores. Great for razor burn!

3. Baldness – apply three times a day to affected area of hair loss. Coconut oil supports cell regeneration.

8. Burns – apply to burn site immediately and continue applying until healed. Will reduce the chances of permanent scarring and promotes healing.

9. Chapstick – just rub a little into lips and it not only acts as a softening agent but it also has an SPF of about 4 so you get a little protection!

10. Cradle Cap – having issues with dry skin on your baby's scalp? Coconut oil will not only nourish your baby's skin, it also helps eliminate cradle cap. Just rub a teaspoon onto scalp daily.

11. Dandruff – coconut oil soaks into the scalp moisturizing dry skin and relieves symptoms of dandruff. It also helps to control oil secretion from the scalp, another leading cause of dandruff.

12. Deodorant – coconut oil alone can be used as a deodorant, but even more effective in combination with cornstarch/arrowroot powder and baking soda!

13. Diaper Salve – very comforting on a rashy bum with no harsh chemicals. Also safe for cloth diapers.

14. Exfoliator – coconut oil mixed with sugar or sea salt is a very nourishing and effective exfoliator and safe to use all over the body.

15. Eye cream – apply under the eyes to reduce puffiness, bags and wrinkles. Use on the lids in the evening.

16. Face Wash/ Soap – mix equal parts coconut oil with olive oil, almond oil, avocado oil and castor oil and use in place of soap when washing your face. Wet face, rub oil in and leave on for two minutes, rinse and pat dry. One teaspoon should be adequate.

17. Hair conditioner/ Deep Treatment – use as a leave-in hair conditioner by applying a teaspoon of coconut oil to your ends and then running your fingers through your hair to distribute the rest! For a deeper treatment, rub in a tablespoon of coconut oil onto your dry scalp and gently work through to the ends. Put a shower cap on to prevent transfer onto bed linens and leave on overnight.

18. Hair Gel/ Defrizzer – rub a little between your palms and either scrunch into hair (for curly hair) or finger comb in through from scalp to ends (for wavy/straight hair).

19. Healing - when applied on scrapes and cuts, coconut oil forms a thin, chemical layer which protects the wound from outside dust, bacteria and virus. Coconut oil speeds up the healing process of bruises by repairing damaged tissues. Plus, it smells a heck-of-a-lot better than anything from the pharmacy.

20. Lubricant – it is an all-natural, perfectly safe personal lubricant. Not compatible with latex!

21. Makeup Remover – use a cotton swab and a dab of coconut oil and you would be amazed at how well it works!

22. Massage Oil – pretty simple; grab some and rub!

23. Moisturizer – simply scoop some out of the jar and apply all over your body, including neck and face.

24. Mole Remover – when applied after an apple cider vinegar compress for several weeks, moles have been known to "slide off" or just disappear.

25. Nipple Cream – works great to nourish cracked, sore or dry nipples. Apply to a cotton ball and leave on your nipples between feedings.

26. Oily Skin Fix – prone to oily skin or an oily T-zone? Use a pea sized amount underneath makeup or alone to reduce the appearance of oil.

35. Toothpaste – there are numerous recipes out there but I just mix coconut oil and baking soda and dab a little of the mix on my toothbrush.

Re: [www.keralites.net] How to Unlock the value of your property?



While letting the property I will also suggest to have the Police Verification done and also have the NOC of the Housing Society if the owner is living in a Society so formed.

Also it is better to make the agreement for one year and then renew with a break of one month , never mind even if one pays a little more registration and stamp duty fees.

Never permit the tenant to apy make any direct payment of telephone, electricity, gas,etc and also do not allow the tenant to submit the contract of agreement to any agency like telephones, cell phones etc to get a connection.

Also do not issue any rent receipt to him and not allow him to register himself for voters or ration card in the address of the rented flat.

How to Unlock the value of your property?

Real estate is one of the favourite investment avenues for investors with deep pockets.

However, many of them only think about the future value of the property while making the investment, rue investment experts. That is because they don't even want to consider the possibility of renting out the place.

If you want a proof, check the number of permanently locked houses in any new building in big cities.

According to investment advisors, this is a bad strategy, as a real estate investment is expected to fetch capital appreciation as well as rental income to make up for the huge investment and its comparative liquidity as an investment.

Sure, rental yields are not much; but even at 4-6%, they are good enough to take care of the maintenance costs. The surplus, if any, is the icing.

"With the increase in the cost of property and home loan interest rates, house rents are also going up," says Pankaj Mathpal, CFP, managing director, Optima Money Managers. He is hinting that many prospective buyers are postponing their decision to buy home and instead are settling for living on rent, pushing up rental in many pockets in the suburbs.

"It is a good idea to rent a house than have it locked up. It gives some earnings from the property," he adds. But no amount of financial reasoning is going to convince some of these investors to give their property on rent.

Most of them fear that a troublesome tenant can make their lives miserable, and any legal hassle could damage their investment plans beyond repair.

However, these fears may be exaggerated, according to experts. You don't have to fear much if you ensure the documents are in order, do a background check on the prospective tenant and draft an appropriate rent agreement.

Document check

A tenant may not insist on all the documents, but it is in your interest to ensure that property papers, which include the occupation certificate and title deeds, are in order before renting out the apartment.

"A landlord has to ensure that his or her name is clearly mentioned in the property documents. This acts as a good authentication in case of any dispute in future," Shveta Jain, director, residential services, Cushman & Wakefield.

Valuation of property

The rent from the property depends on several factors, such as the location, size of the house, other amenities offered by the housing society and the overall market trends in terms of appreciation and depreciation.

"If you are renting your property, get a surveyor or a couple of brokers to confirm the rental value. Apart from checking out with your neighbours, get the property evaluated by two or three brokers to get an accurate quote," suggests Gulam Zia, director, national advisory services, Knight Frank.

Background check of tenant

It is important to get the basic background information on a tenant and verify it for accuracy. "The purpose behind the background check is twofold to ensure that the tenant is a suitable fit for the property and to preempt any legal complication at a later stage," says Om Ahuja, CEO (residential services), Jones Lang LaSalle India.

Doing a thorough check would also ensure that a tenant has no criminal background. Many cities and localities in India now require tenants to undergo police verification.

Ideally a landlord should personally meet the prospective tenant and get firsthand details about his occupation, permanent address, documentary proof of identity and, if possible, local references.

Apart from that, you can do a personal background check by asking for references of previous landlords along with contact details, and a letter from the company in which he or she works.

Drafting the rent agreement

Pay close attention to the terms and conditions in the agreement and to have the agreement registered or notified. The type of agreement would depend on whether it is a straightforward rental arrangement or a lease. "Again, there are two types of lease company and personal.

Most landlords prefer a company lease; but whichever is used, it should mention the duration of the lease," says Om Ahuja. "In the case of a personal lease which spans for 11 months, the landlord should have the agreement notified.

In case of a company lease, which extends for more than a year, the landlord should have it registered with the help of a lawyer. The landlord should complete all paper work before the tenant actually moves in," he adds.

Dear All,
I want to share my view in the above subject.
Recently Kerala Govt. is behind High speed railway line.  I think it will be stupid idea in the present situation.1. The cost itself is very huge ( Rs 1,18,000 crore - http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/industry-and-economy/logistics/article3599100.ece?ref=wl_industry-and-economy
2. How long it will take the Govt. to get back the Cost.
3. From where the Govt. will find money to repay the loan.
4. How many people should travel everyday to make the project either no loss/profit or only profit business.
I have an alternative.If the Govt. is concentrating on the following projects ( a. Kayamkulam & Ernakulam doubling and - Shornur - Mangalore doublein and electicification, b. Development of National Highways) it would be more viable and helpful to the people.
If we have fully electrified double line between Trivandrum and Mangalore, we can travel in 8-9 hours ( 634 Kms.). More and more EMUs should ply in Kerala.Your Comments are invited in the above subject.

Dear Jinto Cherian

Well written. I entirely agree with you that development does not mean providing subsidised/free food items and other commodities ( to people, who do not deserve it.) Most of the money spent for subsidies for food items is benefitting the ration shop dealers only.  With a daily wage earning of Rs.500, no family in Kerala with at least one person to work is not below the poverty line. The more subsidy the Government gives, more money flows in  to the beverage shops and from there to the liquour manufactures. I wish the Government stops all subsidies and utilise that money for the health sector to provide  quality treatment and medicines free to the people and for other infrastructual developments.

ബാംഗ്ലൂരിന്റെ പുരോഗതിക്ക് കാരണം ഐ.ടി.യുടെ വരവാണ്. വിദേശ ഐ.ടി.കമ്പനികള്‍ക്ക് ആ‍വശ്യമായ ഭൂമി സര്‍ക്കാര്‍ തുച്ഛമായ വിലക്ക് നല്‍കി. ഫലമോ ലക്ഷക്കണക്കിന് യുവാക്കള്‍ക്ക് തൊഴില്‍ ലഭിച്ചു. ഏറിയ പങ്കും മലയാളികള്‍ക്കാണ് ഈ നഗരത്തില്‍ ജോലി കിട്ടിയത്. യാതൊരു വിവാദങ്ങളുമില്ലാതെ ബാംഗ്ലൂര്‍ ലോകത്തിന്റെ ഐ.ടി.ഹബ്ബ് ആയി. കോണ്‍ഗ്രസ്സിന്റെ മുഖ്യമന്ത്രി എസ്.എം.കൃഷ്ണയാണ് കര്‍ണ്ണാടകയില്‍ ഐ.ടി.വിപ്ലവത്തിന്റെ തുടക്കം കുറിച്ചത്. വിദേശകമ്പനികള്‍ക്ക് തുച്ഛമായ വിലയ്ക്ക് ഭൂമി നല്‍കുമ്പോള്‍ കര്‍ണ്ണാടകയില്‍ ആരും എതിര്‍ത്തില്ല. ആ ഭൂമി ആരും വിദേശത്തേക്ക് കടത്തുകയില്ലല്ലൊ.

ബാംഗ്ലൂരില്‍ മെട്രോ നിശബ്ദമായി ആരംഭിച്ച് നിശബ്ദതയോടെ തന്നെ പുരോഗമിക്കുന്നു. രാഷ്ട്രീയം വേറെ വികസനം വേറെ. ഇതൊക്കെ കേരളത്തില്‍ നടക്കുമോ? അതെങ്ങനെ, കേരളത്തിന് ഒരു പാരമ്പര്യമുണ്ട് എല്ലാറ്റിനെയും എതിര്‍ത്ത് എന്തും 25 കൊല്ലം വൈകിപ്പിക്കുക എന്നതാണത്. അത് മാറ്റിയാല്‍ പിന്നെന്ത് മലയാളി!
