    Sub:-Eka jalakam regarding.

    This is concerning many christian students from kottayam, kanjirappally, palai and chengannecherry. The CBSE students did not get admission in the colleges.The admissions are going on.Many applications were rejected. Some of the students with excellent results managed to approach the vice chancellor's office to gather the information. as per the report( verbal) the computer could not recognize the mark for CBSE students because the computer was fed only to identify the Book Keeping and accountancy marks .It did not consider the marks for the CBSE students Accountancy as it is not fed.So automatically the marks for accountancy is not taken by the computer. The CBSE students percentage mark came down as it did not include the Accountancy results.all these applications were rejected.

    Do we sit back and keep quiet and send our children to Bangalore Mysore,Coimbatore,Manipal and Hyderabad and make them "the new generation Children " at this age, when they need guidance and support from parents to mould their life. They all will work part time join the Pubbs and go with the flow.When we have so many christian colleges in kerala, where we can bring up our children in discipline in our colleges, why this unfair situation created. Could you please stand up and fight for our children could get more information from St antonys school kanjirappally, Fr.Nirappel,Fr.Jose puthen kaduppil or the Bishop house.It is unfair.We dont want to send our children outside kerala at this age.We need admission for our children in kerala.They have scored above 88%.please do some thing.
    The voice will not be heard until and unless through the media it is said
    The vice chancellors office received many complaints and they are just qiuet.

    Dear Mr.chief minister,
    First I wanted to thank for being a great leader for Kerala. I wanted to request you a small help from your part.I am living in U.S.A with my family.We always visit our family every year. But when we reach the air port we face lots of difficult experience from the staff of airport. Also we have to spend and stand a long line in the airport.The employees does not want to do their job.The questions they asking is very stupid.You need to take into consideration to provide a better customer service.Because in U.S.A we don't have to stand long line,due to the efficiency and hard work of the staff.The second major issue is the waiting time on the road.We only get 21 days for the vacation.Half of the vacation time we spent in traffic jam.Everyone go for vacation complaint about these issues.I know as a chief ministeryou can make changes of these issues in Kerala and work for Gods own country

    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    My aunt is suffering a lot of troubles in her house. She is living with her husband, son and daughter in law. They all together are trying to send her out of the house, telling that they are not willing to meet her needs. She is a diabetic patient moreover a thyroid patient too. She needs medicine, diet foods and amenities like cooking gas and so on. They are farmers but really rich enough to lead a good life.
    We complaint it to the vanitha court and they send few police for the investigation. But her family bribe the investigators and they didn’t do anything. We have no money to find a lawyer. Please make awareness of the consequences that they need to face who is against the mom or a woman.
    Thank you for your time and concern

    Respected sir, this is for your kind information that the government of tamilnadu has enforced the compulsory bond under NRHM scheme on all india quota candidates from 2011.When we had joined in 2009 the scenario was different and it was only for state quota. In this way around 200 keralite doctors are held up there and hence doctors who are already in kerala service and those who want to join kerala service are not able to do so as the tamilnadu government has abducted all our original certificates.kindly release the NRHM bond on all india candidates in kerala and bring us back to our state.Sir I have personally sent a letter to your address.kindly do the needful.
