Its a WorldViewer site So the info should be reasonably accurate. This should help visitors to Kerala avoid difficulties

Woohoo! What a great state to be in! A harthal by the ruling party for celebrating the struggle for a high court bench here. Definition of irony that. Not to mention the Congress march soon for how inconsiderate the state government is for the same cause!

And the stupid transportation unions and the shop unions all join in for some good fun and games.

To quote my good neighbour, "What bench? If they want a bench that badly, I'll get one from the govt. school nearby. Why do they have to make us suffer?"

You know what Ernakulam? You can take stupid capitol title. We get none of the advantages and all of the disadvantages for it. Your traffic doesn't move anyway, so a few dharnas and jaadhas right on MG Road ain't gonna hurt any more.

*walks off grumbling and mumbling*
