  1. Good article and give immense pleasure to read. Already one November has gone after this post. How many still has to go before my car passing through that dream BRIDGE…..

  2. Good news. “In Kerala development will take ages.” When we implement things the matter will be outdated or become useless. Our Politicians, bureaucracy setup need to have a greater outlook in taking bold administrative decisions and implement steps for the growth of the State. Ruling party or opposition party take things for granted. They need to spend some time to study the administrative reform take by Sir C. P. Ramaswami Iyer the Diwan of Travancore from 1936 to 1947. During C. P.’s tenure as Diwan, Travancore made rapid strides in industrial development. C. P. invited the Indian Aluminium Company to set up a factory in the town of Alwaye. The first fertiliser plant in India, the Fertilizers and Chemicals of Travancore Ltd. (FACT) was established by C. P. to manufacture ammonium sulphate This was established with American collaboration in open defiance to the hostility of the Viceroy of India C.P. also established a plant to manufacture cement and another to manufacture titanium dioxide.The Travancore plywood factory at Punalur The Travancore Rayons Limited was established in 1946 with a plant at Perumbavoor The first plant to manufacture aluminium cables was opened at Kundara. C. P. wished to establish a hydro-electric power project on the Periyar river However, his efforts were opposed by the Government of Madras. C. P. argued as a lawyer on behalf of Travancore and won. As a result, the Pallivasal hydro-electric power project was established on the Periyar river. He initiated[citation needed] the Pechipara Hydro-electric Scheme (present Kodayar Hydroelectric Power Project in Kanyakumari District), the Periyar Game Sanctuary and other irrigation projects. C. P. carried out a great deal of pioneering work for the Vivekananda Rock at Cape Comorin and built guest-houses at Kanyakumari. He renovated the Padmanabhapuram Palace of Marthanda Varma’s days (in present-day Kanyakumari District) and expanded the Trivandrum Art Gallery. In 1937, C. P. started the University of Travancore with the Maharajah as Chancellor and himself as Vice Chancellor. In 1939 he was awarded an honorary L.L.D. Degree by the University of Travancore In 1940 under his Dewanship Travancore became the first state to nationalise road transport in India. The first cement highway in India was constructed between the capital Trivandrum and Kanniyakumari covering a distance of 88 kilometres. The same year capital punishment was abolished and adult franchise introduced. He was also the first to appoint a lady as District Judge. and many more reforms. C. P. was acknowledged for his talent as a lawyer, administrator and visionary. No doubt of the remark on Sir C. P. Ramaswami Iyer “one of the cleverest men in India” Our Politicians, bureaucrats should spend time in ransacking information instead of loose talks to make the presence of our state in the Global map for ever.
