About

“Some Updates” is an apolitical, unbiased, crowd sourced blog that aims to assemble as well as archive news articles/clippings from multiple sources, occasional first hand reports as well as photos and op-eds about the entire development spectrum of Trivandrum (including soft-power developments like entertainment, literature, art, culture etc).

In a nutshell,  topics that the mainstream media of Kerala tends to shy away from or grossly under-report.  Often critical of the status quo, “Some Updates” asks the tough questions that others never will and tries to provide answers that others don’t bother to search for.  Contributions by folks from various walks of lives and living in all corners of the globe, all passionate Trivandrumites, this blog will hopefully be an eye-opener and an archive for finding news items of developmental activity in Trivandrum.

Thanks for visiting “Some Updates” and as a certain contributor of this blog famously says “stay tuned!”

        I wanted to discuss about one article posted by theevergreencity in this blog. Instead of discussing it here, if you could give me a contact info, it would be helpful.

    Love this blog. Keep up the good work.

    Why dont you guys buy a top level domain? Also, place some ads to generate revenue out of it. If you guys are not in this for the money, then maybe donate the revenue to charity?

    Just my 2 Cents.

      Thank you for the kind words, Rinu Vimal! We much appreciate your visiting this blog. As you might have guessed, we are not in it for the money, nor are we of the charitable type. In fact we have been called names that are less than charitable, for speaking up for Trivandrum in various forums 😀

      We started off as a place in the web to archive news reports from Malayalam media, with some annotations and translations for easy search. Later, the blog evolved into adding an occasional op-ed style article or crowd-sourced photo-features.

      If we start going after money, our laid back team of volunteers, who gather the clippings will no longer be happy. They would be pushed beyond what they can spend their personal times on this🙂
