No, lets use this thread, specific for Kochi related projects in Emerging Kerala. As Kochi is Economic/Commercial capital of Kerala, naturally this event shall lead for proposal and development of several projects specific to Kochi. Lets discuss such proposals here, without cluttering elsewhere

Well, in general thread, we can discuss many projects that are pan Kerala in nature.... As you know, often talking city specific projects, particularly Kochi/Trivandrum in Kerala's common threads as often it ends up in petty unnecessary discussions.

Since our intentions is not to generate ego and false pride, rather a serious discussion and making many aware of whats going on in Kochi, why not we restrict our development news within this thread. Those who wants to know about Kochi, will come here and see these information.....

I donít think any good investments will come through emerging kerala, may be some small investments may happen but not big, when there are other good states to invest who will risk and invest in troubled state like Kerala. Now Gujarat is the best choice for investors, the Vibrant Gujarat is an example, itís a mega event compared to emerging Kerala, there in Gujarat, before two years MOU worth more than 20 lakh crore was signed. I donít see such potential for Kerala.

You have to start for a change at any one point... You can't nothing will happen and remain pessimatic for years... No one says, Emerging Kerala 2012, will be like a Vibrant Gujarat... But atleast it shall attempt to be a game changer.. Perhaps EK-2018 would be make something like VG now does....

Believe in change, rather sticking to erstwhile dogmas

But understand that Gujarat does not have any left political parties. Whereever left is there, development will not happen.

Keralites should change for Kerala to become like a developed state. Otherwise Gulf is the only option for us inluding our own left.

Left has contributed much for the average standard of living that Keralites enjoy. Its not like in other states where the there is lot of gap between rich and poor. Also, keralites, being educated has more social awareness and they tend to question anything that they cannot digest. This is also good in one way to stop rich getting richer and poor getting poorer. Lets not forget that.

I totally agree to what You said ,Communism pre 1990 has helped our state a lot..But modern day commies doesnt have any qualification to do prasangam on Communism...

For Majority of Keralites Kerala has become a place where they spent their vacations..Not where they live...Our State is Land of lost opportunities.

Why should we give credit only to Left? Even Monarchy played a crucial role for the benefits that Kerala enjoys... The two key indexes, Education and Universal Healthcare Access which Kerala always boast about was not Left Initiative. Rather both were contribution of highly progressive Maharajas of Travancore and Kochi. Ofcourse left also continued the legacy and it went on forward in post independent era, coupled with NGO movements.

Left movement had relevance in 50s, when Kerala was struck in a paradox of feudal culture and high educational/social awareness levels.... But no more relevant in current scenario. Today the concept of one man ownership has gone. The corporates all are public and owned by public individual stake-holders. The profits thus equally benefit to the society. Reliance might have made Mukesh Ambani richer, but equally made more than a lakh ordinary Indians richer..... Hence the erstwhile concepts of Kuthaka etc no-more relevant and must be changed.....

I dont agree that it is only due to the Maharaja's the social equality ( whatever it exists) has come in Kerala. I would give 10pc of credit to them if you ask. I am infact in agreement with what e_arunsid said about the state of communism before 90s and now.

I am not talking about social equality. I am talking about Universal Education and Universal Healthcare. Both were initated as royal policies.... The public schools were started across the state and govt lands were donated to missionaries to start schools, where students can study irrespective caste and creed. Govt schools were open for all students. Same in case of Healthcare...

These two leading policies, resulted in promoting more social awareness and later called for equality and movement against social unequality and fedualism which included Communism.....
