This Raman has to bring contention on the name. When will he get to see a Psychiatrist? I am aware of the fact that Malayalam is a combination of Sanskrit and Tamil. That does not mean we should name our capital which starts with tamil. Obviously, the Malayalam name is a combination of the three and it should remain so in Malayalam. There is no need to have the same in another language.
Dude you need to read my post again. I never asked to change the city name to any other language. All I asked was writing the CURRENT NAME as തിരു അനന്ത പുരം in English. It doesn't change the meaning, it doesn't even change the pronunciation. So what are you blabbering about? How is writing something as "തിരു അനന്ത പുരം" change the language? Are you drunk or something? It is 100% Malayalam.

I believe we are as good or better than anyone else and we should not accept the imposition of a language or an "inferior" culture on us.
"inferior" culture? 😂 This is the first time I am seeing a "Kerala supremacist ". And I don't why people with such supremacist beliefs claim themselves as 'Socialists'.

Well you seem to misunderstand my post. Why shouldn't I believe that Kerala Society is the best. Well, if you don't believe that Kerala society is ahead of the rest of India, despite all our short comings, it is your problem, not mine. What we are seeing of late is a deterioration which is the influence of what has been going on in the north of India. If we don't arrest that trend, you will have to live through its consequences.

In reality, you are the one who is degrading Kerala society. Kerala society is not a society that believes others are inferior to us. We are proud of our language, but we don't have supremacist thoughts about the language. That's why Malayalees don't shy away from learning English or Hindi along with Malayalam and that's also why most Malayalees can understand multiple other languages like English, Hindi and Tamil.

Saying extreme Nationalistic/supremacist things like "we are better than anyone else", seeing other languages as "imposition of a language on us" etc are not Malayali behaviour. That's why Malayalam has a lot of loan words from languages all around the world (which actually makes the language evolve better). Malayalees are not like Ku Klux Klan. So basically, your supremacist behaviour is against the values of Kerala society.

BTW, you still didn't answer how writing 'തിരുവനന്തപുരം' as 'തിരു അനന്ത പുരം', changes the language.

👍👌. Pradeep refers to light (deepam)

The hating part in Thiruvananthapuram, might be Anantha not Thiru or puram.

There are several purams in kerala, sreekandapuram in palakkad, SL Puram in Cherthala ..... Also many places which starts with Thirus Thiru Naavai, THiruvanchikulam......

The bone of contention is Anantha.
Surprise, surprise. Ramanan brings religion into it again.

How do you deal with this sort of poison?

There is no point explaining anything to you!
In other words.. "എനിക്ക് ഉത്തരം മുട്ടി."

At least have the decency to explain your own claims. How writing 'തിരുവനന്തപുരം' as 'തിരു അനന്ത പുരം', changes the language?

We have the display 'TVM' in front of central railway station. If the one they plan at Shanghumugham also happen to be 'TVM', TVM will start getting more popular over digital media. Eventually more and more people start using TVM.

One cannot claim that High courts of Gujarat and Odisha are far away from the respective capital cities. In Gujarat, HC is located in Ahmedabad, which is 25km from the state capital Gandhinagar Similarly, Cuttack HC of Odisha is less than 25km from Bhubaneswar, state capital.

So majority the of Indian states capitals (with the exception of Kerala and Madhy pradesh) have either High courts nearby or at least have High court benches.

As Comrade VS Achutanandan said, President should exercise extraordinary powers to establish High court bench in Trivandrum. Old news

One of the many reasons to have a separate Travancore state of our own.

Oh please do!

I think the best idea would be for Trivandrum district to be a separate entity cuz I'm not sure the people of Kollam and Pathanamthitta would want to join in.

But avoiding the leech that is the current capital will be a real blessing for the rest of the state.

I think shifting the executive capital to Thrissur would solve this problem in a better way.

Surprising this demand hasn't been raised yet.

Is your brain near your umbilicus?
എൻ്റെ പൊന്നു ചേട്ടാ, I went to a CBSE school, full of boys and girls who couldn't swear to save their lives.

എന്നാലും ഇത്ര കഞ്ഞി തെറി ഞാൻ ജീവിതത്തിൽ കേട്ടിട്ടില്ല.

ഒരു മാരി LKG പിള്ളേരെ പോലെ, ശേ!

I did not mean any foul language here honestly. If you understood in some other way and felt it as 'theri', it just reflects your standard and not mine. As a modern medicine doctor and having learnt human anatomy , reading the comments here, I wonder if the creator was wrong in placing the brain, the organ which controls all other organs in the body in one way or another, at the extreme end of the body. I just meant that. FYI , the centre of gravity of human body is very close to the navel ( umbilicus in medical terms: thangal uddesicha theri alla). പിന്നെ ' ഒരു മാരി ' എന്നല്ല 'ഒരുമാതിരി' എന്നാണ്. പഠിക്കേണ്ട സമയത്തു ഇതൊക്കെ പഠിച്ചില്ലെങ്കിൽ കേൾക്കുന്നതെല്ലാം തെറിയാണെന്നു തോന്നും. കാരണം അതുമാത്രം ആയിരിക്കും താങ്കൾ സ്കൂളിൽ ഉപയോഗിച്ചിരിക്കുക..Anyway, feel 'proud' of your CBSE schooling.
