‘A new normal’ in Kerala
Here is an important book to read: “Perspectives on a New Normal in Kerala”. Edited by Prof Babu Zachariah and Mr Arun Zachariah, this book is an important evaluation of the current status of Kerala, with a description of every movement that is likely to make a difference. At one look, it may appear to be all about Kerala; however it is worth noting that a lot of it could be applicable to every society that is changing, around the globe.
The book, published by Prabhat Book House, was released by Sri S. M. Vijayanand IAS, the universally respected and astute former Chief Secretary of Kerala. (We are proud that he is an advisor to Pallium India and a very active participant in helping us with strategy.) The event was attended by half the brain power in Trivandrum.
Pallium India had the privilege of writing a chapter on palliative care in the book, and also to receive a copy at the event, from Sri Vijayanand. Dr Geeta Gopal’s introduction to the book was a treat in itself. The various felicitatory talks were experiences for the soul.
Thank you, Mr Haneefa Rawther, General Manager of Prabhat Book House, for this gift to Kerala.
