The Central and State governments (with support of the United Nations Children’s Fund) is organizing a national-level workshop on decentralization and equity for children. The workshop will be held at Le Meridian beginning on the 16th of April 2012. Union Minister for Tribal Welfare and Panchayati Raj, Mr. Kishore Chandra Deo will be inaugurating this workshop.
The event will be mainly for discussions and topics regarding the ‘priorities for children in 12th plan’. The event will also witness many other guests including Vandana Kumari Jena (senior adviser to the planning commission), Sudha Pillai (member secretary planning commission) etc.
The event will highlight on child rights. This would be a platform to raise the grievances of children who are abused and subjected to mistreatment often. The crime rate is rising, and hopefully debates and talks on such issues would raise awareness on the issue, and throw light on it.

Are you ready to do your bit for the Earth Hour? Yes Kochiites, we are celebrating World Earth Day on the 31st of March 2012, and Earth Hour will be observed from 8. 30 p.m- 9. 30 p.m on the same day. Kochi hotels, houses, apartments and shops will be switching off power for 30 minutes, and hence showing their support for Earth Day. Deforestation, Global warming etc. are taking a toll over us, and why don’t we do our bit this time to show our support towards environmental causes!??
Le Meridian Kochi is here with something innovative this year. They will be switching off power, and will be moving the dinner and bar venues to the pool side lawns. “Initiatives like these, especially from star hotels are laudable. Kochi must join hands in taking part for this cause. We must realize the hidden dangers behind certain activities of man, and work for the betterment”, said Saju K, who lives in Kochi.
Earth Day is here. Do your bit by planting a tree. And if that sounds near to impossible, at least conserve energy by switching off the lights and fans for half an hour! What say Kochi?

Kochi, being the commercial capital of Kerala needs to have some finer 5 star hotels for the flood of businessmen and entrepreneurs that visits Kochi every day. We do have the luxury hotels like Taj, Casino, Dream, and Le Meridian. But with the fast pace in which our city grows, we merit more. Kochi is being presented with international brands like The Holiday Inn, and The Park Hotels very soon. What more can we ask for? The Holiday Inn in Kochi! Holiday Inn is famous for being one of those budget hotels which is affordable for the middle- class. It also provides a 5 star stay to its customers. That is more than exciting. The best part is you can witness these hotels coming up in our Bypass road, and they are being built in a rapid pace. K Kumar, a resident of Kochi plans to start a business soon. “I’am happy that I’ll have good hotels to house my clients. Also, being a Kochiite all my life, I’am glad to see my city grow at such a fast pace.” Kochi is geared up for more progress. This is just a beginning. All excited to see Kochi in the next 2 years, aren’t you?
