Speak Malayalam in Ten Weeks is a new book by John D. Kunnathu & Lissy John. This book helps the speakers of English to gain the basic skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing Malayalam. This book was created as a second part to their earlier work, "Learn Basic Malayalam in Six weeks," which was found helpful by hundreds of people in the US and Europe. This book has ten lessons, which are built around ten children's songs, which have been sung by Yesudas, the well-known singer. The songs are based on the traditional popular animal fables. Thus the learners have the opportunity to learn Malayalam as presented through the voice of Yesudas. By the end of the ten lessons, a learner will be able to listen and understand Malayalam. The learner will also gain the ability to speak Malayalam. Our first book focused on the skills of reading and writing, but this one focuses on listening and speaking. This book makes use of the contemporary knowledge of the language and the contemporary ways of learning. Someone with a basic knowledge of the writing system of Malayalam can easily follow this book, and rise to a higher level. A reviewer, Andre Pleasant, wrote: Great helper for learning a new language. Wonderful book! Another reviewer, Reba M, wrote: This book was a very thorough and helpful tool in helping me to learn how to speak Malayalam!

This is a workbook for those who learn to write Malayalam Alphabet. The focus is on the shape of the letters, and on how to write them. The letters are ordered from simple to complex, so that the learners won't be intimidated by the few complex ones. The letters are classified into base forms, short forms, and combined forms. A page is devoted for each letter. At the top left you see the letter along with the direction as to how to write it. A star indicates the place to start writing a letter. At the top right you see a little help as to its sound. Also you see a few words in which the letter occurs. Then you see in six rows six sets of the letter in dotted lines in varying sizes. The biggest ones are at the top, and they become smaller as they go down. The learner is not supposed to write all of them together. In the first week, the learner may write only the ones in the first row. He/she may visit as many pages as time permits, but he/she should stay within the first row. In the second week, he/she may come back and do the second row of each of those pages he/she visited. Thus the learner needs to spend a minimum of six weeks to complete the entire book. If the learner is a child, he/she should be directed to stick to the plan of one row per week. Filling each page fully before going to the next won't serve the purpose. As the learner writes a letter, he/she needs to sound it too, so that each letter will be associated with the sound it represents. All Malayalam sounds don't have English equivalents. The learner will have to seek the help of a native speaker if available. The learner may also search in Youtube for Malayalam alphabet pronunciation, and listen from there. There is also a list of a few common words and a few sentences toward the end of the book. This is the very first book a level 1 learner of Malayalam may use. The same authors have made two more books available for the next levels. Learn Basic Malayalam in Six Weeks is level 2, and Speak Malayalam in Ten Weeks is level 3. A reviewer, Shija Abraham, wrote: "Malayalam Alphabet Practice Workbook by John Kunnathu and Lissy John is very well organized with mainly English-speaking people/kids in mind. Equivalent English sound for all vowels and consonants with a practice page is given for each letter. To help beginners, arrows are shown in the direction in which each letter is written. It also covers stressed consonants, consonant combinations, short form of consonants and consonants without a vowel. The book ends with some common words and sentences which also give a short history of the Malayalam language. The book provides a plan to learn the language in 6 weeks. The Kunnathu's experience as educators is very well displayed in the structure and the content of the book. I highly recommend this book for all beginners."

Though None Go With Me is a series of observations and challenges as seen through the eyes of a Maine pastor on his first trip to India. Barry Blackstone taught for forty days at a Bible college in Kerala State in India. Here he shares his insights on the cross-cultural adventure that has forever changed the way he sees missions and the support of native works in other lands. This book includes flashbacks to youthful days. (Rural India takes the pastor back to his own boyhood in northern Maine.) In India Blackstone faced challenges with language and food, and even a broken tooth. Here each story Blackstone offers is a devotional that brings to light deeper spiritual meaning and insights--more than the actual experience itself. This book also tells of the impact the pastor's trip on people of his own church in Ellsworth, Maine, and of what they did to forge a link between a small church on the coast of Maine and a small church in the hills of southern India!

A Chance to Die is a vibrant portrayal of Amy Carmichael, an Irish missionary and writer who spent fifty-three years in south India without furlough. There she became known as "Amma," or "mother," as she founded the Dohnavur Fellowship, a refuge for underprivileged children. Amy's life of obedience and courage stands as a model for all who claim the name of Christ. She was a woman with desires and dreams, faults and fears, who gave her life unconditionally to serve her Master. Bringing Amma to life through inspiring photos and compelling biographical narrative, Elisabeth Elliot urges readers to examine the depths of their own commitment to Christ.

This book is written focussed on the interests of intelligent, hardworking and ambitious young men, young women and their parents. Overconfident, energetic and independent young people take impulsive decisions, oblivious of future consequences. All those who are born on this earth are entitled to enjoy a comfortable, dignified and healthy life. It does not happen always. Mainly because they are not groomed to achieve this objective, with realistic visions, life skills, attitudes and emotional stability. Most parents are preoccupied with day-to-day survival problems and social issues. They leave the task of grooming their children to teachers. Overcrowded educational institutions are in business mode in our free India. The Gurus are a demoralised and discriminated lot in the technology ridden and competitive employment market. Most young people, therefore, are forced to go through a trial and error approach to improve their lifestyle. Making a wrong decision is easy. Getting out of its clutches is complicated or even disastrous. Some of them surrender to defeats and get left out on the journey of life. Some of them challenges the challenges and come out victorious. But, by then a major part of their precious life would have already expired. “Eclipse of Dreams” deals with the battered life of a man, a living model, which might save some young people waiting to commit mistakes or take wrong decisions. It also throws light on some of the hidden and inappropriate social and political issues, for the young people of India to take on.

This is a story about a womans exceptional courage, a mothers unconditional love, and a matriarchs uncompromising will to see her family survive against insurmountable odds. She was widowed at a young age with seven children to rear, and her biography narrates her life from a hapless childhood in her native Kerala (India) through the span of history of her domiciled country, Malaya, from World War II through independence and beyond. The book is a poignant read of events that she had to cope with in her life, bringing to the fore the special attributes that she possessed and displayedin particular, her strong positivity, her magnanimity of love, and her unflinching faith in the divine. Her kind and forgiving nature stamped her out as an exceptional individual. Also woven into her biography are the rich cultural traditions that she instilled in her progeny; her travel experiences, especially in her later life, which she enjoyed sharing with her grandchildren; and interesting facets of Malay and Chinese cultures that touched her life, which she loved to share with her relatives in India and abroad.
