Pinarayi Vijayan's House has become one of the most searched Kerala related phrase in Google search, especially after the arrest of few people who circulated the photo attached in this page below. Anyone who is not very familiar with Kerala politics may be wondering what is so special about Pinarayi Vijayan's House !
In order to know why malayalees are so much interested in someone house in Kerala, you must know some background.
Pinarai Vijayan is the State Secretary of the Communist Party of India (Marxist). He recently modified and improved his house in Kerala. You may ask what is so interesting about it. Well, the reason Pinarayi Vijaya's house has become a controversial topic is, many people accuse that he has built a very huge house.
In my opinion, it is someone's personal choice on what kind of house he/she want to build. If I have more money than my neighbor, I could choose to build a bigger house than my neighbor. It is 100% my personal choice.
So, why people are so much concerned about the house of the state secretary of CPM ? Is it just because he is a political leader? I am sure there are many more political leaders in Kerala who has built (one or more) houses which is several times more expensive than Pinarayi's house. There are many business men and politician's in Kerala who built houses investing crores. Several leaders of the COngress party has built very huge houses and bungalows in Kerala and it never got so much news and media coverage.
Controversy about Pinarayi Vijayan's House
The controversy about Pinarayi Vijayan's house started few years back. However, it got a lot more media coverage recently when an email started circulating with the picture of a huge house which is not actually his house. The photo of an NRI person's house was circulated in the email with the title saying "തൊഴിലാളി വര്ഗ നേതാവിന്റെ കൊച്ചു വീട്".
Controversial picture of the house of an NRI - Circulated as Pinarayi Vijayan's House
Since Pinarayi Vijayan's house was a controversial topic in the media for a long time and since many people have not seen the real picture of Pinarayi's house, most of the people who received the email believed that the picture is actually Pinarayi's house. Every one started forwarding the email to their friends and it eventually reached the hands of some CPM fans who registered the case with Cyber Crime Department in Kerala.
Cyber Crime Department in Kerala did a wonderful job and surprisingly they could locate the origin of the email chain. They traced it to an NRI working abroad who believed to have composed the original email by taking the photo from the Orkut profile of his friend. Later it was confirmed that the picture circulated as Pinarayi's houses was not really his house.
Controversy about Pinarayi Vijayan's House
According to reports in various media, Pinarayi Vijayan's house is not a huge bungalow as shown in the picture above. There are no pictures of his real house available in internet yet. Even though media always accuse that his house is pretty big, media has failed to publish any proof.
The Janasakti weekly published a picture of a house in it's face page this week claiming it is the original house of Pinarayi Vijayan along with a cover story titled "ഇതു പിണറായിയുടെ വീടോ ?".
ഇതു പിണറായിയുടെ വീടോ ? Cover page of Janashakti, claiming this is the picture of Pinarayi Vijatan's real House
There is no information available at this time to confirm this claim. Even if the claim is true, the photo of the house in the picture does not even look close to the size of the picture circulated on the web. The picture published by Janashakti weekly does not look too big and is quote normal for a political leader who has to meet and accommodate many politicians regularly.
If the media can collect and publish the photos of the houses of all political leaders in Kerala, I doubt if Pinarayi Vijayan's real house will come up even in the top 100 list!
Pinarayi Vijayan's real house
Even though it is the personal choice of any one to have a big house or small house, it would have been better if the real house photo of CPM State Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan was published. At least, that will help to stop circulating all misleading information and the rumors spreading about the said house. If that hadn't keep a top secret, it wouldn't have become a controversy at all. Big houses are very common in Kerala and politicians are no exceptions.
On the other hand, we should respect the privacy choice of people. Just because Pinarayi is a politician, he does not lose his privacy choices. It could be just a personal decision for privacy reasons that he does not want to publish the photo of his real house. Politicians too have a family and a house is more like a family matter. Many politicians like A. K. Antony do not want to mix family with politics. If someone don't want to publish the photo of their house, let us leave it to them and Keralites have bigger problems to worry than going after the house of someone.
