In chemistry, an alkali is a basic, ionic salt of an alkali metal or alkaline earth metal chemical element. An alkali can be defined as a base that dissolves in water. A solution of a soluble base has a pH greater than 7.0. The adjective alkaline is and alkalescent less used in English as a synonym for basic for bases soluble in water; this broad use of the term is to have come about because alkalis were the first bases known to obey the Arrhenius definition of a base, they are still among the most common bases. The word "alkali" is derived from Arabic al qalīy, meaning the calcined ashes, referring to the original source of alkaline substances. A water-extract of burned plant ashes, called potash and composed of potassium carbonate, was mildly basic. After heating this substance with calcium hydroxide, a far more basic substance known as caustic potash was produced. Caustic potash was traditionally used in conjunction with animal fats to produce soft soaps, one of the caustic processes that rendered soaps from fats in the process of saponification, one known since antiquity.

Plant potash lent the name to the element potassium, first derived from caustic potash, gave potassium its chemical symbol K, which derived from alkali. Alkalis are ones which form hydroxide ions when dissolved in water. Common properties of alkaline aqueous solutions include: Moderately concentrated solutions have a pH of 7.1 or greater. This means. Concentrated solutions are caustic. Alkaline solutions are slippery or soapy to the touch, due to the saponification of the fatty substances on the surface of the skin. Alkalis are water-soluble, although some like barium carbonate are only soluble when reacting with an acidic aqueous solution; the terms "base" and "alkali" are used interchangeably outside the context of chemistry and chemical engineering. There are various more specific definitions for the concept of an alkali. Alkalis are defined as a subset of the bases. One of two subsets is chosen. A basic salt of an alkali metal or alkaline earth metal Any base, soluble in water and forms hydroxide ions or the solution of a base in water.

The second subset of bases is called an "Arrhenius base". Alkali salts are soluble hydroxides of alkali metals and alkaline earth metals, of which common examples are: Sodium hydroxide – called "caustic soda" Potassium hydroxide – called "caustic potash" Lye – generic term for either of two previous salts or their mixture Calcium hydroxide – saturated solution known as "limewater" Magnesium hydroxide – an atypical alkali since it has low solubility in water Soils with pH values that are higher than 7.3 are defined as being alkaline. These soils can occur due to the presence of alkali salts. Although many plants do prefer basic soil, most plants prefer a mildly acidic soil, alkaline soils can cause problems. In alkali lakes, evaporation concentrates the occurring carbonate salts, giving rise to an alkalic and saline lake. Examples of alkali lakes: Alkali Lake, Lake County, Oregon Baldwin Lake, San Bernardino County, California Bear Lake on the Utah–Idaho border Lake Magadi in Kenya Lake Turkana in Kenya Mono Lake, near Owens Valley in California Redberry Lake, Saskatchewan Summer Lake, Lake County, Oregon Tramping Lake, Saskatchewan Alkali metals Alkaline earth metals Base

Prem Nazirine Kanmanilla

Prem Nazirine Kanmanilla is a 1983 Malayalam crime film, starring Vijay Menon, Maniyanpilla Raju and Sreenivasan, who play as kidnappers of Prem Nazir. Other supporting actors include Mammootty and Nedumudi Venu; the movie shows the Kerala society and its political leadership and how various people behave during such a tragic event. The name may have been based on an older movie Post Man-e Kaananilla in which Prem Nazir played the lead role. A group of frustrated youngsters decides to kidnap the famous Malayalam actor Prem Nazir from one of the film shooting sets; the captured Prem Nazir is taken to a dilapidated home in a dense forest. The kidnappers treat Prem Nazir with due respect and treat him in the best possible manner, given the place where they are. One kidnapper comes from an upper-caste Hindu family, his father worked as the local temple oracle. Though educated, he does not find a good job. Another gang member has a troubled childhood during which his parents were murdered and he had to live as a domestic helper of the murderer.

The kidnap of Prem Nazir is to express their frustration against the cruel society. Kerala is now shocked to hear about this news. Old actresses Kumari are seen watching old movies in which Prem Nazir acted with them. New movie releases have been suspended and old Prem Nazir movies are now played in the theatres. For the movie distributors this is a quick way to make some extra revenue; the producer of the latest movie in which Prem Nazir was acting, is in a bad state. Only two more scenes in his movie were yet to be shot. In desperation he requests Prem Nazir's brother Prem Nawaz to act as a dummy, so that he can somehow complete the movie; the producer, named Innocent, pleads with Prem Nawaz that the movie would get completed, he can release the movie and generate some quick money. His idea is to release the movie; the political scene in the state is in a bad condition. The ruling government of the day is accused of being lax on investigations; the party in the opposition feels that government did not provide adequate protection to Prem Nazir because, Nazir sympathised with the party in opposition.

Demands are made asking the Home Minister to resign. The Home Minister flatly tries to retain his position, he feels there are international agencies out there involved in the kidnapping and so assistance from the central government is required. Meanwhile the state police mobilizes large numbers of police officers from the armed reserve and armed police battalions for a combing operation. At the same time, Prem Nazir, who by had become quite friendly with the kidnappers, manages to convince them of the foolishness of their actions, he advises them to surrender. They soon plan to escape from the forest with a plan to surrender when they are ambushed by a police party; the police whose only aim was to rescue Prem Nazir uses excessive force to capture the kidnappers. They are beaten all the way to the police vehicles and one of them is shot. A dejected Prem Nazir looks on helplessly as he knows that the kidnappers are not hardcore criminals, but he cannot convince the police and the government leadership and the people.
