10 days went just like that. Every morning had its specialty waiting for me and Ani.

The Monsoon Trail

Journey to home town after 4 months. When we went last time, the climate was so humid. But this time, my Kerala was a real heaven. 

These pics were taken near to Coimbatore. The western ghats just started coming out from the fog filled sky.

Neighbourhood River

I wanted to take Ani to this river side whenever we visit Kerala. Never happened then. This time we made it in the morning itself, to see the nature's beauty at it's best.

Still remember, when I bought my first cycle, 13 years back, this river side was one of the favorite spot. The main reason why was, that existed a mixture factory, where we can buy fresh packets of yellow corn mixture, for the cheapest price in the village. Good old days it was.

When we reached, there was around 12 boats collecting mud from the river. The mud is sold as fertilizer and so it is a good business around.

Then came the uncle with a net to catch some fish. He tried from different spots and angles. But none of the fish from the river was ready to get into that net. Tired, he went back to his house, with a plan to hit the river afters some time.

I was looking for that mixture factory around. It was not there any more. Instead, I could find a place which quench the thirst of certain group of people in Kerala - A Toddy Shop

Exhibition Memories

Thrissur Pooram is a famous festival in Kerala. Those who are new to this name can refer to this LINK

I still have the colorful memories about the Pooram. In my childhood days, going to the town was like visiting another country. And so pooram days were much anticipated moments then.

The specialty for me, was not the pooram part, but the exhibition, which comes up as a part of this festive season.

It was fun to walk around the exhibition, enjoying the different shops and the crowd around.

Now that hunger has gone away. Not a kid anymore but I felt bits and pieces of it in this visit.

But saw a lot of kids with that heart which I have gone through. I was looking at their faces and I could find my childhood days reflecting on them.

Food, ice creams, juice, is always a grand festive season for the kids in town.

That is the entrance and it changes every year :)

So much of people on the way. Everyone was looking around and moving to the next counter.

They told it was Hyderabad pearls. Whatever, it was looking beautiful.

Saving trees in a beautiful way.

Magic with the vegetables. He's taking rest after a veg carving marathon.

Again pearls...

Minting money on obesity. Its an ongoing trend around the world.

He was the silent superstar. His products made enough water in my mouth.

He was busy packing his products. He looked so serious when I clicked his work.

In that 35 degree temperature with more than enough humidity, chilled mango juice tasted like divine honey drops...

I did not really understand what these hangings were, but loved the bulb in between the unknowns...

The Ferris wheel behind the woods...

The coconut water. The all time summer hero.
