The beauty of Munnar bowled me over and even after leaving the place I cant froget the wonderful nature that I encountered up in those hills. Nature had always been an inspiration for me and I found that the trip to Munnar essentially charged me up and even prompted me to blog - a task that I had been putting off for a long time now...

Though tired by the nagging travel sickness which resurfaced with vehemence since leaving me at the latter part of my childhood, I was instantly impressed by the beauty that welcomed me even before we reached Munnar. Once we neared the place, it was magnificient!

All around me, I could see cloud clad mountains and beautiful green nature. To add the beauty, the nature decorated the hills with flowers of various colours and hues- many of them not visible any more in my village... The air was cleaner, purer and refreshing. When the clouds came kissing the hills, the spectacle left me with joy inexplicable. Not in the near past had I felt so thrilled and joyous as this... It felt as if a part of me that was hitherto hidden somewhere in the deep realms of my mind was released! In its wake, it brought such a joy that could not be attributed to anything specific!!!

A strange change was taking place, unknown to me. I was content and felt blessed to glimpse this wonderful world that the nature was unfolding...

Later in the evening, the visit to Mattupatti dam area held even more stunning glimpses of nature.. What words can explain the natural beauty of a river gently flowing between cloud clad  mountains!!! As the clouds lowered further, it brought to me a soothing chill and freshness and my mind overflowed with joy. Even the droplets of rain was relished as a boon. But then it rained heavily and one had to take leave - hesitantly.

And as we drove back to the hotel in the heavy downpour, the mind was at ease... the travel sickness seemed to be a small price to pay for such a wonderful time with nature... I had already started looking forward to the next morning and the delights it promised. With that comforting thought, I went to sleep.

The Lost World

  It must have been around 2 O' clock in the noon... All the people around me were enjoying their mid noon siesta... I was waiting with baited breath among the foliage... Soon, I could hear the voices...and the stealthy footsteps coming closer. I remain hidden behind my favourite mango tree. My heart was thumping... What would happen? Will the plan backfire? Will someone find fault with me? A thousand questions seem to crop up in my mind in a matter of seconds... With the heart beats sounding like drum beats, I waited for the right moment. As soon as the stealthy steps sounded near enough, I darted out from behind the tree and shouted at the top of my voice (believe me, I can be heard by the whole village when I shout!) "Who goes there?''  The shock and terror on the face of my unsuspected victims were inexplicable. They screamed to each other 'Rrruuunn...' and scampered here and there. Soon, most of them were not to be seen, except a small


Well, the title was reserved for a blog to be written when Tendulkar hit his hundredth ton... Seems that we will have to wait a little more for that. In the mean while, I reached this personal milestone of 100th entry in my Blog! Even though its not a historical or hyped event, but just a humble achievement of a rather unknown and uninspiring blogger, personally, it is a great achievement for me. What started as a time-pass has now become a passion.  So, allow me to celebrate this small event. It is only proper that I express my gratitude to some important people who have helped me to reach this far.... I started out with no idea of what blogging is or how it is done. I was inspired by my friend Ranjith Menon to start a blog, way back in 2009 (I think). It was created and soon forgotten... Then for two years it lay dormant... I don't know what hit me, but in 2011 I started blogging like a man possessed ... and the result is that I am here at my 100th post today. I
