A dream trip to Kerala!

Ahhh…. The title itself might have informed you what am gonna write in this post… Yes! Its absolutely about the most beautiful state of India – Kerala! I always used to remember the green and subtle beauty of that state when ever i hear of its name.

Though i haven’t visited all the cities in Kerala i do have visited Cochin and few places during my childhood which i even don’t remember… All i remember is the breezy and cool weather that makes my day brighter and greener surroundings that makes my life colorful 🙂 🙂 🙂 I always love being in such kind of weather which makes the month of November – January the most favorite and cheerful time of my year 🙂 So am in the happy period of this year absolutely 🙂

During my college days few of my friends got to visit Kerala on an Industrial visit and they did went for Munnar… That was one such place an eagerly waiting to visit for the past few days. I asked them for the pictures of each place they go for in Kerala and Munnar to watch the beauty at-least in Photographs until i get a chance to visit those places 🙂

I hereby offer you few of the pictures taken in Kerala for you 🙂 If you haven’t visited yet then pls do take a vacation to Kerala 🙂 🙂 🙂

Diwali Bash!!!

Hello guys!

Sorry for not updating my Prep’s for Diwali! Got some prob’s in updating it… Will update it soon!

This post is especially for Diwali bash at our home… The whole day of Diwali is been given in this post… 🙂

Once when the day has arouse i was late as-usual but its none other like the normal days… Its DIWALI!!!

I just got up from my bed and took oil bath and had a quick dry up and was ready for a visit to the nearby Temple 🙂 Meanwhile my sisters got ready too and I was excited how the day is gonna move 🙂 We were wearing our Diwali Dresses though 🙂 We started to temple around 6.30 A.M and drove for a 15 mins and reached the temple…

For our disappointment we could find only a very few lazy guys like us wandering around the temple and there was no pandits as its been late they have completed their pooja’s and went back 😦 So we just had a quich prayer without any rituals and had to return half-hearten which made me a bit upset too…

Coming home after a disappointed darshan i had to visit my Uncle’s home  which is quiet far from my home. So we three sisters had the breakfast with Idly, 2 type of Chutney, Sambar, and Sweet Pongal (Traditional food for each festive breakfast). Then with few munchies with Muruku and Laddu we had to finish our breakfast and got ready to move for our uncle’s home at 10.30 A.M.

Its really a hard experience travelling around on Diwali day as we could find everyone bursting crackers on streets and need a very careful attention on each of our move in making sure there is no cracker on the road. Ufff! After a big troubled driving for 25mins we reached our uncle’s home and gave our sweets and murukus to them had few of their sweets with chit-chatting and alas! it started raining… The rain lasted for about 2 hours which kept us locked in our uncle’s home itself…

When the rain slowed down we started back to home. It was more difficult to ride in wet surface when there is a pile of sand on the road side. In such a difficult turn we got slipped off and had a fall 😦 My sisters were not injured but on the other side i was injured so bad that i cant even move my legs due to the heavy weight of my scooty which was on my leg. A few people rushed in to help us as my sisters can’t lift up the vehicle. They helped me out and my legs were trembling with pain and fear. I was keen in inquiring my sisters if they are ok. After few minutes of rest we started back home which a few streets was nearer. With much of strain I managed to drive back to home without any problems…

It was a bad Diwali i thought… After reaching home i got tons of scoldings from my parents and had a pain killer and an injection in the nearby doctor’s house. I had to take a complete rest for the whole day. But how could i?? Its Diwali and i have to watch out many new program’s that is been telecasted. But failing in my arguments i had a cup of juice and went for sleep till evening 5 P.M…

With few snacks i started watching the programme and by the end of 7 P.M its time to celebrate our Diwali with Crackers! My sisters compelled me to come out and crackle few crackers. But due to heavy pain on my leg i was not able to crackle but i enjoyed watching my sisters and neighbors and their kids enjoying the day 🙂 I have added few shots of this Diwali Cracklings 🙂 🙂 🙂

Finally got back home to watch over the program’s around 9 P.M and one of my sister suddenly had a feeling of applying Mehendi…  So i had to apply her Mehendi just a little which soothed her as she started crying when i said am tired and can’t apply…

This was taken on the next Morning

Then had our dinner with Non-Vegetarian foods like Fish fry, Chicken gravy with rotti’s and chapatis.

Thus my Diwali ended up with a messy as well as quiet enjoyable one 🙂 🙂 🙂

Note: Since it was raining the whole night i was unable to put Rangoli’s which was one of the most saddest part of this Diwali :(. The clarity of my mobile might be quiet less during night time so do adjust with the picture clarity 🙂

A heavenly trip …

I had a chance of visiting ma grandma’s home which is a typical village where we can find all sorts of old customs. I loved being there though I had some different experiences. I was used to city traditions of doing things from morning till evening. But when you go to such kind of villages you might feel surprised and some kind of nostalgic feeling. It’s because there are lots of things that turns you on from our lifestyle. Let me list it down:

  1. I was used to get up around 7 am in my place. But there people used to get up early morning at 5 am and begin their routine works. Kinda difficult for me coz those people doest stop by themselves getting up, they force us to get up too 😦
  2.  I haven’t seen the sky so beautiful and felt the fresh air touch my skin making me feel so energetic in my place. I used to come out of ma home only after 9. Its weird actually but this is what happens to most of the people living in cities.
  3. I saw greeneries wherever I turn around in village. So much pleasing to eyes watching plants and the due drops on the leaves and flowers and the tiny plants that took up its head for a new beginning. Nature is really lovely 🙂 . In ma place greeneries are only seen in televisions rarely 😦
  4. What the hell is this??? I cannot see houses as far as I could see. During night time I was just freaking out by the solitude home stay and the weird sounds of frogs and many other unknown creatures. I was hell-stuck in the night time and for sure I haven’t slept even a single minute. But that was quiet a different experience in daytime as I started enjoying the solitude staying. Coz in cities we could see houses build clustered and roads congested. But it’s totally a different world out here.
  5. The best and final thing is the people out there. Where are they from?? So much of love, care and affection from each and every single people I look at though we are not related to each other. Their innocent and childish hearts attracted me and I felt sad leaving that place.

I had a bit of experience for being in a heaven though it was for just a single day. Am not sure whether I would go to heaven after my death but am sure I had experienced how staying at heaven would feel like.

Below are few shots I took with my mobile…

This was the first shot i took when i got up at 5.30 am…

This is the grass you can see which was around the house…

This was the side view of a beautiful sunrise from the house…

These are the coconut trees that are grown before the house… Cute nah 🙂

Its the Watermelon !!!

Its the watermelon plant grown over the roof of the store room…

This is the picture i took at 6 am… Can you find the difference between half an hour before sunrise and after sunrise? Such a lovely scene 🙂

Finally i have to say you all one simple yet valuable thought… Please do visit your grandparents in villages which might take you to heaven and also make them happy 🙂 🙂 🙂
