About Me

My photo
I dream of wandering wild, walking along the woods plucking fruits, laze around sublime landscapes. I feel alive when I'm out there basking in the sun, watching new horizons. I'm in search of little joys that keep me revived. I wish to belong in places where I can quench my thirst drinking from brooks, spend the day chasing butterflies, sipping honey, stopping by to coo with the birds. I am in love with cloud-kissed mountains and flowery meadows. Freedom is what I crave for! Set me free so that I’ll come back to you… I'm a dreamer. I believe that my dreams will take me to new places. This blog tells about my journeys and people who had been a part of them..

My native land - Keralam


This is a paradise and it is part of my soul. It had always been in the back of my mind that the first post in my blog will be about Keralam, a land which boasts its own beauty and grace. 
Being someone who was born and brought up in the capital city adds more closeness to the place. I have no doubt, majority of the natives proudly portray this 'affinity'  towards their place and are never ready to replace the unique 'naadan' ways of life. The word 'naadan' reminds me of the local teashops which serve yummy snacks (for some other interesting people, the toddy shops), group of guys wearing dhothis sitting on roadsides always ready to pass comments on whichever lady passed their way, the calm and serene temple surroundings, the ponds nearby, paddy fields, small houses with huge backyards and not to forget the variety of fruits that we get mangoes, coconut, jackfruit, banana, papaya and so on! I miss the scenery and the feel of Kerala monsoons, the raindrops sputtering all over the roof and knee high water all around. Although June is the time for re-opening of schools after summer vacation, the kids longed to buy new raincoats and colorful umbrellas. Most of my beautiful memories are from this land, so I shall group them up and share with you all in my following posts. I will definitely try to get some photos attached to make it more interesting. Hope it helps you in some or the other way! I look forward to improve my writing skills frilled with poetic slangs (triggering the genes from paternal side).
