Your moment is waiting...
This is Kerala for you, Gods own country. Kerala Tourism has gone up several notches, thanks to the epic ad created by Saatchi. Check out the video.... awesome http://www.keralatourism.org/
Enough bragging about my hometown, but you got to be there to experience this place of ever growing communism, the cliched coconut trees, vast stretches of paddy fields, the narrowest national highway ever built on planet earth, tapioca and fish curry (i stuck to Roti and Punjabi kadai though, dont ask me why) and the friendliest people (for directions that is, try borrowing money, you will see all the Navarasas in their expression i.e Sringaram-Amour, Hasyam-Ridicule, Karunam-Pathos, Rowdram-Wrath, Veeram-Valor, Bhayanakam-Fear, Beebhalasm-Disgust, Athbutham-Wonder and Santham-Tranquility on his face. Lets include a 10th expression, Nasham-F*** Off. We mallu's are damn stingy people you know.
By the way, if you are expecting great pictures of swaying palms, awesome beaches, beautiful malayalee women, then you are at the wrong place at the right time. Those "great" pictures will be on display next year at our 2nd Annual photo exhibition - Frozen Hues - 2. Click here for the Frozen Hues - 1 exhibition. Click here..., here guys, here here here....
Slumbering on the shores of Vembanad... to reach Chertalai, then Kochi.
Let me give some credit to Google, atleast there is some mode of transportation from here. There is a huge trawler or Junger which the locals call it, ferrying people across the lake for 7 bucks. Well ferrying people on their vehicles. After I loaded my bike, a bus, loaded with people, drove in. Wow. Check out the video grab below where I am ferrying my enfield. Cant dream of doing this in Bangalore. Or maybe yes, next monsoons I guess ;-)
