Dear Flower, I Know What You Did This Summer! You Finally  Bloomed! Hope You Didn’t Gulp A Bottle Full Of Disinfectants To Come Out Of Your Self Induced Lock-down. You Timed It To Perfection As Well: When Humans Are Indoors And Nature Is Taking Over!! Despite The Clear Air, I Still Can’t See Himalayas From My Balcony. Glad That I Spotted You!

By The Mystic River!

A Boat Sans The Boatman And A Temple Without Any Devotees. I Had Wandered Into A World That Just Had Me Accompanying Myself. I felt Very Lonely. The Silence Was Deafening Yet The Soul Was At Peace With The World! River Banks Have Produced Civilizations And Sometimes They Can Create A Philosopher Out Of You If You Sit By The Bank And Take A Plunge Into The Life You Have Just Lived! A River Is Not The Same Always Since The Waters Keep Moving. I Too Was Not The Same Anymore Since Life Had Changed Me Too. Come, Sit By The Mystic River And Contemplate Life!

“One Does Not Simply Walk Into Anchuruli. Its Black Tunnels Are Guarded By More Than Just Forest Personnel. There Is Danger There That Does Not Sleep And Its Is Ever Watchful.” Anchuruli Tunnel is a seductress in Monsoon and this picture was taken during a rain interlude!

 

Anchuruli is a catchment area of Idukki Arch Dam in Kanchiyar Village near Kattappana in the district of Idukki in Kerala. The Anchuruli Tunnel is highly noted for the 4 km long circular tunnel that carries water from Erattayar dam near Kattappana to Idukki reservoir. The Tunnel. seen in this picture shot into prominence after an aesthetically shot scene from the Malayalam movie “Iyobintey Pustakam” featured the location. This gave a whole new perspective to the Tunnel.
