Two weeks back I went on a thrilling 3-day bike trip to Munnar, exploring some of the remote places I had never seen before. To avoid the weekend crowd, I began my journey on a Sunday morning from Cochin. Instead of taking the common route, I took a deviation at Kothamangalam, heading towards Mamalakandam. It… Read More Exploring Munnar
Not much action this year. After a long gap I went for a morning bike ride to Kumbalangi with photography in mind. This place became famous after the classic movie Kumbalangi Nights. The village and the backwaters were brilliantly captured in the movie. I enjoyed riding through the narrow roads and get a glimpse of… Read More Kumbalangi
First ride in 2022 to Moonnupeedika beach near Irinjalakuda in Thrissur district.

The pedalling scooter and jeep was the main attraction for me there. I remember how eager I was to grow up to pedal the… Read More Marine Drive, Kochi

While there were severe damages & casualties at many places, I was fortunate again to witness another safe “vella pokkam” (flood). For the first time I drove around Pala during the flood and experienced the unusual water level at my usual destinations. Here… Read More Thulavarsham

It is at a very remote place and the last 1KM road is very narrow that hardly a… Read More St.Thomas Mount
Found another beautiful Rubber plantation on an evening ride. Have you seen an old one? This is near Poovarany, Pala. The plastic cover is to protect rubber latex from rain water.
An abandoned house in neighbourhood. They were running a small printing press there. I remember going there for binding our school books during childhood.
Captured this from home terrace during a beautiful evening. The sky looked so dramatic for sometime which forced me to took out my camera. The three coconut trees you see below were planted by my grand father in my childhood, one for each three of us – siblings.
We have got plenty of pre-monsoon shower, also known as Mango shower, this year. To add on top, there was continuous rain fall for three days all across Kerala with the influence of the deep depression over the Arabian sea & the resulting tauktae cyclone. Kerala is also going through strict lock-down during this period… Read More Mango Shower
