Life sometimes move so fast that we only realise when we look at the calendar. My observation is like… days are slow but years are fast! How come that happen? But sometimes days are much faster too… Being busy is good? I don’t know. I’m now eagerly working for 2 things, one is FreshMindIdeas the branding agency I founded. Next is a product, which aims to help eventmanagers and common people. Am super busy with these and happy too.. let’s see 🙂
The 20th iffk, International Film Festival of Kerala, 2015, known globally for its delegates and carefully crafted programming is now in the city and I’m happy to be one among those 12k delegates who love world cinema and this awesome festival 🙂
Yesterday, it was the first time ever I took my camera to shoot Theyyam, I always wanted to capture and watch Theyyam, was waiting for the event in Technopark, I know Theyyam itself is considered as God in Malabar regions, Kerala, I have given that respect while I was shooting, in a moment I bend down to take a snap when the theyyam was near a fire lit up there, and the very next moment theyyam has splashed the light! There were a lot of photographers around, cameras ranging from mobile to DSLR, I don’t think any of them got that moment, fortunately by the grace of God, I got it.. when I checked the preview in my camera, I was so thrilled that I jumped with happiness.. Yes!

Just wana share something with you all..
What ever you do.. just do it with passion…
Just like every Sunday, I woke up late.. went for a small walk, and was thinking how to spend this rainy day.. once I reached back home, my family was thinking of an outing, and we selected Ponmudi, There were several reason which pulled us back, the whether, sister’s kids.. distance.. but we jointly took this decision, and every one got ready, were feeling trippy!! ..
We started our journey by 11.45 A.M, in a car.. it started raining after a few minutes of journey.. but we continued.. after around 40 KMs, I spotted a direction board, which says, 5.5 KM to Meenmutti, and when we reached.. we came to know that there is 1KM to walk inside the forest to reach the waterfalls..
So.. there comes another situation to take a decision, me and my brother-in-law along with his kid, little Sruthy, she is in UKG now, we will be going and my mom and sis along with 1yr old Sreya will stay there only.
Then we started walking and in less than 5 mints it started raining.. Oh.. maan..!! It was not an eazy task to walk through really hard paths.. and then to handle umbrella in on hand and camera in another! and for Brother-in-law to handle Sruthy and umbrella..
It was much difficult to walk forward.. but we somehow managed.. and we walked the whole path.. and another interesting thing which I found there is.. there were families including babies.. old people.. I was thinking like.. Oh Gosh! it’s not good for me to even think that I’m getting tired..
Then finally after a journey of one and a half hours.. we reached THE MEENMUTTY WATERFALLS!!
It was mass… better you see it by yourself.. words may not be enough..
On the way back.. something weird happened.. leach attack.. for me, brother in law.. and to our little Sruthy too..!!
I will continue writing about the trip to Ponmudi, the beautiful montain top in my next post..
Let me know your valuable comments..
Thanks for reading..
Some programme was going on in my old school and I was invited.. While I prepared for a speech.. Somehow I recalled the old school days.. I was among those few students who always participate in all programs and grab awards and prizes..
All of a sudden my mind convinced me that I got a Nobel prize j too! Really..!!
Oh yea..? I was like confused.. tensed, happy.. don’t know what all things gone through my mind..
I asked google 🙂 took the list of Nobel prize winners… searched.. nope!! Huh am not there? But how? I’m supposed to be there.. may be something went wrong with wiki, I was feeling a little tired.. and my eyes almost closed.. and when I opened.. saw mom and sreya, my neice.. who came to woke me up 🙂
Hihi.. a dream.. will I get Nobel price? Na…, may be tonight I may get it again ..
There is somehow a connection between me and the rain.. whenever I feel there is a pain in my heart.. it rains.. sometimes it rains so heavily that I feel like what comes out is not water but the tears from the sky, the rain somehow knows me.. Understands me.. and communicates with me.
