    1. Thank you so much Sarmistha, for your kind words 🙂

      I wouldn’t have seen many sunrises in my whole life, as I never used to be an early bird.

      But, I knew it’s going to be a special one and woke up early enough to experience the magical moments.

      To me the most interesting thing was, not the play of light and shadows, nor the ripples in the golden water, but the people and their activities for livelihood …

      The place is special for me, as it’s a community based tourism initiative led by a small group of village women and my organization supports them.


    1. Thank you so much, Dalo, for your visit and comments 🙂

      I am so sorry for this long delay in replying.

      Finally a lock down was required to break from the shackles of routine work and family commitments…

      In fact, when I got such a break, it become an unexpectedly long one too.

      Hope you are doing well and safe …

      As I work in the community tourism domain, I get a lot of opportunities for travel to some of the most beautiful places in Kerala. I could spend a few days in a peaceful village by the southern backwaters and it was a great experience.

      Managed to capture a few images of early morning activities in the back waters…

      Have a beautiful day 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Amy for your message 🙂

      I work with the local communities in this small village by the backwaters and I was lucky to get this great sunrise view last time I was there.

      During the time of lock down I feel the village communities are better adapted to these conditions and survive.

      Hope things will take a positive turn soon …

    1. Thank you so much, Jyothi 🙂

      This is one of the lesser known villages in South Kerala and the life in this beautiful place is so peaceful.

      I had the opportunity to work with them in developing a community tourism programme there.

      Thanks again for your visit to my blog and sharing your appreciative comments 🙂
