About

I am privileged to have been born and brought up in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Kerala.

Blue skies, Monsoon rains, Virgin beaches, Green carpeted hills, countless Streams and Backwaters… all these been taken for granted.

Two decades gone in a flash and I had to move on… move away…

Completing my studies I moved to Bangalore and started my career in IT industry and the 9 to 5 life.

Five days in office was no excuse for two days of rest, and I started exploring places around.

Here, I would like to share my thoughts, share my travel photos and stories, and introduce you all to my beloved native “Kerala”.

Welcome to my blog and Thanks for your time.

Fast Forward 3 years (August 2016)

How long you could resist it…

The pull of your home place.

Yea, finally, after working in Bangalore for 10 years, I managed to say bye bye to my IT career.

Once I came back home, I wanted to do something meaningful, something which gives me happiness…

My search led me to a wonderful team which worked under an umbrella organization called ‘Kabani-The other direction’ a non-profit NGO which works with the local communities to develop and market community tourism programmes.

Now I am part of this team and having a great time exploring one of the most beautiful places on earth and interacting with real people…

Thank you so much for all the wonderful people in this forum who stood with me and keep supporting me during all these years…

  2. Hi Sreejith, Let me start by saying I envy you !!! Kerala is ‘God’s own country’ ( I affirm the hyperbole ..clichéd but true !) I spent two weeks in Kerala last November and by the end of the trip I was convincing my husband to move there !!!! Loved browsing through your blog..it is refreshing and am so glad to have met someone who breaks the monotony of mundane life to explore ! Your pictures are exquisite and inviting! Looking forward to many more vicarious experiences through your lens…

    • As I am too lazy, though I used to accept the blog awards thankfully, I doesn’t follow all the steps.

      This happened a few times and I better mention it in my ‘about’ section.

      Hope you won’t feel bad about it (yea, you know my nature for quite some time now) 🙂

    • Hello Prakash,

      So nice to hear that, you could explore Kerala and you really loved the experience 🙂

      10 days trip in Kerala would have taken you to most of the interesting places here and it’s really mouthwatering for me too 🙂

      Living in Bangalore was really a great experience for me and it’s a real convenient place to explore the whole of South India.

      Thank you so much for your kind words and it really means a lot to me 🙂

      Have a beautiful year, 2015 🙂

    • Hello Prakash,

      Thank you so much for the nomination, I am so glad you felt my blog deserves this award 🙂

      As I was away from blogging for most of January, I missed your message.

      Only thing with accepting awards is, most of times, I miss the steps to be followed and postpone it to another day… and that day never comes…

      Hope you are having a great time 🙂

    • Hello Vinitha,

      Thank you so much and I really feel honored 🙂

      As I was away from blogosphere for a while in between, missed out your message.

      It’s the real and only reward of spending countless hours in front of the computer, posting, commenting and replying…

      Though I don’t have any no-award policy and all, I am too lazy to follow up with the steps for accepting the awards.

      Please don’t feel bad about it 🙂

      Hope you are having a great time …

  4. I spent some time in India while I was travelling and it was my one big regret that I didn’t get to Kerala. One day perhaps I shall take my son, but for now I am glad to have found your blog so I can read about your wonderful adventures 🙂

    • So nice to find you here, Ting 🙂

      Great to see that you were in India and liked my beautiful country 🙂

      Unless you have plenty of time, it’s so hard to explore this vast nation properly in one trip.

      I am so happy you liked my posts on Kerala and I am more than happy to share the beauty of this narrow strip of land sandwiched between the mountains and the sea.

      I am sure your family will thoroughly enjoy a trip to Kerala and wish it happens soon 🙂

    • Hello Ken,

      I had to take a small break from blogging, as I was preparing for a competitive exam 🙂

      I was trying hard to manage my work, studies and blogging, but found it really tough to dedicate enough time for each.

      Now, the exams are over and I will be right back 🙂

      Thank you so much for this message and hope you are doing great 🙂

      I always enjoyed checking out your blog with diverse themes …

      It’s Monsoon season here in Kerala and the whole region looks like a water world and under green carpet 🙂

      Frankly, I am yet to explore my backyard completely and trying to do that now a days.

      Hope to share what I see and experience with you all, here in this great forum 🙂
