Kerala is nature’s own poetry.
While the fragrance of tea and the flavours of varied spices envelope you, the endless, velvety green tea gardens sprawl across like a blanket.
The landscapes of the backwaters bewitch you in ways you cannot fathom and the long nature walks spellbind.
You are lost in the vibrance of the masks of the Kathakali dancers and awed by their meticulous, elaborate preparation.
And just when you feel you cannot be surprised any more: You bump into the elusive Nilgiri Tahr on the road to Eravikulam natural park.
On one hand nature soothes your senses, on the other the fierce Kalaripattayu performance excites.
And then there is music. Music in the countless waterfalls, music in the streets of Kochi and music in the enchanting, ancient temples reeking of divinity.
Here's a video with glimpses of my Kerala memoirs.
