Veeranpuzha - 2006 June

ഒളിച്ചിരിക്കാന്‍ വള്ളിക്കുടിലൊന്നൊരുക്കി വച്ചില്ലെ?
It was a sunny afternoon in June 2006. One of my close friends - Suman Babu - came to my home with his newly bought digital camera. It was a Sony Cybershot R1 series cam. he wanted to shoot some beautiful landscapes with that. We decided to go Veeranpuzha. (Where else..?) Not only to have some test shots, but also to hear the lullabies of wind and waves of our favorite river... and to finish a bottle of Swedish Vodka (I forgot its name)... That was a wonderful day. Nice climate. Beautiful sky. This shot I took on that day with his R1 cam. The house-like structure is an inspection hut for fish (prawns) pond (we call it chemmeen kettu). More images here.

A nostalgic image of Veeranpuzha

Veeranpuzha Sketch
The sketch of Veeranpuzha done by Bijin Das
I was sitting on the banks of Veeranpuzha. With my colleagues at IDENTITI. It was on Friday the 13th of April, 2007. There were three or four bottles of wine and some snacks. There were songs in our heart... It was a Late Easter party.
Suddenly, without any evident signs, rain unleashed the hell. Heavy wind. Lightening. Thunderstorm. It was Friday the 13th. All of us forgot everything. We all were intoxicated and dancing in the rain. I and two other friends just started wandering in the banks of the backwaters... We were totally unaware of the danger... But nothing happened... Even now I remember that times with fear... But sure it was a thrilling experience. This image is created by Bijin Das who were with me that time...
