Veeranpuzha losses its banks

In 2008 March 10, my first daughter was born. She was named Maria. To celebrate the joyous occasion, many of my friends compelled me to give them a party. Finally, when the busy days passed, I decided to party. Spend a nice evening with them in a place where they all wanted to be. We gathered in the banks of Veeranpuzha again. It was in just the Sunday to Easter. Last week of March.

Veeranpuzha Party
Veeranpuzha river-side party. Simple and sweet
The river remained as same as it was. But the banks were telling a different story. Some changes somewhere. Some culverts were ruined or terminated. We could not reach in our favorite part of Veeranpuzha due to the culvert was spoiled. Later somebody told us that some big business magnets in the city have bought some land including that spot - our spot. We realized that, we are losing the river. We may lose it forever... The river and her banks may lose its virginity.

We celebrated that day anyway. And we returned from there as if it were a farewell party in School or College. May be we would not be able to come back in full freedom as a native.
