Three Kings Church

Pictured here is the Three Kings Church, Nerul, Goa.
This was taken on our trip to Goa last August. This was supposed to be the time it rains hard, but we were disappointed as there were hardly any rains. It was as sunny as ever, and quite humid. One particular day, we decided to visit the Reis Magos Fort impromptu. On reaching there we realised the place is closed on Mondays (reason enough to go to Goa once again). We parked the vehicle and tried to walk around a bit, but decided it was not the best of times to do so- it was simply too hot for that. We then simply drove around the laid-back little villages, where everything seemed to slow down a bit. It was really very pretty, and very green. The drive to this part of the city is picturesque, and the view from the fort is supposed to be very beautiful too. Definitely worth a visit if one has an extra day to spare, or in my opinion, I'd rate this a notch above the noisy, crowded beaches!

How to get there: From Panjim one has to cross the Mandovi bridge, take an immediate left and follow the road along the course of the Mandovi. Alternatively, one can take the ferry from Panjim too.
Days open: All except Mondays

  2. Goa, always brings to mind -party, drinks, noise. How could I forget churches, beaches, people , food and a perennial undercurrent of Portugal (or should I call it Konkani) hospitality :)

    1. Very much Konkani, Bhavani! True, there's so much more to Goa than what's always glorified!

A Slice of the Western Ghats: AGUMBE

Agumbe is a tiny village in Shimoga district, and part of the eco-sensitive zone of the Western Ghats, the lifeline of the coast. The region receives very heavy rainfall, and is also referred to as the Cherrapunji of the South. The region has lush beautiful rain forests, and is also home to a number of unique flora and fauna, indigenous to the zone. The enigmatic King Cobra also resides in the in the thick rainforests.

A summer sunset

A quick post! Over the past few weeks, I haven't been able to dedicate much time to this space, owing to more pressing matters, both personally and professionally. However, I'm making it a habit to write down in my journal as often as possible, so as to make a record of my thoughts, which have been quite interesting. 
With this post, I hope to resume writing posts at-least twice a week, starting today! This picture was taken in my village in the Summer. It was a clear evening, and the sky was spotless. The setting sun against the horizon made of various palms made for a very pretty picture. The tiny glistening lake looked nice too.

FortyShadesMore!
Last evening we'd been to our village for a Spirit Worship ritual. The drive was quite smooth, save for a particular moment where I braked all of a sudden, to save a small snake slithering slowly on the tar road. I got quite a shouting for it! In the past few days, the village had seen showers, and everything had turned green. Patches of grass were seen by the road, and the parched countryside looked hungry for more. There was a peacock strutting rather proudly in the middle of the road. 
By the time we reached the village, dusk was falling and the sun had disappeared behind the trees that make the horizon at the edge of our fields. There were lot of heavy clouds too, and the evening light filtering through them looked glorious. As the sun went down, the colours kept changing. In a span of just fifteen minutes, I lost count of the number of hues that appeared; it was as if there was an artist sitting on the other side and secretly painting the sky! Below are a few p…
