A Jumbo Bath!

When we visited the temple at Guruvayur, we also visited the attached elephant sanctuary close by. This place houses a large number of these gentle giants. Here, they are taught various activities, besides being pampered with massage and bath everyday. It's nice to watch them lying down without a care in the world, while three to four people clamber tending to them. Sharing a few pictures here.


  1. Wow.. it must have been such a wonderful sight and experience :-)

    1. It was. I wished we'd be given a chance to give them a bath too!

  2. I love elephants. They're so cute. It must have been a treat to watch this cute creature to have bath and play with water.

    1. Me too, they are delightful beings! :)

  3. When we had been there it was closed for visitors. Thank you for sharing the pics. Felt happy looking at what we had missed.. :-)

    1. Oh! That would be disappointing. Thank you for stopping by!

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.

A Slice of Rural Mangalore

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…
