It is time for the rains and more...

Soon it will be time for the rains and another Onam.

After many long years, Onam would be in Kerala this time.

Hubby has told the kids that we shall see the Nehru boat race too, especially since it is held not very far from home. Promises are seldom kept but one can always dream of things to come. I am told that the river right in front of the house is brimming and may soon breach it’s banks.

We would have landed in the new airport terminal at Trivandrum if the inauguration was not postponed. I hear that the user's fee would be retained but am hoping that it would be put to good use and that the impressive terminal would be maintained. I am also looking forward to the drive through the MC road instead of the NH. The road has now been repaired and is supposed to be good. This used to be the road frequented before the advent of the NH 47 and is a scenic route.

So, it is time for a vacation and maybe also a blog break?


  1. Great!

    Wishing you a happy vacation.
    If onam is approaching I will soon see the athachamayam... great!

  2. Have a great holiday! If you can, post something interesting, including photographs. Otherwise, just enjoy yourself!

  3. Enjoy your vacation! I guess you don't mind the rains as you wont be having much of it in Kuwait.

    Yes, the T3 at our Trivandrum is still a good few days away from opening thanks to whoever...whatever. Imagine, I hoped to use it in April and its still not ready. Incredible!
