Enjoying the beauty of Veetikunnu Island with my dear friends

Who does not like to enjoy the charming beauty of nature by indulging in the breathtaking activities? Participating in enthralling games will help you to pump your courage and enhance your mental strength. According to experts, the audacious beauty of nature should be explored by involving in daring games. But it does not mean that I like to play threatening adventurous games. Let me clarify that I am not that brave enough to do paragliding or to do hot air balloon rides in the crystal clear sky. But still, when I am with my friends I love to do some extraordinary things. From school days onwards I love to explore the gorgeous beauty of the unvisited or unexplored places. My parents are least interested in sending me to such places because of having a clear idea about the consequences. When I grew up I love to dig out the beauty of the least popular tourist places in various parts of the nation with my best friends from college and office. Usually, I used to visit the places near to my hometown or within my state. But after learning the boundless possibilities of exploration I understood that with the help of tour agencies one could enjoy the unseen or virgin beauty of the emerald environment. I think almost all the stupendous places situated in the various parts of south India, I and my friends explored. It was Kerala that failed to enter into our list. Therefore we had already planned to discover the beauty of Kerala during our last exciting trip. When we surfed on the internet about the scintillating tourist destinations in Kerala; the state was actually encompassed with many alluring islands and mind-blowing hill stations. Munnar, Thekkady, and Kumily and so on were the popular tourist destinations of Kerala, we read on the internet. But as we are fond of the least popular places we surfed a lot but failed to get the destination. While surfing on the internet I suddenly came across an advertisement for Gogeo Holidays, a leading private tour company in Kerala. They are the ones who focus on unexplored tourist destinations. Therefore we contacted them and expressed our wish. Understanding our desires they curated an exciting itinerary emphasizing on Veetikunnu Island situated in the granary district of Kerala called Palakkad. When surfed about the island; we understood that it really meets our expectations. Hence we purchased their group tour packages and boarded the flight to Kozhikode International Airport situated in Malappuram district.

Veetikunnu Island is known to be one of the fascinating and secluded islands in Kerala. Situated in the inner parts of Parambikulam wildlife sanctuary, Veetikunnu archipelago is known to be the twin of Peruvari Island. From the tour guide and also from the name board we came to know that Veetikunnu means ‘rosewood’ in local Malayalam language. Usually, travellers are supposed to seek permission from the forest department before stepping into the island. As we had already purchased the tour packages for our group from Gogeo Holidays we didn’t waste much time at the counter. Our tour guide had already recommended us to carry enough grocery items as the regions first of all uninhabited and lacks good food stalls. The journey from the entry office to the island is really thrilling. We strolled through the bushes. As we were ascending to the island we only saw thick bushes, tall bamboo trees and sandalwoods and felt that we may have to set the tent. But thank god over there we saw a cottage. We unwind ourselves before starting the exploration. We thought of taking a small nap but the herds of elephants and other wild creatures disturbed our sleep by their roars. I took out my binoculars and enjoyed the parade of elephants approaching the water body for quenching their thirst. We followed the path of our tour guide and explored the beauty of the forest. As I was deeply immersed in enchanting the charm of nature suddenly something bites my leg. At first, I thought it might some ants but when I raised my pants I understood that it was the leeches. Even though their intention was to purify my blood but the pain they give in return is really unbearable. As prevention or poison to the leech, I sprayed a little saline water on it. For a few minutes, the pain was not tolerable but gradually I was able to retain my old strength and continued my exploration. Followed to it we saw a watchtower in the midst of the island. The sun had already started to set and it was completely dark and hence we took out our cell phones and used its flashlight to climb the stairs. Even though it was dark we are able to enjoy the astounding beauty of nature in the reddish atmosphere. The cool breeze helped us to revitalize our soul and body. Spending a few minutes over there we descended and started to prepare dinner. We cooked our meals by burning the logs of wood and twigs. Even though the food was not tasty but when we prepared and ate together it induced our taste buds. Thereafter we entered into our cottage and enjoyed the tweets of nocturnal birds the whole night (as they did not allow us to sleep). After witnessing the alluring glow of the rising sun we moved to Peruvari Island. Over there we saw much rare and endangered fauna and flora belonging to different species. The archipelago is well-renowned for angling. By evening we boarded the flight to our hometown. A trip to Veetikunnu Island was one of the most memorable moment for us.

By the evening we moved to a well-conditioned tree-house and enjoyed the panoramic beauty of the dark sky encompassed with twinkling stars. It was really an awe-inspiring moment for us. What else to say such sweet moments could not be experienced anywhere else in the world? More than us it was the birds and animals who wanted us to witness the gorgeous beauty of the rising sun.

When we all hear the name of India what comes first into our minds are the famous saying ‘Unity in Diversity’ and it is exactly reflected in our culture and traditions. The country shelters people from various communities and religion for years without any issues of discrimination. The nation has been an exquisite instance to the world of showing that irrespective of creed and religion, people can stay in unity under a single roof. The nation is blessed with stupendous 29 states and each state differs with each other in an eccentric way of living and beliefs. Some states are highly developed while some others are still under the poverty line. But still, they are worth to visit because each state hosts different faces of nature. When speaking about the northern states the first name which gushes into our mind is Delhi and Himachal Pradesh. The scintillating beauty of these places will definitely lure our minds. Even though there are many praiseworthy destinations over there still people love to explore the dazzling charm of south Indian states and there are many reasons for it.

The city is abundantly enriched with historical monuments and forts like Humayun’s tomb, Red Fort, Qutab Minar, Rashtrapati Bhavan, Lotus temple, Jantar Mantra, Agrasen ki Baoli and many more. Visiting these ancient monuments one or two times will be fine for everyone but more than that will surely irritate us. Because even if we visit the place more than twice or thrice one cannot find any new changes instead he or she will become closer to history. That’s all about it. And that is the main reason why people organize only a few trips to these places. Another factor that pulls people from visiting it is the terrible climate. The scorching heat of summer and chilly winter will prevent people from keeping their feet there. As the city is capital of India one could enjoy various kinds of modern amenities and view new technologies.

An Unplanned Marriage and a Planned Honeymoon to Alleppey

I never thought of marriage in my life. I was very passionate and dedicated to my goals. I used to tell my parents I won’t agree for any marriage proposal until I achieve my goals. I belong to a simple orthodox family. The place where I reside is completely a replica of TV soap operas. With a lot of dreams and thoughts, I decided to pursue my graduation in engineering. The 4 years in an engineering college gifted memories that to be cherished in my early 50s and 60s. Like every student, I prepared very hard for job interviews, especially for campus placement. Unfortunately, I was eliminated in the pre-final round of campus placement. For a moment I lost my hope and the firm belief from god. I lost my confidence because most of my friends got good jobs in good companies and only a few remained jobless in my class and unluckily I belong to the latter group. Gradually I regained my hope and started to appear for several campus interviews. Within a couple of months, I enrolled myself in a software training course and as soon as I finished my course I was absorbed into one of the best start-ups companies in my state.

I burst out on them and clearly told only after two years I will get married. My decision was not digestible for them. For time being they remained silent. I again started to concentrate on my work. Day by day my work schedules became stressful and hectic. Sometimes I used to reach home late nights. This increased fear in my parents. They somehow wanted to finish their obligations and wanted to relax. This time through one of my relative our parents got a marriage proposal from a well-reputed family. I tried my hard to convince them. But this time they were very stubborn about their decision. As I had no other alternate I was forced to obey their commands. I really did not want to get married so soon. Therefore I did not dress well. I wore a simple dress and did not apply any kind of make-up on my face. By 10 am they reached our house. The guy was accompanied by his parents and aunt. After the official conversation, I was invited to the living room. For the initial few minutes, I did not look at them. Then I slowly raised my head and greeted them. To my surprise the guy was handsome and he and his family were well-mannered.  We all were impressed by their pleasing attitude. I was wondering how I could reject their proposal. I tried my level best but I did not find any genuine reason for the same. When they left my parents told me that they liked the family and they really wanted me to agree for the same. They also created an emotional drama so that I support their decision. I was really trapped. I cannot oppose my parents. And eventually, I agreed for the marriage. I wanted a time gap of at least 2 months prior to marriage so that I could talk to him and understand him. But the astrologer told us the perfect time for marriage is within a month or else we will have to wait till next year.
