April memories – Part I

To start with I went to visu’s makkal arangam on the eve of wireless internals. It was boring. At half-time I returned home. Then we had the internals. I and goms went to hostel day on April 6th. This time it was of no interest. We had some dinner in the mess and waited for the function to get started. We waited till 9.00 pm and it was our bad luck we were not able to enjoy the function.

Munnar trip:

I along with ashok, chenni, sairam, vins and other mechanical guys went to munnar. We started off at 7.00 am on 7th april by qualis. It was a sudden trip. I didn’t even think that i will be enjoying a trip like this. We first visited suruli falls. Having a bath in the falls after a long time was really wonderful. Then we started off to Thekkady. We went for boating and unfortunately there were no different species except the elephants. Then had some snacks and resumed our journey to munaar ,Idukki district. Roads were unkind to us. The ups and downs in the roads and the jerks annoyed us a lot. We were slowly deviating from our planned time. We reached munaar by 9.00 pm. Ashok made the lodging arrangements in Kannan Devan Hills club. Then had some good time at munnar summer festival(vocal, dance and comedies) till 11 pm. Malayalam comedies made us feel bored. “WOW, beautiful girls” would be the first reaction when someone steps into munaar. After having a nice sleep in the dormentary we started to round munnar the next day.

The first place we went was echo point. It is a small lake set amidst rolling hills. The young tourists come to this place to hear the echoes of their partners’ name. Then we purchased some cashewnuts and tea packets. From there we went to rajamala. The picturesque beauty of the hills make any visitor come again and again. Then went to a botanical garden. We spent only 20 mins and we were in a hurry to visit other beautiful places.Next place was Eravikulam national park. A bus took us from the down to uphills. The road was very narrow. We can see the whole munnar city from this place. Hope its the highest place in munnar. It took us some good 2 hrs to visit the park and trekking. It was 4 pm already. The last place was a falls. Its a bit dangerous. We jumped into the rock at our own risk(no entry area). While an old women came and warned us that “Its dangerous. The water from the falls may overflow at any time. yesterday a boy like you died here. Be careful” we got shocked and suddenly climbed up. Then we went to a tea estate late evening specially for taking photos. Then came down through bodymettu. Our eyes were drooping. Thanks to kasiraja who arranged this trip.After enjoying 2 full days returned home at 10 pm.

I’ll stop here. Next post: April memories- part II
