Exploring Neighborhood

My nephew and niece were eager to join me in my exploration, when I set out to follow the cry of the peacocks. As kids, I and my cousins have done enough of these treks and were excited about our findings – New places, berries and strangers. During our hunt for peacocks near my house in Surathkal, we came across beautiful sights. Here I take you on a picture tour.

Green fields & Grazing Cows



My extremely naughty niece taking a detour. :-)

Old lady preparing broom sticks out of coconut leaves; kids watching.

Finally mission accomplished after around 2KM trekk.

Wild berries. (Karandey....and berries of Kiskara plant)



Wild Flowers

A Bhoota Sthana....Prayer hall for holy spirits that guard the farm and land.

More Cows....

My favorite shot, as always....We were there!

  14. I've had a variety of those berries during my childhood. And my native place was not too far off from Surathkal!
