Small Town Paradise

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers

Long nature walks is the best remedy to get rejuvenated...at the least one could take one's 'La Ponderosa II' for it :)... Since the last couple of months I have enjoyed a few short trips in my home town of Palakkad in Kerala. This was Quite an Unexpected Trip; it was to a mural camp held by Lalita Kala Akademi in Malampuzha, a tourist spot of our lovely town. Unfortunately I reached there at the closing time but was Lucky enough to attend a seminar, even if  for a short while, on Benode Behari Mukherjee - a well known pioneer of Indian Modern art. Though I had planned to pay a visit the next day to get the pictures of the camp, the art and the artists, I couldn't make it...a Big Loss!

As I emerged out, the sun was setting and it was painting the sky and the landscape in beautiful hues and shades... I couldn't resist from taking these pictures of the lovely transformations. Hope you like it too... :) The pictures are taken from my Lenovo K910L.
