                Feeling Lonely. The home feels so small all of a sudden. It's pathetic to be this lonely and know it. I told myself that loneliness is the human condition and try to cultivate it in order to fill the space. Then I tried to fill the thoughts of loneliness with moments of togetherness. I thought that this will overcome the loneliness. But her absence has gone through me. Missing you Dear...But I know what it is to live entirely for and with what I love best on earth. I hold myself supremely blessed beyond what language can express; because I am my wife's life as fully as she is mine. HAPPY NEW YEAR Kit :-)

      Its been a while since I had my long ride. Got some work to do in my village and thought of going by bike. Initially hesitated to take the bike, but after completing realized that a good long ride on countryside can clear your mind, restore your faith and rejuvenates everything. Nothing compares to the simple pleasure what it gives.

DOLPHIN NOSE - A name that seems to be cute for listening, but glimpses of beautiful yet dangerous valley from that point can be quite unnerving. It is a huge rock extrapolating itself from an overhanging cliff which offers most breathtaking views as well as deep abyss below. It got the name from the resemblance of dolphin structure - a unique rock jutting out of the face of the hillside. If you are an adventure buff and a nature lover, this place has everything to offer. We took a 2 KM walk out of which the first half was on pave with pretty views of pear orchards and deep valleys amused on our left. The later one was treacherously steep and slippery(if drizzles) to say the least. Before starting from here you would be blewed out to see the guys finished their trek beneath, sweating all over struggling to put one foot followed by another. The task of descending down the slopes doesn't impacted much since we are desperate to see DOLPHIN NOSE. Its an enthralling experience to stand on the edge of the rock. I was scared to get that experience but my pals dared for that. We are left with the massive task of climbing all the way up. Somehow we managed to drag ourselves out of that huge task after having several pit stops in between. Thanks to our stamina levels.

Coaker’s walk - a famous attraction of Kodaikanal, a narrow pedestrian path of about one KM. It always interest everyone since passing through this stretch will offer extraordinary pleasure with the scenic beauty of hills. This winding trail offers panoramic view of deep valleys that brings joy to the tourists. Its really magical to see the clouds playing hide&seek and the sense of cold breeze while a shawl of mist covering you. There is a telescope house at the end of the path which offers a close watch of the nearby places. The best exploring time of coakers walk is until mid afternoon. If you are lucky enough, you could witness the rare fascinating phenomenon called `Brachem Spectre’. With this phenomenon, one can catch an awesome sight of his own shadow reflected on a cloud when sun is exactly behind him. This is truely a rare event because the probability of witnessing it is pretty much low due to swirling mists. In 1872, Coaker’s walk is named after Lt. Coaker, who prepared the map of Kodaikanal. Overall a walk amidst the scenic beauty enjoying a bite of fresh carrots leaves you simple pleasure.

After leaving the sanctum(kurinji andavar temple) premises, we visited "CHETTIAR PARK - A Precise Garden", which is just a stones throw away fromthat temple. It is a beautifully landscaped park in one corner of the Kodaikanal town. Being distinct from other commercialised areas, this park is vey silent and you can unwind yourself in a world of serene and peaceful. Carefully maintained decked floors for flowering plants, beautifully designed bushes, huge variety of fascinating flowers, well developed lush green grass meadow and the bracing breeze make the ambiance fresh. Hence it became "a pleasing tourist spot". The visitors will be allowed here for free. It was a queer experience roaming over there and everyone will find themselves enjoying the experience.

The first and foremost place in the list to visit in KODAIKANAL is “KURINJI ANDAVAR TEMPLE”. For those who are religiously inclined or quenching the religious thirst, this temple will be a perfect destination. The specialty of this temple is that it is situated at a calm and secluded hill top with peaceful atmosphere, surrounded by deep valleys and natural sceneries. It has a colorful mandapam over the gateway that leads to a main hall. The name “KURINJI ANDAVAR” is associated with kurinji(flowers) shrubs. In Tamil, kurinji means “hill region” and andavar means “god”. Hence Lord Muruga is referred as “God of Hill Region”. Kurinji is a plant special to that region which blooms the flowers in abundance once in 12 years. These flowers carpet the hill side. At that time the slopes gives us a feel like sea of purple. During the flowering period, the honey from this place will be considered as pure and good for health. The other days you will have a spectacular view of the terraced hills with carrot cultivation and a few hamlets. There is a famous festival celebrated in summer, when thousands of devotees visit the temple to seek the blessings of the god. Coming to the history of the temple, they used to tell like the temple was built by a European lady, who on coming to India got impressed and started following Hindu religion.

The Kurinji blooming happened last time in 2006 and if the shrubs survive, it is expected that they will bloom again in 2018. I am desperately waiting for that time. Overall the sanctum is a place that you would not feel like leaving the premises. So make it as a place holder in your trip to Kodaikanal, as you would get an inner peace which you are longing for a long time.
