  1. Sulekha,I was elated on reading your interesting experiences in Kerala and your knowledge of malyalam. I have also had a similar experience of speaking the language.The Punjabi accent is very prominent. All my in laws have a hearty laugh, when I make an effort to speak a few sentences.

  2. Beautiful write, Sulekha!! I’m just back from Kerala. I missed my home so much and I was jumping with joy while the plane descended and I saw so many coconut trees….it’s truly the “God’s own Country”!! πŸ™‚

  3. Onam is my favourite festival and my daughter’s too. We love dressing up the home in the traditional Poo Kolam (floral floor art) and the feast is amazing. So enterprising of you to learn the language and the customs. Very commendable πŸ™‚

  4. What a cool way to work with this picture prompt! Using it to stir up personal memories of your time in Kochi. Very impressive. I enjoyed reading about your memories and am also a bit envious of your fast learning of new languages πŸ™‚ Well done, Sulekha!

  5. Thanks for sharing a snippet of your life. Picture prompt nicely woven into a story – and personal stories are always more interesting than fiction!

  6. You sound so nostalgic about Cochin and I’m not surprised. I spent two days on the Naval base there in my childhood and have lovely memories of it! Glad this picture evoked this in you, Sulekha! πŸ™‚
