Thank God It is Friday - an opportunity to serve

Divine rhythms of Kerala

A tribute to all temple artists of Kerala - especially those who participate in Irinjalakuda, Urakam, Cherpu, Arattuppuzha and Trichur pooram festivals.
It is absolutely nostalgic. What you see is what you get when you visit Kerala during the months of April - May. Do not miss the coming season

Natural springs of Sabarimala forest

Kerala is blessed with a heavy monsoon this year. This resulted in abundance of water everywhere, especially in the forests on way to Sabarimala. This is one such natural spring, where you can see devotees enjoying an ever remembering bath.

HSE and Safety initiative and promotional campaign seen on a tourist vehicle parked next to my car at Pampa, Sabarimala. Interestingly, while speaking to the young driver, he had many ideas. It proved once again to me - Never under estimate anyone, especially when it comes to safety.

Beware of date expired fruit juices and products being sold in Pampa and Sabarimala

Dear devotees, consumers, 

I happened to notice that many date expired products are being sold in the small stalls on way to Sannidhanam, Sabarimala from Pampa. Please be careful and as far as possible avoid buying these products.
Necessary alerts and requests have been made to the authorities concerned. However, it is up to us to take care.
Swami Saranam.
