Monsoon diary from Wayanad

in nostalgia •  4 months ago

Heavy Monsoon rain is causing havoc in the South Indian province (state) of Kerala. The emerald green land is drenched in heavy down pour and often schools are closed, there is substantial losses to the sole remaining types of agriculture in this pseudo modern, consumerist society.

Monsoon aka magical season as branded by the Kerala tourism has found its normal strength this year after probably a decade but the lost land due to buildings and all other destruction is finding difficult to be in terms with the normal rain.

Few photos from my relative's place below:

Ripe Coco fruit : Chocolates are made from the nuts of the fruit. As kids we used to eat the fruits and mostly ignore the nuts. Literally steal the fruits from our own place ... ;-)
