The Blue-Veined Beauty

Hi, this is Cochin Blogger at your service. I’m based in a town called Cochin (officially, Kochi) in the state of Kerala, which is perched at the southern-most tip of India. It’s just a stone’s throw from Sri Lanka, and is famous for its unique natural beauty. Kerala is a slim, blue-veined beauty, with canals, backwaters, lagoons, rivers, lakes, ponds, and puddles galore, a thin strip of land caressed by the waters of the Arabian Sea.

Kerala’s trademark is tropical fecundity. It’s a paradise that is still largely unspoiled because of the low level of industrialization. Kerala first hit the international headlines when it voted the communists to power in 1957, this being only the second time communists anywhere in the world have formed a popularly elected government (the first time was in the tiny republic of San Marino).

Right, I’m signing off now. I’ll be sure to keep you posted. 🙂

  1. this is a nice blog you have here… am a cochinite too! simply love the city!

  2. You neatly – and uncomfortably – hit the mark, my friend.
    If we avoid eye contact, and when forced to speak, talk at rather than with the “great unwashed”, it spares us so many difficult questions..

    • You have neatly – and comfortably – missed the mark, my friend. I think this comment belongs elsewhere 🙂

      • Whoops! Another misplaced click…
        Sorry, I was aiming for “Invisible People”

  3. I came to Kerala for a holiday some 8 years ago. Truly, it is not an exaggeration to hear Kerala being called ‘God’s own country’. Through your blog, the memories of the wonderful time spent in Cochin came back. Thank you. 🙂

    • I’m glad my blog helped you revive old memories. The acid test, however, is if my blog can tempt you to return. Yes, Kerala is wonderful in many ways, but it’s also true that only the wearer knows where the shoe pinches 🙂
