Xmas Excess at Veli, Fort Kochi

This gigantic banyan tree (in Veli, Fort Kochi), all lit up for the festive season, has been drawing crowds. Every part of this sprawling tree is festooned with lights. I stood there wondering how they managed it without heavy machinery. I’m told a lot of the work was accomplished with ropes. Talk about the Indian rope trick!


  1. Exuberance rather than excess, I think. Christmas is no time for restraint!

    • True, but I was seduced by the alliteration. 🙂

      • Did your mother never warn you to beware of beguiling beauties, bearing alluring alliterations..

      • Well, she did. But my mother was herself a beguiling beauty, which somewhat undercut her warning in my eyes.
