Visit ‘God’s very own country’ with some GunGyaan!

Well, this is not a conventional “Must do list for Kerala”  It’s a “TRY-IT-OUT List”, which we explored zipping around Kerala & not being typical touristy types…

– Kappa chips & Mirchi Vada

Large, ‘more than crispy’ chips made from Tapioca fruit, available across Kerala is a ‘must have’ (No one can have just one). Curiosity about Kappa led me to the fact, Sabudana is made out of the same Tapioca Fruit…Did u know about this?

& Mirchi Vada (Yes… u read it right), a surprise street food in ‘Kerala’ is twist to ‘Rajasthani Mirchi Vada’  & the twist is amazing.

The ‘Elephant Ride’ was a fun ride, especially for ‘pic crazy’ people like me… n m sure, lot of people r like me..even if they don’t confide.. 😀

 – Kathakali

Traditional dance of Kerala, is an amazing story telling dance form & specially for a ‘nautanki’ person like me…the superb expressions of the artists inspire u to make ur life a Bigger Drama.. :-p .. I loved the EXPRESSIONS!!

Kathakali selfie is a ‘must’

– Kalaripayattu Show (The original Indian Martial Art)

I was pretty apprehensive about going for this, but at the end of it the strikes, kicks, grappling,  weaponry etc. was worth it! & inspiring…

– Beaches

Kerala & Beaches.. Wats new in that?? But the “Golden Sand Beach” which is not on a typical ‘Must visit places list’ of Kerala, is the most serene beach, I have ever seen. Actually “THE GOLDEN SAND BEACH”

– House boat

The Houseboat in the Backwaters of Kerala – The more I searched on net, the more confusing it got…To go or not?.. Finally we went, & we didn’t regret.. It is out of the World Experience..The Houseboats sailing near u, the oh so beautiful scenes which we see in movies are just there in front of u.. The food on Houseboat is amazing.. and the experience, takes away ur heart…Snaps say it all!

– HINDU-MUSLIM-ISAAI sab yahaan BHAI BHAI

Kerala, a ‘Secular State’ where in our driver, guide & new found friend Shafiq called the beautiful Chapels of Kerala…”Christians ki Dargah”  & temples, as “Hinduo ki masjid”

Most of the restaurants had a wall with all deities together

Gimme a buzz before you go plan a trip to God’s very own country!

“Maa,tu kitni achi hai” is just one side of the coin!

Maa/Mom/Mummy, the glorious “love giving human being” ,as being portrayed in Indian Cinemas…..does dat breed exists??

Is ur Mom 24*7 “Daya ki Murat” species….

Do u have the same “super lovey Dovey” moments with ur mom!!

The answer is NO..It is just 50% of the Real story…The real story is behind the doors/curtains of the fast paced worlds,where mom is trying to protect(read stop) her son/daughter & the ‘beloved ones’ love to experience the New thrills at different Paces…so there ought to be Friction!

Realty Check—-We cannot have a  “Rakhi” type mom!

(not rakhi sawant :-P)

We ought to have our differences, where we get angry, shout, get pissed, hate her for some moments,etc

There is a Generation Gap which is filled by different expressions which is mostly ‘not so love filled’ rather they are ‘argumentative’

But YES ,Eventually we turn to her for Everything!

Be it Food,Love Advice,Emotion Venting sessions …and many more…the list is endless ..

So,The songs which matches our Real ‘Love & Hate’ relationship are…

Stalker Mom“Maa ka phone aaya………”

260345-sonam2

Ab aayegi, aayegi jo ring bajegi sa re ga ma
Phone ke ander se phootega melodrama melodrama ,

Aaye tujhe bhi naani maa ka phone (Maa ki maa ka)

Main bolun jo bolun toh phir chalu hoga hungama

Times when moms keep calling u,wen u r in Movie,going out for dinner,for coffee or at friends house…..All of us (poor kids) have gone through the “Calling Card Mom”..:-D
