In Chennai some people say, "In the neck of time". I'm ashamed to say that it took me some time to realise the derivation of this!

Sam,

Thank you very much for such a wonderful travelogue with lively pictures. Always looking forward to more and more from you.

A humble suggestion, why not to publish your writings? - especially the guide to good English & air travel etiquettes.

Talking to the end

Hi Yeti.

that was a live experience with your log on the journey to our land, and I really enjoyed reading it.

Always Welcome to the land again, hope I will be there to invite you with the other tbhpians, next time

Fantastic travelogue. I enjoyed every bit of it right from the first post including the off topics. Spent nearly 2-3 hrs enjoying the places you have visited by just going through your posts and photos..

Mostly my travels were only on official front & you have hinted how that could be converted into more interesting ones. Thank U

I used a humble D40 in 1600ISO with a 70-300mm lens and stopped breathing during the shot.
Sir, that was only in jest

I have a D60 and discovered it has the H1 mode too. Thanks a lot.... It was very useful witin the barely lit interiors of the Belur Halebid complex.

Travelled to Kerala too, but didnt manage to catch Kathakali because of the Onam festivities.

Sam, another good travelogue. Never been to Kerela but from your photographs and experiences, seems to be an awesome place to visit.

Thank you, Sam Kapasi. I have become a fan of your travelogues!

Thought this would never come to an end. I've not been to kerala and had the opportunity to see it through your eyes. Excellent narration and snaps. May your tribe increase!

Errm.. In my experience Aconite before the onset of a cold works wonders in preventing it. If you get a full on cold, then it's Belladona and Bryonia for you. [PM me if you're into (the relatively quack) world of homeopathy. I'm quite a believer.]


Homeopathy is still pretty uncommon in India!

And wonderful thread once again sir! I've been going through a lot of threads started by you these days! (Not noticed? At least 4 so far!) But I had no idea that Kerala has so much to see!

It's very common in this part of India: I thought it was all over India!

Ah I see. Then I stand corrected. It's pretty uncommon in THIS part of India (as far as I know).

We're a long way apart! I know it is quite easy to find a homeopath or homeopathic pharmacy in Chennai, and I suspect Kerala too. I can't speak for anywhere else.

It's still somewhat of a specialty. So homeopathic doctors and pharmacies are few and far between. 1 in 50 is about a rough estimate.
