Aluva River

Aluva river is actually the part of the Periyar river flowing through the Aluva town of Ernakulam district in Kerala. The flow of the water is very strong during the heavy monsoon season and the water can rise up to about 6 meters (guess). When the water from the mountains is very less the backwaters from the Arabian Sea flows in. The main attraction here is the Shiva Temple that get immersed in flood waters during the monsoon which is similar to the phenomenon of the Kottiyur temple in Kannur district. There are a lot of space around this temple for people to do activities including so many temple rituals.Bathing and swimming in the river is an awesome experience. By morning the cool atmosphere comes up and the warm waters have special effects on our body. If you wish to swim, you are never alone because there are so many other people as well who come here to swim and to take bath everyday.If you get a chance do visit the Aluva River.

Banana Chips

After I moved on to Kozhikode in 2011, I had better taste for this banana chips. It is fun eating those hot oily chips that would be directly packed after taking it out from the huge hot frying utensil.Those salty crispy chips always made my tongue worst because I take in a lot of it. The shop you can see in the photo is the place from where I usually buy banana chips. And he is making chips.There would be long queue at times before the shop in the seasons like Onam and Vishu. Really it has inscribed a good memory of Kozhikkode in me.
