Day Two in Alleppey

Spent the day recce-ing locations for the shoot, which took me to villages around Alleppey. Kerala’s like a dream. Any landscape you lay your eyes on looks like something an artist has painted. The bright blue sky, the fresh green of the grass and the crops, the coconut and banana trees, and the lagoons with their sand bars. Too beautiful to be true. (Will be uploading pictures soon.)

Oh, and the food here is awesome. Had lunch at a Malayali Dhaaba on the roadside on our way back from one of the villages. And did I have an unbelievable quantity of rice!! 😀

Oh, and – got the luggage back. 🙂

Any bloggers in God’s Own Country?

…’coz that’s where I am.


In Kerala! 🙂

In Alleppey.

On work.

So all of you can refrain from imagining me lying on beaches, soaking up the sun and getting the massages that Kerala is famous for. Oh, no, no … imagine me like that, imagine me like that! What a nice thought! So what if I know that I will have no time to go lie on a beach? Technicality!

I will try to update regularly.

Oh, today’s update I’m in Kerala. But my luggage isn’t. I was booked on a flight that went from Delhi to Hyderabad, and then changed the flight number (“for security reaons”, they told me) and came from Hyderaad to Cochin. The airlines decided to take my luggage to Bombay though, and I’m sure they had their own goo reasons for doing so – but all I’d like to say is that I do not appreciate my luggage being separated from me, and I am not sorry about the amount I shouted at the women at the airline counter at Cochin airport. So, anyway – the current wherabouts of my luggage I am not too sure about, but I am told that it has been sent back to Hyderabad, from where it will be taking the same flight tomorrow as I did today. In this, I am only glad that my luggage will not have to go through the ice cold stoopid burgers that I was served on the flight today.

So, basically – the whole day was spent at the airport. Work starts tomorrow. Have borrowed someone’s laptop for tonight. Shall be updating from my phone now (if at all!).

See ya’ll! 🙂
