Monsoon odyssey to Munnar

Munnar is a a beautiful hill station  on the Western Ghats of the Indian state of Kerala.The name Munnar is believed to mean “three rivers”, referring to the town’s strategic location at the confluence of the Madhurapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundaly rivers. The heavy monsoon had given bath to the entire hills making it a verdant oasis.

It kind of ended with “Kathakali” and also realizing that my camera has stopped working – because of heavy shooting
in the rains! I realized it couldn’t auto-focus & I couldn’t set the aperture and with the lens removed it was clicking fine! Next day I was destined for “Allepey! ..and a photographer without a working camera! well.. I secretly thought iphone might just save the day.. wait for the next post.. “Adventures on using a defunct camera”
