It rained on the day I visited there. The chillness outside, got spread inside me too. The drizzling drops of rain, gave a wet and fresh feeling on my face. My parents and I went there at that time.
After that, it was on my day of marriage, again I stepped there. It was summer at that time. But still, the surrounding was cool, may be because I were happy and me always happy and thanks to GOD for giving me such a nice gift of life.
Though there are lots of beautiful tourist places are in nearby distances, around our home like Silent valley, Athirampally falls, I cannot write about those locations, since I haven’t visited those places yet. But, the heart throbbing Adakkaputhur is more than all those places. You will feel the same once when you finish reading this page.
This is our beautiful home with loveable people living in.
With the blessings of GOD, no evils affect us.
Our home is surrounded with all lovely flowers, coconut trees, and mango trees. I have created a seperate post to show the beautiful flowers alone.
Varities of coconuts and mangoes adds to the beauty, in front of our home.
The backyard of our home has lots of plants like turmeric, pineapple, cashew, varities of mangoes etc…
Once, we got 5 mangoes in a single branch of a tree. Those mangoes tasted great. Yummyyy…..
There are lots of medicinal plants available and I don’t know most of their names, except Tulsi. Our mom and dad love plants. Whenever they find a plant, they will bring it to add beauty to our home.
In the front side of our house, there is a well and people around our house used to take water from there, as ours is the only house which has water even during summer. GOD blessed us J
Just before our house, there is a beautiful quarry, which always has water, even in summer it won’t go down.
Whenever we go home on holidays, my husband can be found swimming in this quarry. He loves swimming, even for the whole day.
Our ancestor’s house is at a walk able distance from our home. The way to ancestor’s house if fully surrounded with paddy fields.
A breath taking location, isn’t it?
Our ancestors (grandma and grandpa) samadhi is there in the side of the tharavaadu (ancestor’s house).
During the month of February, a special function called “Pooram” is celebrated all over Kerala in Bhagavathy amman’s temple. We couldn’t attend that function so far. But luckily, we attended another one interesting function called “Annai Chooruttu”, which means feeding Elephant.
On that day, people will go to temple, where elephants from various locations march.
People who booked in advance with the temple trust can feed those elephants. My husband and I got that chance. Our mom kept screaming from upside, whenever we went near to the elephant J
It rains during the months July and August. Though some people hate rain, as it spoils their work, I always loved it. The fresh smell of soil, sipping a hot cup of tea sitting in the balcony, dripping water from the leaves of the mango tree, everything attracts me. I’m longing to go home.
I love making paper boats and float them in the water around our home 🙂
My boats got sank L
The clean plants after a fresh shower.
The next important people of our home are, our mom’s pet hens. She loves them a lot. She names them and takes care, that sometimes we fight saying she loves hens more than us 🙂
Our mom kept nagging our dad, and finally got the castle built for the hens. How is it?
I have a lot more to add dears. It will keep going and will never ends. So, let me put a force full stop 🙂
Thanks for reading.
