    hello

    on first and second of this month we had been to guruvayoor and athirampalli
    the falls such a huge one with water gushing all over...a treat great....!

    it is the falls that is shown in punnagai mannan a tamil movie...
    wonder why whoever will want to suicide from that point...one has to just take a hutment and live in showering bliss... movie aside..

    we had a dip dip and dip in the water that flows before it falls...i take some seeds with me...small ones that can be taken in the handbag...who knows we may be growing mango or tamarind or neem......and make a forest all our own?

    so as i looked into my bag only the pumkin seeds i had got from someone for my garden was there along with some manjaadi seeds
    (the red ones used as weighing pebbles for gold...i got this from seeds that were scattered in guruvayoor temple...taking from a temple..? i felt...but then im not going to eat it ...sure is for spreading...birdy me...!)

    we had a fun time throwing it into the water..and see it sink and perhaps flow down the falls and run along and become pumkin bearing trails...pumkin all over the place...really huge ones...bearing huge pumkis ..!
    gosh now whatever will happen to those pumkis......? please help ...im worried...!(trouble spelling pumpkins...im so worried you know...?)
    (no im not counting my chickens..oh no... pumkins before they hatch..oops..bear tiny pumkis...)

    Sathya - The Green Queen of IL - Your pumpkins will make their way into the kitchens of many homes. There will be a pumpkin sambar in someone's home, a pumpkin pie in another, Erisseri in yet another home, Pumpkin pachadi in another..................................Soon Athirampally will be known for its pumpkin and every tourist to these falls will come home with a prized pumpkin as memento.

    Manjaadi's.....the birds would drop them in our courtyard and backyard. We used to collect them to play palanguzhi.

    Don't worry about all those pumpkins,just send them here around October during Halloween...you can make a huge profit selling those here!:2thumbsup:

    Manjadi...hmmmm....brought back some wonderful memories...we had this huge Manjadi tree in our school and we used to collect those colourful seeds during lunch time and bring them home...we used to have it everywhere around our house then....Even remember using them for making crafts...WOW!!!! School days...will it ever come back:-(
