It was a 2 days stay, the resort was different in its policies, one of those that promote eco-tourism but in different package. one of their key values says "Benefitting the local community" and they do.They have their own bio-gas plant, do vermi composition to generate fertilisers, very much self -reliant..i should say. They have a butterfly garden, i found this a bit unique.. learnt a bit about butterflies ;-) they boast of about 95 different varities through the seasons.. i learnt that butterflies does not necessarily look for plants with nectar, breaking the myth.They have their own organic farm.very impressive.
you must be wondering what did this couple do on a holiday visiting organic farms and bio-gas plants ..Ha Ha..for those who know us, that shouldn't be of a surprise ! Their accomadations are brilliant and i am saving their best for the last .. they have rooms that offer private pools and we availed one of those.. It was a great experience to have your own pool ;-)
Their in-house ayurvedic doctor was so amicable, he educated us on Ayurveda and its essentials.. I have shown keen interest in ayurveda off late and more so after my wedding , after all , the heath of the family is in the womens hand..;-) So, i enjoyed that very much too..
The beach is accessible from the resort and is being well-maintained by the resort.. i found clean white sand for the first time ever in India, probably the second after Goa.. Litter free ..phew..i was delighted.. calm and peaceful..lovely indeed..
We even went cycling around the village, kerala villages are different and potrays a richer picture of Indian villages...brings in a sense of contentment..
Finally , the staff on the resort were exemplary..!! I dont wanna say any further.. If CGH's Management is advocating living in harmony with nature...then what better way to do that , with their friendly staff..
After any vacation, my mind would say "No more vactions for the next couple of months", but this time around, i was already planning for the next :-) Kerals is always special and will keep coming back...Marari or any of CGH's property would be the right choice..

By knowing sanskrit , one has the advantage to comprehend the most profound and rich knowledge of ancient India..The ancient scripture has accounts of mathematics, physics, medicine,astronomy, philosophy, law and the like. you name it and you will find it. We have such rich database yet we are in search of the modern solutions... No they aren't outdated, much of it still to be discovered by modern world..
If your past interests you, here is the medium - Samskritam..

As tiny toddlers, in your arms we grew,
Imbibing the virtues of being honest and true.
Disciplined in your deeds, endorsing values that comes of age,
Evolving in your principles, blessed we are to be born in your lineage.
In your personification of compassion, we reckoned the power of unity,
Flaunting kindness, benevolent to all, thy, an epitome of humanity.
In safe hands, under protective care, molded we were, by dearth of fortitude,
With viciousness afar, we comprehended the world finer, not deterring our attitude.
A loving husband, a sincere officer, adorable sibling to a dutiful son being the foundation,
Etching the perfect roles in life that many of us look up to as an inspiration.
Caring father, a very fond grand dad, above all a fine human being,
A rarity blended into one, sets him apart, much to everyone’s liking.
We all love you Daddy !!
This is to my beloved grand dad, who reached the heavenly abode on 21st March 2009. He has taught me what to be and what not be in life.. Miss you.
As i grew, i decided to do something to command our respect back.. today as a part of a dedicated team, we feel the key to India's growth lies in 'Education'.. The knowledge that ancient India gave to the world is lost in our own lands.. we teach less fortunate children to equip themselves with knowledge and bestow India with righteousness.. Our group is called Dream India , a registered NGO...any body who wants to volunteer , can visit www.dreamindia2020.org to know more about us..
A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.. India was and is , one such candle. Let us strive to understand her..
Hope you enjoy here !
