Freedom Walk: Day 25 - Thrissur to Chalakkudy

day25-200x200_0.JPGToday we set off a little unwillingly, for the weather was great to be curled up in bed on a lazy, overcast Sunday morning. The weather played its customary game of "drizzle till they pull out their raincoats", and we obliged grumpily. Our destination was Chalakkudy, where Anoop's relatives would host us.Click Here to Read the rest of this article

Freedom Walk: Day 24 - Pattikkaadu to Thrissur

day24-200x200.JPGWe set off a bit earlier, for we had arranged to meet with the Thrissur users' group, a very important group, given the amount of technical expertise and experience this group commands. We hurried through about 14km, and made it to the venue, fashionably late, once again. The issue of reaching destinations on time is becoming increasingly common, and really needs to have some effort put into it.Click Here to Read the rest of this article

Freedom Walk: Day 23 - Alathur to Pattikkaadu

day23-200x200.JPGWe left Alathur early, for we had a long way today, we were thinking of attempting to reach Thrissur at one go today. The estimated distance was about 48km, about 16km more than the best we had done to date. However, Prasad was not feeling very well at the beginning, and we couldn't make up our minds about what to do until well towards breakfast. At this point, at a lovely little local "Kaapi kada" ( Cafe ), Prasad was considering going on by bus towards Thrissur and having a rest at Sooraj's Parents' place.Click Here to Read the rest of this article

Freedom Walk: Day 22 - Palakkad to Alathur

day22-200x200.JPGToday was a busy day of programmes. We had three programmes organised for us today.We were met at Hiran's home by Mr. Babu Antony and Mr. Shamsuddin (of KSEB Alathur division office).

The first programme was at the PMG higher secondary school. A reception at the computer training course by Mr Jeyaraj, (who is IT @ school, Palakkad - Master training co-ordinator), was the first event. We gave an overview of our objectives and ideas, and managed to network with the educated group. This was a good start to the day.Click Here to Read the rest of this article

Freedom Walk: Day 21 - Thachambara to Palakkad

day21-200x200.jpgWe set off from Thachambara as early as possible, given the atmosphere at our stopover. The walk was quite scenic, with the classic Palakkad scenery of whisps of cloud hugging the silhouettes of the fringes of the Ghats, providing a mesmerizing backdrop.Click Here to Read the rest of this article

Freedom Walk: Day 20 - Thazhekkode - Thachampara

large_dscn3159_0.jpgToday being Sunday, we decided to make as much towards Palakkad as possible. Early in the morning, we left for Thachambara, where stay had been arranged, again by Lohi saar. We would now be approaching Palakkad district, and made good progress in the morning. The sky was overcast and a slight drizzle kept the heat down, which added to our energy.Click Here to Read the rest of this article

Freedom Walk: Day 19 - Malappuram to Thazhekkode

large_dscn3036.jpgToday we set off from Malappuram town, early enough for Anoop to be interviewed by a news channel. The interview went quite smoothly, and we were to find that the publicity would be quite handy on our onward journey. The rest of the walk was rather event less, except for the beautiful sights and sounds of Malappuram district, our destination being Perunthalmanna. A program had been scheduled at MEA college of Engineering, in Perunthalmanna, and stay had been arranged at Thazhekodi, about 8km from Perunthalmanna. Click Here to Read the rest of this article

Freedom Walk: Day 18 - Thalappara to Malappuram

day18-200x200.jpgToday we decided to think big. The estimated distance of our walk would be about 50km. Setting off at a good pace from Thalappara, we headed off aiming to reach Perunthalmanna by midnight. Following the highway as far as Vengara turned out to be pleasant to the eyes, and obnoxious to the nose. Every bit of of the way sides of the highway had been littered with restaurant waste. Mostly chicken waste and other organic matter. The plastic or Jute sacks in which these had been collected had ruptured and we had to wrinkle our noses more than once at the stench of chicken innards and rotting flesh.Click Here to Read the rest of this article
