Visit to god's own country

After the spicy trip to trivandrum last year this time we were off to kerala once again for the final year industrial visit. This time it was cochin, the queen of the arabian sea. The trip turned out to be a thrilling experience. As usual we started late from the college and  reached cochin late. Cochin is a beautiful city with wide roads and the buildings illustrated the architectural excellence of the people. After the short stay at the room it was time to visit TCS. In the evening we went to the cochin harbour and it was great to see large ships moving in and out of the port. We spent around one hour there watching the various war ships of Indian navy. The guide also pointed us to the war ship that destroyed the karachi port. Managed to take a lot of snaps there. After dinner it was time for some game play. We started playing cards at around 9 pm and kept going till 4 am. We were playing the game of ass and it was quite interesting. Subramani and Musi took turns and lost the game 6 and 5 times respectively. They were closely followed by prabakaran with 4 and nirmal with 3. I lost the pen ultimate game ending the successfull run of 18 games withoug loses. Ramji remained undefeated that night but lost many times the next day. This game of cards turned out to be the most interesting part of the IV.

The next day we were off to Athirapally falls where the film "Punnagai Mannan" was shot. The view of the falls was splendid and it was interesting to see that the area has escaped from the human beings as it was clean and well maintained. We spent the whole day there enjoying the beauty of the falls and the cool breeze. Finally we departed from cochin and returned to madurai. The return journey in the bus was dramatic, thrilling and funny. Though we spent a lot of time in bus than in visiting places, lot of funny incidents would  linger in mind for a lot many days to come. Will upload the photos soon, keep in touch with http://picasaweb.google.co.uk/sens2003.
