Sorcerer's Bird

The sharp look, the screeching sound, the long watchful silence of owl has given it a place in the mythology. There may be no other bird talked more than owl in the mythology all over the world. The poor lovely bird has been described as symbol of evil in Celtic while the Hamites of Abyssinia  worshiped them as sacred beings. In our land, each part of owl was seen as a medicine!. The eye soup of owl was used to treat the seizures in children, the owl meat was seen as an aphodisiac.

Ariyaman beach : Unexplored India

Rameswaram is a very sought out pilgrimage travel destination. On the way to this religious place there is a gem of a place called Ariyaman beach. The water is so shallow that you can walk around a km into the sea with water just about the knee depth. This lovely unpolluted beach is lined by tall trees which adds to the beauty. The palmyra tree which once in a while stand along the other wise sandy beach is a beautiful view. Some snapshots from the Ariyaman Beach.
