Leaving for Alleppy in an hour, Tomorrow afternoon is the famous boat race, Nehru Trophy. Takes place every year 2nd Saturday of August. Planned all of a sudden, my style of traveling, just hop in to the train.
Took these pictures a few years ago, this is just a practice session at Thiruvarpu near Kottayam
Cherian, my friend was with me, it is very close to his house.
This team reperesents the village, they start practicing one month before. After each practice session, the villagers arrange sumptuous food and Charayam, (country liquor) for all the members of the team.
