Malayala kadaloram... (By the Kerala seashore)

I believe Malayalam is the most beautiful language only next to American Sign Language! I associate the sign language to dancing while Malayalam to music. Recently we enjoyed few Malayalam movies which renewed my long forgotten fondness for the language. For the next few days & weeks we attempted to speak only Malayalam which sparkled laughter for each sentence...

Since we are from the Kerala/Tamil Nadu border we can understand both languages very well. I always feel Malayalam is so full of meaning than Tamil. It is fun even to watch a day-to-day conversation in Malayalam. The people are also very charming with their glowing skin, jet black hair and simple cotton wear... their unique style and sense of humor can't be missed.

If and when you get a chance, try to visit the southern Kerala sometimes, you will be amazed at the beauty and simplicity of life out there... The dense coconut trees, rubber trees, the creeping pepper plants, the careless yet bountiful home gardens, the scenic mountains, landscapes, the beauty of the seashores, will not fail to amaze you.

I will try to gather some pictures and post it here on my next visit...

Malayalam is a very beautiful language. Whenever we visit India, we always go to Guruvayoor. After staying there for 2 days we return to Chennai. Then for a week or ten days, our spoken Tamil will have that Malayalam mix. It is that much intoxicating language.

"Be still, and know that I am God".

You know how profound this is? God exists in all. You agree. But what does He exist as? He exists as 'I Am'. The 'I am' in you is God. And the 'I am' in you and the 'I am' in all is the same - it is God Himself.

I Am That I Am

'I am this individual' is ego. But the pure idea 'I Am' is God Himself.

Hi Uptake! Thank you for stopping by.

The verse means we need not fight our case, we just need to be still, and see how God fights our case and brings us victory...

Thanks to All and we feel nice when u speak about Malayalam.

I have the same beautiful views regarding Tamil though Tamil is not my mother tongue. I feel Tamil culture is more rich than ours. Hai...Tamil guys/men are very courteous to women, some what like Arabs to their woman. The temples so grand as we see in Tamilnadu are seen only rarely in Kerala though we are blessed with beautiful natural locations.

Welcome all to God's own country...
