Laughing In The Face Of Violence In Kochi, India

July 23, 2013

no more violence

In Kochi, Kerala I was walking down the street one evening to get some dinner. The street was narrow, but there was a functioning sidewalk – a bit of a rarity for India. I was walking behind two ladies. I’d guess they were in their 50’s and both were easily identifiable as Muslims from their […]

Pushing The Boat With A Bamboo Pole

The local language is Malayalam, but if the people there speak a second language it’s English, not Hindi. There also seemed to […]

Volunteering With AMURT At The Pundag, India Railway Station

As I mentioned in my previous post about the Indian ashram I stayed at, it’s very rural and remote. The local train station, for example, has no drinking water facility.

The answer, of course, is more than one and here’s the story (and if you’re curious, within 43km there are three different cities that start with the word Bokaro). As an Indian you have to reserve train tickets far in […]
