The Tender Coconuts decorated with Crimson Hibiscus and the Man who sells them from the shore

The tender coconuts decorated with hibiscus in crimson are so delightful a sight that charms the visitors who come across the shore of Mahe Islands in Seychelles.When they are under the shades in the midday sun, among the thick leaves of the surrounding, they add beauty to the shore and comfort to the people around in a cool manner !

DSC_7881  The tender ones fulfill the thirst of the mass regardless to the age and enable the sellers to have their livelihood.So they attract the needy by displaying these fruits with a taste of artistry and care…!

Young and the Old and the Windows in Glass….!

It is curious to see that the young and the old people sitting behind the glass windows before the dining table to have their meals, especially in the morning.While the young are upright awaiting their dishes, the old ones remain inclined towards themselves before having what they have had for the breakfast !The glass windows reflecting the morning lights make a halo behind each so as to enlighten their lively attitude of age and taste.!

The Generations and the Sea….!

The generations meet on the seaside ,they pass the techniques of how to make a merriment of life out of the shore and the water over to the next ones to build up what is to be done beside the sea and upon the hard rocks emerging out .The grandma teaches her grandson how to fish from the seaside with the latest hooks and the grandfather sits on the rocks watching them by keeping the toolkit…..,  a scene in the  noontime when the light is bright and the wind is live …!

The white corridors of Srilanka in the morning

The sun rose over the airport of Srilanka on May with the flags shining atop dancing in the cool wind in the morning!After the less busy checking at the counters in the morning flight, the halls inside remained calm as most of the passengers vacated the inspection desks inside…outside the building,the sun rose up!spending a few minutes inside,I came out and awaited my cab to the place of stay in Srilanka;the cabin,after half an hours’ ride,brought me before the seaside resort which proved to be quite rustic but modern in outlooks;the whitewashed walls and tiles provided a feeling quite homely besides being a modern architectural set out as a whole…the wind-glowing white corridors refreshed the air inside and highlighted the daylights into the rooms;the view was very nice and bright!!

The shore against the bright light

The wind pleasantly blown through the windows and the sea smiled with twinkling waves while I looked out to see a statue-like silhouette of a coconut tree on the sand against the upcoming sun in the sky of the Srilankan shore of  golden sand…
