OnamOnam is the harvest festival of Kerala. It is celebrated in the Malayalam month of Chingam which follows the months of south-west monsoon. Today, 16 September 2013, is Thiruvonam. Happy Onam to all my Malayali friends!

This image I captured when I was travelling on Konkan Rail two months back, when the summer monsoon was at its peak. What was striking was that the whole countryside had been carpeted with green grass. The lush green carpet spread out as far as the eye could see. The train had stopped at a signal. So I was able to get down and take a few shots. Incidentally I used my Sony Cybershot point and shot camera.
