Dindigul, Tamil Nadu to Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu
28.12.2010 - 28.12.2010
So today I would be reaching the farthest destination, the Kanyakumari after that my return will start.
The longest lift: While driving on highway, I usually give lift to the locals; I don’t think it dangerous and if it is than it’s become adventurous. Most the people asked for next nearby village so it is usually 10-15 km but today I gave lift to a very poor man and he traveled with me 150 km. obliviously we don’t know each other language so I try to tell him where he want to go, he tell me to proceed I stopped on a Dhaba and we took some tea unfortunately Dhaba people also don’t know single word of English or Hindi. Finally when I cross one major city I become sure that this person doesn’t know where he is going , I stopped by a truck driver and told me that this person sitting behind me since last 150 km and I don’t know where to drop him. The truck driver talked to him and I doubt was right. He supposed to be dropped 5 km before in that big city juncture. Anyway while I say goodbye to her he beg for some money, he was really looking poor, when I gave him 10 rs, he was touching my feet .Too much poverty.
The Machine city: (a Must See view)
The road was smooth and after dropping him I covered in good distance a suddenly, before e25 km to Kanyakumari. I saw lot of wind mill 10 20. 50 and numbers kept increasing. This giant wind mills standing behind the coconut trees, seems like making fun of them. I felt that I am entering in to a machine city of movie “the matrix”
Kanykumari I reached at 4 pm, too ruch of tourist, room rent was only 2000 to 3000 rs
I just make 2 rounds along the cost and Good bye Kanyakumari and I enjoy my saving with blender’s pride that day.
It almost looks totally different when I start driving along this west coast of India, people, culture, girls all are different d=from TamilNadu , although it is TamilNadu. I search for next town and very soon I found one cheap lodge with Hindi speaking typical Malayalam owner.
