Invitation from Hyacinth Panioty
“Varu……. Welcome to our beach house in Kannur, in northern Kerala. It faces the Arabian Sea, and appears to strech away to infinity. Close by is our nearest neighbor a small quaint fishing village. Everytime I look out of the window and note the conspicuous absence of jostling crowds, I feel that the beach, with its extensive strech of Golden sands, belongs to me, and me alone. The serenity and the hushed sound of the breakers (waves), along with the tranquility of the sorroundings is the soothing balm. Which most city folks dream about. It is what their frayed, stressed out nerves desperately to recover their sanity and recharge their mental batteries.
So if you are toying with the idea of visiting us, we shall be delighted to place the first and second floor of our home at your disposal. The accomodation does not possess the glamour and glitz of 5-star opulence. Far from it. However, its cosy and reminiscent of a home away from home.
