I am in Kanyakumari now, with my friend and Brooklyn Food Coalition’s executive director Nancy Romer, as well as a few Indian food and environmental workers.
Kanyakumari is the place at the southernmost tip of India, where three seas — Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea — have merged together.
This photo shows two famous rocks on the sea. The one on the left is the rock where Swami Vivekananda, revolutionary Indian Hindu monk, visited as a part of his India pilgrimage. Now it has a beautiful memorial temple on the rock.
On the right is the giant statue of Tamil poet Thiruvallur. The status is 133 feet tall.
To be able to be at this sacred place is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me.
I feel blessed.
Sharing with you,
P.S. — I also had a surprise birthday party here in Tamil Nadu. Nancy and our South Indian friends gave me a pleasant surprise. It was great to celebrate here 🙂
