Our office had its annual day today at Mascot Hotel in Trivandrum. It was a nice event with a lot of programs. Here I have uploaded a short overview clip of the programs during the event at YouTube. You can watch the same by clicking on the image or by directly going to YouTube.

Kerala is considered "God's own country" not because of its people or the state of affairs or the government, but because of the pristine natural beauty of the countryside. To find the real reason click on the picture on the right. The Onam holidays allowed us to visit some of the most beautiful places on this planet.

August 22nd  2006 ONAM POOKKALAM
It is that time of the year again where we celebrate with putting up pookkalam all over the place. This year we start off with Ernst & Young placing the first pookkalam in the lobby of Gayatri building. More pookkalam photos will be added as and when they become available.

All of us from Ernst and Young had a day out at Isola Di Coco, a resort at Poovar, approximately 30km from Trivandrum city. Had a fantastic day and great lunch. We left a little early in the afternoon before the party ended. A few photos are posted in the coppermine gallery. This time I carried my new camera, the 10.3megapixel Sony DSC-R1. I kept the maximum resolution down to 5mp so that I could take more photos, but in the end I took just 60 photos

MAY 6th 2005 A Trip to Edathua and VeegaLand
  It was a long standing demand from my daughter and wife to visit VeegaLand. So once Sheeja's project pressures were slightly down, we decided to make the trip. Started from home around 6:30 in the morning and reached Wyte Fort by 11:00.
After lunch we went to Veega Land and had a nice time till 6:30 in the evening when they closed down for the day.

On the way at KTDC drive in, I met the twin brother of Shebu and thinking it was Shebu, started talking to him. This led to some funny situations.
On return we went to Edathua, turning to Thiruvalla from Ambalappuzha. This took us through Thakazhy, in front of Siva Sankara Pillai's house, which is now a museum, and also through a ferry as one of the bridges was under renovation. Click on the photo to see more.
MARCH 21st 2005 Return from Germany
I was on a two week visit to a German client site. Unfortunately I was down with "Windpocken" two days after landing there and had to rest for the remaining part of the two weeks. No Office, no shopping, no travel. It was the most boring 10 days in my life. More details available in travelogue.

SEPTEMBER 15th,  2004 Domain

Decided to register the domain www.royj.net

Went to Net 4 India dot com and applied for registration.
AUGUST 23rd 2004 ONAM
What you see here is the pookkalam created during the Onam season. Onam is the traditional harvest festival in Kerala. I am not going to describe about Onam or its history here, there are so many other places in the net where that information is available.

This pookkalam shows one of the winning entries in the pookkalam competition held at Technopark
