I am at Cochin for the festive season.
This year Christmas seems to be rather subdued. Some say it is in remembrance of the victims of 26/11. If true, that is something noble.
There is not much of color lighting. May be it is because of the bad power situation. Decorations and celebrations are also down. Last night, around midnight, I had a long drive across the city. There were hardly any carol groups on the streets.
I am told that liquor sales are also less. That is something unusual for Kerala. Are people being patriotic, or tightening the purse strings in view of financial the meltdown? Will this mean more mosquito menace after Christmas? To understand this question, you’ll have to read
Season’s Greetings to all of you
