Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise. – Benjamin Franklin

Catch the morning rays of the sun on your face. Bask in the warm golden rays, and you will feel wonderful. Take a brisk walk in the open, and enjoy the gentle morning breeze on your face. The morning sun is a good source of vitamins that gives your body a healthy look.

A shy tribal girl hiding away from my camera, Attapadi, Palakkad, Kerala. 1993-

During our visits we come across so many such incidents. But nobody given them any attention or come forward to save their children.

 Today the reports says the number of infants who lost their lives due to malnutrition in Attappadi in recent months has gone up to 32.  Malnutrition and being underweight was stated to be the reason for the infant’s death. As far I know Such incidents being reported from Attapadi from past. The tribals been exploited and mislead for long.  Why  today Attapadi get enough attention and for what?

Attappadi is an extensive mountain valley at the headwaters of the Bhavani River nestled below the Nilgiri Hills of the Western Ghats. It is bordered to the east by Coimbatore district in Tamilnadu, on the north by the Nilgiris, south by the Palghat taluk

Its an amazing experience the moment we reach Hatu peak to view this. Hatu peak is situated above 1152 ft from sea level. 8 km from Narkanda, the road is surrounded by pine and spruce trees. On top of the hill, ancient Hatu Mata temple is located. The peak offers spectacular view of the entire Himalayan ranges, snow clad mountains and in depths are the dense forests, green fields and apple orchards.
