Note for Lucille:
This picture was taken in Portugal; 12,000 km from Cochin, I believe.
Oru Venal Puzhayil:
“Ripples flow out to the green banks.
For many births my heart has been searching for you.
In a heaven which is covered by sun beams,
In a cage which is wrapped with fragrant leaves,
I am being awakened from my meditation because of an enchanted butterfly:
Because of you…”
Though music, language and customs may vary, romantic sentiments across the continents remain remarkably constant.
