This picture – of my niece Raja Kamilia, reading in the boat is one of my favourite. It was taken during one of the many boat rides we took while we were in the Great Backwaters of Kerala. After experiencing the boathouse and the passengers ferry, we decided to take the small boat so we can truly venture into the smaller canals and get a closer look at the villages and the people living in this self – sustaining community.
Blessed with 44 rivers and a network of lakes and canals that stretches over 1500 kms, the Great Backwaters of Kerala is undoubtedly a captivating miracle of nature unlike any other on this planet.
