A whirlwind outing to vibrant Kodaikanal with Badri Vijayaraghavan culminated in an enriching photo op experience that will last forever!

As expected the weather was refreshingly cool in comparison to the microwave season in Chennai, but the swelling crowds and vehicle noise at the hill station was most stifling.

Nevertheless, Kodai retains its exclusive charm in spite of the odds. I have showcased some pictures below of life around Kodai.There is also music playing in the background in slideshow mode !

Wow. Great images. B&W is classic. I like the Rowing pics in particular - biased that I am! Feel like taking the Scull out in Kodi the next time I am there. I know you are young Badri - you don't need to stand next to the Oldest Tree to prove it! Did you guys ride through on the bike or was it a trek? We should get together sometime and make some music.

Cheers!

Wow, Rags. Those images are amazing. Striking, well composed, sharp, and downright artistic. And a mixed bag of very interesting subjects. Your stuff was great before, but it keeps getting better and better. A pleasure to view your stuff. Keep up the fine work, my friend.
Is there a magazine or online magazine in your neck of the woods that would publish these?
Sending all the best, and thanks for sharing these.
