********************The Paradise Of South India********************
"Kovalam Sea Beach" which is also known as " The Paradise Of South India" is just 16 kms from the City Thiruvanantpuram of Kerala.
Literally "Kovalam" means a grove of coconut trees and true to its name the village offers an endless sight of coconut trees.
Beaches Of kovalam:
has three beaches separated by rocky outcroppings in its 17 km coastline, the three together form the famous crescent of the Kovalam beach
1 Lighthouse Beach
The southernmost beach, the Lighthouse Beach is the one most frequented by tourists, Lighthouse Beach got its name due to the old Vizhinjam Lighthouse located on a rocky promontory here. Its intermittent beams at night render the beach with an unearthly charm.[4]
2 Hawah Beach
Eve’s Beach, more commonly known as Hawa Beach, ranks second, in the early day, is a beehive of activities with fishermen setting out for sea. With a high rock promontory and a calm bay of blue waters, this beach paradise creates a unique aquarelle on moonlit nights.
3 Samudra Beach
A large promontory separates this part from the southern side. Samudra Beach doesn't have tourists thronging there or hectic business. The local fishermen ply their trade on this part.
Tourist facilities
There are a large number of beach resorts in and around Kovalam. The sea port of Vizhinjam is about 3 km away and famous for its special varieties of fish, old Hindu temples, big churches and a mosque. The Proposed International Trans shipment Terminal at Vizhinjam is also close to Kovalam.
Kovalam was among the most prominent tourist spots in India during the hippy era. It still has a high status among tourists, who arrive mostly from Europe and Israel.[citation needed] Kovalam is finding a new significance in the light of several Ayurvedic salons, and recuperation and regeneration resorts which provide a wide variety of Ayurvedic treatments for tourists.

26 Years!!
Its not only me who turns 26 today, but i love share a moment with India's rarest n powerful locos.
Yeah, ASEA-BB WAG-6A's n Hitachi's WAG-6B/C's turn 26 this year.

26th anniversary, though these have arrived on unknown dates ranging from October 1988 to December 1988.
The snaps were taken by me:
1:- WAG-6B MUED, shot taken at Simhachalam North, accompanied by my close friend n IRFCA Veteran Jyothish Kd, dated Jan 2014.
2:- WAG-6A twins, shot taken at Simhachalam North, accompanied with Amarnadh, close friend n also the silent Admin of IRI, back in 2012, on the special Mission WAG-6 Hunt.
When they arrived, the babies aka WAP-5/WAG-9 were still under production back in Adtranz.
Til 97's, they have topped IR with the highest horse power, but soon the descendants took over, but these hunks did their work silently, faced lot of issues, as IR wasn't ready to handle a technology which is much advanced in those periods.
Only 15 of them are active, n still work silently in the hearts of Dandakarnya Forest region.
Happy 26 Yrs, Long live Fellas!!
