strolling through marine drive

The floating restaurant in Marine Drive, Cochin.  It is now in abandoned state, yet is a lovely sight.  We had a stroll through the walkway of Marine Drive on Sunday.  It was a busy day for the walkway.  May be because of the Ship Enrica Lexi, which was embarked at the oil terminal and which is visible from the Marine Drive walkway.  The police and Coat Guard of India captured the vessel which was allegedly involved in the killing of two fishermen while they were catching fish in the coastal area of Kerala.

Beautiful picturesque view from the walkway when the sun was about to set.

The sunset picture with the new port and cranes in view...

The most important part of our journey may be the street artist whom we saw.  He was a handicapped person with only half of the hands.  With the chalk held between his disabled limbs he was drawing beautiful picture. Many people were watching and some of them were donating money.

Dearest Jyothisethu,

Thanks for your visit the day before yesterday and sorry for not being able to come back. My PC had problems and that took all of my time.
Poor person with the disfigured hands... was he a leprosy victim? They have the hardest time for making a living! It is tough and sure they deserve some coins from others as a well spent charity.
Love to you,
