I must admit I am not a big fan of Zoos! I think I have hardly been to just one or two of these in my life. But my recent visit to the Nürnberg Tiergarten was such simple fun I am wondering why I have skipped the visits to these wonderful places during all my earlier trips!(more…)
“Are you ready?“
“Yes pa; Ram and Roja are dressing up.“
“What about Ranjith?“
“I don’t know where he is pa; Kutti Mani said he saw him near Parvathy.“
“What is that stupid fellow upto anyways? The show is about to start in another 20 minutes.“
There was nothing to guess here. Kuttappan was certainly tensed. Never in his life had he been so nervous before, not even when he began his career 25 years ago. He was just 22 then.

The puppets dangle from the strings,
The puppets are here to dance,
Moving to every little movement
The puppeteer decides to make.
The puppeteer swings a thread,
Cuts another, and entwines two in one;
The puppets know not what is next,
For, there are no rules to this game.
They have no senses, but believe they do,
For the puppeteer is a master at this play.
To think with one end and survive with another,
That’s all there is to this silly little game!
