Thiruvananthapuram retains its charm

The huge trees in the middle of the road, old buildings and narrow roads have, in recent times, given way to a change in landscape with modern multi-storey buildings and wide roads.

This has given Thiruvananthapuram a new look.

Having lived there for more than two decades, I have seen a lot of change over the years. Although life has brought me to a new city, the years I spent in the capital city of Kerala remain crystal-clear.

Airfare for Rs 599 and less!

During my last visit to the city, after more than a year, we decided to take a day off for a fun-filled day of sightseeing.

Thiruvananthapuram or Trivandrum, I found, retains its quiet charm.
