While writing my blog yesterday at 3AM, a thought suddenly came to mind which solved a problem that I've been facing for the past few days.

Cheered in happiness at 3 in the morning ! 🎉🕺

In programming, sometimes you feel on top of the world and sometimes in a bottomless pit.

I just blogged about it, "Rickroll, Love Calculator & Social Engineering" : subinsb.com/rickroll

It's about how I became victim to Social Engineering and how I almost got my Facebook account "hacked".

There's a special tree in my home growing out from an old well. It's been here even before we settled here.

Every summer, this tree bears small yellow fruits. A lot of birds come here to eat this including the large Hornbill (വേഴാമ്പൽ). We're lucky to see so many birds in this special tree. Koel (കുയിൽ) like this tree the most. Every evening is a singing fest of them.

Nobody knows the name of this tree and we haven't seen this anywhere else. My new hobby is to reproduce this unique tree.

We set up a birdbath when the summer started and everyday we see birds, cats, mongoose and other animals finding it useful <3

Crows take a complete dip in it and their head movements are :D 💯

Apparently, in 1942 a communal riot happened in Kunnamkulam Angadi between Christians and Hindus. I got to know about this through Malayalam Wikipedia. The current generation Kunnamkulam folks don't know about this.

Here's to why Wikipedia documentation is important.

Walked from town to home today. It's a 45-minute walk. The walk became a photowalk and I've now just uploaded 20 photos to Wikimedia Commons.

Kunnamkulam Angadi is a street made in shape of a cross. The houses are old and unique. It's an Agraharam granted by the king Sakthan Thampuran.

The streets are changing, old houses are torn down and new houses are coming up. What can I do, but to preserve history by capturing them and uploading to the largest human encyclopedia :)

I wonder, did some people just picked up some sticks, heard that it makes good sound, so gathered around, started moving, put in a good music and made this artform ?

This small church is one of the oldest churches in India. It got destroyed very badly in the sudden 2017 storm of Kunnamkulam. Reconstruction made it more modern, ewww.

That storm also killed off a plaavu and mathil in my home.

Rare usage of "ക്കു്, രു്" : This is how old Malayalam was written. I've been to this church many times, but I've never noticed these.

Went to the oldest church in Kunnamkulam today, which also has the largest cemetery in Kerala.

Captured a lot of pics, explored and uploaded them to Wikipedia.

A storm in 2017 caused huge damages to the church. It has changed a lot. I should have done this before that.

Found fellow college mates practising Thiruvathirakkali (തിരുവാതിരകളി) with the song lyrics written in Manglish.

These peeps are one of the reasons why I developed Manglish app.

It was when I joined college I realized, there are a lot of malayalees who can't read Malayalam.

Why is there a temple named "Thalakkotukara" in the heart of Kunnamkulam ?
The place Thalakkotukara is 15kms away from kkm and there's no other place named Thalakkotukara in kkm.

But why, but why, but why ?
