There are times that you have to be at the right time at the right place!
Here is a photo captured by an Aus-Lankan while touring in Sri Lanka. One of the infants of the monkey is enjoying a drink from his mum while the other is having a cuddle.
Daljit Raj Chelliah a keen photographer captured this moment at the top of the cave- temple hills of Dambulla (தம்புளை) located in the Central Province of Sri Lanka.
The cave temple is archeologically conspicuous land mark of Sri Lanka whose inhabitants dates back to the third Century BC. During 10 -12 CE Dambulla was ruled by the Viceroy of Raja-Raja Cholan of Tamil Nadu.
The photo was taken few years ago at Hikkaduwa beach in Sri Lanka. On a hot summer day king coconut water is heavenly. The coconut water is sweet and healthy and a wonderful re-hydrant.
King Coconut is native to Sri Lanka and referred as “Sev -izhanheer” in Tamil and Thembilli in Sinhala.

At this juncture, lets reminisce an old song “I got a lovely bunch of coconuts” composed in 1944 by Fred Heatherton. The re-make of the song in 1950, sung by the vocalist Merv Griffin with the Freddy Martin and his Orchestra was in top 10 hit in the USA and sold 3 million copies. Hope you will enjoy the number as I did.

The photos were taken at a Kathakkali dance performance at Fort Cochin in the Indian State of Kerala. Vibrant natural colours used as facial makeup. Prior to the performance elaborate makeup for the dancers were done in front of the audience. Bravo to the makeup artists.
