Kadalundi River

Often ornamented in lyrics of (g)olden classic songs of Malayalam movies,
Kadalundi river sat at a height in the minds of artists of those times.
It’s an important water nerve flowing through the district of Malappuram, Kerala, South India.

This wide sight from the Kadalundi bridge marks the end of the river.
After this point (towards the left), the river playfully mingles and merges
in to the Arabian Sea. But, until this time it rejoiced having run about
a 120 km journey, its core currents swiftly flowing to reach the mother—
sea, while widening its network into rivers, streams and creeks……

From Kadalundi bridge

…… But this vast river once took birth from a west-corner of Western Ghats, probably looked like this:

Mountain stream

In the thickness of the evergreen forests and the occasional sun baked rocks, flows the cool and crystal-clear natural mountain stream, singing a tune that never once repeated, giving a bit of its taste to all who quenches from it—even to the roots of grass, maybe even to the driest rock stones that felt a thirst by just looking at this innocent flow of water.
