Kodaikanal, located in dindigul district, Tamilnadu. This one is near Palani hills. Landmark city is Madurai.
From Coimbatore, our usual road trip is through Dharapuram, Batlagundu and then Kodaikanal Ghat Road.

This time, friends informed about the Palani Ghat Road which is less in distance, so traveling takes less time also.

Small Wonders in the morning sky
Humming birds fill up the horizon
Daffodils and Roses in the air
Lilies and Lotuses bloom the pond

The Mountains

None can move it
The Wind, The Clouds
The Sun, The Darkness
Always a Sage
Telling the Truth of Life
To Live and Let Die
In a Peaceful Way..

The King Edward Memorial hospital (KEM), Mumbai, where she joined as a junior nurse, kept and looked after, after the sexual assault made by one ward boy, on November 23rd, 1973.
Authr Pinki Virani wrote the story of Aruna shanbaug and in her book, "Aruna's Story'. 
The author narrated the incident and the after’s as such,  “Sohanlal Bhartha Walmiki choked her with a dog chain before raping and robbing her, oxygen supply to parts of her brain was cut off, and she became bereft not only of the power of speech but of the power to express herself in any other way. She also became cortically blind, lost the use of her limbs and the control of her muscles, and suffered a kind of emotional disability, which is manifested in a inappropriate laughter and bouts of screaming. Her memory and most of her other mental faculties were also gone..”
