Chimmony's gift of bounty - Helicteres isora plant
8 Oct 2011 12:54PM

The beautiful Helicteres isora plants delight with their omnipresence in the Chimmony forest (Kerala). At some stretches, they almost form a border along the forest trail.

Kuttan, a Malaya tribal, who was our chef and later guide! He knew the names of almost all of the trees when we went for a trek inside the forest, he kept saying “This is Yedambiri.”

And look carefully - don't they look like the miniature of a bird, perhaps a red bird with a long neck - say perhaps a red ibis, a flamingo or a scarlet Ibis.
