Kottayam, Kerala

Change is inevitable. It's the fundamental force that shapes the very fabric of existence, from the grand movements of galaxies to the subtle shifts within our own hearts. . From the gentle caress of a breeze to the mighty roar of an ocean wave, every action, every thought sends forth vibrations that reverberate through the tapestry of existence. Ripples, something invisible yet profound. A notion that even the smallest actions can have far-reaching consequences. A promise of renewal and transformation. A chance for potential growth, for evolution, for the emergence of new possibilities from the depths of uncertainty. In a world often overshadowed by grand gestures and monumental achievements, we invite you to embrace the magic of the minuscule, the magnificence of the mundane. For it is in these moments, these small yet significant acts, that the true essence of humanity resides. Ripples - a reminder that within each of us lies the power to shape the world, one small ripple at a time
