The Napier Museum | April 10, 2008

The wrought iron fountain stands to the western side of the Napier Museum in Trivandrum. It’s a handsome Victorian piece from when the Industrial revolution and its effects of unbridled enthusiasm in invented things and technology were peaking. This fountain, though, shows no impudent flourishes.

This fountain stands within one of the few public spaces left in a growing city with shrinking land spaces.

I spent hours of stolen time here during my college days. The sedately laid out spaces and the somewhat formal gardens surrounding this fountain made me feel comfortable, like some cherished visitor, not some fugitive intruder from the rigors of academic regimen.

About the Napier Museum itself there is much to tell but that’ll have to wait.
