The work place

We took the room where Rene always stayed on his winter retreats in Northern Kerala.

Though our motives were mixed, our aims were specific. We had come on a formal fact-finding tour to track the impressions and traces of data with regard to the tenuous details surrounding the demise of René Laubies on 13 November 2006 at Wenlock Hospital, Mangalore; and what is more, to hermeneutically decipher the seaside villages of Kotikulam and Palakunnu and sumptuous Kappil Beach. We would furthermore explore a train-hour north around the seaside communities of Manjeshwar, Kanwatirtha and Bangra.
