Day 0 to Kerala

Just packed a meagre back pack for the rail trip down the strip of Kerala.  There is a slight change in plan.

From Punalur I go to Tenkasi and from there to Madurai.  I would reach Madurai by 19.30 on the 17th.  I have an option of taking the 21.40 Nagercoil Exp and join Bharat and Shanx or wait till 23.00 to take the Madurai-Kollam passenger to Nagercoil and reach an hour and half later than Bharat and Shanx. The passenger has a First Class coach and currently, the lure of a travel in FC is beckoning me.

I might change the plans completely at Madurai. Instead I could avoid Nagercoil (and a chance to meet up with Bharath and Shanx at Kanyakumari) and proceed to Karaikudi via Manamadurai and take the MG passenger from there to Mayiladuthurai. From there, I could hitch a ride to Villupuram and catch the Vaigai Express to Chennai.

Depends on the appetite for an extra day of rail travel at Madurai.
