How do you account for too many kind deeds done to you , how does that affect you? and your actions towards others? This is the story of Aneesh AbooBakar from Paravur near Cerai Beach who is the assistant manager at Ballard Heritage Villa

Unique Qualities: To get away from the sudden downpour, we walked into this shiny new hotel. No auto rikshaws or Buses coming this way.. pouring rain. He invited us in, offered us coffee and offered us mangos and kept us company until the rain abated. and told us about his family and about the history of the hotel. He also called Cerai Beach Resort to find out some information for us. Truly hospitable Malayalee.
On our return we decided to stay at this hotel and were treated very very well.
