|After month long stay at Auroville I realized that it is not the place of my Karmabhumi.
We decided to move on.
|Call of Pondicherry beach was alluring. We decided to spend a couple of days at Pondicherry.|
|All the rooms in Retreat faces sea, one just needs to peep out for a fabulous sunrise picture.|
|There is a hotel just beside the shore temple, we decided to stay there.
The reason was mainly good access to beach.
|Most tourist spots and main market is also quite near to shore temple|
|Mahabalipuram sea is also good for surfing. Wanted to explore if this will suit my current
fitness level. After watching the process I gave up the thought of trying it.
|This beautiful beach is littered with garbage. The experience would have been
pleasant if someone bothered to clean the beach.
|Aug 28th is my son’s birthday. He is in Chennai. We planned to celebrate the day with him.|
|Greta’s classmate Shampa and our ex-neighbour Madhumita also dropped in for a quick chat.|
|Mohan is my classmate from BHU. He was out of station on previous days. Joined us in breakfast before we left Chennai.|
|Our first stop was at Vijaywada. Road was good but it was a long drive.
|We discovered a nice restaurant at Rajahmundry – Mee Food Magic.
Good food, Amazing service – the place is being setup, ambiance was not so nice
but the behavior was like a good friend or close relative.
Loved having the food there.
|Next stop was at Vizag. Hotel was very near to port.|
|A Chinese bulker slowly making its entry.
God knows when we shall have more container carriers
instead of these bulkers.
|OTDC Kalinga gives a back to home feeling. The place is just 5 hrs drive from Kolkata.|
