Dhanuskodi – an unexpected find

Recently visited Rameshwaram and I got a chance to see Dhanuskodi .  Dhanuskodi is the last stretch of land where Indian ocean meets Arabian sea. A small fisherman community lives here; ruins stand here now for a town that was destroyed by a cyclone. These dilapidated structures standing alone by the shore still appear hauntingly beautiful.

Standing alone!

Waiting to be at sea.

The boat and the sea...

From somewhere far...

Even the overtly famous Chennai Express features it… the Pamban bridge. The first time, I entered Rameshwaram, I failed to appreciate the beauty of it. But then the blues and greens can really make you go all  awww…, the sight of quaint fishing-community settlement nestled among coconut trees is a treat to the eyes and I was lucky to see a train crossing by just in time. 🙂

Just in time.
Just in time.
Shades of nature.
