This sunset silhouette over the Viper Island, a small member island of the Andaman and Nicobar groups, may look picturesque and peaceful but its history speaks somewhat different. It is the very island near Port Blair where Indian political prisoners used to be barred and executed by the British before the Cellular Jail was built. Presently, otherwise uninhabited, this Viper Island is a tourist spot to be visited on a cruise boat. The ruins of the sinful gallows atop a hillock may incite pain in your heart and interest to revisit those pages of history which narrated all about the Indian struggle for independence.

Sunset from the Viper Island
He has been blogging since 2007, and the pen often runs out of ink, but thankfully the mystic spirit of traveling-clicking-storytelling always reconquers Anunoy before it gets too late! In his early childhood, Anunoy’s craving for backpacking was sowed by his father. He has been a rolling stone ever since, forming passionate bonds with motorcycle touring and photography to add more layers to his wander lust. Between see-sawing a small family and a thankless job, Anunoy Samanta manages to run his own photography cum travel blog- Clicking Photos on the Go. You may catch up with Anunoy through Facebook or Twitter.
