In my last photo post I had introduced you with the Udaipur Beach. Udaipur beach is like a long strip of sand connecting New Digha beach with Talsari, in close vicinity to the Bengal-Odisha state border. If you web-search 'Udaipur beach' you'll see various websites and blogs describing this beach as 'pristine', 'virgin' etc, but do not take those descriptions seriously. Either those adjectives are outdated or exaggerated. Udaipur has the same filthy beach and the muddy looking Bay of Bengal that you find in Digha (or, even Puri). Only good part of Udaipur beach is its substantial length which lets you find a tranquil sweet spot of your own away from noisy beach crowd. Tourists fond of water-sports like Jet-ski will have added reasons to dig this beach. Moreover, I don't think there are many beaches in India to welcome you with your vehicle. It is of immense fun to drive/ride along the wet sand but, definitely it contributes to the damage of marine ecosystem. I know today is not the ideal day to make you read another essay. So, cutting it short: Wish you a Merry Christmas! May the joy and peace of Christmas be with you and your loved ones.
I wish I could post few church or carnival photos. Clearly I'm out of stock and with a long solo motorcycle trip knocking my helmet, I can't venture out right now with the camera (saving my energy for the imminent ride). Clicking fishermen at work ranks among "top 3 things to do" at Udaipur beach. I enjoy watching and photographing fishermen even after getting slapped by one back in 2012. Now keep pondering over the cause of my assault as I've lost my story-telling vibe. Better close your browser and get lungful of fresh Christmas air. Have great time till I return with photographs of sunrise over the Digha beach.
