Yes that’s cliched. Because my words won’t be able to do justice to the sunset we saw that day. (Not an HDR)

Morning Catch

Gokarna is a beach town situated just south of Goa, and is known for its beautiful pristine beaches, its mythological roots, as well as the regular flow of foreign tourists.

While walking on the Gokarna beach on the morning of Diwali, I came across this curious boy looking at a group of fishermen bringing in their morning catch.

Go… karma?

Pune Mirror 21st Jan 2011 last page - GoKarma In the Diwali of 2010, two bikers headed southward from Pune, not knowing what obstacles they’d have to cross on the way to their destination – Gokarna.

And two months later, they did not know when Pune Mirror would put their story of this trip on the back page of their paper. They came to know only today, when they started getting messages from ecstatic friends about becoming famous et al.

Without further ado, here’s the online version of the article, though it doesn’t mention Nipun’s name or mine. But then, there’s always the ePaper version for you to see the article in full glory!

Footsteps: Gokarna Beach

The Gokarna Beach, though not as famous as the Om Beach, makes up in the people there what it lacks in “terrain”. That day we found fishermen, riders from way up Delhi and way down south living in tents, foreign tourists reading old books, shacks that served awesome pancakes and mashed potatoes, a six-pole contraption which was decorated with rice-lights, presumably for the occasion of Diwali, and we hadn’t even covered half of the vast stretch of this beach!

Flickr Love: Peace

This picture of a tourist meditating on the Om Beach at Gokarna has registered more than 500 views on Flickr since last evening, when I uploaded it.

The last picture that got such activity was the photograph of Aditi picking hermit crabs on the beach at Dahanu.

Why don’t you show it some love at 500px and on the NatGeo Magazine site?
