When we reached Bangaram, we were welcomed with super sweet natural coconut water which took all our tiredness away, then I was shown to my cottage next to the coral island and there the sand was totally white. After I freshened up, I went for evening snacks and then went for a stroll the island. The guide asked me to cross through shallow waters which led us to a sand bend ..that actually was a piece of land in between water surrounded on all sides with water. A lot of fish eating birds were also there on the sand bend. I spent some time there and post that we were taken for dinner. After dinner, I sat outside my cottage in a hammock watching glittering corals in the sea side; they looked like tiny stars put in the water at night. I enjoyed the silence and nature and lost count if time. I dint remember when I went off to bed, but as soon as I hit my pillow I dozed off.
Next day was our adventure sports day- Snorkeling, Under water diving(Scuba) , Kayaking, Butterfly surfing…you name it and I did it. It was so much fun and exciting. Post that I was taken by the guide to Thinnakara Island via speedboat where I tried my hand at fishing. In the beginning, it was a bit difficult but as soon as I got the trick, I caught a total of about 50-60 fishes. The evening was spent in walking around absorbing the beauty of Thinnakara. Around 5pm, we visited another island Preue, which was an isolated island, uninhabited, localities’ used to visit this island only for fishing and taking coconuts from there. This was the last island in the vicinity, we couldn’t see any island from Preue.
We stayed there for 1-2 hours and we came back to Bangaram Island. At the island I started chatting with the localities’ who were very friendly and we got around playing carom board, cycling and having tea with them till late at night just chatting with them. Late at night I went to see the magical corals in front of my cottage as this was my last night at the island. I went to bed not really wanting to go back but I realised that some rest was required before flying back to home.
Next day 12.30 pm was my flight and we left from the island unwillingly around 10am.I felt very sad coming back and the vacation felt as if it had just begun. I reached Kochi around 2pm at noon and from there my next fight was at 8.00 in the evening for Delhi city. So, since I had some time with me, I took a cab to Athira Pally waterfall which was again a very beautiful spot. I headed back to the airport which was one and half hour away from the waterfall. I caught my flight on time and bid goodbye to all the scenic places I had treasured forever in my head for the rest of my life. With a promise to myself of returning back at Lakshadweep sometime again, I parted with a heavy heart.
