Driving down the marine drive I could recall the old odia poem by Pandit Godavarish Mishra on "Ramachandi re Sandhya” which depicts the serene, calm and quiet evening at the beach describing the weather merging with the scenic beauty of the river and sea confluence. Where the birds fly on the tune of waves, the red turtles play on the silver sands, the waves slowly vanish on the lap of the river and sun sets leaving the evening lights for us to cherish.
On a lazy day followed by some pouring, we started to drive towards the scenic side of Orissa’s coastline and the favorite is obviously the Puri Beach. But the inquisitiveness for exploring more wanted us to go beyond Puri and made us land on one of the most scenic routes of India. Its the Puri-Konark Marine Drive road that mesmerises every single heart passing through.
