"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"

In this world "DREAM" is miscellaneous to every human being's living journey, so as mine too. On my childhood I loved to wonder but due to my father's work & one side mind on education, my lust was almost lost. I started counting my days to become a job person that I can put my lust on 1st gear.

My dream is to wonder the world on a motorcycle. I have never had any doubt about fulfilling this desire. In 2013 I started feeling the lust was just few steps away as I joined an integrated steel plant as a Maintenance Engineer. ​When I finally made the decision that I was going to do this, the world responded. One by one the steps presented themselves and I took action with ease. As a mad bike lover I purchased six nos of motorcycle from 2013 to till now and started my journey on 2014 (Kolkata to Digha,udaipur,tajpur,mukutmanipur), on 2015 (Kolkata to Gangtok,gurudonmar,darjelling,kalimpong), on 2016 (Kolkata to Rourkela), the epic one to the land of biker's paradise on 2017 (kolkata to Ladakh,manali and return) on 2018 (Kolkata to Purulia) and continue..........

Like such facilities on new Digha, Old Digha is totali diferent. You cant have your swim there as it risky and consist of huge bolder and sea fills with quicksand which took life every year. Cost guard and beach police are always there for safety

Day 2

Next day on 21st January we leave our hotel from New Digha for site scene. Went to MOHONA which is just few kms away. Its a river & sea estuary point also known as the fish bank of DIGHA. You can have a great sunrise over there, will see varieties of fish and a great place for drone cinematography.

Tajpur is located in Purba Medinipur, in the state of West Bengal, India on the shore of Bay of Bengal (near Digha). Tajpur is set between Mandarmani and Shankarpur. Tajpur is 170 km from the state capital Kolkata.

As a tourist attraction, it is relatively new as there are fewer hotels compared to Digha and Mandarmani. The beach is clean and home to numerous red crabs and sea stars.

It's hard to catch them

The convenient location of Tajpur is the major cause behind the emerging popularity of this sea beach holiday destination. Surrounded with patches of forests this sea shore destination truly offers great visual pleasure
