I experienced the magical charm of the New Year's Dawn for few years and it conjured all sorts of symbolism in my mind. In the past two years, I made it my point to watch the first dawn of the year from a new place. And the perfect location of the Indian Pennisula made the experience ever-enriching and novel each year.
Year by year a completely new and enchanting scene unravelled before me in the sky at dawn. These spectacular sunrises rendered a symbolic significance to the new year and make one awe at the Paradoxical constant of variable Nature.
SUNRISE AT KALAPATHHAR BEACH, HAVELOCK ISLAND, ANDMANS.
Location Alert : Bay of Bengal
I am a beach person through and through but I could hear the hills calling when I saw this mesmerising sunrise from Kalapathhar Beach at Havelock Island, Andmans. The clouds covered the horizon barring the view beyond in the Bay of Bengal as a mighty mountain range. (Yes, Nature gives a daily dose of paradoxical surprise if you have an eye for it.)
