Kadmat is a beautiful island which seems like a world of its own. It is cut off from the rest of the world as you have no other network other than BSNL. So it was our own sweet paradise. The sublime sunrises, the serene sunsets, the blue ocean ,white sand and corals underneath, not only help you introspect but also help in nurturing relationships and cultivating new friendship. I remember lying under the naked sky on the sand watching the million little stars and beautiful moon reflecting on my life. They are the most beautiful nights of my life.
We got particularly close to one family, father mother and their daughter who was of same age as us. She was into advertising by profession, a traveler by choice and an adrenaline junkie. She became my husband's snorkeling partner. I was pregnant at that time so wasn't allowed to go scuba or snorkeling. Well, they shared the sights of many beautiful fishes and corals under water while I relaxed on the beach with her mother. She was a mother to me too there, feeding me fruits and coconut cream, saying it would be good for the baby. She inspired me in so many ways, to be fearless, independent, happy and positive. My husband, she and I took long walks across the length of the island sharing so many stories of our previous travels, our professional lives and so many things about our lives. We had our meals together having animated conversations.
The 7 days just flew by and we again boarded the boat for the return journey. This time we were all friends with each other exchanging phone numbers, sending friends request to each other on Facebook and creating Whats App groups. Its been 2 years now, we have moved on in our lives but the memories of our time together stays back.
