White Sands

White Sands

The white sands were a magnet for tourists,

while activities like paragliding and scuba diving were fun, hardihood was key

They loved lazing on the beach

and getting scuttlebutt from friends,

When they were bored

they acted as if all the information was recondite

100 word fiction: Inevitable

As the number of coronavirus cases and deaths passed one grim milestone after another, he felt that God had only been delaying the inevitable as far as his and his family’s health was concerned.

While he always adhered to all the regulations as specified by the health authorities, he also knew that life couldn’t be locked down forever. Humans are social animals after all.

Even after things opened up, he avoided the busy areas like restaurants, theaters and malls. But he did eventually go to open spaces like parks and beaches to get his moiety of happiness and fresh air.

This was the dream getaway for the two lovebirds. Lounging by the beach and getting some much needed tan, they couldn’t have asked for anything more on this honeymoon.

While Panama wasn’t their first choice, they eventually decided on it after glowing reviews from their friends. With some of the most beautiful beaches in the world where they could laze around all day long, they were having the best time of their lives.

But his boss’s arrival at the same hotel with his family in tow was a bolt from the blue. From that moment on, things weren’t the same.

They always loved going to beaches where there wasn’t a lot of crowd just so that they could relax in the calm and tranquil surroundings. They had grown weary to the point of being burnt out from their day jobs and finally when they did get a chance, they packed whatever they could and took off to Punta Cana.

With sunny climes, beautiful palm trees coupled with lovely sandy beaches, this was surely heaven on earth. While they spent their days walking hand in hand and sunbathing, their evenings were all about romantic dinners saying sweet nothings under the stars.

We all keep cribbing about pollution of all kinds from air pollution to noise pollution each and every day of our lives. With many of India’s cities in the top 10 most polluters on the planet, we are used to smoky air for breathing and noise many decibels higher than what our ear drums are generally used to hearing.

There have been numerous awareness campaigns and initiatives to reverse or stop polluting the surroundings. From planting trees to using renewable energy like wind energy, hydroelectric power, solar energy and nuclear power, from using public transport to the odd – even car policy in Delhi, there’s a lot which has been done for our future generations to breathe clean air and live a life free from all the noise around us.

Microblog Mondays: Travel motivation

I recently watched two travel videos of places which are as different as chalk and cheese and poles apart quite literally in terms of distance as well. While one is known as the Jewel of Arabia, the other is renowned as the Land of the Midnight Sun. While one is known for it’s deserts and culture, the other is known for its snow capped mountains and scenic landscapes.

Interestingly, there are some similarities as well in the fact that both are surrounded by water on three sides and are also famous for their fjords.

What struck me about these videos were the overall story, the music and the detailing which had gone behind conceptualising them. While there maybe many other better tourism videos out there, these two stand out for me for their sheet aw

Kuwait diaries: A walk at the Marina Beach

The winter months in Kuwait are the best time for taking a stroll at the numerous beaches. The maximum temperatures at about 12-15 degrees are way cooler than the 50+ degrees it rises to during the summer months.

Taking advantage of the same, I stepped out for a walk at the Marina beach a few moons ago. And I must say it was a pleasure just watching the tranquil waters of the Persian Gulf with the cool breeze hitting one’s face.
