I LOVE MALVAN!!





MY NATIVE PLACE MALVAN.....ALONG THE KONKAN COASTLINE....SINDHUDURG DISTRICT....MAHARASHTRA...


i recently visited malvan, yes after a long time..it being a 12 to 14hrs journey by road to reach there.....the last time i visited there 2yrs back with my frens was wen we all resident doctors were on a strike n i was totally taken up by the richness of the place...n i had to go again....
it is full of wealth..true valuables...the sea..the trees..the fruits...the fish...the air...the sky....n the fertile land...it makes me feel so proud wen i watch this immense beauty that i belong to this land...
there are several beaches tarkarli,chivla, where one can take a dip in clear blue waters that change colours as the sun sets...n the white sand that slips under the feet with lots of colorful shells that i kept collecting greedily like a kid...n not to forget that we had to be literally pulled out of the water as reluctant as we were to return back home..yes i was accompanied by my sibs n elders ofcourse...who had dedicated themselves on keeping a watch on us:) so my sis n me secretly went up one morning jst to realise it was not safe to go sailing to the sindhudurg fort due to the winds :(
i heard abt the recent jatra... "aangnewadi"....involving around 15 lac people in the religious procession a few kms away n we visited the temple a few days later...jst wondering how it must be to accomodate such a crowd in the temple of the goddess.......
it was not jst the tourist spots but also the small things that brought a smile to my face..... the marketplace was busy.... full of chikkis ,wadis, chivda,ladoo all homemade out of watever u can imagine...cashewnut,coconut, rice, poha,moong,syrups from avla ,kokam n more....n unfortunately there were no mangoes yet.........
i jst loved the colorful boats...the several cashew fruits hanging on the trees...the kacha kairis tempting to pull at them...the seafood...the vada pav....n everything....
it dissociated me from evrythng so unreal we crave for..n i wanted to be there for longer..even the site of my redundant house made me feel like a proud owner.....
yes m greedy for this wealth of beauty...n probably more than that....i think its this land that speaks to say .."come u belong to me"..n i will crave forever to hear that..... again i love malvan... n eternally......
