Visit to Indian Island.
Visit to Indian Island.
There was a family whose master was a central government employee. He was on the verge of his retirement. But he was lucky and successful in his life after facing many hurdles in his life as his eldest daughter was a software engineer and she got married to a match bride. His son also completed his post-graduation in the reputed engineering college in south India. He was also employed in a reputed company just like his eldest sister. So, the master of family was quite happy man as he carried out most of the family’s gigantic responsibilities well before his retirement. He was living in his own constructed home which was the couple’s dream in their life. Good things happen with those who wait. Fortunately, his money back life insurance policy matured before retirement. So, he had a plenty of money in his hand to be spent. He had to avail his last leave travel concession facility before his superannuation. It was the first occasion in his life when he had no responsibility and enough money in hand to spend from the bottom of his heart. Till that time, he never could spend the money on his family due to forthcoming challenges time to time. He and his family would suppress their emotions every time due to constraint of money. He couldn’t please his family as they like to enjoy in their life. He went so many times on travel with his family, but couldn’t enjoy the journey as he planned due financial crises. The whole family was bound to curtail their emotions each time. He wanted that he should enjoy the fun of real travel with his family as they liked. So, he decided to go for Indian islands with his family. So he put his plan to his son as well as daughter. He wanted to take his whole family to islands on his own expenditure as retirement gift to his family members.
His son arranged their picnic tour. The master with his wife went to their daughter at Pune. From where whole family went to Mumbai airport and from Mumbai to Chennai. His son joined at Chennai from Bengaluru. He was very happy as his family and son -in-law were with him for moral support. They went to Andaman Nicobar Island on their first leg at Port Blair airport. We went to visit Historic Cellular jail where ours more than one hundred sixty great freedom fighters were jailed for freedom struggle. Until the lions produce their own historian’s stories of the hunt, stories only glorify the hunter. There was list of more than one hundred sixty freedom fighters posted on a board who were prisoned till their last breaths for the freedom struggle movement on the wall of jail for tourist. All of them were jailed for lifetime imprisonment. After careful examination, It was noticed from the list that people from all corners of the land scarified their life for freedom struggle. Of course, there was the name of the utmost discussed often, freedom fighter late Veer Savarkar. We visited his room too. It was kept opened for the tourist. We entered in that room as it was a mud attachment with him. We were also from same soil of great freedom fighter, veer Savarkar. The master of family would listen a song written by Savarkar in Marathi on national festivals in his school days. The song contains his feeling about affinity, anxiety and excitement to meet the soil. He would say to the ocean that his breath, life was very eager to touch the soil. So, ocean waves should carry his message to the land. We paid him homage in his room for his untold contributions in freedom struggle. There were many rooms in a jail for prisoners which were occupied by our patriotic freedom fighters during lifetime imprisonment.
Doors and walls of each room were so thick and solid which couldn’t be broken very easily. Furthermore, the lock system was so fixed that it would be far away from reach of prisoner where prisoner’s hands couldn’t reach. If any prisoner escaped from his room by anyway, he would have to cross huge sub-ocean. He had to travel the distance of 2000 kilometer to touch the Indian main land by sea which was impossible. Hence it was known blackwater imprisonment. There were more than 300 island in the Indian territory. We visited few of them which were very famous for Palm-lined, white -sand beaches. All these islands of Andaman-Nicobar are famous for its beaches. We saw so many beautiful spots of see-breaches on different location. It was really most surprising and entertaining spots for tourist from the land and abroad. There was ship which had shape of a Dolphin which carried the tourist to view the coral reefs in deep sea. There was such arrangement inside the ship to stand around to view various coral reefs spot in the deep sea So that all the tourists can enjoy the coral reefs. An island is more famous for its palm -lined white sand beaches. We traveled for first time in big ship on a huge water body for more than three hours to reach at Ross Island where there were many water activities like scuba diving as well as ship racing over the water. Our family enjoyed it. We also seen for first time light house for navigation of ships in the ocean. On next legs, we went to Radha Nagar beach which was very clean. We enjoyed the tidal waves touching our legs frequently. Next day, we went to Neil Island. It was very beautiful beach. We liked it too much. It was noticed that Most of the tourist avoid it. But it was found very clam, charming, peaceful and cheapest beach among all. We stayed there for whole night where we viewed roaring night tidal. On coming day, we went to see the Howra Bridge. It was natural bridge which was formed due to striking of spontaneous sea waves on the rock at the bank of Sea beach. There was very big hole from bottom of big rock upward whose top was still attached with parent body. It looked like a bridge. It was the interesting natural creation of nature. Then we planned to go for Baratunga caves where we were able to see the wild human life in the modern world. The tribal community would remain without clothes and live off fat of the land. The human in that area still uncivilized. They would go for hunting with their old weapons like fine stones, knife, arrow and bow. We saw the real primitive man which we read in the book. Their children rush to see the march of tourist cars when they hear the noise in a naked position. Tourist are strictly prohibited for taking photographs and making their videos. If they do so, they are liable for punishment as per the provision of law. It might be either heavy fine or imprisonment.
On the way, we saw some volcanic eruption spots in the Andaman Nicobar Island. The Little amount of volcanic fluid was continuously coming from the very deep interior of land. These spots are protected and under supervision of concerned department. It was the indication of volcanic eruption in that places in near future. Though its severity wasn’t so strong like fire ring in the pacific or any other volcanic sensitive places in the world, but it would be sign of natural disaster in future. After enjoying the tour of Andama island while leaving the Port Blair, we saw the famous aquarium having all types of fishes and ocean products in the museum which was extremely wonderful to watch. The family came back to Port Blair airport after full enjoyment as per their expectations. Then we took off for Chennai airport where we all landed safely. It was then the moment of separation of family. Wherefrom son went to Bengaluru and daughter with her husband to Pune. The master with his wife went to Mumbai and back to their home place. It was the amazing tour of joint family in their life which would be memorable to master till his last breath.
