Images- Uttara Kannada

Blessed are those who wake up to sunrises as these! Tucked away from the urban chaos and pollution is a picturesque village Navilgone, in the Uttara Kannada district along the west coastal plains (konkan) of the state of Karnataka. It’s a privilege to walk along the winding streets dotted with quaint homes on either side- seasoned, tiled-roofs, and surrounded typically by areca nut, coconut and banana plantations. An endearing sight we love to return to anytime.

As far as a few minutes’ walk from the habitation, is a stretch of open space. Walking along the earthy trail, dewy grass grazing our feet is something more than a dream. The icing on the cake is when the Sun makes an appearance and steals the show.

A befitting end would be to catch the Sun setting in the Arabian Sea. (Vannalli beach, Kumta), and we did.

The most amazing poems aren’t written in words.
