the morning beauty of Marina Beach !

To a morning walker, the famous Marina beach offers intriguing things. There are young, old, fast, slow, and varied people indulging in chit-chatting, eating and drinking the various health drinks ! that are sold on pavements.  You can see people walking, walking fasting, jogging, sprinting, skipping, doing physical exercises, yoga, laughing out loud – more – all law unto themselves – thinking and spreading that these are the passport to good health. 

You can observe a couple of elderly Jain gentlemen distributing bread and sometimes biscuits to old, disabled and vagabonds. A group singing bhajans; some doing breathing exercise ……………….

You can hear the sea and when near sea the waves jumping and touching the shore and then submitting themselves to the shore but trying to comeback to conquer again ! – you  can see ships anchored in the middle of sea, some fishing boats and Sun coming out as a red ball from the Sea – all great sights to behold. 

Those given to enjoying Nature, the morning provides innumerable things like Pigeons and other birds, dogs – stray, and owned – local and foreign breeds of various sizes; posh cars; bi-cycles; vast expanse of sand and more…..

Today, near Gandhi beach there was some unusual activity.  Went near and saw a  pyramid like structure with footwear strewn inside; some cardboard made art representing the turtles – reportedly creatures of sea; lot of placards and illuminated board with words ‘I am so angry; I made this sign”…………  I was not able to understand or make out what these are what was sought to be represented.

Understand that these were the works of ‘Art India’ – which would be left as it is to be taken by the sea or destroyed by men or by the same who made these.

May be you know better of that – I could decipher little

With regards – S. Sampathkumar.
