Enchanting Seasides: Tranquebar (More photos)
Standing by the sea, all alone in the morning, I watched the sun make its date with dawn. I reconnected with myself on the shores of Tranquebar. There is something that is soothing in the constant flow and ebb of waves. Tranquebar is all about the sound of waves, going by its local name, Tharangambadi. You may travel solo or as a couple, but the little town with a single street is where a long-lasting affair with life begins.
