The small island of Ross in close proximity to Port Blair is mingled with stories and ruins of past along with the beauty of nature. Once the administrative headquarters of the group of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, it held the position of prime importance with rich and luxurious structures equipped with all amenities, far off from the mainland. After the realm of such opulence, the rich glory gradually came to an end with the earthquake and subsequent seizure by the Japanese.
Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the Emerald Isles of India always fascinated me in various ways. Sometimes the shade changing turquoise to blue waters, sometimes the pristine silver to the golden seafront, the long stretches of coconut groove that line the shores, the lush green vegetation, the mangrove forest, the extraordinary marine life, the serenity of isolation… all keeps enticing me. Being there is a bliss of my life. I treasure those memories calling them alluring, wondrous, charming, graceful, curious, romantic, amicable… and abounding.
