I was in Rameswaram last weekend to pay homage to one of our heavenly God – the Rama!! It was a novel experience, something which I never experienced before: floating stone, a waveless (calm) sea, taking holy bath across 22 holy wells!!
Keeping these experiences aside, what will always remain green in my memory is the sight-seeing experience. If you simply ask me – I don’t think there would be any place as such when it comes to sight-seeing!! You must be wondering whats there to see in Rameswaram except archaic temples..and you are absolutely true in that context! What I am talking about is the novelty of sightseeing mode & one of the sight-seeing points.
Sight seeing mode – Auto Rickshaw
Sight Seeing Point – Our former President Dr. A.P.J Kalam elder brother’s house
Now, I have never witnessed any place where the auto-rickshaws take you for the sightseeing tour. Funny it may sound, but this is the mere truth. You approach an auto-driver and ask for the sightseeing tour. Immediately he will take out a travel card kinda stuff with a list of sights to visit in Rameswaram. In total there were 8 sightseeing points and you also have an option!! Whoa!! If you chose the complete tour it will cost 250 (ekdum fixed rate!! No bargaining: is there mantra!!),and if you omit one point then its 150 bucks!! Kewl..!
So, I had the first time ever opportunity to go for a sightseeing in an auto-rickshaw. Well, this comes with a bonus – a free guidenwith the auto..as the driver himself was the guide
