The fight over the bridge

Who would have thought the Adams bridge, a seemingly harmless shoal formation between Danushkodi and Mannar could become the centre of a nationwide controversy, thanks to its inclusion in our mythological tales by some really good storytellers millions of years ago. Cant blame them really, cmon with no TV or internet porn, you gotta come up with some really believable stories to shut the kids.

Anyhow, all eyes are looking down south now and people are flocking to Rameshwaram to catch a glimpse of this formation thats almost led to the dismissal of the Tamil Nadu Govt and enough heat in the parliament to power a few thousand homes.

The formations cannot be seen from the ground, but  become visible from a higher altitude, as you can see here.

 So why am i interested in the Ram Sethu all of a sudden? 

An email has been dispatched to them ofcourse regarding the license violation 🙂
