Glimpses of Konkan Through My Sketchbook

I spent the last 5 days in Konkan, the beautiful coastal area of the Maharashtra state where I reside. It was a different world, with endless scenic vistas, rustic life in villages, and best of all .. no cell phone coverage!

These are some of the glimpses of Konkan through my sketchbook.

A Dry Stream – in the village Kurdhe. Pigma pens.

Reach for the Sky … A Parasailing experience

I had my first wonderful Parasailing experience when I visited the town of Diveagar in Konkan as a part of an adventure camp in 2006.

Diveagar beach is a spectacular and clean site. The parasailing team attached our chutes to the back of a jeep and drove over the beach at high speed. We reached nearly 100 feet in the air.

The videos were shot with my Nikon Coolpix 4300 digital camera. The camera has a capacity to shoot low-res videos of max 40 seconds without sound! Doesn’t it sounds so primitive now? Still the information captured in those low-res videos was so interesting that I decided to make this little video of my own here. Hope you like it.
