Adam's Bridge, Talai Mannar (2016)

Adam's Bridge, also known as Rama's Bridge or Rama Setu, is a chain of limestone shoals, between Pamban Island, also known as Rameswaram Island, off the south-eastern coast of Tamil Nadu, India, and Mannar Island, off the north-western coast of Sri Lanka. Geological evidence suggests that this bridge is a former land connection between India and Sri Lanka. The bridge is 50 km (30 mi) long and separates the Gulf of Mannar (Southwest) from the Palk Strait (Northeast). Some of the sandbanks are dry and the sea in the area is very shallow, being only 1 to 10 metres (3 to 30 ft) deep in places, which hinders navigation. It was reportedly passable on foot up to the 15th century until storms deepened the channel: temple records seem to say that Adam’s Bridge was completely above sea level until it broke in a cyclone in 1480. Adam's Bridge starts as a chain of shoals from the Dhanushkodi tip of India's Pamban Island and ends at Sri Lanka's Mannar Island. Pamban Island is semi-connected to the Indian mainland by 2 km long Pamban Bridge. Mannar Island is connected to mainland Sri Lanka by a causeway. The border between India and Sri Lanka is said to pass across one of the shoals constituting one of the shortest land borders in the world. Adam's bridge and neighboring areas like Rameswaram, Dhanushkodi, Devipattinam and Thirupullani are mentioned in the context of various legends in Ramayana. There are approximately 20 such sandy islets along this line of which 8 are completely owned by Sri Lanka. The border runs right in the middle of the 9th Islet and both sides keep off this in order to avoid confrontations. However illegal fishing by South Indian Fishermen is a frequent occurrence and the illegal trades such as drugs and goods are also a lucrative business for people from both sides. We visited the 2nd Islet belonging to SL and the 3rd Islet is a Wildlife Sanctuary for the Seagulls. It’s being protected by the Wildlife Department of SL with the help of SL Navy. SL Navy has a permanent garrison based on the 4th Islet in order to confront the illegal fishing and trade in addition to protecting the Sanctuary. Unfortunately the sea got fierce after we planned to visit the fourth islet so we had to abandon our plan and return to where we started to Urumalai or Urumanai. Special Note for the Viewers: I’ve done this video to make other human beings aware of the beauty of this place and please don’t misuse this information in order to ruin this place. I’ve spent so much of time/money bringing this to you so that you may enjoy it. However I’ve a very kind and humble request from you all. Should you ever visit this place, you’re kindly requested to adhere to the following in order to save our Mother Nature (essentially Our Country) not only for the future generations but for the current one as well: * Avoid careless/reckless/irresponsible/money-oriented/mega tour groups or organizers. * Travel in smaller groups as Mother Nature can’t afford so many footprints at once. * Minimize the use of polythene/plastic and do bring back if you have to take any with you. * Don’t litter and even if it’ bio-degradable, please bring it back and dispose of the garbage properly and responsibly. Because no matter what it is, it will still be alien to that environment. * Use reusable water bottles so that you don’t have to keep buying plastic ones. It’ll not only save you money but will help save nature massively. * Remain quiet and vigilant. Don’t disturb the tranquility of the nature. Instead savor it. * Try and bring if you spot any litter/garbage left behind by other careless travellers. * Don’t light fires unnecessarily and do try to use portable cookers instead of using firewood when camping. The increase usage of firewood leads to more deforestation even at a smaller scale. * Don’t bring any plants back with you or break any plants/branches unnecessarily. * Don’t walk off the designated footpath. * Don’t use soap/detergent/shampoo when bathing in natural streams as they’d only lead to the contamination of those pure water sources and elimination of wildlife species. * Don’t do anything that harms the Mother Nature.

I Adopted Rich People’s Habits, See How My Life Changed

Learn the secrets of success from those who built their own empires from scratch. You can try adopting the habits of super rich people and see how it will help you save money. Successful people are rarely night owls; they go to bed and wake up quite early. So this was the first habit I decided to take on. By the end of the first week, I noticed that I was able to do way more before noon than I could ever do during the whole day. One more week into the experiment I started waking up completely well-rested and excited to start a new day. Self-made successes swear by exercising every day for at least 30 minutes. After just 10 days, it already became a habit. I became more concentrated and calmer. If meditating helps successful people stay on top of their game, it should help me out too. Networking is like currency for successful people. A lot of successful people (like Steve Jobs, for instance) keep a super minimalistic approach to fashion, often wearing the same outfit every day. Truly smart and successful people control their expenses and don’t spend their money on useless things.
