Project 365: Day 364 – The big day is tomorrow!

30th June 2015 – Mamallapuram, India

The quest is close, and one day remains

Don’t judge me when I say I did nothing today.

I’ve had a hell of a year, and survived it.

I deserve rest in my own serene and calming way.

Rock temples in Mamallapuram, India

Serenity at the end of a storm – Mamallapuram, India


Maybe it was a good thing that my family visited me here.


I find myself relaxed, without any timelines to chase or to get back. So, I decided to stay one more day in Mamallapuram, and explore it a little bit with my folks. And it wasn’t so bad as I thought.


I may have been in Mamallapuram countless times before, but there is always something new to see. And that was true even today. I had no clue that Mamallapuram had a lighthouse museum, and a maritime museum. Well, both are pretty Spartan alright, but still it was quite interesting to take a stroll through museums with my parents. And dang, they take more selfies than me!


We also visited the Krishna’s butterball, a giant rock that somehow defies gravity and stands perched on a small mound. There were a bunch of Korean tourists who were very keen on taking pictures holding on to the rock, as if to signify that they were holding it up. Just a little to the left, was a rock-cut temple. Mamallapuram is full of rock-cut temples. So, I dont even know what the name of this one was.

Forgive me for being lazy, but all I can think of is that I just have 1 last day for this project!
