Neelabh merges in sunshine, water, sand and air becoming the vast the ocean he was.
At 6 am about 14 of us reached the Elliot’s beach where we immersed Neelabhs ashes deep in the sea. Sumir went with one of the Fisher folk went till the point he was not lifted off the tide, but the fisherman went further in and immersed the two urns of Ashes. It was a very peaceful experience. With the rising sun, sometimes hidden behind clouds, then finally rose up shimmering the waters. We sang songs Celebrating nature, water, waves. The tide going up and down.
After being at the beach we walked down the promenade drinking coconut water and then ate one of the best “tiffin” breakfasts at a place called Murugan.The great foodie Neelabh will always be remembered.
