An old fort, the rhythms of the sea, and stories of the tsunami
NEW DELHI :
It’s cheesy, I know, but this place should really be called “Tranquilbar". Or, at least, be known only by its Tamil name, Tharangambadi, which means “land of the singing waves" (say the name aloud, it feels like a lilting melody). The song of these waves, punctuated by the steady drumming of rain on rooftops, gave us company through our two days in Tranquebar.
