Sea Port of Kakinada – Tourism Disappoints

14 October, 2009 at 22:09 Leave a comment

Just a nice water colour rendering of the old sea port of Kakinada in Sakshi Sunday supplement by an artist called Vasu as an accompaniment to an article about the erstwhile fishing village and trading centre. It is said that the town is famous for a sweet called “kajaa” (fried layered gramflour soaked in sugar/jaggery syrup) and for peacocks (strange name for a bird for I have never seen no pea nor cock)…

I have been to the place in question but it never lived up to the billing of the article. In fact, I did not even know that the dusty hot hamlet had a history going for it till I read this piece. I guess it is the same with everyone. We read all these pamphlets and brochures in tourism shops and books and when we land in the promised place, it is just the same as your place – only more confusing and boring. No one is feeding exotic food, dancing in crowded dance clubs, giving away freebies et al. No Sirree!
