After a longtime, I went to Qurum beach last Friday only to find the place had lost most of its pristine glory at the hands of the devastating cyclone, Gonu. There are the usual crowds, children playing, families chit chatting, but you get a feeling that something, somewhere, is amiss. I shall let the pictures to talk for themselves.
The damaged main road. A small rivulet around the vicinity is making the re-building process tougher I guess.
Families enjoying their weekend.
The beach is littered with small stones and pebbles making it uncomfortable to walk.
This is how the Qurum beach looked in August 2006.
