Andrea blogged recently under the title ‘Forgotten’ seehttp://hereisandrea.wordpress.com/forgotten/
With her consent I offer a post on the theme ‘Forgotten’ showing a timber fishing boat, likely built at Mandvi across the mouth of the Gulf of Kutch, on a deserted beach some 2 miles walk from the city of Dwarka, Gujerat, India. Details on the anchor post, deeply scored by countless raising and lowering the anchor are evidence of a busy life, now abandoned and forgotten and at the mercy of the elements.
Dwarka is one of seven most holy places for Hindus. The city was built by Vishwakarma on the order of Lord Krishna on land reclaimed from the sea. It is believed the city was destroyed by rising sea water upon Krishna’s death and the site of the present city engulfed several times since around 3000 BC. Recent investigations have revealed the possible existence of Krishna’s original mythological ‘lost city’ off the coast, lost but not forgotten.
