This is not exactly after dark, but just as it started getting dark. Still, I loved this pic from the recent trip and had to share it. This is the Rabindranath Tagore Beach at Karwar. It is said that the Noble Laureate dedicated one chapter of his memoirs to the natural bounty of Karwar.

The sea beach of Karwar is certainly a fit place in which to realise that the beauty of Nature is not a mirage of the imagination, but reflects the joy of the Infinite and thus draws us to lose ourselves in it. Where the universe is expressing itself in the magic of its laws it may not be strange if we miss its infinitude; but where the heart gets into immediate touch with immensity in the beauty of the meanest of things, is any room left for argument?
