HOW WE REACHED THERE
We have started early around 7 a.m. It was bright and sunny as we crossed Dakhineshwar and approached Bombay road or AH-45. We paid toll thrice (Rs. 45, Rs. 95 and Rs. 90). The condition of the road was only partially good because there were several diversions and speed breakers enroute. We stopped at Kolaghat for breakfast and tea. We have taken masala dosa & tea.
After breakfast we started again around 10 a.m from Kolaghat . The stretch of about 30 Kms between Kolaghat and Nandakumar is fantastic and the bollero was easily running between 110—120 Kms/hr. Though West Bengal government put green hoardings of direction and location. Still I would remind the first left road goes towards Tamluk. The straight road goes towards Haldia and the next left turn moves towards Contai and Digha. From this point the road gets narrower. This is the SH-5. The Contai bypass which avoids the congested Contai town will be on the right. After crossing the central bus stand the bypass ended. One has to continue straight. At Chaulkhola the left turn is towards Mandarmoni. Within 5 Kms from Chaulkhola,Balishai will come.From there one has to take the left turn for Tajpur. The 6 Kms stretch between the Balishai and Tajpur is a beautiful metalled road with waterbodies on both sides. The hotels start approaching on the left. Sagar Kinare, New Sonar Bangla and Mouchak comes first. In fact Mouchak looks pretty good.
From Kolkata, it is 180 kilometres to Tajpur. Regular bus service (both government and private) is available from Esplanade, Dunlop and Garia. One has to get down at Balishai and hire an auto or toto or a cab. If you opt for trains Digha-bound trains are the only option for those travelling exclusively to Tajpur. Trains are available from Howrah Railway Station and tourists need to get off at Digha Railway Station. From Digha, the distance is 19 kilometers and tourists can hire a cab and cover the distance in 20-25 minutes.

OUR ACTIVITIES AT TAJPUR
We came back Tajpur once again around 5 p.m. mainly to see the sunset. Peace, serenity, contentment a mixture of these creates the unmatched feeling that overwhelms me when I’m at this beach, watching the constant flowing of the waves.It is me on the beach, allowing me to enjoy the sunset, undisturbed. The sun, a fiery sphere, looks like it’s gradually receding into the waters below. The sky consists of an assortment of shades, a blend of reds, oranges and yellows. The waters below mirror this effect. The sand below my feet is the same color, making me feel like a firewalker – daring and bold. The contrast created between the dark waters and the luminous sky makes the horizon look like a meeting of two worlds – the known and the unknown. It’s breathtakingly beautiful, and I’m speechless as I stand before this magnificent sight. As the dusk sets in, the colors of the setting sun add a charm to the place. We sit down at a shed for a refreshing drink of fresh coconut water. Sitting in the shed as darkness descends, we lose all sense of time.
We came back resort to start our night party with both hard and soft drinks along with snacks consists French fry, chicken lolly pop & chicken barbeque .Around 11 p.m. party ended. Next morning I woke up around 6.15 a.m. mainly to witness sunrise on beach. Early mornings and their sunrise are quite special. You have to learn to appreciate them. You often forget what it’s like to wake up early and just sit back and enjoy the moment of a fresh start of the day. You try to stay in bed as long as possible, because you don’t want to get out in the cold. When you finally manage to get out of bed, you’re too busy preparing yourself to get ready for work. When you don’t have to work, you tend to sleep in until the day has almost passed halfway. The sunrise at Tajpur became even more as the sun peaked over the horizon.The sky had now became pink like a sea of cotton candy .By the time I reached our resort ,pink became a pale yellow mixed with blue. I am singing alone
Chhoto ekta bhor, tar aalo.. onek
Se thik ghum vangabe
Sokaler abir, dhorechi muthoy
Se kon ronge rangabe.
It’s means –
Little dawn, its light, many
He’ll just wake up
Abir ( coloring powder ), got caught in the morning
He will paint in a color.
We finished our breakfast with puri, sabjee, rasgulla along with tea around 9 am. After clearing all dues we started back to Kolkata around 10.30 a.m. We reached our residence around 3.30 p.m.We carry back home memories of the sea, the vast beach, the red crabs, the sound of the waves lapping on the beach, the breeze, the clouds, the vast horizon, the sunrise, the sunset and the simple lives of the locals.
