Alibag Fort / Kulaba Fort – Alibag, Maharashtra.

Alibag Fort / Kulaba Fort – Alibag, Maharashtra.Alibag Fort / Kulaba Fort – Alibag, Maharashtra.The Alibag Fort , locally referred as Kulaba Fort is built on a rocky island located 2 kilometers from Alibag Beach, Raigad District – 112 Kms south from Mumbai, Coordinates: 18°38'7"N 72°51'51"E. Before the construction of this Sea-Fort, the island use to be an army check-post in the sea of Mauje Navghar.

Best way to reach Alibag is by a Launch/ Ferry/ Catamaran from Gateway of India (Mumbai) to Mandwa (Alibag) Or by Road which is around 2 hrs journey. Alibag fort is also blessed with the nature’s cycles of high & low tide. Watching this play of nature from the beach is simply an awesome experience, I will suggest Sunglow Resorts (Phone: +91-2141-221072/73 Email: sunglow@nivalink.co.in). During low tides the two modes of transport are either by walking or a Horse Tanga. In earlier days the Fort was inaccessible during high tide but now a new speed boat service has started. Reaching the Fort in this speed boat is real fun.

Kulaba/ Alibag Fort was the result of Shivaji Maharaja’s Vision for a Main Naval Base for the Maratha Navy and to monitor activities of the foreign naval powers of English, Portuguese and the Siddhi of Janjira. This Fort was also his last construction as it almost was completed on the eve of his death in April 1680.

There’s a dome shape memorial of the legendary Naval Commander Kanhoji Angre who was in charge of this Sea-Fort in 1698, as this Fort was where this Maritime Hero took his last breath on 4th July 1729. The ruins of Kanhoji Angre’s family Palace are still visible.

Height of the fort walls is around 32 feet with a wide parapet and 17 bastions. Main gate of the fort is called Maha Darwaja. There are carvings of elephants, peacocks and tigers on the entrance arch of Maha Darwaja. There are also two other small gates, the second small gate is the smallest and the third one is medium which faces south.

Near the main entry of the fort are two temples of Goddesses Padmavati and Goolavati. There is a Siddhivinayak/ Ganpati temple still in good condition near the sweet water reservoir. Also there is a Hajrat Haji Kamal Udinshah Darbar – Dargah. The Hanuman Temple, Ship Dock and Firing Range are located at the southern tip of the fort, the area here is like an extension of the fort outside the fort walls, and was used as a Ship Dock, the plane ground was used as a Firing Range by the British troops.

Guarding the Fort and facing the sea are the two British Cannons manufactured by LOW MOOR IRONWORKS - Yorkshire, London. Also two Maratha Cannons can be seen on the top of Maha Darwaja guarding the main entry.

Although located 2 km from the Alibag beach and surrounded by sea most of the times, there are surprisingly many sweet water reservoirs inside the Fort. There is a big Pohkran/ Large Well with steps adjacent to the Siddhivinayak temple. Near the main entry is the Triangular Well with Round Mouth. Two Underground Wells are located at the center.

There are around 6 to 8 Historic Toilets in the fort. The First Toilet is sort of premium toilet with larger windows and space, must have been used by high ranking officials. Second Toilet is little bit less premium with smaller windows and less space. The others were meant for infantry I guess, most of them are located at the southernmost part of the fort and are cramped, and some of them even don’t have roofs.

Sarjekot Fort is located to the North of Alibag Fort and both share the same Rock-Island. It’s also referred as the 18th bastion of the Alibag Fort and was constructed as an answer to the artillery of Hirakot Fort situated on the shore of Alibag. One can see the ruins of a Stone road connecting both the Forts, now in the absence of which the two are isolated during high tide.

View of the Beautiful Foamy Arabian Sea from Alibag Fort is magnificent.

Satellite View of Alibag Fort.

CAUTION: Many people have lost their lives while trying to walk either towards the fort or the beach during the start of high tide. Due to the Fort as an obstruction in between, the high tide waves come in from the right and left sides and tend to sweep away anything back in the ocean. Nowadays these incidents have been decreased drastically due to governments’ attempts. A timetable and a Warning Siren have been implemented on the beach with the presence of local police for help. In case of any drowning accidents the Costal Guards are informed by the local beach police, so it’s much safer now. A simple thing to follow is simply ASK!

Crab Festival at Mahesh Lunch Home, Juhu – 10th to 19th Oct 03. Njoy!

Crab Festival at Mahesh Lunch Home, Juhu – 10th to 19th Oct 03. Njoy!Crabs were simply delicioussss……….

There were only two of us to eat whatever we ordered, which was garlic prawns in butter and two crab dishes. That person brought two live crabs and asked us to choose the size, this keeps happening in Mahesh Lunch Home. They bring live things and you need to choose.

The image above is only 1/4th of one crab dish which was cooked in Singaporean style. The moment I looked towards my right! There was a question mark in front of me. We doubted whether we could finish everything. But when it comes to Prawns and Crabs, nothing is impossible.

I love Crabs and with a special companion it tasted heavenly.

When Sea Food is in your mind, Mahesh Lunch Home is where you should dine.

“A WEDNESDAY” - real eye opener - thought provoking – adrenalin packed movie. Just Watch It!!!

A Wednesday - Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher, Jimmy Shergill, Aamir BashirA Wednesday - Naseeruddin ShahA Wednesday - Naseeruddin ShahA Wednesday - Anupam KherA Wednesday - Jimmy Shergill and Aamir BashirA Wednesday

Director/ Writer: Neeraj Pandey
Cast: Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher, Jimmy Shergill, Aamir Bashir …………

Finally! an awesome movie after a long time.

Naseeruddin Shah’s acting was superb! Nothing can beat it.

Getting a good concept to make a movie is not a big deal. We have seen many examples were the concept was good but was not implemented properly. That’s what makes this movie different; it occupies the viewers mind from start to end and makes them guess what’s next?

And this is not just a concept, but a practical social message. If you are a normal person then you will feel little bit guilty after watching this movie, but again like a normal person when you wake up next morning , you will forget it and continue you normal city life. Sounds familiar isn’t it?
Just watch this movie…………..

While returning from Juhu PVR, we passed by “Juhu Aviation Base” where the climax of this movie takes place.

Sikhs Riot in Thane and Mumbai. A real bad Experience……..

The killing of a community member by bodyguards of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh on Friday was the Reason…….

We tried desperately to reach Mumbai, but were blocked at the Eastern Express Highway (Mulund).

Situation was worst, as we were not just stranded for hours but hundreds of Sikhs were roaming around with swords and lathis in their hands commanding each and every vehicle to turn off their engines.

Finally we decided to walk. We walked till Bhandup then somehow got a rick to the station. Finally I reached Mumbai and dropped the Precious Cargo that I was carrying to its destination which was a sigh of relief. Later I returned to Thane.

That was a real Bad Experience……………….

Tagline: How do you wake up from a nightmare, when you're not asleep?

While watching this movie, whenever there was a close-up shot of the actor, there was only one question in my mind.
Where have I seen this guy? He was in some movie, which one?

This story revolves around a lathe-operator - Trevor Reznik, suffering from insomnia resulting

into sleepless nights for years. And there’s one shot at the end when the reason for the same is reveled, and that was when I found out the actor is “Christian Bale” from Equilibrium, Batman Begins, The Prestige etc.

The reason why I couldn’t recognize him was - Instead of six pack abs, there were 28 ribs visible on his body. It was only in that last shot when he is shown in his normal form.

Good Movie!

What you see in reel life, never works in the real life!

What you see in reel life, never works in the real life!A friend went for a movie yesterday. Movie was – “Turistas”. Movie was not great, but also not bad.

There’s a scene where one of the actor gets along with this Brazilian lady. So during the introduction, she says her name is “Aralayoo” And when that actor repeats her name, she kisses him, then again he repeats the name, she kisses him, and again and again.

He was sitting between two of his female friends. Next day all three of them were in a Rickshaw and he started repeating the same thing. The result was instead of kisses He got tight slaps, he repeated they repeated, he repeated they repeated.
