Winding roads fringed by the sea on one side,
tall palms swaying in the salty breeze, small and big houses fronted
with lawns, glimpses of educational institutions, lazy pedallers on
their bicycles riding alone or with a pillion, friendly and curious
children watching you drive by....a quiet sea-side hamlet...that is
The ideal weekend getaway for harried, hassled,
nerves-at-breaking-point executives and the hoi polloi, it's just 140
kms from Mumbai. A haven of unspoilt beach, orchards heavy with chickoo
and miles of winding road waiting expectantly to be explored, Bordi has
hitherto remained untouched by the greedy hands of commerce. You can
soak in its serenity and send a silent prayer that there are still
places like this to retire to on a weekend. Hallelujah
A local bazaar busy with women selling all kinds of wares thrown up
by the sea, a "beach resort" here, a bhel puri house there, colleges for
women, engineering institutions, a railway crossing here and Adivasi
women there, Bordi is a blend of the halcyon days and the modern....but
not too modern that you shun it.
