Guliakhali Seabeach at Chittagong, Bangladesh – Full of Amazing Views of Sea Lake, Deer and Green Water
By Tahsin Taha
Green after green. Somewhere on the horizon, somewhere in the sea. The tree is getting decorated in the middle of the green. In the positive flow of nature, a crooked narrow ditch has been made in the middle of the green.
The water is glistening in the drain. At high tide, the canals are filled with water. Birds, water waves, and wind mingle here—Keora forest visible somewhere. The root of the Keoratree can be seen. The vast grasslands along the beach give a different look.
It is as if the green carpet has taken shelter in the lap of nature on the beach. A beautiful green courtyard has been created. Nature has not been so stingy in decorating the impeccably beautiful Guliakhali beach.
