Chandipur could be more likely considering the sea retreated too much from the shore

Ajai, trying to make amphibious landing by boat, while your wife tries to shoot you into the water!

Ok, I won! What's my prize?

Now I'm starting to doubt if it's in India.

Doesn't look much like Andaman Nicobar or is it?

Did you go to Japan?

Sparsh said...

Col. Shukla,

That is Omaha beach, Normandy.

What do I win?

Yash said...

Ok, somewhere in Europe, the houses look western, as is the tractor ?...or am I just imagining.

That guy who said normandy has got my vote.

Check out the houses, sparsely laid out along the beach and also have that typical european feel. Vehicles on the beach that look like they have a purpose for being there and mostly, NO LITTER[so this cannot be an Indian beach] :).

Virginia beach, and you went with Sonia Gandhi to hide her wealth there.

You were absolutely on the button... no question about that.

The reason you didn't get the prize was... there were at least two correct answers posted a few hours before your post!
