Pho­tographed “Blue­print for Par­adise,” “With their clear blue wa­ters, pris­tine white sand, and some of the best sun­sets you’ll ever see, the An­daman Is­lands are a per­fect can­vas for any artist,” says Mum­baibased pho­tog­ra­pher Anand of his third trip to the ar­chi­pel­ago, which lies in the Bay of Ben­gal closer to Myan­mar than to the In­dian main­land. “Get­ting to the new Taj re­sort on Have­lock Is­land in­volves mul­ti­ple flights and boat rides, but it’s well worth it. The sight of tow­er­ing, cen­turiesold trees made me feel like I was trans­ported back in time, while the sooth­ing mu­sic of the waves was as ther­a­peu­tic as a spa treat­ment. I sin­cerely hope that any fu­ture de­vel­op­ment of the An­damans is done re­spon­si­bly and eth­i­cally, so that fu­ture gen­er­a­tions can en­joy the is­lands’ pris­tine beauty.”
