Though the Lakshadweep archipelago may appear as a few insignificant dots on the map of India, it is, in fact, a sparkling diamond- and emerald-studded jewel adorning India's southwestern frontier. It is one of the few marvels left untouched by the encroaching hands of industrialization and progress.
The white beaches, the lagoons that wash its shores with the coral reefs, which enclose it, and finally the deep blue sea-all, these are symbiotically linked with each other. And, when all these are added up, Lakshadweep is no longer the tiniest of India's territories but the largest!
Tourist Attractions in Lakshadweep
Though the islands are lush green like coconut gardens, the calcareous soil of these islets permits only those vegetation species to survive that are able to draw nitrogen from the atmosphere. Moreover, only plants with roots long enough to reach the freshwater film on the saline water just a few meters below have any chance of survival.
Because of these environmental constraints, only a few hundred or so species of flora can survive in Lakshadweep as compared to thousands of species that one can find in volcanic islands like Andaman. Likewise, the fauna too is restricted to a few insects, scorpions, centipedes, and crabs as also a few kinds of skunks and geckos. These are the only species that were able to survive the spray of water during the long journey on rafts or logs.
It is obvious that land animals and plants have not made these islands popular with nature lovers; the real beauty and variety lies in the underwater zone, just as it is to be found in the changing color of the sky above.
