I have covered these location during my phd work which also include my home town and previous university. Look at the map, I have also covered the Bay of Bengal (open ocean). I was the part of scientic expedition during July-August 2018 on Sagar Nidhi vessel. I must say it was one of the best experiences of my life. It was never easy to stand on cruise and work. The weather and ocean was so rough and always making us ill (sea sickness). We used to take tablet to stand for work. Regarding the sea sickness, very first day when we met with the cruise captain he said “Dekhte hai kitna experiment karte ho ek bat cruise chala to sab vertical jo hai horizonatl ho jaoge (english: I will see how you work when cruise will start to move in the open ocean. Every body who stand here vertically will be horizontal)”.
We were in the open ocean at least for 32 days, ,yeah one month. Everytime we came outside from our room, only find a great blue color with white fan which were going up and down with scary sound. In the last week of our journey, one morning, we saw a whale heading towards the SOUTHERN OCEAN.
I want to continue to write my experiences but it will be good to write with pics that I have clicked on the cruise. To explain everything in single blog will not justify that great experience of my life.
