Aparajith…. means undefeated in Hindi, but that’s the irony of it all, for the ship seen here named Aparajith was defeated by the sea and ended up as a wreck. Information is sketchy on this vessel and how it came to be beached up here. Upon inquiry with a few locals, all I could glean was that this was a bulk carrier loaded with cement and got wrecked on to this beach on Kavaratti island in Lakshwadeep, India. The incident happened during a tropical storm around 10 years back. Attempts to salvage the ship failed and one can see many parts from this vessel still strewn around the beach.
