Dadra and Nagar Haveli




 My visit to Dadra and Nagar Haveli and adjacent places was rather due to some unexpected circumstance. Dadra and Nagar Haveli is one among the seven Union Territories in India. It is sandwiched between the state of Maharashtra and Gujarat. It is economically and industrially underdeveloped and majority of the population here belong to tribal community.  Although Dadra and Nagar Haveli exist separately it is not far apart unlike Daman and Diu which is about 600 Km away. There is some portion of land which is fully landlocked by this UT under the direct administration of Governmet of Gujrat  Silvassa is the capital of Dadra and Nagar Haveli and this UT has the potential of being a handy tourist destination. It is now a weekend destination for the Gujratis and I think the authorities are not giving that much importance to exploit the available resources. It’s about four hr. drive from Mumbai by road. If you take a taxi cab it would cost you Rs 3000/-.


 Silvassa is almost 20 Km drive from Vapi and is packed with factories and a drive through the UT could give us a feeling that the place is not that developed as that of Daman which is quite clean. Of course there is lot of keralites in Silvassa which is evident from the fact that there is an awesome Ayyappa temple there which has got good reputation among the locals. Although there are some tourist spots highlighted in the tourism website of the UT, most are not functioning properly except that of the water sports complex in Dudhani. Dudhani is around 2 hr drive from Vapi .It is actually a weekend destination for the Gujaratis. There is a water sports complex having speed boat and other boating facilities. One restaurant also functions there and there is no other option for the incoming tourists for any kind of food.
