Devbagh Beach Resort - Karwar

Devbagh Beach Resort - Karwar Outer ViewIt was somewhere between 1882 and 1883, when India’s first Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore stayed at Karwar. His brother Satyendranath Tagore, I.C.S., was the district judge of North Kanara, and Rabindranath was only 22 years old then.

Fascinated by the beach and the abounding sea, Rabindranath, with his party on one moonlit night, set out on a rowing boat from one end of the beach. Crossing the point of confluence of the Kali River with the sea, they sailed on along the meandering river, upstream. On their way back, they glided down with the current until they reached the mouth of the river. The party got off the boat there, and walked back home on the milky white sands of the beach. It was now far into the night. The sea was calm and so were the casuarinas. That night, even when everything around him slept, something kept Tagore awake. He wrote “Prakritir Pratishoota” or 'Nature’s Revenge', a dramatic poem, and his very first play.

As Tagore reflected later, this poem was the genesis of his w
hole literary career, and the inspiration of Karwar remained in all his later literary works.

This is also an excellent spot for bird watching.
