Rameswaram located on an island, stretches into the sea as if reaching towards its twin over the Palk Straight. I’m guessing sixty thousand years ago when sea levels were lower, Sri Lanka was joined to South India. That’s when Tamils might have crossed on Adam’s Bridge to settle on the island nation although it was probably further back in time.
I took a ferry from Rameswaram across to Mannar Island, the night before trouble exploded.
