    Guys if u jave come across any such thing in past one year of ur current preparation do let us know. This thread is not made so that we dig and find out such things- just if u have come across do let us know :)
    @pizzaa GC Leong mentions one place - Bay of Fundi in Canada with same features - so automatically question shd come in mind - do we have such a place in India? Yes - Chandipur. This thread is looking for such types of topics/things.
