If you are backpacking around, you can often find a place to sleep – under a tree, in an abandoned boat on a beach, by the roadside, in a cave, on someone’s verandah, in a rice field (heard of water beds), under the open sky, on a hill, the berth of an overnight train – the options are unlimited (even if some of these sound far-fetched). What do you do for a bath though? There are only so many days (for some, weeks or months) that you can keep water and soap away from you before you start smelling like a walking, rotten corpse. Don’t know about other place, but Murudeshwar sure is kind to such people – with entrepreneurs having et up baths on a pay-as-you-use basis. So the next time you have water shortage in your city, you know where to go.
