It’s no secret that I love water-themed regions, so when I was nudged about Imagination, it immediately went on my list of places to see. As it happened, I delayed my original plans to blog about it as I saw Ziki had done so; truth be told, I had intended to leave it a little while longer before spending time there, but temptation got the better of me.
The region has been designed by ARNICAR India, and it is a perfect haven for those wanting to escape the trials of the world or who are looking for a place to soothe their tired minds. Predominantly water, the region has a number of small islands scattered across it and, in one case, floating over it.
Each presents its own vignette or tableau; a story begun, but awaiting the presence of others to continue it. Wandering between them, you’re invited to participate, whether be sitting down in one of the many chairs scattered across the islands, or by creating your own story for the scenes you pass through.
That you are welcome to imagine and create is clear from the description of the region, which comes in the form of a quote by George Bernard Shaw:
Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.
This is a truly lovely place, one that wraps itself around you, comforting you, offering you warmth and peace; a place to rest and to listen to the sounds of the sea breaking against distant rocks, and soft chirping of crickets, the gentle croaking of frogs and the splash and murmur of water under wooden piers and against stone causeways.
There are some lovely touches that further enhance the region’s look and allure, and as such, it is worthwhile taking your time while exploring, as some will doubtless raise a smile once discovered.
For those who tire of walking there is a rowing boat which can be used to navigate between the islands or, for the really adventurous, a pair of flying, pedal-powered chairs. And when you’re done exploring, there are plenty of places to relax and let the rest of the world hurry on with its business without you, and simply let the peaceful waters flow.
