Customarily, we examine the Indian rupee note from the front side only where series numbers are printed. We usually overlook its other side. The mesmerizing picture, representing natural beauty, printed on the opposite side of the Indian rupee (INR) 20/-, is taken from a point located on Mount Harriet - Port Blair, Andaman Island, the Indian island situated in the middle of Bay of Bengal.

It depicts a breathtaking view of a light house on North Bay Island with palm trees in the forefront. The name 'Andaman' is derived from the Malay word 'Handuman' or 'Hanuman,' the monkey God. 'Andaman - The Emerald Island' has everything one dreams of experiencing in India – finest sea beaches with adventurous water sports, coral reefs, exotic ornamental fishes, rain forests with lush green mangroves, tribal communities, active mud volcanos, lime stone caves, undulating hills, and several other natural attractions. The lineage of inhabitants can often be traced to prisoners of war and refugees, who are extremely disciplined, honest, and steeped in a strong desire and commitment to maintain the environment pollution-free and the roads, neat and clean, devoid of stray animals. Even bringing a single sea-shell as a souvenir from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands without prior permission is a punishable offence. The dreaded 'Kaala Pani' [Black waters; the colonial prison in the Andaman and Nicobar islands] of the yester years during the British raj has been replaced in the present times by a paradise in the true sense, consisting of 'emerald green' waters and a very welcoming atmosphere.

Therefore, please do not overlook 'the reverse side,' it is indeed fascinating!
