Dear Friends, this incident took place on the 19th of May 2003 when me and my friend ((name deleted)) had gone to one of our regular late evening visits to one of the most beautiful Chennai beaches (South India), Valmiki Nagar Beach in
Thiruvanmyur [sic Tiruvānmiyūr]. To begin with I would like to throw some light on myself and my friend. I am Anish Naidu here. I am 27 years young [sic old] and a management graduate (MBA) and my frined [sic friend] ((deleted)) is 30 years young [sic old] and also a management graduate (MBA) & a networking engineer, and we both have a great deal of interest in Science, Religions, Philosophy, World Affairs, etc. and it was during one such evening discussion on the 19th of May, the time was 9:45 PM, the beach was almost empty and pitch dark. We were lying flat on the beach sand with our face facing the beautiful and partially cloudy night sky did we notice [sic when we noticed] this strange object, the exact shape of a 'Boomerang' just fly its way into the land (west) from the Bay of Bengal side (east). It was flying at a great height. Even in [sic at] that height it was huge, really huge and all we could see was the exact cloud coloured frame of the huge Boomerang like object. It had no lights in them [sic it] but was flying smoothly, fast, agile and with ease in between the clouds. We saw it take two rounds, each after a gap of 4 to 5 minutes and then disappear. We have never seen anything like it ever in our lives: it was too high-tech, not least bit like the modern day spy aircrafts used by the US and other developed countries, next it made no sound, it had no lights, it seem [sic- seemed] to follow a pattern, flew with ease, it was very huge and least bit like the latest aircrafts shown in the Discovery and National Geographic channels. Me and my friend are damn sure of one thing, what we saw was a UFO or something really supernatural, but one thing is sure after seeing it, we surely believe that we aren't alone in this astronomically huge infinite universe; we have company. If interested to contact me for further details, contact me at ((e-address deleted)).
