There must be a giant magnet sitting underneath Mumbai’s Juhu Beach because in less than 6 weeks, two huge merchant ships have found themselves firmly planted in its sand.  The latest one, the Panama-flagged MV Pavit actually drifted on its own for 900 miles across the entire Arabian Sea before washing ashore in India.

The ship was reportedly abandoned by it’s crew off Oman on the 29th of June.
