People throng Sural or Surla during the monsoons to get a glimpse of falls snuggled amongst the beautiful Western Ghats.

There were diverse reactions from netizens on this –

Anvith K.S. Asked- “There aren’t any facilities there to charge for. Also being a citizen of India I should have free access to any place. I do understand that anti social elements need to be kept in check. I have a feeling this is done due to the enormous number of drunk idiots going there and spoiling it for everyone.”

Dhanvarsha said- “ We also must charge the Goans and stop sending Vegetables to Goa”.
