Sunset over Chinese Fishing Nets Cochin

Photographing Sunset in Fort Kochi behind Chinese Fishing Nets Clichéd it may sound, but a visit to Fort Kochi in Cochin, Kerala is incomplete without clicking a picture of Sunset behind the Chinese Fishing nets. For us visitors ( tourists, travelers take your pick), it is a photo opportunity but for the fishermen of Kerala, it is a lot of hard work. I am not sure exactly when the Chinese fishing nets came to India and when they became ubiquitous on the Cochin Skyline. Today they are kind of symbol of your visit to Fort Kochi in Kerala and every [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Sunset in Tadoba

Sunset in Tadoba: Stuck  We have a saying in North India, “Aasmaan Se Tapka, Khajoor main Atka”, losely translated it mean: “Fell from sky, but got stuck in the date palm tree”. The gist is that though you have fallen you are still high enough. This is the exact feeling I had when I clicked this picture in Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve or TATR.
