Keralan sea based tug of war


Last week I was at a family wedding in Kochi in Kerala and I’ve used the opportunity of being away in India to get a few days at the beach in Kovalam.

The picture above is not a tug of war against some unseen sea based opponents; it is  actually local Keralan fishing folk dragging in the massive fishing nets that were put out to sea very early this morning. If you look carefully at the middle left of the picture you can see the other end of the net that another group of people are pulling on.

Later on today this catch will undoubtedly end up being served up at one of the many beach front restaurants in Kovalam.
