Fresh off the Boat

Early in the mornings, fishermen push their catamarans (made from logs of wood tied together) and set sail into the sea or river singing, in search of fresh catch… Elsewhere, in backwaters, boatmen come plying their fresh wares, bananas, fish, tender coconut and more… On houseboats tourists try their hands, gently, on the wheel… No matter which part of the country you are in, boats are integral to India. Take a ride in one, the next time you get a chance.
