Photographer's Note

The fishing nets of Cochin near the St.Francis church where Vasco-da-gama was initially buried. This was my second or third time there..I would still love to go there again. That's where Cochin, the historical town is at her best.

The Jews, the Dutch, the Portuguese have all left their mark on this port-town and you really get a feel of history.

I don't know why these are called the Chinese nets, but they make an interesting spectacle when the fishermen ryhthmically pull these giant nets up from water. The crows and some other birds quickly alight into these nets to eat the small fish.

The sunset view at the place is quite lovely too.
