Fishing all the way!
Summer is here and so is the heat and humidity. Fish, one of the staples in the Mumbai diet is also loved in its dry form. With monsoon soon arriving, when fisher folk avoid venturing into the sea and fish availability is scare, people manage with the dry variety, which is hung out to dry in full swing in the summer. Fishermen after returning to shore with their huge catch, use old tried and tested methods to dry the fish and store it till monsoon ends.
Our ace photographer Trupti Arekar, visited different parts of the city and captured fisherfolks in different moods.
