“Shilabati is a rain fed river in Eastern India. Many fishermen depend on this river for their catch in the rainy season. But in summers, the river dries up. Fishermen are then unable to use their boats in the shallow water. In these dry seasons, they go down to the level of the river bed and use hand nets for fishing the traditional way.” — Partha Pratim Saha.
Congratulations for entering the top 10 shortlist, Partha Pratim!
Watch this space as we announce the other finalists in the coming days.
