Photographer's Note

Shot taken from Shikara on Dal Lake in Srinagar, the capital of Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.

For us Bengalis, fish and rice is the staple food. The woman who was catching fish from the lake, could make out perhaps that I am a Bengali and wanted to sell her catch to us. She was zealously displaying various types of fish and wanted us to buy some. Me and my wife tired of having meat and eggs for days really wanted some fresh fish for lunch and almost took the plunge. But thinking about the hassles of cooking without any arrangements of our own we decided not to give in to the temptation :-).
