Fisher men of a village called Mandarmani in India are busy at dawn preparing their fishing net before going out to the sea for their catch. Though I had no live LCD, I tried my best to take a low angle shot as I wanted to show them - standing above the land and touching the sky - in order to show the significance of their job and tradition. By making each of them a silhouttee I have protected their identity and tired to capture the magnificient sky that the Lord shows them before they leave for the sea. It seemed that the beauty was a blessing from the Divine to them. The sky seemed to be protecing them by keeping away bad weather. For me, these humble workers are the fuel of the human civilisation.
