A Visit to the Prawn Farm


...In Markannam en route Pondicherry
Three farms- with a tiny cottage for the farm people where we halted for a cold drink and biscuits
Tejas wanted to at that point, give some contribution to the salinity and water levels of the prawn next to the cottage for some strange reason.
The tiger prawns were not full grown as yet but would be harvested in December- until then the farms have to be protected day and night for fear of pilfers- a dip of the net can secure them a few thousands worth of zero investment income.
Ojas & Tejas were loathe to touch the prawns - obviously- even I wouldn't touch them
The rickety looking bridge is surprisingly strong enough for 2 men to stand on.
What I just want to do is take the pictures that I clicked of the landscape to a painter and commission a series out of them. Ah- these are the times I wish I could paint!
And on that note- a very happy Diwali!
