Nightriders of the sea

Mamallapuram

At 5:30 in the morning just before sunrise these nightriders go out to their hunting grounds of prawns to return
at 9 o'clock avoiding the burning sun and then they go back to sleep as their goods will be sold by their wives.

In the Kingfish season they go for night fishing starting at 17:00 in the evening, putting out a 2km net to pull in the next morning.
I once went with them at night, no problems till they opened their tiffan box ... I had to move out of the wind passing their food :)).

Here you can see how they hold on to a rope to keep their balance going straight in to the rolling wave.

in these images it seems that the life is pure peace, an age of the gold in which all it second slides the rhythms of the nature
