Every time I click my camera shutter to capture these renowned, enormous spider web like Chinese fish nets and the setting sun at Kochi harbor, I get distinctive tint of orange and yellow each time. Also seen in the photographs is the dredging ship entangled with the work for deepening the outer and inner channels leading to the Rajiv Gandhi Container Terminal of Cochin Port Trust. Jaisu Shipping has won a integrated contract for maintenance dredging and capital dredging at Kochi Port. The huge suspended fishing nets look impressive against the setting sun. These fishing nets introduced by Chinese traders in the 14th Century are one of the captivating attractions of Kerala coast. No visit to Kerala is complete without taking a look at the resolute men manning these enormous structures at Fort Kochi. They are an ineluctable part of this place, imbued in history and inheritance.
