An enthralling characteristic of Nehru Trophy Boat Race is the presence of 'Thekkanodi' boats with women rowers. In the featured photos, ten international rowers wearing traditional Kerala Sarees or 'Kasavu Settu Mundu'  also known as 'Mundum Neriyathum' along with local women, row their boat in the Punnamada lake, that hosts this annual Boat Race. The boat 'DEVAS' of Vembanad Vanita Boat Club, bagged the first prize in the 'Thekkanodi' women category of 57th Nehru Trophy Boat Race.
