Photographer's Note

The man and the bird they appear to us as different entities, but they had one goal in their mind. To catch a fish or shell and survive on that. The man here carries a very old traditional fishing net along with a stick. With these he manages to catch fish and arranges living hood for the family.

About Chandipur
Chandipur also known as Chandipur-on-sea is a small sea resort in Balasore District, Orissa, India. The resort is on the Bay of Bengal and is approximately 16 kilometers from the Balasore Railway Station. The beach is unique in that the water recedes anywhere from 1 kilometer to 4 kilometers during the ebb and returns at the time of high-tide. The beach, due to this uniqueness, supports a lot of bio-diversity. Horseshoe crab is also found here on the beach towards Mirzapur, the nearby fishing market and community at the confluence of the river Budhabalanga.

Chandipur-on-sea is also the location of the Indian Army's Integrated Test Range (ITR). A number of missiles have been launched from the ITR including the nuclear capable Akash, Agni, and Prithvi ballistic missiles.

Chandipur can be reached from Kolkata by travelling up to Balasore by the Jan Shatabdi Express and thereafter catching a bus.
