Devbhag Fishermen

This is my second post on Devbagh. For the first post visit – Devbagh As I walked around the sleepy village (sleepy because it isn’t frantic like Mumbai or for that matter not even close to the subdued Pune) of Devbagh I found myself passing by the fishermen folk. They were either busy mending their fishing nets or preparing for the next catch. Their attire seemed different in comparison to the Harnai fishermen who were more traditional in their Koli attire.

Devbagh is a sleepy town at the farthest end of the Konkan belt in Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. It took us a good ten hours drive from Pune via Kolhapur to reach this town which also included breaks in between for lunch and breakfast. As like all villages in Konkan it is abundant in cashew and coconut trees, mangroves and the ubiquitous fish. En route to Devbagh the air was filled with the aroma of the mango blooms that were in abundance. It was the flowering season of the mangoes.
