These are the specimens of contemporary water crafts from the East and the West, built in traditional outlooks. The houseboats from the backwaters of Kerala in India, used mainly for the tourist purposes, mechanized fishing boats from the coastal belts of the Arabian Sea are the currently available models of the boat designing in the East. Simultaneously we can see the Western counterparts of the sailing crafts and other varieties of boats in the ports of the Arabian Sea in the Western Coasts of India.

Coastal Scenes with the Kite and the Sign of the Moon …!

The coastal scenes in South India (Kerala) during the summer season are painted with the coconut palms bordering the lakes in confluence with the Arabian Sea;the evening lights make blushes on the frills of palm-leaves and the plants laid out wild in the untouchable corners of the shore,away from the catch of human beings. The sky which is about to fade by the setting sun was to welcome the new moon as the sign of the night and there was a colorful kite  flying in the sky as if to kiss the moon reminding a summer night’s dream…!
