Post the cyclone, Dhanushkodi was decalared unfit for human habitation surviroes were rehabilitated in a small town nearby. A motley group of fisherfolk, came back to Dhanushkodi and have been living there. There is no electricity, nor there is piped water or any other ameneties. There is the sea and sand. The sea is so rich, it home to many exotic fish, crabs and lobsters. Indian and Lankan fishermen are constantly fighting over this bounty.
I stayed in Rameswaram for nearly a month and tried to document the lives of five poor fisherfolk.
