Nariyal Purnima: The festival of fishermen
On 7 August, the Koli (fishing) community of Mumbai will celebrate Nariyal Purnima, the Coconut Festival. The festival marks the end of the monsoon season. It falls on the full moon day in the month of Shravan and marks the auspicious beginning of the fishing season for the fisherfolk. The period before Nariyal Purnima is regarded as mating season for aquatic creatures and hence fishermen avoid venturing into the seas during that time. Instead, they occupy themselves repairing old fishing nets and painting and repairing their boats and plugging any leaks. The Afternoon D&C ace lensman AZAD SHRIVASTAV visited different coastal regions of Mumbai and captured fishermen working preparing to head out to sea again!
