stink and soul free fish

When was the last time I went out to buy fish? Mumbai has a long and pretty much attractive coastline (if you ignore the plastic and filth). Some citizens have forced the government to kick the vandals on the beaches out and have claimed the beach for themselves. Juhu for example. But then where are the Koli Fishermen and Women? Some of them are seen around Mahim and Bandra and sometimes selling fish in versova. But largely the fish buying community seems to have been seduced by the stink free plastic environment of the super shops. Fishes here are all dressed up and ready to go. Pretty pinks and lady fishes and pomfrets and surmai, with some handsome lobsters and prawns thrown in.

Stink and soul free!
