  • Not so โ€˜Picture Perfectโ€™, after all...
    Along the shores of the old spice trading town of Fort Kochi are the the centuries-old โ€˜Cheenavalaโ€™ or Chinese fishing nets, the iconic signature of Fort Kochiโ€™s fishing heritage. They are among the most photographed sights of Kerala, greeting curious holidaymakers from within glossy travel magazines and tourism brochures. The nets are believed to have been introduced to Kochi more than 500 years ago by the Chinese explorer Zhang He. But with climate change, high maintenance costs, shrinking catches and industrial pollution wreaking havoc on the livelihood of the fisherfolk, these celebrated symbols of cultural exchanges that existed centuries ago in the Indian subcontinent are headed down the road to perdition.
