For all the fish lovers!
I've recently been introduced to the art of buying fish. A noob like me would've thought it's about picking the right fish, the one that's most fresh. But turns out it's a lot to do with PR!
One of the biggest fishing communities in Bombay, the Koli community (seen in the picture) are some of the toughest-to-please women I've seen. They set up shop in the fish market everyday, but Sundays have the most traffic. That day you'll find people from all classes come down to buy the fish of their liking. And that's what I got to see, the changing temperament of the Koli women depending on how much they thought their customer could afford.
I had romanticised the idea of buying fish when in fact it was a fight to get what you want in front of a higher paying customer.
Not to mention that humans were not the only competition, as the birds roaming around would pounce on the purchase the minute you looked away!
