Photographer's Note

I captured this shot at morning
in a village near my home town,
Berhampore. In this frame you
can see a man who is
collecting fibres of jute. (Jute is
the rough fibre of a tropical
plant used for rope ete. Now a
days jute is used for making
dress material also and the
quality of those dresses are not
bad. The dried stick of jute is
also useful. Those are used as
raw material of false ceiling and
ply wood. Those are often used
in rural india as fuel). The people
used to keep the green and
juicy jute stick submerged in a
pond with the intension of
rotten it to loosen its fibres. The
time of this process is generally
rainy season but due to very
low quantity of rain this year
they are doing so just after the
completion of rainy reason.
The backlight condition has offered some problem but I couldn't resist myself to take a snap because of the yellow lines created by the sticks of jute and the presence of this man and the small single ride boat in frame. You can see some bundled fibres of jute in this frame also. Now I am sharing this rural scene of Bengal with you. Hope you'll like the effort tried.
