Today, we still find the typical traditional fishing boats being used in many parts of the eastern world and specifically in India's Eastern & Western coasts. These boats are mainly used by small time fishermen.

Here is one with a difference. During the winter season from October till March, scores of people visit the picnic town of Taki situated in West Bengal in India. The river Ichhamoti separates the Indian border from Bangladesh. Tourists are very keen to take rides on these boats which takes them deep into the border line of Bangladesh as it passes the picnic spots lined along the shores of the river, venturing into deep forest land approaching the Bangladesh border. Some prefer having a pleasent float on a traditional boat.

When the tourists are gone, these small time fishermen returns to their small time fishing.
