Seeing a fishing in operation, especially in a village pond is a great experience. I had the chance to witness one and just loved it. 60 kilograms of fishes were caught and distributed among 12 joint owner (families) of a huge pond. the family that I was staying with was one of them. So we got 5 Kilograms, but then the family had two separate divisions (two separate families of two brothers, it was basically a joint family). So each brother's family got 2.5 kilogrmas, which too was quite an amount given that they did not have a refrigerator and all fishes were to be eaten up within a day by 3 people. I had a great time. And being a Bengali, they say, fish is in my blood. I can't survive a day without it.
