TRAVELS 2023 Annoucing Winners and Merit Award

Traditional offshore fishing in Tra Vinh-Vietnam
This kind of fishing existed more than a hundred years ago only in two provinces in Mekong Delta, Vietnam. Nowadays there are few families that keep following that method in Dong Hai - Tra Vinh.
Far away from the mainland, about 15 nautical miles, there was a line of dozen wooden stilts installed into the deep sea, a huge net hung between every two stilts. At night, a fisherman dropped the net and let it spread at the bottom. The next morning, when the tide receded, the other fishermen would pull the net up to collect the fish inside. Depending on the season, the best time for fishing was from March–May and September–November.
The fisherman in the picture had to stay alone in a shelter for two weeks to take care of the net at night.

When the tattoo defeated casteism

In the late nineteenth century, low-caste Hindus in the eastern state of Chhattisgarh first began tattooing their bodies and faces as an act of devotion and defiance after being forbidden to enter the temples and forced to use separate wells. The Ramnamis, as followers of the Ramnami Samaj religious movement are called, tattooed the Hindu god Ram's name on their bodies as a message to higher-caste Indians that god is everywhere and already embedded in them, regardless of social status.
