Flowing melodrama

Sebastian Rodrigues

Mobile rang, left pocket vibrating. Heart raced into river zuari and strife come alive. Zuari witnessed tensions and clashes of fishing technology and sustainability. Sanjay speaks. Body veins, Fish, Shell dredged. River bed screams. Depth in cry and crisis. 

Sanjay goes in fishing every morning for decade and a half. As a child and father cultivated vegetable in shrubs where today stands Goa University. For the sake of education Sanjay sacrificed living and livelihood. Now dives into Zuari to catch fish that eludes him for too many trawlers, mini-per seiners, casinos, marinas, coal, mining barges and water sports intruders.
