While Kovalam is a famous beach resort full of tourists, Vizhinjam is a poor muslim fishing village.
I have no idea whether or not eating sea turtles is illegal in Kerala, but what I know is that this poor turtle never make it back to the sea.

Excellent post, great visual impact with the clever juxtaposition of prey and "predators" in the BG and choice of low POV focusing on the perspective of the prey. Would suggest a bit more space at the bottom. In any case well done!

Hi Marcos,

Eating or killing sea turtles is illegal in india. The situation is like this many ppl dont know that there is a law protecting animals. The cops act only when there is a complaint. Kerla being a highly educated state, i think atleast any one among the crowd should have protested if they have not it is a tradegy indeed

Regarding picture,

Superb story telling picture
