Indian Boatman

Indian boat captain

The heat was stifling as we crossed over to the Sunderban Islands. The only escape from the sun was under the low canopy of the small boat that jugged it’s way to our destination. The captain had been stoically piloting our boat out in the sun most of the morning. The rest of us had retreated to the shade under the canopy that provided shelter from the sun but at the same time provided a constant stream of fumes from the engine. Just as I was about to go back out into the sun our captain came over and sat in front of me. I’d been taking his photograph all morning but I wasn’t happy with what I’d gotten until he sat down and simply looked out at the water flowing by.
