Nurturing

This pic was taken in the month of January 2017. There is an old saying 'Surat Nu Jaman Ane Kashi Nu Maran' which means Eat in Surat and Die in Kashi for the ultimate experience of the soul. And this is what seagulls, which travel thousands of kilometres to come to the city, seem to believe in. Every year during winter these international guests visit our city. For, these birds partially give up their natural sea food and relish local delicacies like ganthia, bhusu and khandvi. And food-crazy Surtis love to oblige the hungry seagulls by laying out the delicacies on the bridges over the Tapi. Obsessed with the taste of this popular Gujarati snack, these winged migrants fight off crows who also want to feed on it. I have captured a candid moment where a Surati was feeding these guests
