Moyna boat race near Diamond harbour, West Bengal

The moyna boat race is a seasonal race that takes place according to the directions of the wind and sailing conditions. The boat race that has been photographed here is from the Diamond Harbour in the delta region of West Bengal in the moyna boat.

Dr. Varadrajan followed a trail of boat types along the sunderban. This series doesnt emphasize on the boat type, as much as it tries to document the boat race culture.
