The photo is shot at an indigenous boat making factory of Southern Bengal, in the Sunderban area, not far from the City of Kolkata, India. Boat making is a thriving business in the area due to presence of large number of rivers and streams in the delta of the Ganga river, where Sunderban is located. Due to high salinity in the river, wooden boats are the preferred alternatives than the metaled ones which easily get corroded by the brackish sea water. The wooden boats are used for communication as well as fishing, which is the main profession of the people living there. The wood mainly comes from the forests of Sunderban. Thus the whole economy of the area is dependent upon the woods of the forests.
