While I was at Little Andaman, I got the lovely opportunity to visit the Nicobarese village and its people. These guys look half Thai and half Indian. Since they lost their original tribal homes to the 2004 Tsunami, the Indian government has built them a fully functional secluded settlement about 10 kilometres from Hut Bay.
After spending close to an hour exploring the village and talking to the locals (the locals speak Hindi too), I followed some of the locals to the beach nearby as they were preparing for the evening fishing trip.
Every evening just before sunset, 3 boats with 3 fishermen each, go into the deep seas and drop anchor. When they come back to their village by sunset, their boats are full of fishes. Most of their catch is consumed within the village itself. The surplus is either stored or sold in the Hut Bay market. The most interesting aspect about their fishing trip is their amazing boat which has an extra attached floatation device. Upon asking the tribals, they let me know that this was to allow them to catch some sleep while keeping the boat steady.
