91% solar eclipse viewed

It was
4:30 in the morning. I left my bed. Prepared a cup of tea and stared at the sky for the rare celestial happenings
- the solar eclips
; though partial. At
5:30 a.m. The eclipse started. The surroundings became unnatural gradually. At the time of total eclipse, I went to the roof and experienced the
91% eclipse, though the eastern sky was almost covered with floating monsoon clouds. I watched the surroundings. It was completely changed,
- just like dusk before dawn. The morning light dimmed, birds flying to their nest bewildering. It was only for a few minutes. But marked it as an event for a lifetime.

Clouds covered eclipse

Fishermen, at leisure

A hectic day is over. Office goers returning back home sweet home. I am now on the jetti waiting for my vessel to come. The fishermen also anchored their boats for the night, after the day's collection. Some of them are busy with his fishing net, and some laying after a hard work. I captured their activities with my camera.
