The sea tribes under siege - Vareethaiah Konstantine :
"The seafarer's life is interwined with the sea - he is unable to remain tied nor is he able to disentangle himself .. like an infant that remains stuck to its mother.. when he opens his heart out, the sea's ebb and flow are reenacted .. Powerful, ironic and satiric, they become, all together, the rising sea's utterance. who or what indeed can hold them back?".
