Maasli Dhar.....Naakhwa

You must be surprised with the title of this post. "Maasli" means fish and "Naakhwa" means a fisherman. For the very first time Maharashtra State Govt. has organised a three day Matsya Mahotsay (Fish Festival) at Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai from 26th Dec. to 28th Dec. 2010 and the timings are from 10AM to 10PM. The main reason to organise this festival is to bring all marine related organisations under one roof. You will find stalls of various organisations like Central Institute of Fisheries Education, Central Institute of Fisheries and Rural Development, Maharashtra Maritime Board, Maharashtra Fisheries Development Corp. etc. You will also find a stall of Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC). You will also enjoy watching small home aquariums here with variety of fish. 
I know you must be getting bored reading the stall information but there is also something more mouth watering than this. Kolis from places like Versova, Vasai, Raigad etc. with smiling faces in their traditional dresses and ornaments have participated in this festival which comprises more than 50 stalls. These stalls have variety of fresh fish like Pomfret, Bombay Duck, Crab, Prawns, Lobster, Surmai and many many more. One can enjoy the fresh sea food with the live Koli songs. This festival is similar to the Versova Koli Sea Food Festival which I had visited in January 2010.

Nearest Landmark:- Diamond Market (BKC), ICICI Bank (BKC)
