fisherman's boat at umiam during sunrise

We spent a night at a Boat House in Umiam lake which is a large reservoir just outside Shillong. It was a unique experience to have an island to ourselves. Apart from a few fishermen who were going about their daily job, we did not see too many other people. This particular boat was by the shore near our boat house all evening. The boatman or fisherman who owned it had probably taken the day off. Reminded me a song by David Gilmour…..”A Boat Lies Waiting.” The first few lines go like this:

Something I never knew
In silence I’d hear you
And a boat lies waiting
Still your clouds all flaming
That old time easy feeling

You can listen to it here.
