Markets/Shop Produce/Goods Contest Entry 
Sea-fish lovers in the city of Madras ( now renamed Chennai) may not have to stand under the sun covering their noses while shopping for their fish, prawns or lobster.

The Chennai Corporation is planning to set up 20 fish markets across the city.The fish markets are expected to be built with all modern facilities, including layered walls and adequate storage space. The mayor insists that the smell of fish and prawns should not permeate the wall disturbing other commercial establishments in the area. A refrigerator room will also be built to store fish and facility to dispose the waste will be set up,? said an civic body official.
A bonanza for fish lovers ( me excluded).

I took this shot at a local fish market in Chennai ( a few miles away from the city) one late afternoon during my visit to South India in April. I used my cell phone 1+3T Android phone to capture the haggling scene.!:) I quickly clicked and beat a hasty retreat to get away from the smell !.

Image very slightly cropped and adjusted for light. I have retained my shadow that is falling across the guy in yellow T-shirt for the sake of authenticity.
