‘The Musafir Stories is an audio podcast that documents Indian travel tales.’ The site is owned and managed by the lovely, talented couple Saif Omar and Faiza Khan. When they approached me for a podcast interview to share my travel stories I was overly glad to do so. I chose Ratnagiri in Maharashtra, as my destination to talk about.
Must be wondering what so fishy about Harnai? Harnai is the beach famous for its fish market. Every afternoon after 4 starts the auction. The fresh catches are laid by the muddy beach. Thousands of customers some for wholesale while other for personal consumption, gather here to grab the best deal. Situated in a scenic location Harnai is a natural harbour with a number of forts and a lighthouse. My fishy tale is not just about the fish market. It’s a lot more than that.
