Man and the Ocean (Sagar Manav)

The hardships of the working class are mostly ignored by a society that runs on rich dreams.

Chaman Bhai Charlie is a man full of life, who can be a charmer at a public gathering. He works as a lighthouse attendant in Samiyani a small island spread across a length of 1 km. The island is situated in Gulf of Kutch almost 2 kms away from the Okha port. Every evening for 15 days he sees the lights shimmer at the Okha coast and goes to sleep. After 15 days, he leaves the island and another man replaces him. But his struggle continues in Lighthouse headquarters at Okha and his home in Dwarka.
