Photographer's Note

Young boy riding a horse on bakkhali beach.
Though horse is not available at all in this locality,don't know how and from where this boy managed one! His horse is available for a ride on the hard sea beach, which is a very exiting time pass.
There is a story about Bakkhali -
Sir Andrew Fraser, Lieutenant Governor of Bengal in the early twentieth century tried his best to popularise it and in recognition of his efforts a part of the town is named Frasergunj.There is a dilapidated house near the beach, which according to the locals was the one in which Fraser used to stay.Local legend has it that he had landed at the place accidentally because of a shipwreck and was helped to survive by a local woman named Narayani. Fraser fell in love with her and visited her regularly. His detractors sent word about his goings on to his wife staying back in England. She came rushing to India and with the assistance of British troops had Narayani shot down. Frasergunj was earlier known as Narayanitala.
