Photographer's Note

Delhi.....the heat is unbearable now...mercury has touched 44.2 degrees Centigrade for the last few days. How I wish I could stay under water, cool and blue...respite from the sweltering, scorching sun, I wish, I wish :-(

Sentosa, which means tranquillity in Malay, is a popular island resort in Singapore, visited by some two million people a year.

The island has an area of 5 square kilometres. It lies just half a kilometre (a quarter of a mile) away from the southern coast of the main island of Singapore.

Underwater World is an oceanarium located on the western part of Sentosa. Opened in 1991, the living museum has more than 2,500 marine animals of 250 species from different regions of the world. We entered into the world of sharks, stingrays, eels and other sea creaures via a moving travellator that ferried us through a 83 metre long acrylic tunnel right underneath and alongside these sea creatures. Sharks sped past, with their sharp vicious teeth barely a foot away…stingrays swayed by, flapping their fins, gentle giant groupers with their pouted lips looked with interest, crabs crawled on the floors....I was truly impressed.

For this picture, I waited for someone to appear, when this lady, obviously Indian, stopped by. This is best I could do in the ambient light, handheld. Hope you like it.
