The culture and lifestyle of the area are unique. Habitation is everywhere and in such harmony with nature. Wooden and slapdash plaster huts are scattered on both sides, with the ever-present pigs, chickens and buffaloes. Rice fields stretch like large lawns amongst thick clusters of coconuts, cashew, guava and mango. A men is often spotted neck-deep in the canal attempting to catch fish with his hands.
