Excerpt: Early 1980, Adirampattinam, located in Palk Strait, a shallow bay between India and Sri Lanka, ?was selected by the BOBP and the Tamil Nadu fisheries department for a coastal village development project. The project was to focus on fishing communities in four villages situated near the seashore and a little outside Adirampattinam town. The four villages are known as Karaiyur Street, Sunnambukara Street, Taragar Street and Arumuga Kittangi Street. The reasons for locating the project near Adirampattinam were: its easy access to good fishing grounds in Palk Strait; its proximity and access by road and rail to fish markets (Pattukottai - 12 km, Thanjavur - 40 km) ; the fact that in spite of these favourable conditions the bulk of the catch seemed to be dried and sold at a price estimated at 30% of its fresh value; the fact that the communities seemed to constitute a good cross-section of Tamil Nadu fishing villagescomprising a diverse social structure, not totally isolated and backward but showing some signs of modernization without however possessing any motorized boats, or being the venue for a harbour development project; and finally the scope for involving women in the project - there seemed to be many women here keen on earning a little more.
