The little boy seems to be left out the game of cricket being played by his friends in the fishing village of Uroor Olcott kuppam near Besant Nagar. Note the concrete cricket pitch not far from the tourist-friendly Elliott’s Beach.

The fishing net on which the boy is lying down costs about Rs 300,000 according to a senior villager. It is a drag net designed to catch different types of fishes, unlike other nets which are optimized for a  particular type of fish.
