Visualise this. A quiet island filled with lush greenery in the middle of the lake. There is a house there, a garden full of vegetables. You can listen to the chirping of birds in the morning and evenings can be spent by sipping a cup of tea while watching the sailors rowing in the distance and the sky turning deep saffron. How about digging into some red fish curry?
