Market stall selling freshwater prawns at street market in Gairkata (India)

I believe those are freshwater prawns (i.­e.­ river shrimps).­ You can view a close-up here.

I just took a break from my long motorcycle journey and strolled around this lively and colorful street market in a small town called Gairkata, in West Bengal.­
