To Be Angry Was Beautiful

One of the very popular and cheap hobbies of our childhood days was the rearing of fighting fish. We could not afford any aquarium, so the next best thing was a big jam bottle to keep these fishes – one only in each.

It was a joy to see the very brilliant colors when they got agitated and became aggressive. The Siamese type were especially beautiful. I would not risk letting my fishes be wounded or killed in a fight. So most of the time, my friends and I just placed our bottles next to each other, to get the residents provoked. Sometimes, just placed a mirror next to the bottles.. was great fun.
