Seashore has always been a fascinating and recreational place for young and old. In every seashore, people of diverse age groups can be seen moving around and picking things. What is that they are looking for and collectingl Yes, it is nothing but the 'SHELLS'. Shells are the hard calcareous part, literally the 'HOUSE' of the soft bodied Jiving animals called molluses.
