Forest of Tides: The Untold Story of The Sunderbans

 
Manisha Sobhrajani (Author)
Synopsis

The Gosaba river stretched towards the horizon... It gave the impression of travelling through darkness to enter a forest of tides.'

Perhaps the most enigmatic of India’s landscapes, the Sunderbans is a land where dense mangrove forests, a sprawling delta and rare wildlife come together to form one of the most biodiverse regions on earth. Till date, it remains amongst the most difficult terrains to live in. The locals lead precarious lives, battling not only nature – in the form of cyclones and animal attacks – but also an indifferent government that provides little infrastructural support.

In Forest of Tides, Manisha Sobhrajani recounts her experience of living and working in the Sunderbans supervising the construction of a charitable hospital – from adjusting to a life without basic amenities to trying to build permanent structures with fishnet and plastic bottles, while navigating the pitfalls of local politics.

Interwoven with stories about the people she encounters – honey-gatherers, wood-collectors, forest officials, even a former poacher – this deeply personal account paints a richly nuanced picture of a challenging yet extraordinary land.
