The Sundarbans of India: A Development Analysis

A.K. Mandal (Author)
Synopsis The Sundarbans covers an area of 10,000 sq. kms, of which 4200 sq. kms fall in India. This area, once said to be under the sea, lies on the north of the Bay of Bengal. Exceptionally rich in its flora and fauna, this region is famous for Royal Bengal Tiger. It is the habitat of bewitching mangroves, unique biodiversity, abundant natural resources, tiger reserve, sanctuary and reserve forests. This region has attracted the world community for a special importance for eco-friendly development of the area. On the other hand, the current development process concentrates on indiscriminate expansion of roads, building bridges, closures, sluice-gates, sinking shallow and deep tubewells in this global heritage ignoring all ecological values. The author based on authentic data has highlighted the importance of this area from several points of view as historical, geographical, economic, social and developmental, etc. The wealth of information that this accomplished study on the Sundarbans reveals makes this book immensely valuable. The situational problems of the Sundarbans have drawn the due attention of not only the state government concerned but also of the national and international organisations for a needful preservation and development of this largest and very active deltaic region of the world. The book is a valuable contribution, which may serve as a benchmark for the researchers and plan and policy makers for the developmental schemes of the region.
