About the book
The Gosaba river stretched towards the horizon...tiny lights on either side of it. The baandh, or embankment, was lined with mangroves; the foliage so thick that it was impossible to fathom that if anything lay beyond. It gave the impression of travelling through darkness to enter into a forest of tides.' Perhaps the most enigmatic of India’s landscapes, the Sundarbans is a land where dense mangrove forests, a sprawling delta and rare wildlife come together to form one of the most bio-diverse regions on earth. Yet, it remains one of the most difficult terrains in the world to live in. The people of the area lead precarious lives – battling not only nature – in the form of constant floods and predators who lurk in the forests – but also an indifferent government that provides little infrastructure or funds to better their condition. Manisha Sobhrajani spent a few years of her life in this fascinating terrain, supervising the construction of a charitable hospital. In Forest of Tides, she recounts her experience of living and working in the region – from adjusting to a life without basic amenities to building a permanent structure with fishnets 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 of the Sundarbans paints a richly nuanced picture of a challenging yet extraordinary land.
