About this book

The Sunderbans, the world's largest mangrove expanse, are nothing less than a hub for naturalists and scientists – a paradise for nature and wildlife photographers and a wonderland for tourists from all over the world. With a unique eco-system, two high tides and two low tides each day, this terrain is very difficult to negotiate, both for Man and Animal.Here the tiger strives hard to catch its prey while the deer is equally vigilant to defend itself from the predator. In such typical natural conditions, all animals have learnt to adapt to the environment.Here, man learns to co-exist with nature despite all adversities. Numerous references to the Sunderbans have been found in ancient Hindu literature, such as the Upanishads and the epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata reinforcing its uncanny aura of mysticism.Sunderbans: The Mystic Mangrove is a lavishly illustrated and vivid account of this paradise, which is today a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
