Sundarbans’ ecosystem is very hostile to humans, which is why almost 70% of it is uninhabited. However, there are patches of the human population in the form of small villages, spread near the shoreline. Isolated from the mainland, these villages have their own culture and their own way of living. Honey collecting and selling is a common occupation among the village folk, for which they traverse deep within the forest looking for beehives, risking a Tiger attack all the while for a little honey. From their mud stoves to thatched roofs, people of Sundarbans set a perfect example of how to live in harmony with nature. These are the people who truly embody the spirit of environmental conservation. You’ll get inspired too after taking a walk through these villages.
