If there is one place on earth, that can be called the Tiger’s Lair, it is Sunderbon. The vast mangrove forest, almost six times the area of greater London stretches over India and Bangladesh (10,200 sq km). This vast archipelago is home to one of the deadliest predators in the world, the Royal Bengal Tiger. Unlike the rest of the sub-species, these big cats in the brackish waters of the Sunderbon delta are notorious for their reputation of being man-eaters. About 60-80 people are killed every year, making it the worst case of human-animal conflict in the world. Through my photography, I would like to put forward the story of the people of Sunderbon who live in conditions of extreme neglect and poverty. They are the true second-class citizens of India who have been forgotten and their helplessness sets in a defeatist attitude and has shattered their confidence. Global attention on Sunderbon is at its peak because of the endangered tiger with millions of dollars being spent on conservation yet the alienation of the islanders who live on the fringes of the reserve forest area is on the rise. They have been pushed to the margins, entangled in a vicious cycle and there seems no way out for these 4.5 million people on the Indian side of the delta.
