Students of history would be far better off by beginning the study of South East Asian history, specifically, Bengali, by reading this account by Ghosh which captures the mangroves landscape, fishing villages, competition for resources and the general beat of life which is far more interesting before it leaves behind a trail of stories that can be collected and called a history ! Introduced me to Amitav and now read anything by him since. ( )

A fantastic book, my third by Amitav Ghosh.
The descriptions are amazing: detailed, empathetic, and never boring.
The storyline is very non-pretentious. Still not out of place as a modern novel. ( )

Amitav Ghosh translates the world of Sundarbans, the mangrove forrests in the Ganges delta in West Bengal and Bangladesh. ( )

Three disparate characters meet in the Sundarbans, the swampy Bay of Bengal mangrove forest at the confluence of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna Rivers. A young cetologist, originally from India but raised in the U.S., has come to see if she can find remnants of a dolphin population long thought gone from the area. She develops friendships with a local fisherman who seems to have an instinct for the waters and their wildlife (but speaks no English) and with a New Delhi-based linguist who is visiting in the area and agrees to serve as a translator.

The plot is developed in ways that give the author a wide opportunity for exploring the natural and human history of the area, and there is a huge amount of information Westerners will normally not have run across. Although some of the locations mentioned are fictional, much of the historical information is based on real events and real locations. The story is packed with background material, sometimes seeming a little forced into the storyline, but overall the reader will walk away satisfied with a good story and a comprehensive introduction to a little-known part of the world.

This is the first work by Ghosh I've read but it won't be the last, that's for sure. ( )

Amitav Ghosh has an extraordinary way of writing about people – their lives, motivations and personal identity. The stories of his novels are mostly taking place in India and Southeast Asia and give an understanding of what life was and is like in these countries – also containing a lot of Asian folklore – as the author himself has Indian roots. His style of writing is clearly different from the Angloamerican narrative style.

His novel The Hungry Tide takes place in the Indian Sundarbans where the lives of three very different people cross: marine cetologist Piyali, self-centered translator Kanai and local illiterate fisherman Fokir. The novel is covering a variety of topics like humanism, environmentalism and the Morichjhanpi massacre (1978/79), all woven together to one main story. ( )

The Tide Country
Kanai spotted her the moment he stepped onto the crowded platform: he was deceived neither by her close-cropped black hair, nor by her clothes, which were those of a teenage boy—loose cotton pants and an oversized white shirt.

She imagined the animals circling drowsily, listening to echoes pinging through the water, painting pictures in three dimensions—images that only they could decode.  The thought of experiencing your surroundings in that way never failed to fascinate her: the idea that to “see” was also to “speak” to others of your kind, where simply to exist was to communicate.
