The Wider Image: Villagers fear for survival on India's disappearing island
Sheikh Aftab Uddin, 66, and his wife Mamta Bibi, 50, pose for a picture outside their new mud house after their previous house was washed away due to high tides on Ghoramara Island, India, August 19, 2018. Ghoramara Island, part of the Sundarbans delta on the Bay of Bengal, has nearly halved in size over the past two decades, according to village elders. "If government gives rehabilitation I will leave," Uddin said. REUTERS/Rupak De Chowdhuri SEARCH "CHOWDHURI COASTLINE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
