The Wider Image: Villagers fear for survival on India's disappearing island
Mihir Kumar Mondal, 51, works inside his betel leaf farm at Ghoramara Island, India, August 18, 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. "Every year high-tide salt water enters my farm and destroys my cultivation, so I have to face a big loss every year," Mondal said.
