The Wider Image: Tigers attack as Indians are forced into forests by climate change
Ashtami Mondal, 30, whose 31-year-old husband Haripada, died in a tiger attack when he went fishing on the rivers encircling Kumirmari during a nationwide lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), wipes her nine-year-old son Himalesh Mondol's face at their home on the island of Kumirmari in the Sundarbans, India, November 19, 2020. Haripada, the sole breadwinner, returned home from a construction job in mid-March, his family said, days before India's government announced the nationwide lockdown. "He said he would go nearby to fish and make 50-100 rupees to help with household expenses," Ashtami said. He left home before dawn, rowed into the forests and was killed. "If there was no lockdown or no coronavirus, he would have left here to work." REUTERS/Anushree Fadnavis SEARCH "FADNAVIS SUNDARBANS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
