Photographer's Note

Recently I traveled my homeland Malda and went to Panchanandapur, a place which has lost huge swathes of land to the fury of the Ganga, and thousands of families have been deprived of their homes and livelihoods.
The people who had been affected told us the story of of their despair and distraught.
There are thousands of affected people like this women in Malda district, who have lost everything to the Ganga as it inexorably eats into its banks.
And the state (government)is ruthlessly ignorant...
