Islands in Flux: The Andaman and Nicobar Story A Book on Islands writer Pankaj Sekhsaria is the most consistent chronicler of contemporary issues in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and one of the best known. His writings on the environment, wildlife conservation, development and indigenous communities have provided insights and perspective on the life of the islands for over two decades. Islands in Flux is a compilation of Sekhsaria’s writings on key issues in the Islands over this period and provides an important, consolidated account that is relevant both for the present and the future of this beautiful but very fragile and volatile island chain. The book is both a map of the region as well as a framework for the way forward and essential reading for anyone who cares about the future of our world. It is published by Harper Collins and saw its release on 24th March 2017.
Pankaj Sekhsaria is also a researcher, writer, photographer, campaigner and academic. He has worked extensively in the field of environment and wildlife conservation with a particular focus on the Andaman and Nicobar islands. His debut novel, The Last Wave which was also published by Harper Collins in 2014, too was based in the Andamans.
The book is a refreshing one in the era of meaningless romantic fictions which not only engages you but also entertains and enriches, more importantly tells us about what we need to do for the betterment of the world and our future. His immense knowledge about and interest in Andaman and Nicobar is a reason why he has written both his books on it and the impact of the books are everlasting. Islands in flux is a superb read and every nature lover should try reading it once at least.
