Surging sea levels sinking Indian archipelago in Bay of Bengal

Surging water levels triggered by global warming threaten the lives and livelihoods of thousands of people living in a remote Indian island in the Bay of Bengal.

Ghoramara island, home to about 4,800 inhabitants, is shrinking because of a combination of rising water levels that are inundating the low lying parts of the archipelago and the ever increasing soil erosion around its shores.

Inhabitants like Reva Sutti wear a look of resignation and inevitability as they gaze at the flowing water where their house once stood alongside lush paddy fields.

She has lost her house thrice in the past decade and each time she moved inwards to build a new house surging waters followed her and inundated her abode.
