Documentary 16th November, 2020

On May 20th cyclonic storm Amphan devastated areas of Sundarbans, India. It had demolished houses, uprooted many trees, causes flood in farmlands. Locals lost their houses and took shelters in relief camps. Sundarbans has still not fully recovered from its devastating effects. Through these pictures I tried to highlight the impact such cyclones have on the life and livelihood of the locals.
