Char (2013)

Char is an island in the river that forms the border between India and Bangladesh. It is there that a boy named Rubel and his family live, along with others who lost their homes.

But this gift is built on sand, a fleeting environmental reaction after the dam upstream was put into operation. More

My Name is Salt

My Name is Salt (2013)

And for eight months of the year, Chhanabhai and his family live here without water, electricity or provisions – tirelessly extracting salt from this desolate landscape. More
