Maze of Untitled Shores


Who doesn’t like travelling? Who doesn’t like travelling in the greens? Who would refuse to have a peek in the World’s largest Delta? The Hungry Tideby Amitav Ghosh explores the journey of a Bengali-American cetologist, Piyali Roy who embarks on a journey to conduct a research on the Orcaella Dolphins inhabiting the Sundarbans.

Will this journey bring about a change in the lives of other characters…
