Chilika Bank$: Stories from India's Largest Coastal Lake from 1970-2007 by Akanksha Joshi

In a canvas spread over four decades, a banyan tree, on the banks of the lake Chilika, silently whispers tales of the lake and her fisher folk. From the times when there was no export bazaar, to the time when there may be no lake.
