Nature’s influence in Amitav Ghosh’s the hungry tide

Author(s):

Nivetha E

Abstract:

Nature plays an important role in people's lives. Man comes into contact with nature and ecology at every moment of his life. But constant environmental abuse has turned this beauty into rage. Two concepts have emerged in today's world – eco criticism and ecology. The purpose of this article is to focus on the influence of nature on the lives of the characters in The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh. It also highlights the pitiful suffering of the refugees as they face all odds to find their identity in Morichjhapi. The setting of the novel is the Sundarbans, the "Beautiful forests". It is often subject to storms, floods and famine. It is home to the royal Bengal White Tiger and gangetic dolphins called Orcaella. The Morichjhapi episode is about the consequences of environmental protection projects on the sub soldiers. The novel makes the reader understand that we must strive for a peaceful coexistence of man and nature.
