This lush green forest, home to a variety of wildlife, notably the Royal Bengal Tiger, symbolizes the unity of land water.
The women of Sunderbans, have always come together in the face of any adversity, thus exemplifying the spirit of unity that their land upholds. Despite its mesmerizing beauty, the Sunderbans has had its share of hardships including poverty, cyclones, floods, lack of food and principally, lack of opportunities for women, thus impacting them the most and confining them to their households.
