During the floods, water rises to a height of up to two people, the dikes and everything else comes to the same level. We move to a safe distance and when we see a house, we stay with our children there. After two or three days, we go back to our place, rebuild our home and try again to live there.By the next year the same incidents take place, in this way our lifestyle has become worst. We do not know what our children are going to eat in the future. What will we eat? How will we spend our time here? Cow and goat carcasses float by during the floods. It is very sad, where will we go now? If you listen to our stories, you will break out in tears."Locations:Asia-India-Indian Sundarbans-West BengalDate:2 Jul, 2009Credit:© Greenpeace / Peter CatonMaximum size:6438px X 4796pxKeywords:Beaches-Climate (campaign title)-Climate change-Climate change impacts-Day-Floods-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Men-One person-Outdoors-Poverty-Sea level riseShoot:Climate Voices in Indian SundarbansThe Sundarbans is the largest mangrove forest in the world, a particularly ecologically sensitive area.
