Anjali and her kitten

Anjali Gayen shows us around her house after serving a typically Bengali dinner. Yellow Dal, rice and fried potato are the staple foods for islanders, served for breakfast lunch and dinner with flat breads and sweet tea. Anjali's husband now works in Kolkata as a security guard, providing money for the family since their farmland has been destroyed by the encroaching sea.
