    Due to sea level rise, many islands in the gangetic delta region of West Bengal, India are facing fast erosion. The island of Mousuni is one such island which is sinking with each passing tide. Homes, lands are sinking at a steady rate and people are staring at a bleak future where the probability of them becoming climate refugees looms large.

    This is an incredibly strong image that shows the undeniable impact of climate change. The lone, faceless figure is hauntingly beautiful standing against the rising sea as it erodes the land around them. It makes me want to call out and help this person—it moves me to action.
