The book provides an important account that is relevant both for the present and the future of these beautiful and fragile but also very volatile island chain.

Initial praise for the book:
In this update of his earlier book on the Andamans, Sekhsaria demonstrates his unwavering commitment to chronicling the life and times of these beautiful but endangered islands. Few environmental journalists in the country have tracked one area so perceptively. This book is a testimony to his dedication.
Darryl DMonte, Chairman Emeritus of the Forum of Environmental Journalists in India (FEJI)
Pankaj Sekhsaria has been visiting, researching, photographing and writing about the Andaman and Nicobar Islands for decades. With the archipelago facing unprecedented challenges from destructive development, this collection of his articles becomes all the more significant. Anyone who cares about the magical islands and their enticements the stunning beaches, waters, corals and forests, the unique flora and fauna, and, of course, the utterly fascinating peoples will find this volume to be both highly readable and exceptionally informative.
Madhusree Mukerjee, journalist, author and activist
Pankaj joined our Andaman and Nicobar Islands Environment Team (ANET) expedition to the remote South Sentinel Island in the late 1990s. We were there to fi lm the wildlife of the island and I have a feeling that it was this trip which started Pankajs obsession with documenting the ups and downs of environmental matters that affect the wonderful Andaman and Nicobar Islands. This collection of nearly twenty years of his writings tells the sometimes disturbing story of how we are treating our fragile islands.
Romulus Whitaker, founder, ANET

An Introduction to Immersive Theatre
Chronicles of a Gynaecologist by Tripti Sharan
Women are not dying because of diseases we cannot treat. They are dying because societies have yet to make the decision that their lives are worth saving.'-Mahmoud Fathalla, past president of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics.
Pregnancy is not only an altered physiology, but also has profound psychological and social implications. Sometimes, these changing body dynamics are far reaching. Chronicles of a Gynaecologist, written by a celebrated doctor and inspired by the stories of real women, explores issues ranging from the largely preventable complications experienced during pregnancies, the myths and superstitions surrounding them, to emotionally wrenching situations like postpartum depression. These compelling stories also touch upon topics that society tries to hide under the carpet, such as domestic violence, perversions, sexual orientation, rape and incest. The author tries to decipher the conundrum of womens lives at every step. Every story raises a curtain and promises to be a revelation.

Bras and A Beard
Name: Atta Galatta
About: Bookstore with a focus on Indian Vernacular Writing, and venue for literary, art and cultural events
Description: ome Let’s re-visit our glorious past! Miss the good old days when nothing could beat the “once upon a time” stories that your ‘naani’ told you, while you admiringly looked at her, wondering at her succinct oration? Is that old copy of Malgudi Days collecting dust at the corner of your book-shelf? Those tunes that we hummed while growing up, the poems we read in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu etc. – Did they become a thing of the past? Are you nostalgic for all those experiences that laid the foundation for your interest in literature? If your answer to the above questions is a ‘yes’, then rest assured you are at the right place! About Us A book holds a thousand memories within its pages. Books that have the essence of our origin and our culture are the ones that unfailingly captivate us. Now with a book like that in hand, place a cup of filter coffee on the table for a pure regional fragrance and a sandwich next to it making your westernized taste buds work. This combo is a precise picture of just one of the various other combos that Atta Galatta has to offer to its welcome visitors. In a small building situated amidst the endless hustle of Koramangala, Atta Galatta aims to revive the striking pieces of Vernacular writings, by ushering them into trend. In a venture to bring back the residents of Bangalore to their very roots, we here at Atta Galatta host events that are unique in their very nature. From book-readings in Tanglish to art exhibits and poetry interpretations by the creators themselves, there is an incessant effort to reach a level of impeccable consumer satisfaction. With ‘Atta’ being the Kannada word for play and the Hindi word for dough and ‘Galatta’ referring to vociferous racket; the brand name Atta Galatta refers to the fun and games, as well as our baked goodies amidst the usual hustle of the streets that the Bangaloreans have incorporated into their lives. Cafe Savoury pastries and burgers are always welcome into everybody’s diet; but with a book these delicious treats take the form of an added bonus. Diving into the virtual reality of the titles would undeniably be ten-fold more pleasurable while sipping coffee and feasting on your favourite snack. To cater to this need, Atta Galatta has set up a Cafe, within the bookstore, with an simple but tasty menu. The menu includes burgers, cookies, sandwiches, etc., with their various tasty flavours. One can truly get an idea of the enchanting combination of food, filter coffee and art and literature, only when he/she has experienced it. Walk in any day to savour the delights and get immersed in your artistically rich world. Books A humble collection of books of various genres and languages speaks volumes of the purpose of Atta Galatta. In our attempt to make the highly acclaimed volumes of the Indian writers available to the Bangaloreans, we have collaborated with the experts of regional languages and sought help from them to draw a great list of books. So join us, in our Galatta....
