Sundarban has always defined ‘mysterious’, as it has largely remained unknown, undiscovered, not studied and over and above, an intriguing system that is largely misunderstood. And human psychology tends to identify anything unknown as mysterious. Difficult terrain, muddy ground surface, protruding mangrove roots, tiger, snake and crocodile in the land and water, further coupled with prohibitive high cost of watercraft and security issues, make this ecosystem difficult for study.
The authors have tried to make presentation interesting and understandable, for all those who find interest in Sundarban and hope that this book will create the same interest among others. The Tiger was always in their mind as it is inseparable and indistinguishable from Sundarbans and so it gets more space in the book.
