We’re back today with another in our Andaman and Nicobar series, with a conversation featuring Professor Pankaj Sekhsaria. His main areas of research lie at the intersection of environment, science and society and he is incredibly driven when it comes to issues of the environment and wildlife conservation across the country. He is also an incredible and prolific writer and storyteller, and you can find his words tucked away in mainstream journalism, academic articles, novels, essays and more.

Today, he joins me to talk about where his deep connection with the Andaman and Nicobar Islands comes from, and we dissect all that is currently unfolding in terms of infrastructural development on Great Nicobar Island. What does it mean for the future of the island’s people and biodiversity?
