Book Release

The book 'Clash of Waves: Post Tsunami Rehabilitation in Andaman and Nicobar Islands' is located in the discipline of anthropology, and is the first of its kind in India to see disasters from anthropological perspectives, using anthropological concepts and methods. Often media and government focus on the disaster event, the emergency and relief period activities, but long term rehabilitation is often lost from the media coverage and vanishes from public memory. What happens to the people's lives, livelihoods and shelters devastated in disaster, is not known and not documented. This book traces and documents peoples lived experiences and the gaps emerging out of this long and arduous attempt to rehabilitate them. The top down rehabilitation packages thrust on the Nicobarese have changed their culture forever.

The book was released by Honourable Vice Chairman of National Disaster Management Authority, Shri. M. Shashidhar Reddy at NDMA Bhavan on 24 December 2012, two days before the Tsunami anniversary was commemorated.

'Clash of Waves: Post Tsunami Relief and Rehabilitation in Andaman and Nicoabr Islands'. is edited by Dr. Sunita Reddy, Assistant Professor, Centre of Social Medicine, Community Health, School of Social Sciences Published by INDOS BOOKS, New Delhi.
