The above photos were taken by Vaishakh Nethrakere in April 07 (click on them to get a better view). These are the absolute last mangroves as can be seen in the bottommost picture. A thin line of mangrovs hugs the coast and is increasingly encroached upon by illegal slum dwellers dumping one sack of debris at a time.

All this happens while the whole area is surrounded by some of the most powerful people in India.
