Marine conservationist Siddharth Chakravarthy and  anthropologist & researcher Vani Sreekanta exchange notes on their most recent visit to West Bengal post the lifting of the lockdown. They talk about complexities of food habits, food production, policies that govern the ecologically sensitive areas of the Mangroves, coastal mechanisation, gender politics and the politics of migrating fishing workers and labour.

This wide ranging conversation mulls over the role of the researcher and the engagement, intervention and impact on their subjects.
