Bay Of Bengal Quotes

So far from the nearest sea, I am taken aback by the sight of a purple land crab, like a relict of the ancient days when the Indian subcontinent, adrift on the earths mantle, moved northward to collide with the Asian landmass, driving these marine rocks, inch by inch, five miles into the skies.

— Peter Matthiessen —

The Bay of Bengal is hit frequently by cyclones. The months of November and May, in particular, are dangerous in this regard.

— A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
