'.MANCHAR: THE LAST OF THE LAKE PEOPLE.'

Manchar: The Last of the Lake People is aimed to raise awareness about the dire situation the ecology of Manchar faces. Manchar is one of the biggest lakes of Asia that used to be home to thousands of fishermen, migratory birds from across the globe and a flourishing thriving flora sustaining wide varieties of fauna especially fish. It is a story of a paradise lost due to the pollution caused by an industrial drain which has all but destroyed the eco system of Manchar and along with it the livelihood of the lake people.
