I would like to report about coastal zone of Eastern India,SUNDARBANS situated in the state of West Bengal ,India , South Asia. It is considered to be the biggest Archipelagos in the world having huge habitation or settlement of Human Population.I have visited these areas number of times and I have found that emphasis should be given in the area of plantation of big trees.
