Koi Ankahi, Koi Ansuni, Baat Dheeme Dheeme Kahe Rahi Hain…’

All of us are frustrated in the fast pace of this 21st Century life and we need silence, space and time to breathe, to think, to introspect, to let go. What can sooth the hapless spirit more than sea waves and sunsets, Music and madness , Nature and knowledge..??
Izifiso offers you everything at once; an escape into the quaint Island of Mousuni, one of the lesser known jewels in the crown of the Sunderbans. Rest in your tents and gape at the horizon, the clear sky of Mousuni and let the salt-laden serenity seep into your blood!
And right after the dusk fades away into a windy night, let music and good food please you by a campfire right on the beach.

MOUSUNI ISLAND (DAY TRIP)

By May 2016, the world has lost about five islands to the rising Pacific Ocean, thanks to the utter ignorance of the human race towards the mother that has so long sustained it. There are numerous other islands with large populations that are dying, with the rising Sea levels and melting ice caps. An example would be the Soloman Islands in the North Pacific which needs immediate relocation for its populace.
The Island of Mousuni, an island in the Mangrove den south of West Bengal, the exotic Sunderbans, is meeting the same fate but the people are defending their home. Mousuni has not seen the wreckage of unrestrained Tourism and the old-world charm of sands and waves with the touch of a bonfire and music will show you a mirage that you haven’t seen.
Izifiso invites you chronicle the story of a dying island, a dying culture, and its mesmerizing beauty. Run with the red crabs over the beach, learn about fishing, taste their crustacean flavors, visit the school and interact with the children, walk through the tribal colonies and feel the grief in their gleaming eyes.
