Format: Paperback
The book made me ponder deeply over the issues of Jarawas, sometimes I felt helpless like the protagonists, and sometimes a little optimistic.
It was highly informative about many of the ecological concerns and the issues pertaining to the Jarawa community which many including the islanders are not aware of. It is a must read for all the islanders because it will make them see these issues from different perspectives and they would be a little more committed towards conserving the islands ecosystem and the indigenous communities.

Few years ago Pankaj Sekhsaria and Vishvajit Pandya edited and published a report titled "The Jarawa Tribal Reserve Dossier: Cultural & Biological Diversities in the Andaman Islands", which was prepared for UNESCO by Kalpavriksha in 2010. Pankaj came back with stories of Jarawa tribal community in this recent novel "The Last Wave: An Island Novel", the subject he studied extensively during preparation of the post-tsunami dossier. The narratives in this fiction cover a diverse range of issues such as history of the British settlement, anthropological depictions of Andamanese aboriginals (Jarawa tribe in particular) and natural grandeur of the Andaman Islands. This fiction brings insights on the islands and islanders, covering facts about Jarawa traditions, language and cultural practices. This fiction also highlights post-Tsunami rehabilitation and resettlement strategies for the vulnerable Jarawa community to reverse their extinction.

'The Last Wave' and impressed me because of its story. I was also fascinated by the author's meticulous engagement with the islands evident in the book. I found the narrative technique interesting to share all the vast information and concerns that the author has about the island. The book is a result of great and deep familiarity with the Andamans. The story itself is warm and there are some touching moments in it.

Even though the book has a slow start, once you decide to continue, you discover many things. Sometimes, The Last Wave reminded me of Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart, in terms of outside influence disturbing the balance of indigenous communities. There are many other questions which it raises about ecology, about people, about justice, and many more.
