Bamba Beach, Paperback Book


Hari's family are fisher folk, but with no fish left in their bay, times are hard.

In order to catch the ones further out they need a flat-bottomed boat with an outboard motor, not a rickety, coconut-wood vessel.

But in order to get one of these they need capital, and in order to get capital they need to sell fish...Hari is a boy with a heart of gold, who rises above his humble origins, striving to help his family and show everyone that family feuds and village superstitions are better off forgotten.

Bamba Beach is a contemporary Indian story set in Goa.
