The Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal surround the Indian Subcontinent. Collectively known as the northern Indian Ocean, these seas are the provider of livelihoods, employment, and valuable seafood for a large coastal population in India. They are valuable for transportation and also tourism. They regulate the climate and the wonderful monsoon rains that fall on the Subcontinent every year. Their aesthetic values are unparalleled. Each mile of the coastline offers the most magnificent scene that remains etched in memory for life. Dr. Yugraj Yadava, Director of the Bay of Bengal Programme Inter-Governmental Organisation (BOBP-IGO), has captured these beautiful moments for the world to see.
