I am interested in the Political Ecology of State formations in post-colonial South Asia. My quest is to find out more about the lines that are drawn on maps and established in Atlases. Who drew these lines, jotted dots and colored segments in contrasts? Why did they draw them? How were they drawn? Moreover, how will the realization of global warming alter this map? My research is specifically focused on the Chars of the Brahmaputra-Jamuna river system in the borderlands of Kurigram district.
