Goodreads asked Pankaj Sekhsaria:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Pankaj Sekhsaria The Last Wave - my debut novel, was a story I felt had to be told. It also came from about 15 years of my experience of working in the A&N Islands. Reading The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh also provided the inspiration and an idea and the other source was the tsunami of 2004 that caused huge devastation in the islands.

Islands in Flux (to be published in March 2017) is a collection of my already published journalism and academics and I thought it would be useful and important to put together these writings and stories to keep issues of these faraway islands in the spotlight
