Amitav Ghosh’s latest novel ‘Gun Island’ is a fanciful tale that merges folklore and legend with science, and coincidences with real events. It is his way of using fiction to address the crisis that anthropogenic climate change has created for the earth’s inhabitants. On Off Centre with Anuradha SenGupta, the Jnanpith winning author discusses his latest book, why India can’t be a monolingual state and why the human response to climate change may have failed humanity.
