The phenomenon of climate change has had a spill over effect across the coastal strip of Kerala, making countless homes unliveable due to encroached seas. Global warming is a prime contributor to this drastic change in climate. The people who live in these villages barely contribute to overall carbon emissions, yet they are turning victims of the effect. The situation necessitates a massive exodus of people in search of safer places. Thus, what they loss in coastal erosions is not just their habitats or means of life, but memories preserved for ages, knowledge inherited form previous generations, collective life they had led so far, and of course, the land they deeply rooted in for centuries.
