Step into the ocean. Walk into the deep. Feel the silence. See its wonders come alive before your eyes - the fantastic shapes, vibrant colours, the gliding and darting of sea creatures. Welcome to the coral reef with Uma Mani, painter of corals and passionate advocate of coral conservation.Based on a film of the same name by Priya Thuvassery, Coral Woman is the story of Uma Mani - a story that is as inspiring as the lady herself. It is the story of a 50-year-old homemaker who found the courage to do something as novel and intimidating as diving into the deep seas to see for herself the corals that fascinated her.This book is a one-of-a-kind look at India's coral reefs and the dangers that they face, which in turn impact marine life and the coastal communities they shelter.It is a starting point to explore how each one of us can make a difference to our planet."Beautifully written with illustrations to match. A powerful reminder that no matter our location or level of experience in the water, we all have an important role to play as a voice for our oceans.
