Lakshadweep’s residents have been protesting a series of changes brought about by administrator Praful Khoda Patel, who wants to make the idyllic islands a tourist hub. How will this affect the archipelago’s economics, ecology and culture? We find out from Ayshabi Kalpeni, Chief Medical Officer at Life Care Hospital in Kerala, who hails from Lakshadweep, M Rajshekhar, Independent Journalist, and Kanchi Kohli, a Senior Researcher at the Centre for Policy Research. Credits – News clips from ANI, India Today, Mathrubhumi News.
