One of Andaman’s Pristine Islands that is turning into a garbage dump!!

This place has huge political and historical significance as this is where the infamous Kaala Pani punishment was meted out to the Indian prisoners. And, to top this, this place is one of Andaman’s pristine tropical islands. But, cleanliness is of hardly any significance here at Viper Island.

As soon as one enters Viper island from its only boat jetty, one can spot garbage strewn around the entire beach and amidst the coconut trees and sadly most of it is non bio-degradable plastic.

What irks me most is that the locals don’t mind this place becoming a garbage dump!! Little do they know that they will lose their income (from tourism, fishing and agriculture) if this keeps going on.
