Abstract: Ecocriticism facilitates understanding the complexities of relationship between man and nature as presented in literature. This relationship varies from one species to another and brings out the characteristics of nature and human being. India is a country rich in ecology and has its roots deeply dug in the environment. Hence it syncs well with the Environment. The Sundarbans is one such place which was is deeply immersed with the planet’s ecology. Amitav Ghosh, in his writing, has brought out the beauty of the place and has spoken about the life people lived over there. He has brought out nature and man from his perspective in an eco-centric world. He portrays the vicinity and talks about the relationship between the protagonist and nature in the novel Hungry Tide. Despite the various troubles that come their way their sole dependence upon nature is highlighted. The author points out the relevance and invariance of age that dependent upon nature which aspires to remain the same.
