Summer means final exams and it also means that it’s time for the fruits to ripen. “When we see the birds in the forest, we know the fruits are ready..." Amjum is a fruit native to the Andaman Islands, an Indian territory located between the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea approximately 1,200 kilometers east of India. Amjum has a sweet and sour taste and, for youth, is associated with summer holidays. The stories and poems in this book depict children’s observations of the changing natural and cultural environment in the Andaman Islands. Youth participating in the Children’s Perception of the Environment program between 2008 and 2018 were asked to compose creative responses based on their learnings from field trips. This book contains a selection of their work.
