Sanjeev Sanyal adapts ‘The Ocean of Churn’ for kids, to educate them about the history of the Indian ocean – books

Principal Economic Advisor Sanjeev Sanyal has adapted his book “The Ocean of Churn” for young readers, in which he describes the history and geography of the majestic Indian Ocean and its significance and relevance through the ages.
