Shrines to Bon Bibi and her twin brother Shah Jongoli are found in the landscape of the Sundarbans. Bon Bibi’s followers are fishermen, crab-collectors and honey-gatherers, a large part of the island population, many of them poor, who go to the wild mangroves, full of wild animals such as tigers and crocodiles, to earn a livelihood. They claim that when they reach the forest, only Bon Bibi protects them. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Cancel the best answer Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
