'The Focus' was guest edited by Jayati Bhattacharya and Carola Erika Lorea; the articles add complexity and texture to the public discourse around the strategic importance of the Bay of Bengal, and seek to de-romanticize notions of transnational flows, bringing up instances of disconnections, disruptions, and unequal mobilities within and across the Bay.
