The mass stranding of more than a 100 whales and the death of at least 45 along a 15 km stretch on a Manpad beach in Tamil Nadu’s Tuticorin (or Thoothukudi) district presented a shocking spectacle on Tuesday. 

Interestingly, Tuticorin had witnessed a similar beaching 40 years ago, and the reasons are no clearer now.

So far as the role of SONAR is concerned, it may be worthwhile to note that the last stranding in Tuticorin occurred not long after the 1971 war that might have necessitated intense and prolonged scanning of these waters.
