Why the Islanders want to be left alone

Anthropologists marvel at these Islanders who can only speak their own language in this multilingual world. They have several neighbours, the closest living less than 40 kilometres away.

However, the Islanders are so isolated that they do not use the common currency used by their neighbours. The visa which gives tourists access to neighbouring communities is not valid for this Island.

The Islanders do not have ability to produce their own Steel and depend on mainland India for the same.

The Islanders want to be left alone and with a good reason. They know first-hand how contact with outsiders wiped out the Islanders from several Islands in the Andaman region.

So, it is no surprise that they voted yes in Brexit and chose to leave the European Union. The Islanders want to be left alone and we should leave them alone.
