Thousands of turtles invade Indian beach!

The Bay of Bengal is the largest bay of the world, forms the northeastern part of the Indian Ocean. It resembles a triangle in shape, and is bordered by Bangladesh and the Indian state of West Bengal to the north (where the name comes from), India and Sri Lanka to the west and Burma (Myanmar) and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands to the east.
