This coffee-table book contains over 100 photos of animals - from Bengal Tiger to Lion-tailed Macaque, from Nilgai to Hoolock Gibbon and birds – from Black-capped Kingfisher to Painted Stork, from Blue Jay to Pallas’ Fish-eagle collected from over 30 locations of Assam, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and many other.
Along with animal’s common name, location and their importance in particular state all the photographs also captions IUCN status of the species. The equipments and photographic technology used is also mentioned along in some tricky photographs which is beyond my inept understanding but might be quite useful to budding photographers.
Apart from the photographs, the book also features wildlife hotspots, interest places to stay and details about concession packages for school visits; helping in expanding the tourism and thus the growth and preservation of wildlife. Author understands the concern that if nothing is done to preserve and defend the wildlife there will be a time when these animals can be seen only in such books. He has also pointed out what threats some species are facing and firmly believes that inspiring young adults of our country can make a great change in present scenario and give India’s wildlife a future. Overall it is a good book created for a greater cause.Read more ›
Other points worth noting about the book are-
A collection of
Superb 120 photographs clicked during the course of the Author's travels across the length and breadth of the country are testimony to the author's experience and acumen. They introduce us to not only the commonly known and recognized species of the animal kingdom but to also some lesser known ones, ones the ordinary citizen may never ever have come across.
Each photograph is a fine example of the author's determination and dedication. To cite an example- clicking the leopard was no easy task for him. It took him 100+ safaris to finally sight this most elusive animal. However in the end his determination was rewarded and the proof is there before us in Page 12 of the book.
