Joy of Bird Watching
Look Inside the Book
Description
Back of the book

Underlining India’s rich tradition of love for nature and birds, the book deals with the complicated and technical subject of Ornithology in a style convenient for the general reader. With an endeavour to provide comprehensive information about various aspects of birds and bird watching and the integral place that they command in the Indian cultural life since the ancient times, the book also traces the origin of the names of some of the birds. Translated by the author himself from the original Hindi edition adding some new information, the book is likely to be of use for a wider segment of bird lovers.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
