A hilarious glimpse into the complex lives of insects

These fourteen scintillating stories are marked by Ranjit Lal's usual combination of meticulous research, rollicking storytelling and fascinating characters. Nimbu, the caterpillar, resolves to go on a diet inspired by the stick insect. Cheeni Chor, the ant, discovers a refrigerator stuffed with goodies and is driven to rebellion. Ladoo Gulabjamun, one of the resident cockroaches of the famous Golden Thali Restaurant, decides to take on the management to impress his ladylove.

You will also meet the long-jumping cricket, the dung beetles who like to party and a host of other insects who reveal their inner lives as never before and are true to both the insect and the human worlds.

Lal's mastery of the world of birds and beasts, as captured in The Crow Chronicles and The Life and Times of Altu Faltu, also world of insects, in what is perhaps his most comical book to date. Rahul Dutta's unusual and striking illustrations capture the magic of Lal's stories.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
