Nature's Spokesman M. Krishnan and Indian Wildlife
Nature's Spokesman M. Krishnan and Indian Wildlife
Description
Back of the Book

All in all, once you've gone through this collection, there are only two things that need to be done: begin to read it all over again and hanker for more'
-Dileep Padgaonkar, Times of India

Writer, naturalist, 'ecological patriot' and avid nature photographer, M. Krishnan had an astonishingly wide range of interests. His work spanned six decades, and his nature writings are among the most readable ever written in English.

Nature's Spokesman showcases Krishnan's finest essays: on large mammals, little creatures, nature in temple art and folklore, nature's desecration and its conservation, all described in his inimitable style-wry, lucid and humorous. Embellished with Krishnan's own sketches, this landmark volume, edited by Ramachandra Guha, also includes a biographical introduction.

'It is clearly time that a new generation was introduced to Krishnan's timeless essays. I am glad that this pleasurable but onerous task has been undertaken by that other great stylist and nature lover, Ramachandra Guha'
-Indian Express

'This timely volume of fine writing by a pioneering environmentalist will reintroduce Krishnan to many new readers and also earn the gratitude of his older fan club'
-Outlook

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom

Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
