Description

Back of the Book

If you are around ten years old and dream of trekking through marshes and mountains, tracking birds, elephants and tigers, this is where you will find out how to chase that dream. Salim Ali, the Birdman of India, is one of the world's most famous naturalists. He made many discoveries about Indian birds and wrote the Book of Indian Birds, which has become a classic. He fought for the preservation of many important forests, including the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary and Silent Valley. He had amazing adventures and met wonderful people. This is the story of his life, told by his grand-niece.

It all began with a little yellow sparrow in his backyard which young Salim found, once upon a time.

GREAT SITE. SANSKRIT AND HINDI LINGUISTICS IS MY PASSION. AND I THANK YOU FOR THIS SITE.
Madhu, USA
I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
