About the Book

EXTRAORDINARY STORIES FOR READERS OF EVERY STRIPE.

For centuries, the animal kingdom has captured the Indian imagination. And the land of the Panchatantra and the Jataka Tales continues to give rise to literary masterpieces. Some of the greatest stories in modern Indian literature have animals as protagonists.

In Animalia Indica, Sumana Roy collects the best fiction written about animals from the past hundred years or so. Beginning with Premchand's classic, 'A Tale of Two Bullocks', and taking in its sweep some of the greatest pieces of literary fiction to have originated in India including `Rildci-Tikki-Tavi' by Rudyard Kipling, `Mahesh' by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, 'The Mark of Vishnu' by Khushwant Singh, 'A Horse and Two Goats' by R. K. Narayan, Poonachi' by Perumal Murugan, 'The Crocodile and the Monkey' by Vikram Seth, 'The Reflections of a Hen in Her Last Hour' by Paul Zacharia, 'The Last Tiger' by Ruskin Bond and 'Elephant at Sea' by Kanishk Tharoor, the stories in Animalia Indica are guaranteed to dazzle the reader.

I just received my package. It was just on time. I truly appreciate all your work Exotic India. The packaging is excellent. I love all my 3 orders. Admire the craftsmanship in all 3 orders. Thanks so much.

Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
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
Love your website and the emails

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
