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.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
