In love with India’s jungles and wildlife, where excitement and danger is ever present, the authors bring the jungle, animals, and human characters to life with their unique style of writing. Teeming with memorable characters—such as the cunning man-eating tigress of Achanakmar, Masan Baba, the tantrik who took on a leopard armed with just a pair of tongs, and Baba Sita Ram Das, the sadhu who tended to crocodiles but lost his hand in the bargain—and interspersed with narratives of some British hunters of yore, these real life jungle tales are bound to entertain casual readers and wildlife enthusiasts alike.
I am a mere pre-verse in the lyrics; the song is yours,
I am a mere bend in the road; the pathway is yours,
I am a mere cloud that flits aimlessly; the sky is yours,

So dont let me stop you from writing that song,
From finishing that journey, from touching the sky.
For I am a mere chapter in the novel,
The story has always been yours.

It is an honest imagination, replete with events good and bad, as one imagines they might have happened, acknowledging that while no one yearns for bad events in one's life, one cannot wish them away.
