The Vanishing Stripes

Jai Mohan (Author) Akash Mohan (Author)

In love with India's jungles & wildlife where excitement & danger is ever present, the authors bring the jungle, animals, & human characters to life. Teeming with memorable characters-like the cunning man-eating tigress of Achanakmar, Masan Baba, the tantrik who took on a leopard armed with a pair of tongs, & 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 & wildlife enthusiasts alike. The book provides insight as to why these man-animal conflicts happen & what we can do to decrease their tragic occurrence. Through anecdotal tales the authors provide tips & tricks for understanding basic wildlife behavior, from alarm calls to eating habits, thus preparing readers for their own personal encounters in the wild. Jai Mohan is a writer & an enthusiastic wildlife & nature photographer. Having lived most of his life in central & northern India, he has spent a lot of time in some of India's most verdant jungle belts. Besides entertaining readers with true jungle tales, some gruesome & some almost unbelievable, his aim is to share the alluring world of Indian jungles with readers & promote greater understanding and, with that, a greater responsibility towards wildlife conservation. Akash followed his father's footsteps. What started as late night drives on deserted airfields trying to spot leopards & chasing albino foxes with Jai on the wheel of their yellow Willy's jeep, or drives to Shahdol, Amarkantak, & Achanakmar to sight tigers & leopards, has snowballed into pure passion for both of them. They spend as much time in the jungle as they can where they both enjoy their wildlife photography, learning from each other & from others whom they encounter on these sojourns.
