The Bharatpur Inheritance

Bikram Grewal (Author) Bittu Sahgal (Author)
Synopsis Keoladeo Ghana was once best known as the only wintering habitat of the rare Siberian Crane Grus Leucogeranus, in India. The cranes stopped visiting since 2002, but come October, every eye still scans the sky in the forlorn hope that the 'white angels' will return to their winter home in the heart of Rajasthan. A world heritage site, the destination is visited each year by over 125,000 tourists, more than a third from overseas. This tiny 29 sq. km. pocket of biodiversity is a veritable goldfish bowl for students and researchers and is one of the most celebrated migratory bird habitats in Asia. Once the private duck shooting preserve of the Maharajas of Bharatpur and their guests, the Park plays host to 388 species of birds, both resident and migratory. The Bharatpur Inheritance is a photographic tribute to this wild haven and to the stalwarts, past and present, whose lives were spent defending and studying its diversity. The book showcases some of the finest images ever taken in this exquisite and fragile Rajasthani forest and these are supplemented with texts by the most respected and accomplished bird experts, researchers and writers.
