Tales of Man-eating Beasts from India

Samir Shukla (Author)

The stories look at each of the four major man-eating beasts that have operated in India to introduce the reader to this very important subject that has moved away from the public eye.

"Jungle fowls and coucals can be found slinking about in the undergrowth, like guilty children, ready to make a run for it if discovered. Partridge convoys move across the forest floor like camouflaged soldiers that believe in using element of surprise as th best form of defence. They can make you jump out of your skin by materializing out of nowhere from the very brush that were observing intently.

Chital herds of fifty strong can be seen cropping fresh grass on the river bank with dainty young ones in two. If you try to get close enough to appreciate their aesthetically formed bodies, they would take exception to your uncouth act like young maidens in a market place. After giving you a disapproving look from their lovely eyes, they would move away oozing even more grace to ensure that you remain enticed."

Indian Jungles are vanishing. not just from our land but from our story books too. Published with a hope to entice not just readers, but also the author, to resurrect the most enchanting and exciting theatre of Indian tales.
