Book Details

What is common between a royal Bengal tiger, a lotus, a mango, and the Ashok Chakra? All of these are symbols linked to the Indian identity and heritage. If you have ever had a chance to see the majestic royal Bengal tiger, you must have admired its grace, power, and strength. For these very qualities, it has been chosen as the national animal of India. A colourful peacock dancing in the rain looks breathtakingly beautiful. Do you know that this pretty creature is the national bird of India?

Our country has many such symbols that are part of our culture and heritage. Most of these are related to the environment and biodiversity of India. This book discusses their conservation status and the efforts being made to protect them. It also carries the all-important message that nature is integral to our national identity.
