Book Details

If you are not a military-trained commando or wilderness expert but just an ordinary child, then what’s the best way to survive in the wild? Does it help to know how to start a fire by rubbing sticks together, or should you carry a matchbox when you go out into the wild?

A poacher, if caught and convicted for killing a protected animal, can be thrown behind the bars for several years. Yet it’s okay for a government to drown an entire ancient rainforest the size of a small country and every living creature in it for a ‘development’ project. Now how wacko is that?!!

In this book, best buddies Shaila and Sachin face many such situations, which makes them realize just how wacko and absurd some of our attitudes to and dealings with animals, nature, and wildlife can be. Follow their journey to know what needs to change before we relearn to coexist with nature.
