    nice weekend read which will incite many to think about problems of sharing space with jarwas and nature

    important issues relating to human-jungle interface dealt with in a plain manner. this makes people who have no idea about the complexities about this major issue get a simplistic overview of the whole situation. but the style of writing is not very mature and the romantic/morontic elements are uncalled for....instead of the romance, the author should have looked more at the role of local and national politics and also benefits of tourism... environmental issues such as scarcity of water and ...

    read on the Island

    perhaps one of our best authorities on the Andaman Island decides to write a novel. excellent in portraying the challenges and issues of the island that has a mini-civilizational clash of its own for a long time now.

    somehow the later part of the novel i have not found time to finish though, still the last few pages are to be done.

    if you are interested in the Island and are fine with reading it in an informal manner, here is the introductory book for you.
