    Indica by Pranay Lal looks really appealing. Bookmarking this.

    We talk about global climate change and environmental measures but how many of us know the basics of our own country? I certainly did not know of any of the facts that you’ve mentioned.

    Books on the environment are not attractively written (as you’ve said) and the last time we read about such topics was in our social studies/geography text books. I don’t think many people even know that such books are available.

    Thank you for writing about such books — enjoying all your posts in this series!

      Thank you so much Satabdi. 😊 You are absolutely correct. There are so many excellent books out there that people barely know about.

    The books you mention sound like a fascinating read, Ritu. The covers and titles are very attractive. I had no idea that we had an Indian dinosaur! Coral in the desert and Hippos in Kashmir, so interesting!

      Rajasaurus?? For the first time I have heard about this species to be honest. The books you’ve talked about here sound very interesting. I’d like to give a shot Indica… by Pranay Lal first.

        I hadn’t known about it either until I picked the book. Indica is an excellent read.

      Being a born & bred Bangalorean i do not know the reason for its awesome climate. The book Indica is definitely not my usual genre but sounds interesting nevertheless.

      I am so glad to know that. 😊 We need more books like these which don’t feel like text books.

    Never knew that Bengaluru weather has a specific reason behind it too. Makes me wonder why it rains so much here in Mumbai specifically! Would definitely give it a try.

    This post is about rarely talked books, but they are rich informative about India and its history. Nature and its evolution have a close link with humans and books like this can reveal a lot. Bookmarking these books.

    Wow…first time I heard of an Indian Dinosaur! And the name…Rajasaurus so typically Indian. My grandson knows a lot about Dinosaurs but not this. I will share with him that its more ferocious then Tyrannosaurus. This was a wonderful share, Ritu. My son would have loved to read these books but alas.

    Both the books look very promising and engaging and at the same time informative. We need to know our natural history first and then only we can pass on this knowledge to our future generations. Your cause a chatter topic is extremely powerful. Loved it!

    The Indica sounds a very interesting read. I love your recommendations and I’m sure the wild Himalayas will also be a good one
