EXTRAORDINARY STORIES FOR READERS OF EVERY STRIPE.

For centuries, the animal kingdom has captured the Indian imagination. And the land of the Panchatantra and the Jataka Tales continues to give rise to literary masterpieces. Some of the greatest stories in modern Indian literature have animals as protagonists.

Beginning with Premchand's classic, 'A Tale of Two Bullocks', and taking in its sweep some of the greatest pieces of literary fiction to have originated in India including `Rildci-Tikki-Tavi' by Rudyard Kipling, `Mahesh' by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, 'The Mark of Vishnu' by Khushwant Singh, 'A Horse and Two Goats' by R. K. Narayan, Poonachi' by Perumal Murugan, 'The Crocodile and the Monkey' by Vikram Seth, 'The Reflections of a Hen in Her Last Hour' by Paul Zacharia, 'The Last Tiger' by Ruskin Bond and 'Elephant at Sea' by Kanishk Tharoor, the stories in Animalia Indica are guaranteed to dazzle the reader.
