Why Monsoon Matters!

The three girls, studying in the 4th standard in Bilpudi, say the rainy season is their favourite time of the year. “I like to sing and play in the rain,” says Jacinta Rathad. “I play with my brother when it rains,” admits Kalista Hadal. She says her grandfather goes fishing in the river with men from the village. A heavy rain can send water gushing into the river.

Bearcat

THE binturong looks like a cross between a cat and a bear, but it is neither! It has a bewhiskered feline face, a bushy tail and a body covered with shaggy hair like a bear. It is related to Asian palm civets and African genets and fossas but not to bears.

The Teacher Who Did Not Like Classrooms

MY teacher was the world-famous scientist and bird expert Dr. Sálim Ali. He was slim and frail-looking, so we students referred to him as ‘Old Man’ even though we knew he was actually strong and full of energy! This may sound rude, but actually it was said out of our great affection for him and respect for his extraordinary knowledge.

In a Pickle

IT was March. The summerbreeze caressed theneem leaves. Inside, Amma was preparing dosa for breakfast. I sat at the table with a growling stomach and a drooling tongue. I asked Amma if we had some of the mango pickles that Ammamma had got for us on her last visit. Sadly, we had run out of it.
