Wild animals

India's Wild Wonders captures the essence of the life and work of two India's most celebrated wildlife photographers. It is an anthology that offers a priceless selection of pictures taken over twenty-two years by Rajesh Bedi, accompanied by a first-hand account of life in India's many-splendoured forests by his brother Naresh Bedi, who has an international reputation as India's leading wildlife film maker. India's Wild Wonders reflects a lifetime's study of animals, birds and reptiles in their natural habitat. It offers rare glimpses of animal behaviour and records the life-cycle of several animals for the very first time. The hatching of gharial (long snouted crocodile) eggs on the sandy banks of Chambal River, in the bandit-infested ravines of central India, the rearing of the young by the elusive, rarely-seen whistling wild dogs; an overly dependant six-month of tiger cub suckling at his mother's teats with her newly born cubs; a tigeress eating the flesh of a panther that it killed in ferocious encounter; these are some of the many extraordinary photographs that make India's Wild Wonders a unique volume.
