The Kaliani Wind & Other Jungle Stories
By Pustak Mahal
The book contains 12 stories, all related to wild animals; the importance of the wild life is given in all the stories. The chill ‘Kaliani Wind’ speaks about the hidden beauty, the myths. The biggest living crocodile of the world basks on the mud flats of Bhitarkanika. The mighty river is depth less in a long gorge; the blue waters hold so much of passion, the big serpents create the tradition. The distant migratory birds throng the biggest lagoon of the country, so many colours; Chilika holds the fluid history. The turtle arribada on Gahirmatha beaches is the biggest in the world, a strange unbelievable event. The glow worms dances, the wet dark nights are so mysterious.
