Description

In this remarkable book, the author Ranjit Lal who, specializes in humor, natural history, and bird watching creates a symbolic political satire where crows, tailor birds, owls, Tomcats, Bandicoots play the power game.

The corrupt though democratically elected avian government of the Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur, is forcibly taken over by a monstrous white crow from Bombay and his crack force of commando ' crownies', by means of treachery, deceit and violence.

Ranjit Lal uses his wide knowledge of bird and animal life to create a pungent political satire in the tradition of Animal Farm and Watership Down. Very readable, entertaining and topical. -- Ruskin Bond
