M. Krishnan (1912-1996) was endowed with a wide range of interests and amazing prowess as a writer in both his native Tamil and English. He wrote on anything that caught his attention, from dog-shows to cricket, local breeds of cattle to temple carvings, squirrels in his backyard to elephants, gaur and mouse deer of the forests. He did not just write occasionally, but wrote steadily and inspiringly for well over 35 years.
A pioneer in the field of black & white photography, Krishnan’s contribution to wildlife photography and writing on natural history in India has no parallel. In this special compilation, an effort has been made to select lively and anecdotal text for which Krishnan has been recognized, to accompanyu images that he created which are in a class of their own.
