Salim Mamoo and Me - Paperback
Zai’s uncle is the famous ‘birdman of India’ Salim Ali, everyone in her family is a birding expert, and she herself can’t so much as identify the pitpit sitting right under her nose. Little wonder she is in a big-time flap over her not-so-small problem! Drawing a delightful portrait of childhood, Zai Whitaker recounts her early birding woes and how she winged it.
Prabha Mallya’s pages pick up the humour, and are an arresting collage of a bird-filled Bombay of the past, and troubled little girl with a “superstar” uncle!
