The Tiger, The Bear And The Battle For Mahovann - Paperback
About the Book
THE BOOK IS A PRIMER TO THE INCREDIBLE DIVERSITY OF WILDLIFE IN INDIA.
Veera, the old tiger king of Mahovann, is planning to retire from the throne of Mahovann. But before that he needs to resolve an unpleasant situation that has arisen from the arrival of some uninvited wolves at the edge of his kingdom. What follows is an unfortunate episode that leads to Veera sending his trusted friend and lieutenant Bhairav to prison.
Bhairav's son, the mighty Taranath, who believes injustice has been meted, seeks revenge. Under the guidance of Daaga the fox, Taranath imprisons Veera's son Ustaad and sends the prince's mate Sultana and their cubs into exile.
Daaga and Taranath scheme to eliminate the entire tiger family. Do they succeed? Will Ustaad break free? Who will deliver the creatures of the great forest from the dark age that has come upon them?
The Tiger, the Bear and the Battle for Mahovana is a story about self-belief and facing up to insurmountable odds. Set in the animal kingdom, it is also as much a primer to India's incredible wildlife diversity as it is a riveting tale about the choices we make and the true meaning of justice.
