Deep Natural History of the Indian Subcontinent

Lal had the advantage of growing up in the lap of nature. His childhood was spent swimming in ponds, following bird catchers and snake charmers, and the nights were spent lying on his back watching the stars.
His voyage, so far, has been documented in Indica: A Deep Natural History of the Indian Subcontinent published by Penguin.
