Wildlife of the Himalayas and the Terai Region

India is fortunate in having a great range of biogeographic regions that support a vast variety of plant and animal life. Among the most interesting of these are the mighty Himalayas, its foothills, and the adjoining terai and duar grassland-forests. The flora and fauna of these areas have long fascinated explorers, scientists, writers and artists, and the literature on the subject is extensive.

After serving in various Mumbai hospitals he has for the last 43 years been in active medical practice in Juhu and Santacruz.
