About this book

What do you know about the common mammals, birds, amphibians, snakes, lizards, flying insects and other creatures that you see around Auroville? Probably not a lot – like most people. If that is the case, then here is an opportunity to learn something more about a variety of them, and the role they play in nature, both the popular and attractive ones like the squirrels, birds and butterflies, and the less popular or shunned creatures like the ants, centipedes and scorpions.

At the same time, Footsteps Through the Salad also offers an opportunity to learn about some of the natural phenomena that people living in this part of the world are familiar with, but usually know little about, such as thunder and lightning, the mechanism of the monsoon, nature's agents of destruction, cyclones, etc.

Footsteps Through the Salad is written in an informal manner for laymen, largely free of scientific or zoological terminology. Hopefully it will help expand the horizons of knowledge for many intellectually curious readers, and will instill in them a greater appreciation of the natural world around them, together with a desire to protect and conserve it for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations.
