Vijay Mane has worked for over six years on The Best of Indian Wildlife, going through thousands of photographs, and carefully and lovingly compiling the best of them into a coffee table book that is awe-inspiring in its magnitude and scope. Featuring the work of almost 50 dedicated wildlife photographers, including some of the best names in the field such as Dhritiman Mukherjee, Jagdeep Rajput, Manoj Sindagi, Niranjan Sant, Sachin Rai, T.N.A. Perumal, as well as Vijay Mane himself, The Best of Indian Wildlife is a mammoth attempt at showcasing not just the diverse wildlife of India, but telling the stories of the grit and determination and unflinching dedication (even in the face of danger) of the photographers who work constantly to capture this rich diversity in photographs and showcase it to the general public.
The book is filled with over 100 colour photos that display the awe-inspiring biodiversity of Indian wildlife in all its forms. From a face-off between a tigress driven by maternal instincts and elephants, to the heart-warming love and selfless devotion displayed by hornbills in raising their young; from the fear-inducing ruthlessness, cunning and military precision displayed by Dholes (Indian wild dogs) moving in on their prey, to the shocking display of power shown by a python devouring a whole langur; from the spell-binding beauty and grace of the Sarus cranes’ courting rituals, to the amazing social structure and understanding displayed by animals of all kinds – The Best of Indian Wildlife brings all these breathtaking moments, frozen for eternity by a photographer’s lens, to the reader. And to ensure that the photographer gets his/her worthy due, each photograph is accompanied by a brief paragraph that gives a little background information and the story behind how the image was captured. Each story is a study in human perseverance, and occasionally, sheer reckless abandonment and courage.
