    Default M. Krishnan the naturalist, writer and wildlife photogrpaher

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Asha and I am M. Krishnan's grand daughter. I am creating a website about M Krishnan and his work, hoping to inspire the younger generation and encourage them to get involved in conserving our wildlife.

    I am specifically looking for a weblink to M Krishnan's Country Notebook and was led to this website. I know the Statesman brought out CN every week in 2012, as a tribute for his birth centenary. It looks like they stopped after 2012. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I am linking Ram Guha's Natures Spokesman where he compiled many essays from CN.

    Thanks,
    Asha

    Hello Asha,

    Welcome to IndiaWilds.

    I have been reading Mr.M.Krishnan's work and learning so much about natural history. His observations and his easy, lucid way of writing is truly amazing.

    We are thankful to Saktipadaji, who has been regularly posting the column 'Country Notebook' from Statesman in our Natural history section, which has helped so many people (including me) to read about Mr.Krishnan's work.

    Its great to have you in this forum .

    Regards,
    Mrudul

    Hello Asha,
    Welcome to IndiaWilds!

    Great to know that you are grand daughter of our revered teacher Shri M. Krishnan. For most of us here, reading and reading his works and then trying to experience it in the wild is often our focus. Some of us have grown up reading him through his column in Statesman. Our effort is to bring it to the notice of the younger generation so that hopefully someone can get inspiration. Unfortunately in this facebook/twitter generation, attention span and reading habit is minimal. Nevertheless we need to keep on trying in various ways.

    Apart from Nature's Spokesman edited by Ramachandra Guha, some of his other works are compiled by Shanthi and Ashish Chandola in the book Of Birds and Birdsong. It has a foreword by Zafar Futehally. There is another book of the cofee table variety "Eye in the Jungle" which you can refer.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi

    brought out a book in the name and style of 'Jungle and Backyard' in June, 1961 containing select 34 nature-notes written by M.Krishnan originally published in The Sunday Statesman, The Hindu and The Illustrated Weekly of India etc. The illustrations in the book were specially remade by M. Krishnan himself. The book set a standard in nature and wildlife writing and the second edition was published in April 1967.
