As editors, we get to see a lot of things before the reader of our books get to see them. For instance, one of our forthcoming books is about the magnificent King Cobra, written by wildlife conservationist Janaki Lenin and illustrated by Maya Ramaswamy. So dramatic is the narration, and so realistic are the illustrations of the snake that our designer colleague couldn't sleep on the day he worked on those illustrations!
But while we get the book ready, you can actually go to the home of the King Cobra----the Western Ghats. Sign up for the "A Rainforest Adventure" about which a friend sent a mail:
Bhoomi Network with Gaia Wilderness Learning Centre, is offering a 3 day programme - A Rainforest Adventure in the Western Ghats on 12th, 13th and 14th October, 2010.
This programme is open
a) for children aged 12-16 years.
b) for teenagers/ adults aged 17 years and above.
This programme has been designed with care to suit children / adults who are familiar with wilderness as well as those who have never camped or trekked before. There will be activities for both children and adults. As a community with people from diverse backgrounds, we expect a rich shared experience of learning and earth reverence at Agumbe.
