Another Feather in Our Cap

Woohoo! We are happy to inform you that our book 'Nono, The Snow Leopard' (Marathi) won a Certificate of Merit for excellence in publishing by The Federation of Indian Publishers in the category of 'Children's Books (Textbooks and General) - Regional Languages' .


About the book : Somewhere in the mountains of Spiti Valley roams an elusive phantom, and on its trail are a group of bold young men, whose search will transform forever their vision of this barren mountainscape. Enter the world of Nono, the snow leopard, the phantom of the snows. This engaging novella, told through the eyes of high-altitude wildlife biologists and illustrated by an avid wildlife artist, is an uncompromising tale for children. The natural history of the snow leopard and the environment in which Nono roams is revealed gradually, as the researchers struggle with the moral complexities of conserving wild species in a human-dominated world. By the end of the book, Nono is no longer a phantom, but a living, breathing character, who comes to represent everything worth preserving in the last places of true wilderness.
