ABOUT THE BOOK

SET IN THE INDIAN ANIMAL KINGDOM, THIS WORK OF FICTION IS ALSO A
PRIMER TO THE INCREDIBLE DIVERSITY OF WILDLIFE IN INDIA.


Veera, the old tiger king of Mahovann, is planning to retire from the throne of Mahovann. But before that he needs to resolve an unpleasant situation that has arisen from the arrival of some uninvited wolves at the edge of his kingdom. What follows is an unfortunate episode that leads to Veera sending his trusted friend and lieutenant Bhairav to prison.

Bhairav’s son, the mighty Taranath, who believes injustice has been meted, seeks revenge. Under the guidance of Daaga the fox, Taranath imprisons Veera’s son Ustaad and sends Ustaad’s mate Sultana and their cubs into exile.

Daaga and Taranath scheme to eliminate the entire tiger family. Does Taranath succeed in his plans? Will Ustaad break free from prison? Will Sultana save her cubs? Who will emerge as Mahovann’s saviour and rescue the creatures of the great forest from the dark age brought on by Taranath and Daaga?

Set in the Indian animal kingdom, The Tiger, the Bear and the Battle for Mahovann is also  a primer to the incredible diversity of wildlife in India. It is a story about the triumph of good over evil. It is about the choices we make in a moment of anger. It is about the difference between justice and revenge. It is about the cost of ‘winning at all cost’. It is about self-belief, confidence and facing up to insurmountable odds.
