Birdwatching from a Train

A comic inspired partly by Douglas Dewar's essay 'A Naturalist in a Railway Train', and partly by true incidents, that appears in my column with Saevus magazine this month. I am sure every Indian birdwatcher who has taken a train journey will relate.

No to Civet Coffee

Kopi Luwak or Civet Coffee is yet another Asian fad that is detrimental to conservation. Wild civets are captured, subjected to inhuman treatment and force-feeding, only to increase yields. Among the acts that go unnoticed, are killing and stuffing civets for the sake of advertisement, as is a common practice in food markets in Vietnam that sell Kopi Luwak.

(A stuffed palm civet used to advertise a brand of Civet Coffee, labelled as 'Weasel Coffee'. Benh Thanh Street Food Market, Saigon). Indonesia and Vietnam are Kopi Luwak hubs.

The comic appears in my column with Mid-Day today

Are you a coffee lover who chooses to stand up against Civet Coffee and its atrocities? 'No to Civet Coffee, Yes to Wild Civets' mugs and merchandise are available on my webstore here.
