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.

  5. That's how I started watching birds; commuting weekly between Kochi and Trivandrum and too bored reading books and magazines! That was in the mid-80s and I used to sit at the entrance/exit and with a binoculars too!
