About Me

My photo
Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. Before that, worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai from 1993-2007. Also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation.

This blog is for aboriginal breed enthusiasts. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Only INDogs (Indian Pariah) and INDog-mix mongrels are featured here. The two are NOT the same, do please read the text on the right to understand the difference. Our aim: to create awareness about the primitive natural breed called the Indian Pariah Dog/INDog. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too.

Portraits

















These were clicked by a friend, Kirti Chavan. One was taken in Mumbai and the others in Visapur Fort near Lonavala. Kirti's favourite subjects nowadays are flies and beetles but I think his dog portraits are superb. I nagged him into letting me post them here (and I'm also nagging him to click Lalee's portrait).

The top one is my favourite: life and innocence in a city of robots...

Thanks Kirti!
