About Me

My photo
Mumbai, India
I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. I'm also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai for 14 years.

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.

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!
