Hero Stone – from Nilgris
Susie Green is a regular ISpeakHindi.com listener who has done interesting work in India. While you and I might be content to see pictures of Tigers or perhaps visit a zoo, Susie Green goes to the jungles in India.
Through a program offered by the EIA – Environment Investigation Agency, a wildlife group working in India, Africa, Europe, and other places, she was able to visit the forests of Paana.
She has written a book about the Tiger which was published by Reaktion Books as part of a series on animals. The book explores how the animals are viewed culturally and investigates the animal in different forms in art and literature.
Books mentioned in the program:
Irregular Verbs, Imperative Tense, George Stone interview (Aug 28, 2010)
Special Guest: Indira Walia (May 4, 2010)
Interview with Dr. Rupert Snell (Sept. 4, 2008)
Interview with Shirish Nadkarni, CEO of LiveMocha (Oct. 30, 2007)
