However in India, we have the traditional practices of sacrificing these poor creatures for various purposes and at the same time worshipping them as incarnation of A“God”.

ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR

The fascinating subject of ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR or animal mind has been largely unappreciated in our country. Only at the end of 20th century this topic found its way in the Zoology syllabus in the University of Calcutta and over the last 20 - 25 years TV channels like National Geographic, Animal Planet etc, have attracted a crowd of viewers. Hopefully these would kindle the imagination of aspiring researchers. They may gain the impression that worthwhile work can be done in India on ethological and ecological topics and some of these could be as exciting as molecular biology (which requires very expensive laboratories) and can even gradually merge with the latter. Most readers of this book are likely to be graduate / post graduate students of Indian universities. Those who enjoy watching documentaries on the animal world in TV channels and / or are members of Nature clubs / Bird watching groups will also like courses on Animal Behaviour. They already know a lot of facts, only a little marshalling, putting things in order and learning to view the facts in a broader perspective are required and all that is likely to be a pleasant task for them.
