  1.  Its the ULTIMATE reference for a nature lover in Bombay. 25 August, 2013 On Junglee.com
    About the Author: Sunjoy Monga has been a great naturist and his work (including books) are worth appreciating. And his knowledge and sessions with BNHS have been really interesting.

    Why I like the book : Takes you through a visual trail of all the places described in the book. Even residents of the city may not know of some places that have been explored in the book. Vikhroli Mangroves and some other places are worth knowing about and visiting. This books makes you feel like taking one destination every week and checking it off from the book. The book makes you realize how blessed Mumbai is; with a jungle located right in the middle and its biological diversity.
    Read the book for yourself and find places in Bombay that you may never have heard of.

    What I dislike: The book describes the flora and fauna in such a vivid style, that when you visit the places yourself, your own lack of experience of observing creatures in the wild, may leave you dis-satisfied with the book. But the truth still remains that its your shortcoming, and only shows how experienced the author is.

    P.S.Although the book I received that was meant for distribution in Deutsche Bank network, but the content were nevertheless untouched.
