Set in the heart of Indian bush, Subhan and I is about angling for the hump-backed mahseer, the greatest fresh water fighting fish in the world, under the most harrowing circumstances, in a swim which many experts believe cannot hold big fish whilst others state that even if they were there landing them would be impossible. It is against this challenging backdrop, two men-Subhan and the author?from socially different backgrounds battle hard to outwit and land the elusive mahseer in the turbulent waters of River Cauvery. The book is not just a treasure trove of information on angling and life in the bush, it is also about the life and trials faced by the two men, lost in the madness of trying to save the mahseer against all odds. Of special interest to the readers will be the tips on angling. The many anecdotes related to the author's family and life experiences lend the book its heart and soul. It also traces the position of the fish in history as it flirts with the Gods of our world.
