One of the best bookIf you are interested to know about Veerappan s activities, lifestyle and behaviour you have to read this book and big salute to Krupakar and Senani they both given a life to this book by living in it.. A unique read, definitely recommended for anyone curious about Veerapan and insights into his personality the side that s not talked about often. Written in a simple format, this tale, which is a true story, recounts an incredulous two weeks spent in the jungle by two famous wildlife filmmakers as hostages to a seemingly wonderful host, who was believed to be the most notorious forest brigand, with a intimidating moustache, which became sort of an icon.The book makes the reader aware of comparative reasoning to one sided argument and knowledge, which in this case is presented as the author s brief insight into a rare and compassionate side of an infamous criminal, known for his elusiveness and feared for his ruthlessness. Spending 14 days with an evil and live to tell about the experience in itself is a brave story I liked that the book narrated certain facts about Veerappan that no media or news ever captured like Veerappan loved to dance, that s true he loved to dance and Veerappan believed that you don t need to go to a temple to pray, God is everywhere and one just needs to close his eyes and worship from his heart. It is a very interesting book Wildlife filmmakers and conservationists Krupakar and Senani were abducted by the legendary poacher Veerappan who had a huge prize on his head Veerappan was later killed in 2004 They were mistaken for important government officials Later they were joined by a few others whom Veerappan s gang had abducted, notably Dr Maithi an agri scientist.The book is packed with humor from page one and describes their journey from the day of capture till their release In chapter 1, even as Veerappan s men had barged into their house, they were busy wearing multiple layers of shirts, pants to keep themselves warm and also perhaps to ensure a change of wardrobe as they had no clue how long they would stay captive The duo got an insight into Veerapan s knowledge of wildlife, his ability to mimick the calls of the wild alas this is also how his gang captured monkeys for their delicious flesh.True, the abducted were made to walk miles and miles, yet, Veerapan s gang tried in their various ways to make them comfortable When food was running out those whom they had abducted were still served a meal While they craved freedom from captivity there were a few tears when they were finally released The English edition is a translated version, but is a good read and provides some unique insights into human behavior. Describes the forest areas of Bandipur to TamilNadu with a detailed description of Veerappan and his moods.
