Sky is the limit

Birds’ names need not be Greek or Latin anymore as city-based radiologist Dr Satish Pande comes up with the meanings of scientific names of 1,200 common and rare species of birds in his book Latin Names of Indian Birds: Explained.

If he is not writing books, submitting research papers on some of the endangered birds or traveling to the Andaman and Nicobar islands to locate newer species, then he is involved in training people from all walks of life about birds, their feeding habits, behaviour, bird flight, migration and other ecological and conservation aspects. With over ten books to his credit including Birds of Western Ghats Kokan and Malabar and so on, Dr Satish Pande’s latest book- Latin Names of Indian Birds: Explained, that was launched recently, is yet another feather in his cap.
