Through My Lens: Wildlife and Tribal Culture

Mahendra Rathod

Mahendra Rathod joined the Customs Department in the year 1990. Initially posted with the anti-smuggling unit at Porbandar, he explored the long sea-coast of the Saurashtra region of Gujarat with a small point-and-shoot camera. His first DSLR camera in 2013 turned him into passionate wildlife photographer. Over the years, he has visited many of India's forests, grasslands, wetlands and culture-rich rural areas. Other things he likes to do are staying healthy, painting, running, reading and writing.

eBook cover of Through My Lens: Wildlife and Tribal Culture by Mahendra Rathod

Editor's note: I am delighted to introduce Shri Mahendra Rathod, a tax official in his calling, as a hobby photographer and a wildlife enthusiast. He has travelled widely across the Indian subcontinent and captured some poignant moments in the life and times of animals and birds out there in their natural habitat.

Mahendra has not only used his camera lens effectively to ‘capture’ nature in its pristine beauty but also the people who lived around there known as Tribes.

This eBook, the launch book of our new eBooks section, contains over a hundred magnificent photos taken by Mahendra accompanied by lyrical essays on nature; it is the beginning of his journey to be recognised as a serious player in the world of flora and fauna and the environment. I expect Mahendra to reach even greater heights ‘Through My Lens’.
