Spotlight: Some ‘wild’ women of India


Rohan Chakravarty, creator of a popular comic column, writes: We know of Jane Goodall, Rachel Carson and Dian Fossey. But do you know about these heroes? This Women’s Day (8th March), Green Humour celebrates some ‘wild’ women of India- J.Vijaya, Prerna Bindra, Aparajita Datta, Divya Mudappa, Vidya Athreya, Kiran Pathija, Nandini Velho and Tiasa Adhya (click on names to view profiles). Many more that I wanted to name but could not (owing to space constraints in a comic strip) are Shaleen Attre, Neha Sinha, Krithi Karanth, Rita Banerji, Tasneem Khan, Rajashree Khalap, Ketki Jog and Cara Tejpal.

 The comic appears in Rohan’s column Green Humour, in Mid-Day. His work can be viewed on his blog or Facebook page
