This is the story of a Mogia tribal Ganpat Chouhan who never went to college but has a 40-page booklet on the Francolins and Quails — commonly known as Teetar and Bater — to his credit.

Once an avid bird hunter, this 40-year-old tribal from Madhya Pradesh has become a conservationist and compiled comprehensive data to help the forest department protect different feathered species.
