Anyone who loves nature, wildlife, forests, and is passionate about saving our precious planet.
Why should you read Sita’s Chitwan?
We live in a world where we are getting more and more detached from nature, disconnected from the millions of species with whom we are connected in some way or another. We cannot survive without them.
Sita’s Chitwan asks us to slow down and look closely at the world around us, be more mindful of our actions, be more aware of its consequences and the impact it can have, not just on us, but also on every other creature that lives on this planet.
