What to do on the Panama Canal: adventure, wildlife and village life
The book was titled “Gind“, The Magical Adventures of a Vanara authored by Harini Gopalaswami Srinivasan published in 2009. The back of the book said its for 10+ years, about a story on three vanaras, with one of them a young vanara princess being kidnapped by a rakshasan. Immediately I thought of Sita being kidnapped by Ravana, but Sita was not a vanara. The description continued that it was about a bold young vanara called Gind and his father Karuppan living in an island of Poompuhar.
