zoos universities and research centres regularly call on him for help “Given the demand I don’t really know why there aren’t more people in India who are interested in practising taxidermy Maybe it’s because the government does not want to encourage it in fear that it will encourage trophy hunting It’s a pity though This art is about to die out in this country and it should not it must not die” he says For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related News Coincidentally, We can stab a voodoo doll.
