The remarkable autobiography of a woman who dedicated her life to the welfare of stray, uncared-for animals in India, and founded CUPA (Compassion Unlimited Plus Action) in Bangalore. It tells how Crystal Rogers, who was born in India, returned to Delhi from England in 1958 and was horrified by the barbarous methods by which animals are slaughtered for consumption, the cruelty involved in the transport of domestic animals, the distress and terror of animals kept in captivity for medical research and the agony of sick and crippled animals who are prodded on to work or abandoned because they no longer serve any useful purpose. Her deep sympathy for their plight resulted in her opening an animal shelter called The Animals' Friend in Mehrauli. Soon, she also started taking care of the homeless, diseased and dying people she found on Delhi's streets. The book is full of memorable anecdotes, some touching, some hilarious, about the animals and people Rogers encountered over the next twenty years.Written in the best traditions of James Herriot and Gerald Durrell, this is at once a delightful account of quirky human and animal behaviour, and a powerful argument for animal activism in India.
