History of the Animal Welfare movement in Madras-Chennai
by Prashanth Krishna (Author)
Published by CPR Publications, 2023 (Paperback)
This is the book with the intention of bringing to light the importance of animal welfare and the role played by Madras (since renamed Chennai), which became the vanguard of the modern animal welfare movement in India. The welfare of animals is an important duty of our society but one which has not been studied adequately till now. The book starts with the ideals of compassion towards animals in the Tamil tradition, whereby all sentient beings have the right to be treated with dignity, kindness and compassion. It was this which made the animal welfare movement in Madras possible and inevitable.
