Prestigious award for Coorg’s birdwatcher

S.V Narasimhan is ‘Coorg Person of the Year 2013’

S.V. Narasimhan, a birdwatcher from Virajpet in Kodagu district, is the ‘Coorg Person of the Year 2013’.

Dr. Narasimhan was earlier featured under two categories in the Limca Book of Records for his pioneering work. He was selected in a poll conducted by

He has authored a book on birds called ‘Feathered Jewels of Coorg’. Dr. Narasimhan practices medicine at Virajpet. He pioneered the concept of spreading wildlife conservation messages over the last three decades through his unique hand-painted cards. He was featured under the paintings category in the book of records, for the ‘most cards made and sent’.

Dr Narasimhan, aged 58, has been drawing and colouring the images of birds on the message cards since 1983, sending them the public to generate awareness on the issue of nurturing wildlife, particularly birds. Starting with just 120 in the first year, he has so far sent out 55,320 cards (as of June 30, 2012). He has also been included in the Limca Record under the literature category for the ‘only book on birds authored and illustrated by same writer’.

Dr. Narasimhan has done 310 coloured illustrations in his book. His book is a treasure trove of information on bird species found in Kodagu. A connoisseur of ornithology, he paints the cards made of recycled paper. He draws the outline of the picture using a computer and then manually fills in the colours, using pencils, sketch pens and water colours. The accompanying messages are invariably aimed at preserving the fragile eco-system and the vanishing flora and fauna. The cards were mailed in the first week of October to coincide with the Wildlife Week celebrations. Most of the recipients of the cards are school children, with a view to promote environmental awareness among young people.
