My parents still believer that the three happenings described in this book are a result of my overheated imagination and too much free time during the holidays.
Meet Anirudh. A bored, neglected youngster to whom the strangest things happen. His quiet neighbours in Big Neem include a crotchety-voiced neem tree, the Chota Bandar gang and Ambi, a pretty ghost with leopard eyes.
Down the winding roads of Sonekote, zips a ghostly blood-red Jaguar. Along with Kavita and Cyclone Shaila, Anirudh must uncover the secrets of the misty, secluded, hill-sides. Red Jaguar takes our hero on the most exciting ride of his life.
High in the Himalayas, a bird of prey waits and watches as Mrs Samson and her troupe of five: Sangeeta, the bug freak; the brothers, Billy and Lokesh; Aarti, haunted by the death of her parents in the same silent mountains and Anirudh, trek their way through the lonely landscape. They are accompanied by Bahadur, Their guide and Budhoo, his faithful mule. Adventure, ghosts, and mystery await Anirudh and his strange friends in these three stories.
