I'm a Doctor by profession,working in SMIMER Medical Collage,Surat,Gujarat as a CMO.Started wildlife photography to get peace of mind in 2014 from hectic life in emergency duties and credit goes to my bestie Dr.Pankaj Maheria.We both have a dream of making largest online photographic database of birds sighted in Gujarat and we made a website, call it BoG.

During making of BoG Website i thought to make similar website for birds sighted in indian subcontinent so talked with Dr.Pankaj and look for domain "birdsofindiansubcontinent" but looks not good so bought domain "birdsofindia",looks decent and then talked with 2 more besties Dr.Pragnesh Patel & Viren Desai.Presenting this beautiful website after so many changes to make it better viewing, faster running and most important thing is Google SEO mean your photos will be visible in google search engines according to its view count of your photos.So it will help those person,who wanna publish a book and if your photo is selected then they will contact you directly thru your mail id.

Hope Birds of india(indian Subcontinent) will help to up-loaders for making their checklist, researchers, students, photographer before their visit to specific region during specific time etc.
