Book Cover: The Tusk That Did The Damage
Orphaned by poachers and sold into a life of labour and exhibition, an elephant breaks free of his chains 
and begins terrorizing the country- side, earning him his name, the Gravedigger.

Manu, the studious younger son of a rice farmer, loses his cousin to the Gravedigger’s violence and is drawn,
with his wayward brother Jayan, into the sordid, alluring world of poaching.

Emma is a young American working on a documentary, who witnesses the porous boundary between conservation 
and corruption and finds herself caught up in her own betrayal.

As the novel hurtles towards its tragic climax, these three storylines fuse into a wrenching meditation on love and betrayal, fact and myth, duty and sacrifice. With lyricism and arrestingly beautiful prose, The Tusk That Did the Damage tells 
an original and heartbreaking story about how we treat nature, and more importantly about how we treat each other.
