Ethology is the science of the study of animal behaviour. Begun as a passion and passtime of just a few individuals, ethology has grown into an elaborate scientific discipline with ever widening horizons. A brief discussion of the history of ethology, is followed by a few examples of excellent ethological research which could easily have been done any where in India but was not! The paper discusses the reasons for the minimal work done in India, even though ethology is an obvious choice for Indian biologists embarking on a research career.
