Ah well sir, I am, to be honest, feeling surprised that such details have found their way on to the ISC platform at last and you of all the members did it! Really a big thanks sir for the information sir. Well, here's what Andhra Pradesh can boast of about state animal, object etc.

State symbol:Poorna Kumbham
State Animal: Krishna Jinka or the black deer as far as I know
State flower: Something locally called as Kaluva Puvvu or Kaluva flower.
State Game: Kabaddi
State Bird: Not sure
State tree: Neem tree
State Dance: Kuchipudi
State SonG : Maa telugu Talli ki malle puvvu danda

I am aware of only these things and I may have to find out about the state bird using Google but thanks a lot for giving me a chance to check all these once again.

Sai and Dr. Apurva,
Nice to see the states coming up with their own important details about their states. So for we could see Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra.
I hope members from other state will also browze the net and post information about their respective states, to keep a consolidated record at ISC.

Members, Please cooperate to add information to this thread.

@ Sai

The state bird of Andhra Pradesh is Paala Pitta - a type of bird which resembles the blue bird and this is known as the Indian Roller

Proud to see a Telugu boy of the present age, having such knowledge about his state
